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.

Hardware
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.

General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
This is my 4th Les Paul and it's as good as any in my collection. It may cost less than my Les Paul standard models but sounds every bit as good.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Gibson is quality. Always beautiful, well built and solid. There is a reason why pros use them, they really hold up and age well.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
The 60's neck is my preference. Slim and fast, flawless fretwork. Even though it's weight relieved, it's still heavier than a strat but the tones it gets makes it worth while. The balance is fantastic
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Pure Les Paul tone. Everything from clean jazz to classic rock and modern sounds. Like a history of music at your fingertips. The Burstbucker bridge is like a hot PAF, a great balance between old and new school sounds. I didn't think I'd care for the coil split, but I was wrong. The '57 neck sounds amazing when split, one of the few neck humbuckers that does.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
Flawless finish. I got the black cherry pearl. It looks black until bright light hits it then a rich, dark red color comes out. Gibson really outdid themselves with this color.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
A great value compared to the price of a standard Les Paul but you get all the tone. You can't go wrong with this. For an American made instrument that will only get better with age, it's worth every cent. Invest in quality and you'll have something that you'll keep forever. That's why I love Les Pauls.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
Setup was perfect, and I'm picky. I couldn't find anything that needed adjustment. Heck, it was even in tune!
