Gibson Introduces 'The Ultimate Les Paul'


Gibson says that, more than six decades into the evolution of the solidbody electric guitar, their new LPX unlocks your full potential as an artist by removing the boundaries between you and your instrument. Here's what they tell us,

"Effects, pedals, AC adapters, batteries, direct boxes, amps, tuners, patch cords--they're a major hassle, but a necessary part of your sound. Or are they? With the supremely playable and beautifully crafted LPX, your sound lives in your guitar. Plug into an amp, a front of house mixer, or an audio interface: your sound goes there with you. 55 expertly designed presets, using the LPX's dazzling array of world-class, built-in processors, take your tone from searing leads, to tender ballads, to the sound of various iconic guitars, to rocking rhythms, to much more--quickly and easily.
But don't stop there: Create your own signature sounds that shape the LPX to your musical desires. What's more, footswitch and expression pedal controllers communicate wirelessly with the LPX to minimize stage clutter, while robot tuning keeps your guitar perfectly in tune. And that's just for starters. There are plenty of guitars for the timid. For the bold, there's LPX."
