In late 1960, Gibson replaced the Les Paul body shape with the SG design. Between 1972 and 1975, if someone ordered as a Les Paul Deluxe with regular humbuckers instead of mini-humbuckers, the guitar would have the word "Standard" on the truss rod cover and would essentially be a Les Paul Standard. Gibson began producing the Les Paul Standard again as a regular catalog item in 1976.

Years of Production: 1952 - 1960, 1972 - 1975 (as Les Paul Deluxe), 1976 - present
