An Upscale Les Paul with Min-ETune!
At Sweetwater, we've been thrilled to see how the Gibson Les Paul Signature solidbody electric guitar - considered by some to be the Cadillac of Les Pauls - has evolved over the last several years. This 2014 model continues the trend of packaging great looks, killer tone, and innovative features all into an electric guitar you'll be thrilled to take onstage or into the studio. A pair of open-coil '57 Classic humbuckers give you pure PAF tone, whereas an onboard 15dB Turbo Boost switch lets you hot rod you sound with the flick of a toggle. Add to that a lightweight modern weight relief body and a Min-ETune robot tuner system, and there's no doubt this Les Paul Signature guitar is ready for anything.Gibson 2014 Les Paul Signature Solidbody Electric Guitar with Mini-ETune at a Glance:

Gibson's Les Paul electric guitars come with a wide variety of pickup combinations, but the '57 Classic humbuckers found on the Les Paul Signature are perennial favorites here at Sweetwater. That's because these pickups were formulated to give you the timeless sound of Gibson's original PAF humbuckers, whose power, punch, and clarity are nothing short of legend. And to up the ante, Gibson outfitted this Les Paul Signature with a special Turbo Boost switch, which lets you call up and extra 15dB of totally clear gain. It's like having a boost pedal built right into your guitar!Your back will love this Les Paul's modern weight relief body
Here's a fact: the same characteristics that make mahogany an excellent tonewood also make it substantially heavier than choices like ash or alder. Over the course of an evening, that extra weight can become extremely tiresome on your back and shoulder. The modern weight relief chambering Gibson chose for the Les Paul Signature get rid of the vast majority of that added weight, without disturbing its fundamental tonal character. If anything, you'll notice a slight increase in resonance, which complements the Les Paul Signature's natural sustain and complex harmonics beautifully.Min-ETune helps you broaden your range as a guitarist
We know you already know how to tune your guitar, but that's not what the Les Paul Signature's Min-ETune system is all about. Sure, it's a handy time saver, but the real power is in the alternate tunings. When's the last time you were in a musical slump? Did you try an alternate guitar tuning for some fresh inspiration? With the ability to re-tune your Les Paul Signature to DADGAD, Open D, or any other alternate tuning in seconds, you'll have no reason not to experiment in new musical ways. And if you end up writing a new song in an alternate tuning, the Min-ETune system will take seconds instead of minutes to re-tune when you're ready to perform it live.Gibson 2014 Les Paul Signature Solidbody Electric Guitar with Mini-ETune Features:
