No Longer Available Gibson Les Paul Standard Premium Quilt Root Beer, 2014


Instrument Categories: , , ,

For 2014, the Gibson Les Paul Standard Premium Quilt Top carried hand-selected, AAA-grade and bookmatched quilted Maple tops. These spectacular guitars, being part of the 120th Anniversary lines, also carry the engraved Mother of Pearl 12th fret inlay.

Woods used are the classic Les Paul combination – the bookmatched AAA Maple top, Mahogany for the back and long-tenon neck, and Indian Rosewood for the compound radius fingerboard. The body uses the ‘modern’ weight relief system, bringing the total down to under 8 pounds. The Gibson logo on the headstock is Mother of Pearl. The nitrocellulose lacquer finish is a ‘Root Beer’ tone nicely setting off the Quilt figuring and is in very good, clean condition.

For hardware, the head carries a set of locking Grover Roto-Matic tuners with metal tulip buttons. The pickups are a BurstBucker Pro set, and all four controls are push-pull offering many tonal options including split or humbucker and phase reversal, and a bypass leading the bridge pickup directly to the output jack.

Another detail that’s quite unusual for a stock Les Paul is the lack of binding ‘nubs’ at the fret ends. Normally, Gibson’s process is to install the frets, then bind the fingerboard, covering the fret ends with binding. Here, the binding was installed first, then the fingerboard was fretted; this makes for a full-width fret space.

This example is in excellent condition, with vanishingly light wear. It has had a pickguard mounted, and removed; the case includes two pickguards – one white, one crème. A Quick Connect kit is also included.

The original brown hard shell ‘Gibson USA’ case is included.
