Overview

No-nonsense performance, classic tones, and textured satin finish.

The Les Paul Studio '50s Tribute is built on a solid tradition. Ever since its introduction in 1983, the Les Paul Studio model has been enormously popular with players seeking the power and versatility of the original Les Paul Standard in a ready-for-action package, with a price to match. The instruments' reduced ornamentation”lacking body or fingerboard binding, and using plainer tops”has helped to put them in the hands of many more players, while their adherence to the Les Paul's hardware, pickup, and construction traditions retained all the thick, meaty tone and unsurpassed playability for which the Standard has been known for nearly 60 years.

The Les Paul Studio '50s Tribute has a traditional Les Paul mahogany body with a maple top that is graced with a grain texured satin finish. The mahogany neck with a '50s profile has a 22-fret baked maple fingerboard which adds the snappy response of ebony, but retains a warm, traditional medium-brown look like pau ferro. A 490R neck humbucker and 498T bridge humbucker harness the resonant power of the time-tested selection of tonewoods. TonePros Kluson-style tuners and the faithful Tune-O-Matic bridge keep your tuning and intonation right where it should be.

Baked Maple:
Aging maple through a œbaking process called torrefaction. The wood is kept at 200-300º F for a period of time until the wood knows it' no longer a tree; Moisture is restored under pressure. This makes the wood very hard, sonically œlive and extremely stable. The snappy sound of ebony, with the look of medium-brown pau ferro. Many boutique manufacturers are now using this because it improves the wood with no chemical treatment, it' environmentally friendly and is great for making better sounding and playing guitars!
