Description & Specs

Customers who pre-order the new CME Exclusive Les Paul Standard '50s Dirty Lemon Burst or '60s Tomato Soup Burst will be contacted prior to shipment with a selection of tops and weights so they may choose their favorite of what is available.


The CME Exclusive Les Paul Standard ’60s models feature a vibrant, rich red-orange Tomato Soup Burst. Standard ’60s models also come with a 1960 slim-taper neck profile, rosewood fretboard, gold “top hat” control knobs with pointers, and Grover Rotomatic tuning machines with kidney buttons. 

Gibson “T-Type” Humbucking Pickups
The CME Exclusive Les Paul Standard ’60s come equipped with a pair of Gibson T-Type humbuckers, to provide a well-rounded top-end chime! Developed in collaboration with Chicago Music Exchange for an exclusive 2019-2021 run of CME Exclusive SG Standards, “T-Type” pickups are a replica of Gibson’s T-Top humbucker pickups used from 1968-1980—the same model pickup Jimmy Page installed in the bridge his own 1959 Gibson Les Paul Sunburst, affectionately dubbed his “No. 1,” which helped to forever define the sound of ‘70s hard rock.  

Known for their consistency, clarity, and note definition, Gibson’s original T-Tops became known for offering brilliant chime without sacrificing low-end. Meticulous replicas of the T-Top, “T-Type” pickups feature Alnico 5 magnets, a low-to-moderate 7.45k ohm DC resistance, polyurethane insulated wire, and chrome covers, and they are built to clean up beautifully with a turn of the volume knob for incredible dynamic range and pure tone at all decibel levels.

We're right off the CTA Brown Line 'Paulina' Stop Just North of Belmont and just West of Ashland.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback. Please let us know your thoughts! If you have any questions, we’re here for you!
