Everyone is always talking about “thinning the herd.” At Aardvark, we think it’s time to start focusing on “expanding the herd” — and we have the perfect candidate, this 1991 Gibson Les Paul Standard. Ponder, for a moment, the gold standards for great Les Paul tone—Eric Clapton’s anguished bends on “Have You Heard?” by the Bluesbreakers, Mick Taylor’s bruising leads on the Stones’ “Can You Hear Me Knocking?”, Mark Knopfler’s exquisitely weary glisses on Dire Straits’ “Brothers in Arms” and Jimmy Page’s warts-and-all flurries on “Heartbreaker” — you’d have to both practice non-stop and have the right equipment in order to approximate these monumental moments of recorded history. With this guitar, we can at least help you with the latter part. We paired this newly arrived, completely stock Standard with a brown Fender Deluxe and an older Chandler Industries Tube Overdrive. That setup allowed us to achieve the burnished tone of the ‘60s British blues heroes, specifically Clapton’s throaty Les Paul signature on “I Feel Free.” Alternatively, plugged into one of our stable of drip-edge Fender Vibro-Champs, the guitar provided a more intimate but not less useful tone, with a frothy high end and harmonically saturated distortion at living-room volumes. Comes with the original brown Gibson logo case, complete with shroud. Case has the usual scuffs. The guitar has only minor wear on back and a few of the expected pick scrapes and scratches on top. Frets are in good shape, with plenty of life remaining.
