To celebrate the 120th Anniversary of the world’s most respected guitar maker, Gibson USA is unveiling a whole new lineup of Les Pauls that offer unbeatable value in hand-made American electric guitars. The Studio line has been a major favorite with hard-working players since its introduction in 1983; now for 2014 Gibson brings you the new Les Paul Studio Pro, a marriage of traditional tone and modern versatility, and one of the best deals in a pro-grade electric guitar that the world has ever seen.
Made with select traditional tonewoods and two of Gibson's best PAF-style humbucking pickups—a 57 Classic and a BurstBucker Pro—the Les Paul Studio 2014 effortlessly nails that legendary Les Paul tone, while push-pull coil splitting and Orange Drop tone caps make it supremely versatile, too. Further 2014 120th Anniversary additions include new larger no-slip strap buttons, black Max Grip Speed Knobs, a TekToid nut, long-life proprietary coated guitar strings, cryogenic treated fret wire for longer life and corrosion resistance, a full PLEK setup, and a 120th Anniversary logo inlay at the 12th fret.
Put it all together with the legendary Gibson playability, and your choice of high gloss lacquer finish in Heritage Cherry Sunburst Candy, Black Cherry Pearl, Graphite Pearl, Fireburst Candy, Tobacco Burst Candy, or Teal Blue Candy, and the new Les Paul Studio Pro 2014 is a stunning guitar, and truly incredible value for money.
Body and neck
The Les Paul Studio Pro 2014 is crafted in the image of the original Les Paul Standard. It’s made from a solid mahogany back with modern weight relief for enhanced resonance and a lighter strapped-on feel, with a carved Grade-AA figured maple top. Its glued-in mahogany neck features a ’60s Slim Taper profile, a rosewood fingerboard with 22 cryogenic treated frets for long life and resistance to corrosion, traditional trapezoid inlays, and a commemorative 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret.
Pickups and electronics
The guitar carries a pair of Gibson’s legendary 57 Classic and BurstBucker Pro humbucking pickups in the neck and bridge positions respectively. These pickups are crafted in the image of the original PAFs with genuine Alnico magnets, but updated for the requirements of contemporary music. They’re wired through the traditional complement of independent volume and tone controls and a three-way selector switch, but updated with coil-split switching and Orange Drop tone capacitors.
Upgraded Grover kidney-button tuners join a chrome Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece for outstanding resonance and sustain, while enlarged strap buttons (new for 2014) keep your guitar secure throughout the set. A black pickguard and pickup rings join black Max Grip speed knobs, which provide optimum, no-slip control.
Case and coverage
The Les Paul Studio Pro 2014 comes protected in a vintage-brown hardshell case, 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.
