Like many who have commented on the Gibson 2014 LPJ range, I have been more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the guitar supplied by Guitar Center (Fireburst) - and the deal was made all the more sweet by the "Closeout" pricing (it almost balanced the shipping costs to Australia). Speaking for the guitar delivered - intended to be an everyday player for a musician in his forties (in bands since the age of 15) and a quality instrument that the children can learn on - I would recommend these guitars to anybody with an interest in playing any style music on electric guitar. The "stripped down" build of this range is entirely without compromise to sound quality - and also, in my opinion, in respect of finish when it comes to the Fireburst and Vintage Sunburst options. Aesthetically - and admittedly, sight-unseen - I found the Fireburst and Vintage Sunburst finishes to be most appealing and in real-life, the Fireburst is stunning. Of course, there is no binding, the Satin finish is matte and the guitar is supplied with a Gig Bag only, but these are really inconsequential (the guitar looks and sounds great regardless and any gigging musician would need to invest in a proper road case [the Gibson hard cases, while gorgeous, are really candy that would quickly become worn in the rough and tumble of daily/weekly gigs]). From all angles (both literal and metaphorical), the guitar does a sterling job - truly worthy of the Gibson tradition (take it as read that this comment refers to all aspects of the guitar including: pickups; frets; inlays; finish; sound; strings and versatility). Even after being shipped from the US to Australia, this guitar arrived only needing the most rudimentary of tuning to be totally playable. If you're genuine and you buy a Gibson LPJ14, you'll be pleased. In closing, too, I highly recommend Guitar Center's staff (both online and in-store) that I've had the opportunity to work with - in particular, Sharon Baker (online) - they've consistently worked to make deals happen.
Good day all ... I already have an LP Traditional & was looking to get a 2nd/back-up guitar without having to break the bank. I did some extensive research on guitars on the $600-$800 price range. I narrowed it down to the PRS SE , the high-end Mexican Strat/Tele Blacktop series (with the double humbucker bridge pick-up), the Gibson Melody Maker & of course , ths LPJ. I chose this one. As the first gentleman to review this guitar said , it is already intonated right out of the box or off the wall at the GC store. It comes with a set of Clear-Tone strings that are properly locked on the tuning posts. I played it for hours & it stayed in tune. The fretboard did not play as smooth as my tradional , but I did not expect it to. The overall playability is very good. The humbuckers sound really nice in all settings & has that full Gibson sound you come to depend on.This guitar comes with a decent gig bag , but for another $110 you can get a hardshell Roadrunner case that it will fit into perfectly. All-in-all , it's a Gibson ... and they did not scrimp on craftsmanship. Best guitar in this price range ... you'll be happy with it.
Good day all ... i already own an LP Traditional & was looking for a back-up stage guitar without having to break the bank. I did extensive research on guitars in the $600-$800 range & here's what I thought were the best guitars in this price range : the PRS SE , the high-end Mexican Blacktop series Strats & Teles (with the double humbucker bridge pick-up) , the Gibson Melody Maker & , of course , this Gibson LPJ. As the first gentleman to write a review on this guitar said , the guitar is perfectly intonated , either out of the box , or directly of the wall at your GC store. It comes with Clear-Tone strings that are properly "locked" around the tuning post & Kluson tuners. I banged on it for hours & it stayed in tune. The humbuckers sound great & give you that rich , full Gibson sound we have all come to depend on. The neck does not play as smooth as my Traditional , but I did not expect it to. It comes with a gig bag , but you are better off getting a Roadrunner hard-shell case , that this guitar will fit in snuggly , for about $110. In the end , it is a Gibson & they did not scrimp on craftmanship on this guitar ... you will be very happy with this guitar. Lastly , off the subject ,I'm bringing this up to help those who have had problems with any guitar staying in tune , or if you've ever heard that "pinging" sound when tuning your guitar. First , you need to learn how to "lock" your strings to the tuning post. You can find videos of this on YouTube. Then , for the "pinging" sound , simply take a sharpened pencil & put lead/graphite in the grooves of the nut ... "ping" will be gone. I feel compelled to share this , as I was one of the knuckleheads that couldn't get my guitar to stay in tune. Hope this helps ... rock on !!
This guitar is amazing! Don't be fooled by the price. This is still a great Gibson guitar with the quality you would expect in a $2000 LP. Feels great and sounds even better with those '61 zebras. Good classic crunch. For a long time I have shied away from Gibson's J series, making the same mistake as others writing it off as a bunch of low end junior models. NOT THE CASE!!! The only thing you wont get is all the extra bling, i.e. binding, lacquer finish, pickgaurd, pretty hardware. I was in search of a particular SG when I picked this guitar up for some unknown reason at GC and played it, I immediately fell in love with this guitar. The body resonates very well and the sound is so clear even with distortion. I would highly recommend this guitar at least go to GC and play on one then you'll see/hear/feel what I'm talking about.
I purchased this guitar and received it about a week ago. Right out of the box I did a simple tuning and strummed a chord...holy cow I thought because the guitar was intonated (out of the box) and it sounded so amazing. Haven't been able to put it down since. Normally on other guitars I never play the neck pickup because they don't sound as good but with Gibson and these new 61' Zebra Humbuckers, I play the neck pickup nearly all the time. Its hard to describe how good this guitar sounds, even at low volume. It has such amazing range of tones. Where I used to rely on my Line 6 Spider IV 150 Watt amp to enhance the sounds, now I see what a Gibson can do to enrich the sound. Also, the quality of the body and finish is stunning. Gibson uses high quality materials and they did not cheap out on the LPJ either. Grab you one of these, you will not be sorry!
