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.

What is your overall opinion of this product?
When I first starting looking for a new Les Paul, I wanted a standard, but I don't need coil splitting and an automated tuner. So, I decided on the Traditional. 2 pick ups, 2 Tine, and 2 Volume, one toggle switch. What else do you need. I never considered buying a 2014 model, because I really hate the anniversary inlay at the 12th fret, or the speed knobs. A $12.99 pack of gold top hats fixed the knobs, but unfortunately the I'm stuck with the inlay. I finally decided to give it a try. I am so glad I did, because everything else about this guitar is beyond great! This is my new #1 guitar!!!
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
I have always loved Les Paul's for their beauty, and craftsmanship. I love the fact that they still use most of the original machines, and very little automation. There really is no substitute for the craftsmanship, and pride that the men and woman put into these guitars.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
I have to say that I love the 50's neck profile. It just feels so solid, and fits my hand perfected.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
I have to say that I love the these new. '59 Tributes!!! The bridge pick up is bright, but still has great low end. The neck pickup has a really warm tone, but is not muddy. Even using heavy gain the individual notes come through. I haven't heard anything like these on a stock Gibson in a long time. It's like a VOS without the huge price tag.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
I have always loved the burst finish on the Les Paul's. The fact they are hand sprayed means everyone is unique. This why I ordered by serial number to ensure I got the one I wanted. I was sent a different guitar. I was upset until I saw this one. It is even more beautiful than I could have hoped.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
I have never been happier with a guitar purchase. Enough said.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
I have always loved the standard set up on the Les Paul's. It just fits my playing perfectly. The guitar plays so smooth and is so comfortable, right out of the box. I didn't have to adjust anything.
