A Les Paul for a Whole New Generation!
The Gibson LPX electric guitar pushes the Les Paul lineage to a whole new plateau. GEN 2 Robot Tuning is only the beginning for this highly sophisticated, high-tech guitar. A set of three X series pickups and a piezo bridge give you plenty of versatility to start with. With 55 digital effects presets, 11 tuning modes, and all of the hands-on controls you need to put them all to work, the LPX is an unequalled tone machine. The LPX even sports a beautiful chambered mahogany body with a AAA figured maple top.

- Built-in effects with Bluetooth control
- Robot tuners
- A new paradigm
Gibson's Les Paul X features studio-quality effects built right into the guitar's signal path, courtesy of Gibson's "Pure Analog" audio engine (based on the Freescale multi-processor, used in Pro Tools TDM systems). By integrating the effects directly into the internal signal path, you'll never hear the degradation you get with mis-matched impedance and signal level, from traditional effects pedals. The Les Paul X's output is incredibly low-noise, even when using hi-gain distortion or compression effects.
While the built-in effects cover everything you could possibly want from reverbs, delays, distortion, overdrive, chorus, tremolo, and more, you may wonder how to control all of them! The Les Paul X features six color-coded sliders to adjust effect settings or even switch to a different effect instantly. You also have control over two "tog-pots," which look like standard pickup selectors but can be twisted to morph from unprocessed to processed tones, such as a wet/dry control on an effect pedal.
What if you want a more traditional way to control the effects? Gibson has you covered. The Les Paul X includes a Bluetooth footswitch and expression pedal, which lets you wirelessly change effects presets and manipulate parameters in realtime. You get the feel and convenience of playing with your pedalboard, plus the benefit of the low-noise audio engine driving your effects. Of course, the Les Paul X will sound great through your existing effects too.Robot Tuners
The Les Paul X features Gibson's Robot Tuning technology. The latest robot tuners are smaller, lighter, faster, and more durable than ever before. This is huge if you rely on multiple tunings in your music or if you play in a cover band and need to change tunings in a flash. Just flip a switch to enter tuning mode, select the tuning you want (standard, drop-d, open tunings, etc.), and strum the strings. The Robot Tuners start tuning, and in a matter of seconds, your tuning is locked in and ready to play.A new paradigm
Over the years, Gibson has pushed the limits of guitar functionality with innovations such as Robot Tuning and hex pickups with individual outputs for each string. What makes the Les Paul X so unique is not just the staggering array of tech features. It's the way these features are integrated so smoothly into the playing experience. Get the Les Paul X in your hands and play it just like any guitar, and you'll know immediately that you're playing a Gibson. Then spend some time exploring the inspiring creative possibilities, and you'll realize that there has never been a guitar like the Gibson Les Paul X.Gibson LPX Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
