The Gibson Les Paul Standard '50s Neck Electric Guitar gives you the feel and sound of the original '50s LP with the self tuning ability of the amazing PowerTune system. This Gibson guitar sports a classic, hefty neck design with the smaller peghead, push-in-bushing green tuning keys, and nickel hardwareof the '50s Les Paul. BurstBucker V pickups feature Alnico V magnets like those used in the P90s from the '50s. One coil has more wraps than the other, as did most '50s and early '60s "Patent Applied For"s. These waxed, double-potted pickups deliver a tighter, balanced, biting tone with more midrange. Mahogany body and neck with maple top and rosewood fretboard. Gibson includes a hardshell case with your Les Paul Standard '50s Neck Electric Guitar.
With the PowerTune System„¢, Gibson brings a real innovation to the marketplace that promises to banish, once and for all, the tuning problems guitarists and bass players often have. The system consists of 3 components that can automatically tune all strings according to prescribed settings in less than 5 seconds. Major modification of the instrument is no longer required. A control knob that enables the tuning to be programmed replaces the volume control. The player can choose from normal tuning patterns right up to the most diverse range of open tunings. The programmed instructions are implemented by tuners equipped with tiny electric motors. As the motorized tuners adjust the tuning, the pitch of the string is monitored by means of the tune-control bridge. Electrical power for the tuning mechanism is supplied via the guitar strings.
Gibson is proud to announce that it has reached an agreement with Tronical Gmbh of Hamburg, Germany for the exclusive worldwide sale and distribution of Tronical's revolutionary PowerTune System„¢. in both new guitars and upgrade kits.
With Tronical's PowerTune System, a guitar can tune itself precisely and automatically within seconds. It stores personal tuning preferences and makes them available for easy implementation at the push of a button.
