Great Gibson electric guitars have long been a means of fighting the establishment, so when the powers that be confiscated stocks of tonewoods from the Gibson factory in Nashvilleonly to return them once there was a resolution and the investigation endedit was an event worth celebrating. Introducing the Government Series II Les Paul, a striking new guitar from Gibson USA for 2014 that suitably marks this infamous time in Gibsons history.

Cool idea, but I still want mine in cherry sunburst. And don’t chamber the body either; I’m a purist and I firmly believe that a Les Paul should make your back hurt. :)
And before anyone throws terms like “curmudgeon” and “old fart” my way, I’ll cop to the former but not the latter as I’m under 50.
If it made a difference (and I know it doesn’t), I’d love to see some blogger keep track of how many lefty musicians will use it.
Stick it to The Man.

Does it come with a 30 pick magazine?
couldn’t get much better!
I went to the site, and saw the same picture. I’d like to see where the emblem goes on the guitar. It’s not visible in the pic.
Howdy Zirc! How ya been?
That guitar is racist.
I bought this guitar last year. I love the action on it and how it plays.
I don’t know if the picture doesn’t come out well on this one, or if they lightened the color for this year’s version. Mine is a much darker gun metal gray.
“or if they lightened the color for this years version.”
I thought this was a brand new model? I’m a Strat/Tele/Shobud guy, and I don’t know much about Gibson. Had an original ‘58 V stolen from me in 1972 though!
I bought mine in February, 2013. This appears to be round two of the version created last year.
Been good. You?
Yes, it's ugly, but it's a perfectly normal government color, and that's the point Gibson's making.
Wish I could get one but the wife won’t let me have more than one Les Paul at a time.
I am older, nothing like my 55 paul, orange strat 66, 79 custom..what a great sound..
Look like S. Duncan pickups in that pic....
I lost part of a leg back in December a little below the knee.
It was the left leg, so it's just a high hat foot .Still play'in in church.Haven't build up the endurance for four hour jobs yet though
