    Comments about Gibson 2014 Les Paul Studio Pro Electric Guitar:

    Great guitar, only complaint is bridge vol. has noise when coil is tapped and you turn up while a note is sounding. Great finish, great pickups, light weight, nice case, and the neck feels really good.

    Comments about Gibson 2014 Les Paul Studio Pro Electric Guitar:

    Overall a very nice product. The only con is the Gibson Quick Connect system for the pickups. It makes it very hard to change out to a pickup you prefer without cutting the cable/connector off the existing one. Not a big deal unless you ever want to put it back to the original setup. I found the connectors/pigtail online (Gibson does not sell them) and made my own but it was not an easy task.

      Comments about Gibson 2014 Les Paul Studio Pro Electric Guitar:

      Before this guitar I just had an Epiphone Les Paul Standard, which is a pretty good guitar. But this one... Man, is it amazing! Even its finish smell gets me excited to play. The coil taps are a great addition to it, allowing you to get very nice tones, although it isn't Fender single coil tone. Using them as humbuckers, you will find this pair of pickups very hot! I play a wide range of styles, and this guitar delivers great cleans and distorted sounds. I really am in love with this guitar and think I'll be like this for a while!

          The strings are average at best, and the factory set up didn't hold up. After minor tweeking, the guitar, is everything I expected and more..... Thanks GIBSON !

          Comments about Gibson 2014 Les Paul Studio Pro Electric Guitar:

          When the 2014 Gibson Les Paul Studio Pro in Fireburst was discontinued in October, I knew I had to move fast. I found a Level 2 used axe on eBay that very day from a reputable dealer and I bought it. It is very pretty, the guitar of my dreams. The AA maple top is as described and the candy finish glitters just slightly. Everyone knows that Gibson still has issues with finish quality and my Fireburst is no exception. Some of the clear lacquer around the neck is a little bubbly but I can ignore that.

          Now that I have set it up the way I prefer, here are my observations: This is not my first Gibson Les Paul, and the weight relieved body tends to muffle the highs, compared to a slab body Les Paul Junior Special that I own. This is MOST noticeable to me. The coil splitting is Ok, but to me it is a gimmick, not necessary for my playing style but it gives a couple of tonal variances if you want them. I have been experimenting with the push pull knobs and I admit there are possibilities.

          There is no self-tuning stuff on this model (mini tune; G force tuners) and I am very glad of that.

          Playing wired through a Joyo vintage overdrive and a Phase 90, into a Vox 15 watt tuber, I love the sounds this axe makes. It is definitely a keeper. My overdrive stomp box kicks the high frequencies to where I can wail like Billy Gib, which isn't easy for me.

          My advice is: "Get one while you can." Some of the finishes are still available new, but don't wait too long.

              I really like the pickups and with the coil taps they provide a wide range of tones. Really sound good with my Fender Blues Jr amp. Good setup out of the box. No defects. Excellent customer support from Musicians Friend.

                Comments about Gibson 2014 Les Paul Studio Pro Electric Guitar:

                the standard 10 gauge strings that came installed on this guitar did not sound right as a previous review said it sounded flat. I installed a set of ernie ball super slinky .09 gauge strings and what a difference. to me anyway. the grover tuners seem to be of substantial quality. I would have prefered a pro burstbucker in the neck but the 57 classic will do. the coil slit sounds like a Gibson les paul with coil split. no fender sounds here. I changed the big ugly knobs out with a set of standard Gibson speed knobs. looks better. the new larger strap pins are a plus. its about time Gibson did that upgrade. the case is good except for the lid strap. it is more flimsy than the ones on their other cases it doesn't fold neatly inside when the lid is closed. all things considered including the price. I think it is a pretty decent axe.
