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:
I must admit, I was on the fence when I bought this. I liked the P90, But wasn't sure about the
robot tuning, Or the chambering. 10 minutes after I received it, I knew I made the right choice!
First, This guitar is not light like a LP studio. It feels closer to my LP Standard. This is one reason I'm sure that it has the incredible sustain that it does. Set up was near perfect, Only had to adjust action to suit my taste. No fret buzz, And intonation was spot on.
I could go on and on about this guitar but I would be late for work so I'll make it short.
Tone is incredible. with just the bridge pickup on, It sounds like my standard, Maybe better.
The P90 is awesome for clean tones and for Old school distorted leads as well. The 15d boost adds "Punch" not much distortion, Witch is great!
The coil splitting adds much needed tone variations, Combine all these and you have one
sweet Les Paul. If your undecided, Go for it!
Oh yea, the robo tuning works well and grows on you! It's fun!
