The Les Paul Futura 2014 begins with a foundation of traditional tonewoods, then kicks it up a notch with the pairing of an overwound-PAF-style BurstBucker 3 humbucker in the bridge position and Gibson's P-90H Sidewinder humbucker in the neck, with both enhanced by push/pull coil-split switching and an onboard 15 dB boost. Add the astounding Min-ETune automated tuning system and a whole raft of 120th Anniversary features, and the result is a stunning performance package.
Innovative 120th Anniversary additions for Gibson's 2014 Model Year include larger no-slip strap buttons, black Max Grip Speed Knobs, a black GraphTech nut, long-life proprietary coated guitar strings, cryogenic treated fret wire for longer life and corrosion resistance, a full PLEK setup, and a 120th Anniversary logo inlay at the 12th fret.
Body and Neck Crafted in the image of the original Les Paul Standard, the Les Paul Futura 2014 is made from a solid mahogany back with modern weight relief for enhanced resonance and a lighter strapped-on feel, with a carved plain maple top (figured AA maple on the Brilliant Red and Pacific Blue models). Its glued-in maple neck sports a '60s Slim Taper profile, and a rosewood fingerboard incorporates 22 cryogenic treated frets for long life, plus traditional trapezoid inlays and a commemorative 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret.
Pickups and Electronics The guitar carries a unique pairing of a "hot-vintage" style BurstBucker 3 in the bridge position and a P-90H Sidewinder humbucker in the neck position. They're wired through the traditional complement of independent volume and tone controls and a three-way selector switch, but updated with coil-split switching and launched into the stratosphere with Gibson's onboard 15 dB boost.
Hardware The Les Paul Futura 2014 is an unprecedented live performance machine thanks to its factory-installed Min-ETune tuning system, which automatically retunes your guitar on demand in seconds, or calls up any one of 12 factory or 6 user presets at a simple strum of the strings. A chrome Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece lock the strings down for optimum sustain, while enlarged strap buttons keep your guitar secure throughout the set. Black Max Grip speed knobs provide optimum on-the-fly control manipulation.
