Offers up breathtaking Les Paul performance in a modern, no-frills package.
The 1950s Tribute electric guitar consists of a basic Gibson Les Paul chassis with all the essential elements needed to rock, including a tight-grained "bookmatched" maple top that fits snugly on a two-piece mahogany body. This wood combination yields a specific yet versatile tone that many guitarists have come to demand. The one-piece mahogany neck has Gibson's traditional rounded profile, which graces the neck of each Gibson Les Paul Studio 1950s Tribute, emulates the neck shapes of the iconic Les Paul Standards of the late 1950s. Rosewood fingerboards and trapezoid inlays have been a mainstay feature on Gibson Les Paul guitars ever since the model's introduction in the 1950s. The resilience of dense and durable rosewood makes these fingerboards extremely balanced and stable, and gives each chord and note unparalleled clarity and bite. Additionally, the 12-inch radius of the Gibson Les Paul Studio's fingerboard provides smooth note bending capabilities and eliminates "dead" or "choked out" notes. The traditional trapezoid inlays are made of figured acrylic, and offer a classic "pearl" look.
The headstock of the Gibson Les Paul Studio 1950s Tribute is equipped with Grover Kluson style green keys. With a gear ratio of 14:1, these tuners deliver precision tuning in a durable housing that provides maximum protection for the gear and string post. The Gibson Les Paul's Tune-O-Matic bridge, sets a standard for simplicity and functionality that has never been bettered. The Tune-O-Matic provides a firm seating for the strings, allowing the player to adjust and fine-tune the intonation and string height in a matter of minutes.
Both the neck and bridge position pickups are equipped with cream-colored screaming single-coil P-90 pickups. The P-90 was the standard pickup on all Gibson guitars in the late 1940s and into the 1950s and because of its crisp, bright tone it has experienced resurgence in popularity with many of today's modern rockers. These classic Gibson guitar pickups deliver sizzling, slightly gritty midrange roar. You'll find that the P-90s' high output and biting treble has more nuanced harmonic coloring than the typical single-coil pickup.
The Gibson Les Paul Studio 1950s Tribute guitar has a finish that looks a little used, and has a smooth, worn look to it, which lets you see and feel the wood grain's natural beauty. Comes with a durable Gibson gig bag.
