The jump up to genuine Gibson humbucking pickups makes the LPM 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 LPM derives its timeless Les Paul-style tone from Gibson's new '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 new larger no-slip strap buttons, black Max Grip Speed Knobs, a black 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 new LPM is ready to rock now and into the future, at a truly breathtaking price.
Body and Neck
The LPM is crafted in the image of the original Les Paul Standard. It is made from a solid mahogany back with traditional weight relief for a lighter strapped-on feel, with a carved maple top. It has a glued-in maple neck with a rounded '50s profile, and a rosewood fingerboard with 22 cryogenic treated frets for long life, plus traditional trapezoid inlays and a commemorative 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret.
Pickups and electronics
The guitar carries a pair of Gibson's new '61 Zebra humbucking pickups in the neck and bridge positions. These pickups are built with the power to rock, excelling in heavy crunch and wailing lead tones, yet the clean up beautifully for mellower moments, adapting themselves to your every need. They are wired through the traditional complement of independent volume and tone controls, and a three-way selector switch.
The heart of the LPM is its factory-installed Min-ETune tuning system, which automatically retunes your guitar on demand in seconds, or calls up any one of 12 factory or 6 user presets at a simple strum of the strings. A satin chrome Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece anchor it all down for outstanding resonance and sustain, while enlarged strap buttons (new for 2014) keep your guitar secure throughout the set. New Max Grip speed knobs provide optimum on-the-fly control. Following the stripped-down ethos of the LPM, the guitar carries no pickguard.
Case and coverage
The LPM comes protected in a Gibson gig bag, includes a truss-rod wrench and owner's manual, and is backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson's 24/7/365 Customer Service.
