Orville Gibson invented the archtop guitar in 1894. Gibson unveiled the world's most desirable solidbody electric guitar in 1952. Now 120 years after it all started, Gibson USA brings you this incarnation of the Les Paul in a next-generation guitar that marries legendary tone and feel with 21st century innovation -- and astounding value.
The Les Paul Classic 2014 captures all the essential elements that made the vintage "Burst" the icon that it is, while adding a host of features released to coincide with Gibson USA's 120th Anniversary celebration, making it a superbly versatile guitar for today's player. The package includes larger no-slip strap buttons, gold Max Grip Speed Knobs, 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.
The Les Paul Classic's hot-modded electronics take it from this impressive foundation to a whole other level. Two upgraded zebra-coil pickups with push-pull coil splitting, a built-in 15 dB boost on a mini-toggle switch, and a master tone pot with Orange Drop capacitor yield an astounding array of tones. The legendary pairing of Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, with vintage Tone Pro Keys, anchor it all down for optimum resonance and sustain. Add it up, and the Les Paul Classic 2014 offers unbeatable value in a cutting-edge update of the iconic Les Paul Standard.
Body and Neck
The Les Paul Classic 2014 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 figured maple top (other than guitars finished in Ebony). It has a glued-in mahogany neck with a 60's profile. The bound rosewood fingerboard is topped with a GraphTech nut, and carries 22 cryogenic-treated frets for long life and corrosion resistance, undercut frets over neck binding, 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 '57 Classic in the neck position and a hotter Super 57 in the bridge. They have independent volume controls with push-pull coil splitting, a built-in 15 dB boost on a mini-toggle switch, a master tone pot with Orange Drop capacitor, and a three-way selector switch.
A chrome Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece anchor it all down for outstanding resonance and sustain, while vintage Tone Pro keys provide outstanding tuning stability. Enlarged strap buttons keep your guitar secure throughout the set. Vintage-cream binding, pickguard, and pickup rings provide a visual link to the Les Pauls of the '50s, while Max Grip gold speed knobs keep you sure-fingered on the controls.
Case and Coverage
The Les Paul Classic 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.
