The Gibson 2016 Les Paul 50s Tribute Electric Guitar in Vintage Sunburst embodies the full magic of this legendary guitar design, which is based on the original that started it all. Featuring such luxurious appointments as a rounded neck profile, 490R and 498T pickups, and mahogany body with maple top, the Les Paul 50s tribute delivers the look, feel and sound of the first generation Les Paul's to the hands of players today.
As you would expect from a Les Paul, the 50s tribute model is fashioned from a classic tonewood partnership that has stood the test of time. A mahogany body with a carved maple top complete with satin finish ensures a rich depth of tone that is infused with texture and complexity. The mahogany back is strategically weight relieved for added comfort and improved resonance. Available in a range of vintage satin finishes it’s easy to understand why a tribute was made to this amazing classic.
A 50s Rounded Profile
In Gibson’s time tested tradition, a solid mahogany neck is glued into the body of the Les Paul 50s tribute and comfortably rounded to a 50s profile measuring .818” at the first fret and .963” at the 12th. Complementing the neck is a genuine rosewood fingerboard containing 22 medium-jumbo frets and traditional trapezoid inlays. To top this off there is a traditional back-angled headstock complete with a gold Gibson logo and green-coloured vintage style tuners.
The Les Paul 50s tribute comes fully loaded with a 490R humbucking pickup in the neck position and a 498T bridge humbucker. These powerful pickups are made strictly adhering to Gibson’s vintage formula to deliver stunning articulation, snarl and growl to your performance. Complete with independent volume and tone controls for each pickup plus a three-way toggle selector switch, you have access to the sound that made this guitar legendary.
Fitted to the body is a tune-o-matic bridge with accompanying stopbar tailpiece, which work together to uphold intonation and optimise sustain. The anchored support of the bridge and tailpiece partnership allows you to perform with gusto and with total confidence in the Les Paul’s ability to perform.
The Gibson 2016 Les Paul 50s Tribute Electric Guitar in Vintage Sunburst is a delight to perform with, and sounds exquisite. The affordability of this model belies the feeling of luxury that it offers, and to complete the package, every model is supplied with a Gibson gig bag to keep your pride and joy safe and sound.
