Product DescriptionAs we approach 120 years since Orville Gibson invented the archtop guitar and over six decades since Gibson unveiled the world's most prized solidbody electric, it makes total sense that the Les Paul Standard 2014 should be the most comprehensively featured version yet produced. Add the stunning AAAA figured maple top to create the Les Paul Standard Plus, and you not only have one of the most versatile instruments Gibson has ever produced, but one of the most beautiful, too.

More than just an exquisitely luscious showpiece, the Les Paul Standard Plus 2014 delivers all the unparalleled tone and impeccable playing feel of its ancestors. 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 Plus 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 full PLEK setup, a 120th Anniversary logo inlay at the 12th fret, and a vintage-brown hardshell case with pink lining.
Body and neckThe Les Paul Standard Plus 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 AAAA 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 electronicsThe 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.
HardwareA 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 coverageThe Les Paul Standard Plus 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.
