    The innovation at the heart of the Les Paul with the added bonus of always being in tune.

    The 2013 Les Paul Future Tribute captures the look, feel, and tone of the guitar world’s most legendary single-cutaway solidbody, and equips it for the player of the future—making it available today. Primed for optimum playability and versatility, the Les Paul Future Tribute carries a pair of “zebra-coil” ’57 Classic humbucking pickups for a blend of vintage warmth and contemporary articulation, along with a superbly comfortable custom asymmetrical neck profile. Gibson’s acclaimed bridge and tailpiece team up with futuristic Steinberger gearless tuners to ensure smooth playability and precise tuning and intonation. And this Les Paul Future Tribute comes upgraded with Min-ETune automated “Robot” tuners for a nominal upcharge.

    The Les Paul Future Tribute takes the classic platform of the original Les Paul Standards forward into the 21st century by starting with the timeless tonewood combination of a mahogany body with solid carved maple top. When paired, these woods offer a tonal depth and complexity unmatched by any single-wood construction, with warmth and richness from the mahogany, and superb clarity and “snap” from the maple, all of which translates to surprising breadth and articulation within the guitar’s amplified voice. The mahogany back is strategically weight relieved using modern weight relief methods to both lighten your load and improve resonance.

    A solid mahogany neck is glued into the body in Gibson’s time-tested tradition, and carved to an ergonomic and superbly comfortable new asymmetrical profile that fits the natural shape of the human hand, with depths of .800” at the 1st fret and .875” at the 12th, making this one of the most playable Les Pauls yet created. It is topped with a genuine rosewood fingerboard that carries 22 medium-jumbo frets and traditional trapezoid inlays. In keeping with the stripped-down ethos of this powerful performer, both body and ’board remain unbound, and there’s no pickguard to obscure the finish. A PLEK-cut nut made from black Corian subtly complements the knurled chrome knobs and black pickup rings, while enhancing resonance and sustain. The headstock is silkscreened with a gold Gibson logo and Les Paul Model.

    The Les Paul Future Tribute ensures its sonic versatility and hot looks with a pair of zebra-coil ’57 Classic humbucking pickups, consisting of a standard-wound humbucker in the neck position and a slightly over-wound ’57 Classic Plus for hotter lead tones in the bridge position. The ’57 Classics begin in the image of Gibson’s esteemed PAF humbuckers, with genuine Alnico 2 magnets and 42-AWG enamel-coated wire, but are enhanced with evenly matched coils for a smooth, singing tone, and wax potting to combat microphonic squeal at high volume levels. The result is a pickup that is thick, rich, and warm, yet clear and articulate—perfect for the broad demands of today’s music. The traditional wiring complement of an independent volume and tone control per pickup plus a three-way toggle selector switch allows a broad range of sonic variations.

    To anchor it all down, Gibson USA loads in a classic Tune-o-Matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, then rams it all into the future with a set of super-efficient Steinberger™ gearless tuners, a hardware set that partners up for solid sustain and precision tuning. Put it all together, and the Les Paul Future Tribute presents the perfect way to celebrate the Les Paul in the 21st century, wrapping it all into a great guitar that brings the look, feel, and sound of a classic Les Paul to the hands of the demanding players of today.

    Each guitar includes a black Gibson gig bag, owner’s manual and truss rod wrench.

    Min-ETune automated “robot” tuners
    Min-ETune is a small compact battery powered tuning unit that sits on the back of the guitar — a mighty enhancement to an already great instrument. No need for screws, wiring or routing, in fact the system is hardly visible from the front of the guitar. You can still adjust the tuning pegs manually or turn on the Min-ETune to choose from 12 popular tunings or program 6 of your own.

    Always In Tune
    A guitar with Min-ETune looks the same, feels the same, plays the same and rocks the same - it’s just always in tune. Adjust to other instruments' imperfect tuning with Reference Tuning and keep that harmony going. Perfect for home, studio and gigging: The internal lithium battery lasts for 80 to 100 tunings on just one charge. Rock longer with the fast and accurate Min-ETune, tuning your guitar in just 3 seconds and 1 strum.

    In Perfect Harmony
    Digital tuners that emulate open tunings are available BUT because the Min-ETune physically turns the tuners, the system is always organic and natural. There’s no delay, no dampening and no dead sound — just the natural vibration of guitar strings in total harmony with the vibrations coming out of the amp producing ringing harmonics and powerful sustain.

    Rock Out
    With the new Min-ETune equipped guitars all you have to do is PUSH the button, STRUM, get TUNED and ROCK out. Min-ETune is a huge boost to the live performer, the touring professional, the experienced enthusiast, the beginner and novice player alike.

    Save time and money in the studio because the tuning system is so fast and accurate. And Min-ETune is a priceless tool for writing creatively with its instant access to the sounds your muse demands. Perfect for the professional – Min-ETune will have you rocking around the clock.

    Travel light to your next gig or across the globe, just one guitar does the work of multiple guitars in different tunings – perfect for the enthusiast. Keep on rocking and experiment with a wide range of alternate tunings or program your own and save it forever with Min-ETune.

    Spend less time learning to tune and more time learning to play the guitar. Perfect for the beginner – Min-ETune puts a variety of tunings at your fingertips. You are ready to rock? With Min-ETune you can even experiment with open tunings, something that usually takes years of practice.

    More than just efficient, affordable, versatile, and powerful, Min-ETune is truly a creative tool that you can’t do without.

      Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Future Tribute Min-ETune Electric Guitar:

      I have had mine for two months It is magic. Fantastic set up out of box. Amazing product tunes in seconds and the pickups make this thing sound vintage. Save some money and rock on, my friend. I bought a hardshell case cause it isn't included in the price. Time to go practice now.

        Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Future Tribute Min-ETune Electric Guitar:

        quite different from my more 'traditional' les paul. the tuning knobs are pretty useless. i don/t use drop tuning, but it/s good they provide for it. volume and tuning are metal knobs. the left hand *feels* like an 'l p' - the right, not so much. as a second 'l p', this is a neat machine. not too expensive. color is nice (wine red). this looks to be my primary in concert l.p.
