The Gibson 2016 Les Paul 60s Tribute HP electric guitar draws all its influence from the beautiful models made in the 60s and give them a High Performance twist. Built from luxurious tonewoods and equipped with versatile pickups that offer a smooth output, the 60s Tribute is finished to the impressively high standard we've come to expect from Gibson.
60s Style with Modern Appointments
The 2016 Les Paul 60s Tribute HP electric guitar restores features of the original model, offering delicate appointments that make it a joy to play. Firstly, mahogany has been chosen as the body tonewood to provide warmth with a powerful mid to low-end energy. Paired with the mahogany is a sublime maple top, which provides a bright and sparkling clarity that guarantees that authentic 'well-rounded' Les Paul tone. To improve the playability of this model, Gibson have opted to use their modern weight-relief construction method, which allows the guitar to retain its powerful output, whilst ensuring a lightweight playing feel.
Typical of the 60s models, the solid mahogany neck has been shaped to a SlimTaper profile, and is one of Gibson's best necks yet for smooth, fast playability. Further enhancing its feel in your hand is an exclusive fast-access neck heel, allowing for easier access to the upper frets. Paired with the neck is a single-piece rosewood fingerboard, which is adorned with Mother of Pearl trapezoid position inlays to guide your way in style. The combination of mahogany and rosewood with a slender width guarantees a fast-playing feel with ultimate comfort.
The 2016 Les Paul 60s Tribute HP electric guitar is armed with a pair of P90 pickups, which breaks from the traditional 60s pickup arrangement that employs humbuckers. Therefore, you have the fantastic combination of a weight-relieved body, slender yet solid neck, and bold single-coil energy of the P90s at your disposal. Control of the pickups comes in the form of individual Volume and Tone control pots for each pickup, allowing you to shape your sound to suit your playing needs. The three-way pickup selector switch allows you to choose either pickup individually, or have a fusion 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 HP electric guitar is equipped with a Zero Fret nut, which works closely with the modern, next-generation G FORCE tuning machines to stabilise string tension and tuning integrity everytime you play. The body is fitted with a Tune-o-matic bridge and traditional stopbar tailpiece which create a clear and coherent connection between the strings and body to improve sustain and intonation.
Each 2016 Les Paul 60s HP Tribute electric guitar comes with its very own Gibson High Performance gig bag so that no matter where your music takes you, your pride and joy is well-protected on the go.
