Appearing in 2008, the Gibson Les Paul Axess updated the Les Paul Standard with a Floyd Rose system and comfort contours. For decades, players have been adding vibrato units to Les Pauls, with varying success. Here, the Floyd Rose system is factory installed so it's guaranteed to fit and work properly, and you're not taking a risk modifying your original Les Paul.

Here's part of Gibson's description:   "Carrying all the elegant styling, fluid body lines, and rocking attitude of a classic Les Paul Standard from the golden era of 1958 to ’60, the Les Paul Axcess reveals a handful of upgrades upon closer examination—all modifications made in the name of maximum playability and versatility. The most noticeable addition is the Floyd Rose tailpiece, a unit optimized for anything from subtle vibrato wobbles to dramatic, rumbling divebombs. Adding a Floyd Rose to a Les Paul in the past was always a major headache, and could seriously damage the stability of the instrument if not done right. On the Les Paul Axcess the vibrato is installed right at the Gibson Custom Shop as part of the manufacturing process, so this potent piece of high-performance hardware interacts seamlessly with the design of the guitar. Partnered with an R4 locking nut, it also guarantees outstanding tuning stability and return-to-pitch accuracy."

This example dates to 2008 and has the original certificates in the case. It is in very good condition all round, with very little wear.
