I purchased the 2016 version earlier this year with the black painted back hands down one of the worst guitars I ever touched, needless to say it went back. When the 2017 model came out and I noticed a black was gone I thought I would take another chance. Keep in mind the black was not the reason the guitar was so horrible to begin with it was put together very poorly the Finish was terrible the action was horrific the neck could not be leveled it was buzzing all over the first second and third frets it would fret out all over the place and all of this with fairly uncomfortable action. On the contrary when I received the 2017 model it was fabulous the Finish is beautiful of course the natural grain back of the mahogany is awesome and the playability amazing, fabulous action super fast low no buzzing no dead spots no freak outs. This Les Paul was worth every penny if I'm honest it plays better than my standards I have two standards 2007 and 2004 technically I have a mid 70 standard but I never play it lol, I also have a faded Studio and a Studio Plus flame top. I would put this one up against any of them any day it's a great guitar and it made me fall in love with Gibson all over again. I did have to make one change however I had to add the poker chip switch marker as they don't come with it for some reason and I guess I'm a little old school lol. I have been playing for over 35 years and I would highly recommend this Les Paul to anyone and everyone you won't be disappointed.

Ordered a Lp tribute 2017 and got it on time. I wasn't impressed at all by the set up, intonation, or general playability. I have a few epiphone LP's and ran my favorite through an a/b y switch with the tribute and didn't hear the results I would have liked. In face, the Epi outperformed the Gibson. In a nutshell, this isn't the LP I thought it was and I think you can get a better/more affordable LP by modding an Epiphone, as long as you can live without the Gibson name.

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Tribute T 2017 Electric Guitar:

For a long time I was thing about Gibson. So far, I played Fender, and was looking for something else. A long time wondering what model choose. So I took Tribute 2017. With three simple reasons - price, specification, neck. Price for what it Gibson offers in the latest model Tribute 2017 is simply very good. The specification is a wonderful, classic hot pickups, great looks, the guitar simply knocks its beauty. I decided on this guitar, also because regarding the profile of the neck - slim taper neck. It is well made, very comfortable, the play is really nice and easy. The sound of this guitar and workmanship are top-flight. My Tribute is made from a single piece of mahogany ! From out of the box, guitar require just a normal correction. Replaced strings, I set the neck, strings action, adjusted the intonation. Intonation is perfect. Guitar tunes every penny for each fretboard. Guitar comes with a dedicated gig bag, papers, photo guitar before packing, strap and keys. Something beautiful. This is so far my best purchase in the new year.

I love it better than my Les Paul Faded.

By Flash

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Tribute T 2017 Electric Guitar:

This guitar is a step above the Faded series and it has the slim neck and 490 neck pickup which i prefer. The 490t is better than i thought it would be and you can get plenty of sweet overdrive with it. The 490r is smooth enough to play jazz. The slim neck is just great! The only problem is it has a lot of static electricity and when you move your hands around on the neck it pops some. I was going to send it back but its not bad enough to me to not buy it. The only other issue is the frets aren't quite as filed as i would want but thats not that bad. Its well worth the money.

      Gibson is back!

      By mic

      from chicago

      Comments about Gibson Les Paul Tribute T 2017 Electric Guitar:

      I was a little bit Leary at first, I have had the cheaper models in the past like the SJG series models, shipping was fast and early, I have the Honey burst LP, out of the box , tried to inspect every thing I know to check and it past my test, only thing I had to do was lower the action a little, and intonate, plugged her in a Laney amp and magic to my ears! , this is a great guitar with no frills but has a certain charm to it, it is the most comfortable guitar I have played in a long time, even from the 2000$ and up ones, great job Gibson, well built and true Gibson sound, my main guitar for now, have a custom built one costing much more, and this one beats it!

      Comments about Gibson Les Paul Tribute T 2017 Electric Guitar:

      I order the faded honey burst it was on back order but I still recieved it before expected. Out if the box this guitar only needed a quick tune up and I was jammin'. I have no issues with this guitar it plays great, feels great, and sounds great. No flaws in the finish and the les paul sustain is there. The price is a steal for this beast. Not a fan of gig bag or the strap. Excuse me while I go play some guitar!

      Comments about Gibson Les Paul Tribute T 2017 Electric Guitar:

      Great guitar! I have spent years as a fan of super Strats, but this guitar has changed me. It has a supe comfortable neck for someone that has been used to a slimmer neck. The pickups are very bright for alnico 2 magnets, and can easily cover nearly any genre of music. The weight relieved body leaves it very light once strapped on, but doesn't neck dive. The set up out of the box was not great, but with a small bit of tweaking, played great in less than an hour. No flaws in the finish, and the maple top has a slight bit of flaming in it. For being the opposite of what it would usually go for, I am happy to say that this had become my number one go to guitar.

          Absolutely stunning guitar. My first high end guitar after an epiphone and cheap tele. The finish is stunning. Pictures don't do it justice. Sounds great. The neck is perfect and arrived in tune! Plays like a dream. With the veterans day promo I paid less than 800 for a real american made les paul. Fantastic. Looking forward to adding more Gibsons in the future.

          Comments about Gibson Les Paul Tribute T 2017 Electric Guitar:

          Apon arrival I was dissapointed. Unfinished back and neck seemed cheap to me. But the price is attractive. The top was well done to so I moved on with the tests. Plugged it in and WOW. The pickups are very clear and punchy , and the sustain goes on for days with sexy harmonics at the tail end. Very good bang for the buck for a middle of the way to lifetime guitar.
