The Gibson 2016 Les Paul 60s Tribute electric guitar is an impressive take on the legendary model. Equipped with luxurious tonewoods, versatile pickups that offer a smooth output, and finished to the impressively high standard we've come to expect from Gibson, this is an affordable model that is begging for your attention.
60s Style with Modern Benefits
The 2016 Les Paul 60s Tribute electric guitar resurrects features of the classic model, offering delicate appointments that make it a joy to perform with. First of all, mahogany has been employed as the body tonewood to provide warmth with a robust mid to low-end energy. Paired with the mahogany is a sublime maple top, which provides a brightness and sparkling clarity that softens the tonal output of this beauty to guarantee the signature 'well-rounded' Les Paul tone. To improve the playability of this model, Gibson has incorporated their modern weight-relief construction method, which allows the guitar to retain its powerful output, whilst guaranteeing a lightweight playing feel.
Typical of the 60s models, the solid mahogany neck has been shaped to a slender 60s-style profile, with a classic Les Paul neck heel and original 1 11/16" width. The neck construction is reassuringly sturdy, whilst the proportions are exquisitely crafted to guarantee the most comfortable playing feel. Paired with the neck is a single-piece rosewood fingerboard, which is adorned with trapezoid position inlays to guide your way in style. The combination of mahogany and rosewood - along with the hand-finished set-up -, guarantees a fast-playing feel with the utmost comfort.
The 2016 Les Paul 60s Tribute electric guitar is equipped with a pair of P90 pickups, which breaks from the traditional 60s pickup arrangement that employs humbuckers. Therefore, you have the winning combination of weight-relieved body, slender yet solid neck, and gritty single-coil energy of the P90s at your disposal. Control of the pickups comes in the form of individual volume and tone controls for each pickup, with Orange Drop capacitors on-hand so that even the subtlest of adjustments is executed with absolute precision. The three-way pickup selector switch allows you to choose either pickup individually, or create a blend of both. If you're looking for iconic blues or rock-inspired tones, then the P90s are just what you're after.
The Gibson 2016 Les Paul 60s Tribute electric guitar is equipped with a Graph Tech nut, which works closely with the traditional tuning machines to stabilise string tension and tuning integrity throughout each and every performance. The body is fitted with a tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, a partnership that creates a seamless connection between the strings and body to optimise sustain and intonation. Adjustment of the string action can be carried out with ease, and no matter what string gauge you prefer to adopt, this enduring set-up will keep you firmly in tune as you rock out.
Each 2016 Les Paul 60s Tribute electric guitar comes with its very own Gibson gig bag so that no matter where your music takes you, your pride and joy is well-protected on the go.
