You are looking at a Gibson 2014 Les Paul Signature Electric Guitar Carribean Blue, serial number 140036364. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (8 lbs, 14.3 oz.)

Gibson has always been acknowledged for their keen eye for innovation – from Orville's invention of the archtop guitar in 1894 to the release of their first solidbody guitar which became an instant classic, the legendary Les Paul in 1952. In commemoration of their 120 years of innovation, Gibson USA presents to you a revolutionary Les Paul that captures the legendary tone and charm of those coveted vintage “Bursts” Les Pauls from the late '50s/early '60s and blends that with some of Gibson's most cutting-edge upgrades yet to give you the 2014 Les Paul Signature.

The pairing of maple and mahogany has always been one of the most important characteristics that define the Les Paul guitars. The top of the 2014 Les Paul Signature is carved from AA figured maple (with the exception of the Ebony finish) with a traditional weight relieved mahogany back to reduce the weight of these heavy-by-nature guitars while retaining a solid feel and enhancing their overall resonance. To cater to this Les Paul Signature's elegance, the top features 3-ply white/black/white binding and if offered in several breathtaking finishes including carribean blue, heritage cherry sunburst, vintage sunburst, honey burst, wine red and ebony. The glued-in mahogany neck is carved into the 'slim 60s neck profile, one of Gibson's most sought-after neck profiles due to it's sleek, comfortable shape. The necks topped with a white bound rosewood fingerboard that houses 22 undercut, cryogenic-treated frets to resist fret corrosion and ensure a long-lasting fret life. The fingerboard also boasts traditional trapezoid inlays with a commemorative 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret.

The 2014 Les Paul Signature comes equipped with a pair of '57 Classic humbuckers that are made in the image of those revered PAF pickups but modified for the demanding players of today. While these pickups emulate the classic tone of those vintage Les Pauls, they are routed through groundbreaking electronics which features a volume control for each pickup with push-pull coil-splitting capabilities, a master tone control with an Orange Drop capacitor and a 3-way toggle switch. The 2014 Les Paul Signature also comes loaded with an onboard 15dB boost to give you that added “umph” needed for instant solos and leads at the switch of the mini toggle – on the fly boost that doesn't require any space on your already-crowded pedalboard.

This Les Paul Signature features the innovative built-in Min-ETune, an automated tuning system that allows you to choose between any of the 12 factory tunings or 6 user presets and when a tuning is picked just simply strum the strings and watch the Les Paul Signature tune itself in a matter of seconds with unmatched precision. For optimal sustain, the 2014 Les Paul Signature features a traditional Tune-O-Matic bridge/Stopbar Tailpiece combination while the enlarged no-slip strap buttons, all new as a part of Gibson 120th Anniversary features, will keep your guitar secure throughout your performance. Other additions to the 2014 Gibson 120th Anniversary features include Black Max Grip speed knobs, a black GraphTech nut, long-life Cleartone coated guitar strings, Les Paul's signature silkscreened on the pickguard and a full Gibson PLEK setup to top it off. The 2014 Les Paul Signature comes fully protected by a pink-lined, vintage-brown hardshell case.
