Gibson

A mahogany body with dual humbuckers and coil-tapping at an affordable price.

The LPJ offers all the ingredients that made the most desirable Les Paul Standards legendary—classic tonewoods, innovative hardware, two genuine humbucking pickups, and of course Gibson’s acclaimed build quality and playability—all wrapped up in a stripped-down, no-nonsense package that makes this guitar a flat-out performer. The LPJ Pro ups the ante with coil-tapping and 490R-NECK and 490T-Bridge pickups.

LPJ Pro has a mahogany body. A neck made from hard-wearing maple is glued into the body, and carved to Gibson's popular rounded '50s profile that measures .818” at the 1st fret and .963” at the 12th. It is topped with a genuine rosewood fingerboard that carries 22 medium-jumbo frets and traditional trapezoid inlays. There’s no pickguard or fingerboard binding to clutter the straight-on, stripped-down look of the LPJ, while quality touches continue with a PLEK-cut nut made from black Corian to subtly echo the black speed knobs and black pickup rings and covers. The traditional back-angled headstock is silkscreened with a gold Gibson logo that stands out clear and proud.

A pair of Gibson’s 490R-NECK and 490T-Bridge pickups with coil-tapping fire up the LPJ Pro through your amp of choice. An independent volume and tone control with push/pull coil-tapping per pickup, plus a three-way toggle selector switch allows a broad range of sonic variations, while Gibson USA’s legendary tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece ensure solid sustain and outstanding intonation. A set of vintage-style tuners provides an impressive 16:1 gear ratio for precise and efficient tuning. Put it all together, and the LPJ Pro is the fastest road to a genuine Les Paul, sparing none of the tone, while putting the legend in your hands with far less load on your wallet.

Each guitar includes a black Gibson gig bag, owner’s manual, and truss rod wrench.

    Comments about Gibson LPJ Pro Electric Guitar:

    I owned many Guitars, My first was a Harmony, it was really good. Then I owned American Stratocaster. I played it until the paint came off. I gave it away. That type of quality is not made anymore. I owned a Teli . that I bought because is was a custom one piece that was like a light weight Gibson it had tapping coils. Not made in America of Japan anymore. Then I wned aan Epiphone custom that cost as much as the Gibson they have in the lower rang. Then I bought my first Gibson Les Paul 2012 worn brown , glossed shine awesome capping that made it look as if it has a strip. model. They do not make this modal but it was suppose to be a less model but it sounds and feel better than my standard Burst. It seem the stripped down modals are the best. They are light weight, and comfortable. The melody maker of this year is the best especial the one with the 1960s's model.

    Comments about Gibson LPJ Pro Electric Guitar:

    I've owned many guitars but Gibson.During a sale I figured why not. I didn't have huge expectations and this being the entry level model I was realistic. Lower grade, multi-pieced body,no frills...no bling, thin finish.
    So she arrives and it's inspection time---OH NO!!!!!!!!!
    I'm embarassed for Gibson, MADE IN USA? I have epiphones,squiers and agile's that have better craftsmanship.
    The bad-
    Loose tuners....tightened and buzzing gone.
    Truss rod cover screws weren't tightened all the way........fixed
    No set up at all, 7mm action.....if you don't know how to set up a guitar including truss rod adjustment this will cost you $$$
    NO neck pickup alone....swicth had bent contacts(roughly installed) so only had bridge or bridge/neck BUT no neck alone.
    Rough neck sanding along the fretboard edge....very bad
    Upper body curve contour edge(near switch) was not sanded/shaped properly....... still deciding on this one.Might want to show gibson.
    Both back covers,switch and pot covers were installed crooked....would've taken an extra 5 seconds to do it right.

    The good-
    AN AMAZING GIGBAG...pretty sad that this is the one thing that impressed me the most.
    Great pickups
    Frets not buzzing
    Nice burst finish.

    Conclusion....still not sure if I'm keeping it. VERY dissapointed, I should not be the one to complete the guitar.
    I hope that the skilled workers who build the $2K les paul standards are not the workers who build these entry level models.It's as if they were not given enough time to build a decent guitar.An extra 20 minutes of attention and care and this thing would have rocked. Went to my local store to try another LPJ,was pretty bad too,and very sharp frets.
    Marketing 101:
    I once bought a Squier Classic Vibe,was soo well made that I went ahead and bought a more expensive Fender.

    So now I bought a Gibson LPJ,was so badly made that you think I'll be buying a more expensive Gibson????????

    Comments about Gibson LPJ Pro Electric Guitar:

    A super guitar for a reasonable price. Very Fast action with superb tone. It will not match up with my old Les Paul Custom .. but will not miss it by much. The setup was perfect. I have never seen a guitar in this price range that sounded and played better than this one. The coil splitting feature gives it a wider tone range than most gibsons =) no bells and whistles.. Just all the things necessary to make a great sounding/playing guitar... I am VERY pleased with it
