2014 Gibson Les Paul Standard

Online votes from readers of the MusicRadar.com website have now been counted. They were asked: what’s the most desirable electric guitar in the world today? The answer?

The 2014 Gibson Les Paul Standard.

The editors at MusicRadar concur, saying, “This year’s model features a host of changes to the long-established Gibson formula, including an asymmetrical neck profile, a pair of BurstBucker Pro pickups, push-pull pots to access tuned coil-taps, phase and bypass options, and, of course, a Min-ETune fitted at the headstock.

“Blending the old and the new has obviously had the desired effect, with players voting in their droves to make the USA 2014 Les Paul Standard the most desirable high-end guitar in the world today.”
