Gibson Les Paul Supreme Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Stunning figured maple top and back
  • 1950s style rounded mahogany neck with bound ebony fretboard
  • Two vintage-voiced humbuckers for epic tone
Stunning figured maple top and back

In 1958, the Les Paul went from a simple gold-finished, painted top to a cherry sunburst finish over a carved maple two-piece top. The majority of the tops were actually pretty plain, while others - the ones collectors now pay astronomically high prices for - could be found with beautifully figured, two-piece flamed maple tops. Actually, it was the carved top that set the Les Paul apart from the competition. That continued through the instrument's long and storied history. Now the Les Paul Supreme takes it to the extreme with a carved AAAA maple top and AAA back over a classic mahogany body. The appointments combine both new and vintage flavors for a guitar that can play in any style from country to metal - and anything in between.

1950s style rounded mahogany neck with bound ebony fretboard

The first Les Pauls had huge necks, but by 1960 the neck underwent several modifications until it became what's known as the slim-taper design - which clearly is for wimps, right? If you're going to play a Les Paul, you want something you can really grab onto. The Supreme's neck carve isn't quite as chunky as some of the originals, but it's fatter - and considerably more satisfying - than the '60s slim-taper design. Of course, the neck is mahogany, so it's absolutely rock solid, and the ebony fingerboard is bound for an exceptionally smooth feel. But it still has that warm, classic Les Paul feel, allowing easy access to the upper frets so you can really dig into your solos!

Two vintage-voiced humbuckers for epic tone

For 2014, Gibson equips the Les Paul Supreme with a Johnny Smith floating humbucker at the neck. Sonically described as somewhere between a Firebird and a mini-humbucker, this pickup gives you incredible clarity and definition with an acoustic-like vibe. Combined with the 490T humbucker's midrange bite, you've got a wide range of tone for practically any style.
