The Futura joins the anniversary celebration with some significant upgrades.

The Gibson 2014 Les Paul Futura Plain Top Electric Guitar celebrates Gibson's 120th Anniversary in style. It has a mahogany body with modern weight relief and a plain maple top. The maple neck has a '60s slim taper. The rosewood fingerboard has trapezoid inlays and sports a 120th Anniversary banner at the 12th fret. Other key features include a P-90H Sidewinder Humbucker and BurstBucker 3 pickups with Push/Push coil tap and 15dB boost. Also comes with max grip speed knobs, the Min-ETune system, Graph Tech nut and chrome locking tune-o-matic bridge.

Min-ETune automated “robot” tuners
Min-ETune is a small compact battery powered tuning unit that sits on the back of the guitar — a mighty enhancement to an already great instrument. No need for screws, wiring or routing, in fact the system is hardly visible from the front of the guitar. You can still adjust the tuning pegs manually or turn on the Min-ETune to choose from 12 popular tunings or program six of your own.

Includes black hardshell case.

  • Everything I Expected and More

    As reviewed by Kenneth Johnson on 1/5/2014

    Let me start by saying that I have been playing a custom shop double cut Les Paul for years and was looking for something more versatile, something with more options in tone. Don't get me wrong, I love my other LP, but with the many different styles of music I play it was time to find something with more options. I thought long about buying a fender strat and even borrowed one to play for awhile but just did not feel comfortable playing it as I am so used to the LP and just could not get the same gritty over the top sound from it when I wanted it. That's where the Futura really shines, I can get that warm, smooth tone out of the P-90, (not quite that signature fender tone) and still have the over the top, in your face tone with the Burstbucker. And then to be able to split the coils and boost the output just adds more tone versatility. And because it is a Les Paul it feels right at home when I play. The finish on this guitar is amazing, absolutely beautiful. I purchased the Pacific Blue and the picture on the website does not do this guitar justice. The e-tune robot tuner is pretty cool, does what it says it will do and it has such a low profile you don't even notice it from the front of the guitar. I have only had the guitar for one day, but have already put about 6 hours on it and it plays like a dream. Would like to also give a shout out to Brit and the staff at Guitar Center, Boise. Thanks for putting up with me through the whole Ibanez fiasco, don't believe the hype! You guys are MOST excellent and much appreciated, Ken

  • Great playing guitar but

    As reviewed by Ryan Powell on 4/23/2014

    I like the sidewinder p90 pickup configuration in the neck, color (Red), and min etune feature. I would like to rate this guitar higher, but the paint is already chipping, and I've already had to contact Gibson for a replacement min etune machine head on the high e string. Support was quick to act, but I find these build issues within the first month to be quite disappointing for the amount of money paid for the guitar. I expected a lot more for the money.

  • Excellence All The Way

    As reviewed by Anton Schmidtner on 4/24/2014

    Just purchased my 2014 LP Futura last week. I did a lot of research and playing before I finally narrowed down my search to this and a couple other LP models. Ultimately I picked the Futura for its feel, tone, pickups, and quality of craftsmanship. I have played a huge assortment of brands / models. Gibson has delivered an instrument that just feels and sounds like it will remain in my possession for many many years to come. The sounds are versatile as you have so many pickup / switch options, and this guitar just has an incredible warmth about it. The amount of sustain you can hear when you just pluck a string without it even plugged in is awesome. I play hard rock and classic rock primarily so this guitar seems to be built for these areas. The bullion gold finish is flawless (and as a car guy & single handicap golfer, I look for precision). The e-tune does what it should, although I was not actively looking for this feature. As far as the rest, the weight is good - the neck feels great - the switches and knobs are solid - the headstock doesn't feel any heavier with the e-tune - and everything else feels that it is of very high quality. I would qualify the 2014 Gibson Futura LP has an excellent value and the type of guitar that you can hang on to forever (and pass down to your lil rockers).
