You are looking at a Gibson 2014 Les Paul Standard Plus Electric Guitar Rootbeer Burst Perimeter, serial number 140052394. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (8 lbs, 14.5 oz.)

Gibson has been crafting world class guitars for 120 years, and the Les Paul specifically for over 60, but not too many of these instruments have been graced with this tonally and visually appealing figured maple. For 2014, Gibson USA takes the Les Paul Standard to a whole new level of sheer beauty, classic tone and innovation. The 2014 Les Paul Standard Plus is topped off with a carved Grade-AAAA figured maple and comes fully loaded with pair of versatile Gibson BurstBucker Pro pickups and a slew of new features in honor of the 120th Anniversary of Gibson.

The 2014 Les Paul Standard Plus holds true to the original tonewood combination that made the Les Paul Standard the legendary instrument that it is today. This Les Paul Standard Plus features a solid mahogany back treated with the modern weight relief technique, unique to Gibson, which is used in order to reduce the weight of the guitar without sacrificing tone and providing you with much greater resonance. Of course the early Les Paul featured a maple top, but never before did those tops display such beautifully figured maple, in fact, the maple tops of the first Les Pauls in the early '50s were relatively plain and were fully disguised by the flashy gold top finish and even though the book-matched maple tops of the late '50s/early '60s Les Pauls were (and still are) known and loved for their gorgeous figuring, the AAAA figured maple top on the 2014 Les Paul Plus makes this guitar one of the most stunning instruments ever produced by Gibson.

The glued-in neck of Les Paul Standard Plus is carved from mahogany into the asymmetrical '60s SlimTaper neck profile which will fit your hand like a glove while the compound-radius rosewood fingerboard provides you with incredible playability no matter where you play on the fingerboard – with a flatter radius closer to the body for effortless soloing and leads and a rounder radius down near the nut for a comfortable feel when playing those open chords. Unlike any Les Paul before, the fingerboard on the 2014 Les Paul Plus houses 22 frets that have been undercut over the binding for extra playing surface and have undergone a cryogenic-treatment as a part of Gibson 120th Anniversary features, making this fret wire impervious to corrosion which results in a much longer fret life. Along with the classic trapezoid fretboard inlays, the Les Paul Standard Plus also boasts a 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret in commemoration of the 120th Anniversary of Gibson guitars.

The Les Paul Standard Plus comes equipped with a pair of versatile Gibson BurstBucker Pro pickups, made in the image of the hallowed PAF pickups but with updated features for the modern guitarist. A BurstBucker Pro sits in the neck position and is perfectly matched by a hotter, reverse-polarity BurstBucker Pro pickup with coil-splitting capabilities in both pickups. Gain access to those genuine single-coil tones at a simple pull of the independent volume controls, and simply push the volume controls back down in position to switch back to that full PAF bite and growl. The independent tone controls also feature push/pull pots and will further broaden your tonal horizons. For reverse-phase tones just pull up tone control for the neck pickup. Pop the bridge pickup's tone control up to tap into Gibson's innovative Pure Bypass setting, which routes that pickup straight through the output jack and into your amplifier. This bypasses the volume and tone controls which results in superb tonal clarity and scorching hot tones, perfect as an “instant lead” preset.

The Les Paul Standard Plus sports all chrome hardware including a set of high-quality Grover locking tuners as well as a TonePros locking Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece to provide you with incredible sustain and resonance. To cater to that traditional vibe of the original Les Pauls of the '50s, this Les Paul Standard Plus features vintage-cream binding and pickup rings plus gold speed knobs.

In honor of 120 years of building world renowned guitars in the Gibson tradition of innovation and quality, the Les Paul Standard Plus benefits from Gibson 120th Anniversary features which includes enlarged no-slip strap buttons, a TekToid nut specifically designed for Gibson, long-life proprietary coated guitar strings and a full PLEK setup. Included with your purchase of the Les Paul Standard Plus is a vintage-brown hardshell case with a pink, plush-lined interior  to provide this prized instrument with the superior protection.
