The headstock of the Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited is equipped with Gibson's revolutionary Robot Tuners™, originally introduced on the Robot Guitar, then improved for the Darkfire and Dusk Tiger.
You can access any preset tuning in less than one second, which means you can realistically change tunings in the middle of a song, if needed, and the Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited even includes an added bank of tuning presets. What's more, the tuners are automatically engaged to operate both electronically or individually by hand.
The guitar's headstock is adorned with a chromed truss rod cover, in the shape of Gibson's traditional antique bell truss rod cover.
The guitar includes chromed straplock strap buttons to keep it safely strapped on when you're wailing.
This model carries a five-ply black/w/b/w/b Les Paul style pickguard.
The trim package on the Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited includes a blend of timeless Les Paul cosmetics and exclusive touches befitting a Limited Edition model.
The Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited is fitted with genuine Gibson strings, sizes .010-.046.
Tuning Capacity/Battery Longevity
The Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited's battery system and power circuit have also been significantly improved to last nearly twice as long, even with the guitar's enhanced performance. You can now expect nearly 500 tunings from a single charge.
The Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited comes with two rechargeable batteries of a type that are widely available and can be replaced at most convenience stores, along with a wall-plug battery charger.
Batteries are changed in seconds via a click-latch door in the back of the guitar, so you can even keep a spare charged battery in your pocket and change in the middle of a live set, if necessary.
In 1954, Gibson revolutionized guitar hardware when it debuted the Tune-o-matic bridge, setting a standard for simplicity and functionality that has never been bettered. The Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited carries a groundbreaking reinvention of the classic Tune-o-matic which actually consists of six individual piezo pickups — one for each saddle/string — so the Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited's bridge is not only a functional piece of hardware, but is also at the heart of the guitar's tonal capabilities.
The Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited carries a new tailpiece that is unique to this model, and which has been designed by Gibson to provide excellent resonant coupling between strings and body and a sturdy, efficient termination point to enhance tuning stability. This tailpiece is made from Zamak and plated in chrome.
The volume control knobs on the Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited are black top-hat knobs with silver inserts, alongside a master tone control with a black speed knob, and an illuminated MCK knob.
