Modernization and alteration of something so iconic as the Les Paul can be a double-edged sword. On one side, there are the purist and tradition-oriented players who like the original product for what it is, while on the other side modernist and progressive players demand change and novelty. Thus far, Gibson`s attempts at modernizing the LP went pretty bad.
Modern Double Cut Standard is the latest in a series of Gibson attempts at modernization. It is offered as Custom section`s Limited Run model, which seriously undermines its potential (mostly due to the limited availability and high price). The new Modern Double Cut Standard costs $3,999 and offers an elegant double-cut body (mahogany back/maple top), C-shaped mahogany neck (the joint is pretty PRS-esque), 24-fret rosewood fingerboard (additional frets might feel a bit claustrophobic due to the 24.75" scale), regular two-piece hardtail bridge, 57 Classic pickups, and Grover tuners.
