The Les Paul DC Standard is a double cutaway version of the arched-top Les Paul with two humbucker pickups, similar to the Hamer DC design from the 1970s. The DC Standard has 24 frets, single master volume/coil splitter and tone controls and'60s-style slim taper neck profile. Some suggest that these newer 24-fret carved top doublecut Les Pauls were Gibson's response to the success of PRS in the 1990s. The mahogany bodies on the Les Paul DC Standard were chambered for weight relief and capped with carved figured AAA maple tops.
Production of this model ceased during 2000 and resumed again in 2001. Looking for a more modern Les Paul? The Les Paul DC Standard offers the looks of a vintage Les Paul but gives you the upper fret access of a modern PRS or Hamer. The double cutaway body is made of mahogany and features a bound AAA flame maple top. The mahogany neck features a 24.75 inch scale rosewood fingerboard with pearloid trapezoid inlays and 24 frets.
Gibson 490R and 498T humbuckers deliver killer tones. A Stopbar tailpiece, Tuneomatic bridge and Grover Rotomatic tuners keep it rock solid. This example is finished in a gorgeous tangerine lacquer.It really highlights the fancy wood. Gold plated hardware accentuates the look.
