Gibson Reveal 2014 Les Paul Lineup (A Top Story)


.
On Tuesday Gibson Reveal 2014 Les Paul Lineup was a top story. Here is the recap: (Gibson) Gibson has revealed the 2014 product lineup of Les Paul models. There are guitars to suit any budget and style. You want a light-weight guitar? We got it! You want a guitar that tunes itself? Try a Les Paul with the Min-ETune system! How about coil-tapping so you can get a single-coil sound out of your trusty Les Paul? We got that too! Let's take a look at some of the different Les Paul models available in Gibson's 2014 lineup!

Les Paul Melody Maker: Ever thought you could own a Gibson Les Paul for under 600 dollars? The 2014 Gibson Les Paul Melody Maker retails for only $569! This guitar is the perfect introduction to the Les Paul family of guitars, and it fits almost anyone's budget. The light-weight thin profile body is perfect for beginners, and comes with P-90SR and P-90ST pickups. The 22-fret neck has the 120th Anniversary logo at the 12th fret, and the traditional Les Paul winged headstock.

LPJ: The LPJ is the next step up from the Melody Maker. Featuring a traditional Les Paul mahogany body with weight relief and maple top, combined with a '50s rounded maple neck, this guitar looks and feels like what you've come to expect from a Les Paul. Equipped with our new '61 Zebra coil humbuckers, there's plenty of bite in this baby, and the new larger strap pins ensure that your guitar stays safely strapped in when you're rocking out on stage. The LPJ is also available as the LPM, which has Gibson's Min-ETune™ system, making accurate tuning a breeze. Choose between twelve pre-programmed tunings, or add six of your own custom tunings.

Les Paul Peace: Do you wish you could go back to the sixties, when rock music was new, and flower power was in full bloom? If so, the Gibson Les Paul Peace is the guitar for you! This beauty has a mahogany body with traditional weight relief, and a '60s slim taper neck. The chrome Tune-o-matic stopbar says PEACE, and the max grip speed knobs are adorned with peace signs. The Les Paul Peace feature '61 style Zebra coil humbuckers, and you'll be carrying the guitar in style with a hemp covered case with a peace sign, and a tie-dye interior. Although the Les Paul Peace may be an homage to the golden age of rock, it does makes use of modern technology in the form of the Min-ETune system, allowing you to spend more time channeling your inner hippie and rocking out, instead of tuning.

Les Paul Studio: The Les Paul Studio is truly the workhorse of the Les Paul family. The combination of great craftsmanship and affordability makes it a popular choice among guitarists. The 2014 Les Paul Studio comes with 490R/490T pickups with coil tapping, allowing you to get a single-coil sound from your Les Paul. The mahogany body with weight relief allow for many grueling hours in the studio. The '60s slim profile neck and rosewood fingerboard will help you fly through solos

Les Paul Standard: The Les Paul Standard has it all. The guitar comes equipped with BurstBucker Pro 1 and 2 pickups, with both coil tapping and a phase changing feature in the neck pickup that reduces the mids in your tone. Combine all this with a mahogany '60s slim taper neck, and a mahogany weight-relieved body, along with the Min-ETune™ makes it one of the most versatile guitars on the market. If you like the Les Paul Standard, make sure you check out the Standard Plus, and Standard Premium versions as well.

Les Paul Classic: If you're after that vintage Les Paul feel, check out the 2014 Les Paul Classic. The mahogany body and maple top is paired with a '60s rounded neck. This guitar comes loaded with a Zebra coil '57 classic and a Super '57 pickup. Each volume control has a push/pull coil-split function. The Les Paul Classic has a master tone pot as well as a 15dB Turbo boost mini-toggle switch.

Les Paul Futura: If you're looking for the widest possible range of tones, then the Les Paul Futura might just be what you've been looking for. Equipped with a P90-H Sidewinder in the neck position, and a Burstbucker 3 in the bridge position, as well as coil-tapping, there's no limit to the tonal possibilities that lay before you. A 15dB boost is available for when you need that extra push. Add to all this a '60s slim taper neck, and you got all the tools needed to become the next big guitar hero! The 2014 Les Paul Futura makes tuning a breeze with the Min-ETune™ system.

Les Paul Traditional: The 2014 Les Paul Traditional can be summed up with one word - sustain! This guitar features a solid mahogany body without weight relief, and a figured maple top in six stunning finishes. In combination with our new '59 Tribute Humbuckers with orange drop capacitors, the late '50s thick neck does wonders for your sustain. This vintage beast has traditional gold speed knobs with dial pointers, and comes with a vintage brown hardshell case. - more on this story
