Get Dynamic Tonal Range with a Pair '61 Zebra-Coil Humbuckers

The 2014 LPJ comes with a pair of versatile '61 Zebra-coil humbuckers that offer a wide sonic range from that familiar crunchy distortion to a great bluesy clean. These pickups are built with off-set asymmetrical coils which provide that vintage sound akin to decades of Gibson's staple tone in rock. And, with the standard features of dual tone and dual volume knobs and a three-setting pickup selector switch, you'll have a wide spectrum for exploring the reach of this guitar's classic and trendsetting tone.

Choice Tonewoods For a Classic Look, Feel, and Sound

The 2014 LPJ's maple-topped mahogany body is designed with lightweight chambering, so you get the resonance and dark tone of a classic Les Paul without the discomfort of a heavy load. The glued in '50s rounded profile maple neck commemorates Gibson's 120th anniversary with a special inlay in the 12th fret, and the cryogenically frozen frets are corrosion resistant -- providing a longer lifespan to each of this guitar's 22 frets. You'll get a great feel for Gibson's comfort and playability when you run your licks up and down this LPJ's beautiful rosewood fretboard.

Eye-Catching Hardware for Excellent Playability and Vintage Look

Along with Gibson's other 2014 120th anniversary releases, the LPJ comes with a chrome tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar, designed to assist in keeping a consistency in tension and sustainability as your rhythm hand chugs away. Durability and reliability are akin to the standards of Gibson's Les Pauls, and with the new enlarged strap buttons, you can move as much as you like during a set without worrying about your strap coming loose. With a great appearance and superb comfort, this 2014 LPJ is a fantastic introduction into the renowned world of Gibson Les Pauls.

Features:

- Two '61 Zebra-coil humbuckers
- Maple-topped mahogany body
- Maple glued-in '50s rounded profile neck
- Three-setting pickup selector switch
- Chrome tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar
- Graph Tech nut
- Dual tone and dual volume knobs
- Gibson's 120th anniversary inlay at 12th fret
- Larger strap buttons for greater strap security
- Gig bag included

Feel what the world of Les Pauls has to offer you with the Gibson LPJ electric guitar. Built with the standard features found on most Les Paul guitars -- a chrome tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar, dual tone and volume knobs, a three-setting pickup selector switch, a dark, resounding maple-topped mahogany body and maple neck, and the dynamic and vintage tone of two '61 Zebra-coil humbuckers -- this celebratory 2014 release will show you just what 120 years of trendsetting history can offer.

Product Description

The Gibson LPJ14 delivers Les Paul Standard-style tone and playability at an unprecedented price. To celebrate the 120th Anniversary of the world's most respected guitar maker, Gibson USA has unveiled an entire lineup that represents several of the greatest values ever offered in hand-made American electric guitars. The LPJ14 is a prime example: backed by a wealth of innovation and experience, it's a genuine Gibson at every turn, at a lower price than you ever thought possible.

The jump up to genuine Gibson humbucking pickups makes the LPJ14 an unbeatable entry to a world of 'Burst-style tones--backed by classic tonewoods, a sublimely comfortable '50s neck profile, and uncompromising Gibson construction quality.

The raw and ready LPJ14 derives its timeless Les Paul-style tone from Gibson's '61 Zebra humbucking pickups, crafted in the image of the hallowed original PAF humbuckers, but updated for the power and versatility required by today's music. Further 2014 120th Anniversary additions include larger no-slip strap buttons, black Max Grip Speed Knobs, a GraphTech nut, long-life proprietary coated guitar strings, cryogenic treated fret wire for longer life and corrosion resistance, a full PLEK setup, and a 120th Anniversary logo inlay at the 12th fret. Put it all together with the legendary Gibson playability, and the LPJ14 is ready to rock -- and rock hard.

Body and neck

The LPJ14 is crafted in the image of the original Les Paul Standard. It's made from a solid mahogany back with traditional weight relief for a lighter strapped-on feel, with a carved maple top and glued-in maple neck with a rounded '50s profile. The rosewood fingerboard is topped with a GraphTech nut, and carries 22 cryogenic-treated frets for long life and corrosion resistance, with traditional trapezoid inlays and a commemorative 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret.

Pickups and electronics

The guitar carries a pair of Gibson's '61 Zebra humbucking pickups in the neck and bridge position. These pickups are built with the power to rock, excelling in heavy crunch and wailing lead tones, yet they clean up beautifully for mellower moments, adapting themselves to your every need. They're wired through the traditional complement of independent volume and tone controls, and a three-way selector switch.

Hardware

Following the stripped-down ethos of the LPJ14, the guitar carries no pickguard and the minimum of ready-to-rock hardware. A satin chrome Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece anchor it all down for outstanding resonance and sustain, while retro tulip-button tuners retain a vintage look, and enlarged strap buttons keep your guitar secure throughout the set.

Case and coverage

The LPJ14 comes protected in a Gibson gig back, includes a truss-rod wrench and owner's manual, and is covered by a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson's 24/7/365 Customer Service.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Real Les Paul and a Awesome Price"
Overall: I been wanting a real Gibson Les Paul for 25yrs and now I finally have one. The LPJ has that true Les Paul look, feel and great sound. The '61' re-issues pickups have good sound, but will be replacing then in the future. I highly recommend the Gibson LPJ to anyone wanting a real Les Paul, but like myself can not spend over a grand on a guitar.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "2013 LPJ"
Overall: I received a 2013 Gibson LPJ in vintage shade as a Christmas gift. The guitar is an absolute beauty. I did install EMG 57/66 black brushed chrome pickups for extra output and quiet recording. (excellent pickups BTW!) This guitar is now a screamer with nice clean neck P/U sounds. Could I step up to a custom or some other prettier LP model? Certainly, but for my look and style of playing - this was the one. The only negative is the neck. It was professionally setup twice before the tech said it was twisted and needed manufacturer reworking. I could see this as it's not a "true" les paul and on the cheaper end of models. Being a maple neck is not the best either. It took just over a month for Gibson to fix and then I was not reimbursed for shipping the jacked up guitar back. But they fixed and I have played a few days. Finally this baby rocks again! I would recommend that someone plays one before buying, but it's a great guitar when it is setup right.
Style of Music: Whatever I feel like playing or the client requests.
