Throughout Gibson’s 120 years of building the world’s finest guitars, and more than six decades of the Les Paul in particular, only a relatively few guitars have captured the rare beauty of a prized quilted maple top. Now Gibson USA makes this stunning look readily available to players and collectors alike in the 2014 Les Paul Standard Premium Quilt.
Crafted in the image of the original Les Paul Standard, the Les Paul Standard Premium Quilt is made from a solid mahogany back with modern weight relief for a lighter strapped-on feel and enhanced resonance, with a carved AAA quilted maple top. It features a glued-in mahogany neck with an asymmetrical ’60s SlimTaper profile and compound-radius rosewood fretboard that feels extremely ergonomic. The bound rosewood fingerboard is topped with a TekToid nut, and carries 22 cryogenically treated frets for long life and corrosion resistance, with undercut fret-over-binding for extra playing surface. It’s decorated with traditional trapezoid inlays and a commemorative 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret.
The guitar carries a pair of legendary Gibson humbuckers—a BurstBucker Pro 1 in the neck position and a hotter BurstBucker Pro 2 in the bridge, with a reverse-polarity bridge pickup for authentic single-coil combinations. They have independent volume controls with push-pull coil taps, augmented by push-pull phase reverse and pure-bypass switching.
A chrome TonePros locking Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece anchor it all down for outstanding resonance and sustain, with high-quality Grover locking tuners. Enlarged strap buttons (new for 2014) keep your guitar secure throughout the set. Vintage-cream binding and pickup rings with gold speed knobs provide a visual link to the Les Pauls of the ’50s.
The Les Paul Standard Premium Quilt comes protected in a vintage-brown Gibson hardshell case with pink lining that includes a truss-rod wrench and owner’s manual.
Gibson USA continues the tradition of innovation, premium quality, and made-in-America hand-craftsmanship that started in 1894. Although their flagship Les Paul is the most iconic guitar in history, other innovative guitars and basses have become standards in their own right—like the SG, Explorer, Flying V, and Firebird. Gibson instruments are truly “American made, world played. ”
