OVERVIEW

Burnin' Burstbucker Pro pickups with a sleek neck and classic headstock.

With the PowerTune System, this Les Paul 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.

The PowerTune System 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.

The Gibson Les Paul Standard '60s Neck Electric Guitar, famous for its sustain, takes a new turn with the amazing PowerTune system. The feel and sound of the original '60s LP comes from a slim '60s neck design with a smaller peghead, push-in-bushing green tuning keys, and nickel hardware. BurstBucker Pro pickups feature Alnico V magnets like those used in the P-90s 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. Includes Gibson hardshell case.

First review anywhere??

By just call me Mr Tibbs

from Kentucky

The guitar needs no introduction, same great LP standard as always. I guess this review is all about the powertune feature. To sum up, it works perfectly. It has quite a few features besides the basic tuning procedure and the alternate tunings are great for slide players etc. It tunes up in just a few seconds as advertised and the tuning accuracy can be adjusted to allow greater speed in tuning or greater accuracy at the expense of a little more tuning time. Recommended!
