The Lee-Wick Standard Model of Grinstein, O’Connell, and Wise introduces negative-norm partner states to SM fields in order to tame the hierarchy problem. While it has been shown that bounds on electroweak precision parameters in the original ["N=2"] model require the masses of the partners to be quite large (>3 TeV), the model can be extended to include an additional, positive-norm partners ["N=3"], relaxing the mass bounds to values more easily testable at the LHC. We show that the new gauge bosons in the N=3 LW model produce a distinctive spectrum, well above SM background and easily distinguishable from other candidate BSM models.
