Description


Don't let anyone tell you any different: the Les Paul is a legend. And you can wax lyrical about any number of different features and characteristics that supposedly make it better than the rest. But more than anything, it's the sound. With this Les Paul Tribute, it's no different. Gibson have fitted it with 490 R & T humbuckers - designed to make your playing sound bigger and better than ever.

For a start, they're powerful. They perform supremely well at high output, meaning you can be sure every note slices through the mix. Precisely, too. Because the 490s eliminate hum and noise interference, ensuring maximum clarity in your music. Alnico II magnets bring classic sound quality and sustain. And changing your tone is easy. Pickup switching and individual tonal controls help you to shape your sound to suit your playing. So every lead line will sing, every chord will boom, and every performance will leave your audience breathless.

But it's still a Les Paul. That weighty, backache-inducing body? Gone. The LP Tribute features Gibson's superb ultra-modern weight-relieved body. It's mahogany, so it still maintains all of the classic depth of tone you'd expect from a Les Paul. But unlike older models, it'll feel practically weightless around your shoulders. So you can move around freely and play lengthy shows and studio sessions - uninterrupted by strain. Total freedom to play, without anything holding you back.

Attention-to-detail has been paid to every single aspect of the Tribute's neck to ensure it delivers the most complete playing experience possible. And it all starts with a wonderful rounded profile. Designed to fit perfectly to the contours of your hand, it provides exquisite comfort at every point up and down the guitar's scale. So you can banish hand cramp to the past. And the rosewood fingerboard is slick, delivering a tremendously smooth playing action - ideal for speedy soloing.

It's not just in the playability where this expertly-crafted neck excels, though. It's also capable of delivering exquisite tone. Made from premium maple, it offers a bright, sharp sound that will help your high notes sparkle. Paired with the beautiful warmth of the rosewood fretboard, you've got a far-reaching tonal palette that can handle any genre or style.
