Capturing all the essential elements that made the vintage “Burst” the icon that it is, the 2014 Gibson Les Paul Signature MinEtune Electric Guitar, while stirring in next-generation upgrades and a host of new features released to coincide with Gibson USA’s 120th Anniversary celebrations. Time-tested Les Paul tonewoods with a figured AA maple top and elegant three-ply W/B/W binding kick it all off. Hot-modded electronics take it from there and launch it right into the stratosphere. Two 57 Classic open-coil pickups with push-pull coil splitting, a built-in 15 dB boost on a mini-toggle switch, and a master tone pot with Orange Drop capacitor yield an astounding array of tones. Top it off with the Min-ETune automated tuning system, and the Les Paul Signature is the perfect reinvention of the world’s most prized electric guitar.

Now 120 years after it all started, Gibson USA brings you a cutting-edge evolution of the Les Paul in a guitar that perfectly blends legendary tone, classic elegance, and 21st century innovation, all at truly astounding price.
An Elegant Les Paul with Cutting-Edge Features
The 120th Anniversary features package includes new larger no-slip strap buttons, black Max Grip Speed Knobs, a black TekToid nut, long-life Cleartone coated guitar strings, cryogenic treated fret wire for longer life and corrosion resistance, undercut frets over neck binding, a full PLEK setup, a 120th Anniversary logo inlay at the 12th fret, and a vintage-brown hardshell case with pink lining. It all looks superb in your choice of Heritage Cherry Sunburst, Ebony, Vintage Sunburst, Honey Burst, Wine Red, or Caribbean Blue; all but Ebony with a AA figured maple top, and a commemorative Les Paul signature pickguard.
Body and Neck
The Les Paul Classic 2014 is crafted in the image of the original Les Paul Standard. It is made from a solid mahogany back with traditional weight relief for enhanced resonance and a lighter strapped-on feel, with a carved AA figured maple top (other than guitars finished in Ebony) trimmed in deluxe three-ply W/B/W binding. It has a glued-in mahogany neck with a comfortably rounded ’50s profile. The white bound rosewood fingerboard is topped with a TekToid nut, and carries 22 cryogenic-treated frets for long life and corrosion resistance, with traditional trapezoid inlays and a commemorative 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret.
Pickups and Electronics
The guitar carries a pair of legendary ’57 Classic humbuckers, made in the tradition of the hallowed PAF, but updated for the demands of today’s music. They have independent volume controls with push-pull coil splitting, a built-in 15 dB boost on a mini-toggle switch, and a master tone pot with Orange Drop capacitor, and a three-way selector switch.
The inclusion of Min-ETune automated tuners makes the Les Paul Signature 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 anchor it all down for outstanding resonance and sustain, while enlarged strap buttons (new for 2014) keep your guitar secure throughout the set. New Max Grip black speed knobs keep you sure-fingered on the controls, and the pickguard is silk screened with Les Paul’s signature.
Case and coverage
The Les Paul Signature 2014 comes protected in a vintage-brown Gibson hardshell case with pink lining, and includes a truss-rod wrench and owner’s manual. It is covered by a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson’s 24/7/365 Customer Service.
