New Features of the Gibson 2008 Les Paul

New features of the Gibson 2008 Les Paul Standard include a new asymmetrical neck profile that makes it one of the most comfortable and playable necks ever offered on any guitar. The neck also features an enlarged neck tenon for maximum wood contact between the neck and body guaranteeing increased stability and superb transfer of vibration for enhanced tone, locking Grover tuners which are a first for the Gibson Les Paul with an improved gear ratio of 18:1 and making string changes a snap. All newly designed controls, including custom-made, gold-plated potentiometers made by Bourns give the Gibson 2008 Les Paul Standard a new level of sonic clarity and intensity. Other new features include TonePros' locking Nashville Tune-o-matic and stopbar tailpiece in chrome finish and strap lock buttons. The Gibson 2008 Les Paul Standard electric guitar features a hand-carved figured maple top with matched chambered mahogany back outlined with single-ply binding.

BurstBucker Pro Pickups

The BurstBucker Pro pickups used in the Gibson 2008 Les Paul Standard electric guitar add Alnico 5 magnets to the original BurstBucker design, which captured the subtle variations in true humbucker tone thanks to historically accurate "unmatched" bobbins. Used in the bridge position, the BurstBucker Pro delivers rich, smooth low end response along with a complex, satisfying midrange crunch. Burstbucker Pro pickups sound great clean or they can be used to push your amp into overdrive for the fat deep sound you can only get with a humbucker. All BurstBucker Pro pickups are wax potted to minimize feedback and noise.

The Plek Machine

The Gibson 2008 Les Paul Standard electric guitar is set up on the Plek machine. The Plek is a German-made, computer-controlled machine that carefully measures each fret, along with the fingerboard height under each string, and then automatically dresses each fret, virtually eliminating string buzz and greatly improving the overall playability of the guitar. This process does in minutes what it takes a luthier several hours to accomplish. Every fret is accurately aligned, and the guitar is properly intonated, leaving the instrument Plek'd and amazingly playable.

To give you a choice of how your Gibson 2008 Les Paul Standard guitar should look, the pickguard is not attached but included in the case. To install the pickguard, holes will need to be drilled into the guitar's body.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
