Comments about Gibson 2014 Les Paul Futura Plain Top Electric Guitar:

I purchased my gold bullion colored Les Paul Futura at the Guitar Center in Peoria, Il. In fact I traded my MIM 60th Deluxe anniversary strat for this guitar with no regrets. My used Futura had the mini-E tuner system removed and deluxe tuners were installed. This is the best and only modification I would recommend for anyone considering a Les Paul Futura. A bit of string buzz, no binding, but the tone and tonal possibilities are incredible. My Les Paul Custom (1998) could not recreate the tone of the Futura. In fact it is only a matter of time until I purchase another. Just play on if you can...it sells itself. Rock on!

Excellence All The Way

By Anton Schmidtner

from NJ

Comments about Gibson 2014 Les Paul Futura Plain Top Electric Guitar:

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).

Great playing guitar but

By Ryan Powell

from West Middlesex, PA

Comments about Gibson 2014 Les Paul Futura Plain Top Electric Guitar:

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.

Great playing guitar but

By Ryan Powell

from Pa

Comments about Gibson 2014 Les Paul Futura Plain Top Electric Guitar:

This guitar plays great, pickup selection is great, and the min etune is also a nice feature. I had previously owned a custom silverburst lp in the past, and this thing blows that guitar out of the water in versatility. I gave this guitar 3 stars because the non coated paint appears to chip away easily and I had to replace a tuning motor on the high e string after the first string change. Gibson is sending me a replacement motor, but I found this to be unacceptable only after a month of use. I would like to rate this guitar higher, but I can't because of those issues, which really detract from the value for such a mid range priced premium guitar. The paint is very nice, but who knows how long it will have paint. Slightly disappointed...

color?

By Alan Barski

from Crest hill, iL

Comments about Gibson 2014 Les Paul Futura Plain Top Electric Guitar:

I am super pleased with this guitar, it plays like a dream. the Min-Etune is so cool and fun to experiment with different tunings. the only negative comment i have is that the pacific blue color is not represented corectly, the actual color is a lot lighter and brighter more like a turquoise so when i first opened the case i was a little disappointed.

Everything I Expected and More

By Kenneth Johnson

from Boise Idaho

Comments about Gibson 2014 Les Paul Futura Plain Top Electric Guitar:

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
