Gibson Unveils Les Paul Reference Monitors

The monitors will be available in three different sizes and multiple color variations.

Nashville, TN (January 20, 2015) -- Gibson Brands, Inc. continues to honor the roots of Les Paul, who first pioneered the solid body electric guitar and later introduced multitrack recording with the release of the Gibson Les Paul Reference Monitors, which carry on his name as synonym for creativity and passion for music. Find the Les Paul Monitors at the 2015 NAMM Show (Gibson Meeting Room 300B, Level 3).

Take a look at the sound engineer, the producer, the musician or the fan who loves a great listening experience. All of them share one dream: to have the one reliable reference monitor that they can trust and enjoy both in the studio and at home.

With high expertise in musical instruments, speaker systems and recording, Gibson Brands created a line of monitors that satisfies the needs of true audio professionals and music enthusiasts alike. These monitors represent a new level of performance and were made to become the personal reference, whether mixing or recording, producing, being an artist, or simply listen to your music at home.

The monitors represent superior definition with the iconic Les Paul styling, utilizing superior material, including diamond-like carbon coated titanium tweeters, non-woven carbon woofers and custom-made amplification to ensure ultra clean transient impulse response and large headroom. The Les Paul Reference Monitors will be available in three different sizes and multiple color variations, such as cherry, tobacco sunburst and cherry sunburst. Enjoy!

The monitors will be available by February 2015 at a U.S. MAP of $599 (LP4), $799 (LP6) and $999 (LP8).

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
