Gibson Brands, Inc. continues to honor the roots of Les Paul, who first pioneered the solid-body electric guitar and multi-track recording, with the release of the Gibson Les Paul Reference Monitors, which carry on his name as a synonym for creativity and passion for music. Take a look at the sound engineer, the producer, the musician, or the fan who loves a great listening experience. All of them share one dream: to have a reliable reference speaker that they trust and enjoy in the studio or at home.
With high expertise in musical instruments, speaker systems and recording, Gibson Brands created a line of monitors that satisfy the needs of true audio professionals and music enthusiasts alike. These monitors represent a new level of performance, allowing to make easy mixing decisions and were made to become the personal reference whether you are recording, mixing, producing or simply listening to your music.
The monitors combine superior definition with the iconic Les Paul styling and utilize exceptional materials including diamond-like carbon-coated titanium tweeters, non-woven carbon woofers, and custom-made amplification to ensure ultra-clean transient impulse response and large headroom. The Les Paul Reference Monitors are available in three different sizes and multiple color variations such as cherry, cherry burst and tobacco burst.
The Gibson Les Paul 8 Reference Monitor is a two-way, bi-amped, full-range reference speaker. It employs an 8" lightweight non-woven carbon woofer and a 1" high-frequency titanium w/DLC coating tweeter, both powered by a custom amplifier. Whether you are mixing or recording, producing, playback, or simply listen to your music at home, this monitor integrates nicely into any environment, while representing a new level of performance.
The Les Paul 8 defines a new level of performance in 8" monitors of any class and is the top of the Gibson Les Paul monitors, made to fill even the largest room with solid body of sound.

Comments about Gibson Les Paul 8 Studio Monitor (LP8):
Gibson has a whole line of iconic guitars dedicated to the multi-track and guitar pioneer Les Paul (who's innovation gave rise to the very sound of rock 'n' roll). Now, they've unveiled their new series of Les Paul products, but they have morphed the beauty into the form of pro reference monitors.
These stunning speakers will make any room or studio pop. Whether you're a music aficionado that needs to hear your tunes in hi-def, or if you're a professional in the music biz with top-notch style and taste, these monitors rock.
What I love about 'em:
1. They're unique (visually and technology-wise) speakers with the lovely Les Paul styling combine superior speaker technology with Iconic Les Paul Styling with carved, flame maple high-gloss arched top
2. Diamond-like, carbon based drivers and custom amplification ensures exceptionally low- and hi-end frequency extension, clean mid-range and great transient response
3. Reveals unheard details in any track to allow for mastering and smooth creation of well translating mixes.
4. Defines a new level of performance regards stereo imaging and depth of the soundstage.
5. Allows for easy positioning of instruments, fast mixing decisions and non-fatigue listening for any application.
