The Purist's Les Paul, Better Than Ever - Great Value in an Iconic Les Paul
From its solid (non-weight-relieved) mahogany body and carved AA figured maple top, to its rounded late-’50s neck profile, to its two ’59 Tribute humbucking pickups (new for 2014), to its cream binding and gold Speed Knobs, the Les Paul Traditional totally nails the tone and feel of the legendary Les Pauls of the late ’50s.

Then add in new larger no-slip strap buttons, a TekToid nut, long-life proprietary coated guitar strings, cryogenic treated fret wire for longer life and corrosion resistance, a full PLEK setup, a 120th Anniversary logo inlay at the 12th fret, and a vintage-brown hardshell case with pink lining to take your Les Paul into the present. It also looks superb in your choice of Honey Burst, Heritage Cherry Sunburst, Tobacco Sunburst, Manhattan Midnight, Wine Red, or Ocean Blue, with an AA figured maple top. Add it up, and the Les Paul Traditional 2014 offers amazing value in a classically-appointed Les Paul.

Body and Neck
The Les Paul Traditional 2014 is crafted in the image of the original Les Paul Standard. It’s made from a solid mahogany back with no weight relief for a solid and sustaining tone, with a carved AA figured maple top; the glued-in mahogany neck features a comfortably rounded late-’50s profile. The bound rosewood fingerboard is topped with a TekToid nut, carries 22 cryogenic-treated frets for long life and corrosion resistance, and incorporates traditional trapezoid inlays with a commemorative 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret.

Pickups and Electronics
The guitar carries a pair of Gibson’s new ’59 Tribute humbucking pickups, designed and constructed in the image of the legendary PAF humbuckers of the late ’50s. They’re wired through the traditional four-knob control section and three-way selector switch, with Orange Drop capacitors on the tone pots.

Hardware
A chrome Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece anchor it all down for outstanding resonance and sustain, while TonePros vintage tuners maintain a traditional look up top. Enlarged strap buttons (new for 2014) keep your guitar secure throughout the set. Vintage-cream binding, pickguard, and pickup rings, with gold Speed Knobs, provide a further visual link to the Les Paul’s of the ’50s.

Case and coverage
The Les Paul Traditional 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.

General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
Having owned new guitars and or used guitars in the past and having a 93 Gibson Les Paul Studio that I thought was a good as they get...that was until I had this 2014 Traditional in my hands! This is the best playing, best feeling, best sounding guitar I have ever had. I was skeptical that Gibson could still produce a quality guitar with weight relief and chambering, fretboard materials that were non "traditional" as in rosewood or ebony, and was set in my mind that I would never consider a new guitar....WOW was I wrong! Simply put amazing!
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Fit and finish are absolutely impeccable! There isn't a flaw anywhere, and nothing in the quality of the Pots or Pups. Considering how other model Les Pauls are now made, including the Custom, this IS the ONLY model I would have. This 2014 Traditional with the 59 tribute Pups is so versatile in a range of sounds via my Marshall amp, and quality and sound is amazing!
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Neck is a perfect late 50s rounded that fills your hand yet is fast, plays like butter. I like a low action as well. the fret work is outstanding as well and am a believer of the PLEK machining that Gibson does. Controls aren't an issue with a Les Paul in my opinion.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Tone monster and SUSTAIN is amazing and goes on for days! You can achieve bright & snappy, or mellow and deep, The pups are not muddy at all and distortion or clean sounds spectacular! Gibson hit a grand slam with these!
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
I got a Heritage Cherry Sunburst AA maple top that puts AAA tops to shame! The matching grain top is simply mind boggling! There is not a flaw anywhere and the one solid piece back is amazing as well. I have never been as pleased as I am with this guitar.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
I thought price was a little spendy but in my opinion ya get what ya pay for and I did! Bulk on the cost and spend less bottom line your gonna get less! Only guitar close to this and it is different in sound cause of pups is the 2013 Traditional, previous chambered models just don't have what this guitar has!
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
Action out of the box is good however I will be lowering it somewhat in the future possibly. It's good enough as is from factory that one really doesn't need to do a thing! I did check intonation and every string was dead on! Flawless!
