The Les Paul 50s tribute HP electric guitar embodies the full magic of this legendary guitar design based on the original that started it all. With its rounded neck profile, 490R and 498T pickups, mahogany body and maple top the Les Paul 50s tribute HP gives the look, feel and sound of the first generation Les Paul's to the hands of players today.
AAA grade wood
As you would expect from a Les Paul, the 50s tribute HP model comes with a body made from classic tonewoods. A mahogany body with a AAA grade, carved maple top complete with satin finish gives tons of tonal depth and complexity. The mahogany back is strategically weight relieved for added comfort and improved resonance.
Traditional rounded profile
In Gibson’s time tested tradition, a solid mahogany neck is glued into the body of the Les Paul 50s tribute HP and comfortably rounded to a 50s profile measuring .818” at the first fret and .963” at the 12th. Complimenting the neck is a genuine rosewood fingerboard containing 22 medium-jumbo frets and traditional trapezoid inlays in genuine mother-of-pearl. To top this off there is a traditional back-angled headstock complete with a gold Gibson logo.
Classic and cutting edge in one
The Les Paul 50s tribute HP 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.
The Gibson 2016 Les Paul 50s Tribute HP Electric Guitar also comes with Gibson's state of the art G Force tuning system. With one strum of the strings this powerful automated tuning system will have you in tune within seconds!
Complete with independent volume and tone controls for each pickup plus a three-way toggle selector switch with smooth silent transition, you have access to the sound that made this guitar legendary with a high performance twist.
