New Gibson Les Paul 2014 Signature 120th Anniversary • CreamTone Vintage Design
CreamTone Vintage Design brings the tone, look and feel of the great vintage guitars from the 1950s and ‘60s back to modern Gibson USA Les Pauls.
We've rebuilt this Gibson Les Paul 2014 120th Anniversary Signature from the ground up with the full line of LIX Patina lightly aged parts. LIX is the Roman numeral for 59. Even though these parts are brand new, they have the look and feel of well-worn parts from that era. Each piece is handcrafted in the USA for best quality and performance.
The color is Caribbean Blue and it is breathtaking! We can honestly say that the pictures do not do this color justice. It's the perfect deep-sea teal, and the beautiful flame gives the top a depth that has to be seen in person to be truly appreciated.
If you’ve ever thought about completely outfitting a new Les Paul with CreamTone parts, but didn’t want the hassle of parting out a new guitar and being stuck with all the leftovers, this is your chance to do it the easy way.
The body came to us brand new and has never been owned or played by anyone other than the CreamTone team. It features a maple top on a solid mahogany body with traditional weight relief, and a very nice dark rosewood fingerboard. It weighs 9 pounds, 6 ounces.
Since it's not your typical burst or gold top, we went in a different direction with this one. Instead of our usual 50s-inspired aging, we decided to age it in a way that gives it the look of a guitar a few years old that's been played. People are always saying, "Play it and let it age naturally." So that's exactly what we did. We took it on stage and put it to work in front of thousands of people and let it rock the house! You'll find natural wear on the nickel, plastic and body—light tarnish, pick marks, and buckle marks on the back.
The Caribbean Blue finish is factory fresh and 100% original, as are the Plek’d frets. The rest of the guitar is pure CreamTone! Assembled in our shop using our parts especially selected to enhance the unique character of this guitar.
A new, custom white case with a peach interior and all the Gibson factory case candy is included along with a CreamTone COA. The guitar has been set up with new Ernie Ball Hybrid pure nickel strings and dialed in to play like a dream. Of course, things can settle a bit during shipping and minor adjustments may be necessary when you unpack it, so were including an extra set of strings.
This is an opportunity to own a custom-built 2014 Les Paul Signature Anniversary for the same price as the stock guitar sold for at the big-chain stores. But unlike those, this is a very special instrument you’ll be proud to take on stage night after night.
