Product Description

As we approach 120 years since Orville Gibson invented the archtop guitar and over six decades since Gibson unveiled the worlds most prized solidbody electric, it makes total sense that the Les Paul Standard 2014 should be the most comprehensively featured version yet produced.

More than just an exquisitely luscious showpiece, the Les Paul Standard 2014 delivers all the unparalleled tone and impeccable playing feel of its ancestors -- but also brings you much more. An asymmetrical '60s SlimTaper profile and compound-radius rosewood fretboard make this Standard's neck the most sublimely comfortable you've ever felt. Fire it up with BurstBucker Pro 1 and 2 pickups with push/pull coil splitting, phase changing, and pure bypass, augmented by a reverse-polarity bridge pickup for authentic single-coil combinations, and there's no limit to the sonic splendors on tap here.

On top of all that, the Les Paul Standard 2014 is loaded with Gibson USA's 120th Anniversary features, including larger no-slip strap buttons, a GraphTech nut, long-life proprietary coated guitar strings, cryogenic treated fret wire for longer life and corrosion resistance, undercut frets over neck binding, a 120th Anniversary logo inlay at the 12th fret, and a vintage-brown hardshell case with pink lining.

Body and Neck

The Les Paul Standard 2014 is crafted in the image of the original Les Paul Standard. It is made from a solid mahogany back with modern weight relief for a lighter strapped-on feel and enhanced resonance, with a carved AAA figured maple top. It has a glued-in mahogany neck with an asymmetrical '60s SlimTaper profile and compound-radius rosewood fretboard that feels extremely ergonomic. The bound rosewood fingerboard is topped with a GraphTech nut, and carries 22 cryogenic-treated frets for long life and corrosion resistance, with undercut frets over binding for extra playing surface. It's decorated with traditional trapezoid inlays and a commemorative 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret.

Pickups and Electronics

The guitar carries a pair of legendary Gibson humbuckers, a BurstBucker Pro 1 in the neck position and a hotter BurstBucker Pro 2 in the bridge, with a reverse-polarity bridge pickup for authentic single-coil combinations. They have independent volume controls with push-pull coil splitting, along with push-pull phase reverse and pure-bypass switching.

Hardware

A chrome TonePros locking Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece anchor it all down for outstanding resonance and sustain, with high-quality Grover locking tuners. Enlarged strap buttons keep your guitar secure throughout the set. Vintage-cream binding and pickup rings, with gold speed knobs; provide a visual link to the Les Pauls of the '50s.

Case and Coverage

The Les Paul Standard 2014 comes protected in a vintage-brown Gibson hardshell case with pink lining, 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.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "2014 Les Paul Standard Min-Etune Heritage Cherry BurstQuilt Top"
Sound: This is my first burstbucker guitar and first with coil splittng in both the volume and tone pots. The effects are not necessarily subtle! More choices means more versatility in one instrument. Feature: The Min-Etune has proved to be very accurate and is a time saver, especially when you're not wanting to have an effect board or pedals inline. Keep the tuner's manual handy as you've got to follow simple yet detailed instructions, especially for the alternate tunings. Ease of Use: There is definitely a learnng curve! While not a 50's neck, it does seem heftier than a 60's neck and the assymetrical neck profile is taking a little getting used to. It's all about muscle memory. If you can play guitar, your muscles will adjust to this neck, absolutely. The volume and tone pots have some resistence to them, so they won't easily be changed accidentally, but they are also sensitive to changes. Be careful rolling off the treble or the volume. A light touch is necessary. I still have some learning to do with respect to it's features, hence "only" 4 stars in the "ease of use" rating. I expect that will go up to a 5 in time. Quality: I can find no cosmetic flaws or flaws in the workmanship. It was worth every penny I paid for it, and then some. Value: I think this guitar is worth more than what I paid for it. Your mileage may vary. Manufacturer Support: I hve dealt with Gibson in the past, but not about this guitar. I've always found them to be courteous and responsive. The Wow Factor: The top to this guitar is just amazing. While that's just a cosmetic thing, and subjective, I think that down the road if I ever sell it, I'll get my money back on it and then some. Overall: An amazing guitar! I can find absolutely no flaws in the fit and finish. The coil splitting is an interesting touch and the +15db boost in one tone pot really is true bypass. Whatever you've got going on is boosted and sent directly to the output, unfiltered. I have yet to master that function but it has a lot of promise!
Style of Music: Rock of any kind, some bluesy stuff if I'm in the mood. Not schooled in it.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Sid"
Overall: Could not be happier with the Gibson. I wasn't sure if I would care for the minetune, but it is so convenient and easy to use. The first time I played on the gibson, you could just feel the guitar is in a class that only gibson can provide. If you want the clapton, slash, or any other rock legend sound you won't be disappointed!
Style of Music: Mostly classic rock, metal, and on the acustic stuff like Dave Matthews, mumford and sons.

It has been tested to manufacturer's specifications and is guaranteed to work perfectly, but it has a cosmetic blemish. It may be less attractive than Warehouse Resealed inventory, but it's priced even lower! Gibson does not offer a manufacturer's warranty on Blemished products. This inventory is a great value.
