Reverb Estimated Used Price Range

  • $1,200$1,880

The Les Paul Standard has been through its share of changes since the '50s, but remains one of the world's most popular and iconic instruments. From the late '70s onward, the Standard has stayed more or less the same with just some variations in finish and hardware options, as well as the release of various special editions. Standards with higher grade (AA or AAA) flamed Maple tops are worth more than plain-top editions.
