In celebration of Gibson's 120th Anniversary, the Gibson Les Paul Peace electric guitar looks great with its mahogany body and AA maple top. With traditional weight relief, this guitar makes for a comfortable experience when playing on or off stage for an extended time. The '60s slim-taper mahogany neck feels just right, and the bound rosewood fingerboard has undercut frets over the binding for a little extra playing surface. The fingerboard also has a 120th Anniversary banner at the 12th fret to verify this instruments place in Gibson history.

The Les Paul Peace 2014 is crafted in a faithful 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 AA figured maple top. The glued-in mahogany neck with a slim ’60s profile features a bound rosewood fingerboard topped with a TekToid nut, and carries 22 cryogenic-treated frets for long life and corrosion resistance. Traditional trapezoid inlays and a commemorative 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret complete the striking look.
Pickups and electronics
The guitar carries a pair of Gibson’s great new ’61 Humbuckers with chrome covers, wound with unbalanced coils for that traditional PAF-style edge and depth. They have independent volume and tone controls with Orange Drop capacitors, and a three-way selector switch.
The inclusion of Min-ETune automatic tuners, which also work manually, makes the Les Paul Peace an unparalleled performance tool. Simply activate the system and strum to retune your guitar within seconds, or to change to any one of 12 factory presets or 6 user presets. A chrome Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece engraved ‘Peace’ with peace-sign studs anchor it all down for outstanding resonance and sustain, while enlarged strap buttons (new for 2014) keep your guitar secure throughout the set. Custom tie-die knobs are joined by a vintage-cream pickguard, binding, and pickup mounting rings.
Case and coverage
The Les Paul Peace 2014 comes protected in a custom hemp-covered hardshell case with peace-sign graphic and tie-dye 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.
