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.

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

First off, this guitar wins my approval. I own the Pacific Blue, and get a lot of compliments on its appearance. The bridge pickup sounds great to me. It has that LP growl that I wanted. The coil tapping works well (with my rig). I play through a Vox AC30 and Egnater Tweaker 15 and it sounds good through both. I am a tele/strat player mostly. I can get an (almost) strat or tele sound by tapping the bridge pickup. It gets even better with the 15dB boost activated. I also like the tone when the selector switch is in the middle. Now for the negatives. I thought the minEtune was cool. It's great for taking to practice when you play in different tunings and have to switch back and forth. However, I do not trust the minEtune in a live setting. It picks up on other sounds and will put you out of tune. It tunes fast when you're tuning at home, but not on stage. It's better to tune it manually in that setting. I am planning on removing the minEtune and installing regular tuners. Also, the P-90H doesn't sound very good to me. It sounds too muddy. It's a little better tapped, but I am considering replacing it with a regular P90. Lastly, I wasn't overly impressed with the craftsmanship. I own a Fender American Deluxe Tele, and it is crafted to a higher standard. Those are my only cons at this time. Overall, I love this guitar.

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

      I have 2 other LPs and play frequently. I wanted to try this guitar to check out the auto tuner function and to see if I liked the stock P-90. I was surprised how heavy it was compared to my other LPs and really surprised how dead the tone was. I tried hard to like this guitar and I never got around to testing the robotic tuners. I also found the P-90 to be surprisingly weak and lacking good tone, while the coil tapping didn't have the same effect as it does on my other guitars with Seymour Duncans.
      I don't know if it's the maple neck, but there's something wrong with this guitar. Anyway, thanks to MF and their return policy, I was able to get a full refund.

      Excellent guitar!!! Superb electronics. The E-tune system is CRAZY good. I was shipped the wrong color from what I ordered but Musician's Friend got me the right color (Inverness Green(beautiful))within 3 days and before it's live debut. The Pop Pods provide a unique mix of everything you are looking for in a live sound. I actually bought a Purple one too that should ship next week!!! A+++++++++
