Description

Details

The Gibson 2017 Les Paul Tribute HP Electric Guitar bears all the hallmarks of a classic Les Paul, with a subtle satin finish that offers a smooth and subtle aesthetic. The sleek lines and single-cutaway body shape are instantly recognisable, whilst the traditional tonewood setup creates that legendary Les Paul tone. Gibson have included modern appointments that improves playability and performance, making the Tribute HP the ideal choice for gigging pros who demand the highest levels of quality.

Sophisticated Les Paul design

From thundering roar to smooth and creamy tones, the heart of the Les Paul's timbre is generated by a mahogany back, which is paired with a grade A maple top. The mahogany generates a powerful mid to low end energy with a generous amount of sustain. The maple cuts through with a sweet high-end clarity, rounding out the upper frequency range.

In order to make the model lightweight and more comfortable to perform with, Gibson have treated the body to a 9-hole weight relief system. The powerful timbre of the guitar is not compromised in any way, which makes this a dream model for those who are seeking a Les Paul that is more forgiving on your back when played over long periods of time.

Sturdy and responsive neck

The body is paired with a sturdy mahogany neck via a mortise and tenon joint that has been reinforced using Franklin Titebond 50 adhesive. Shaped to a slimtaper profile, the neck is a joy to perform on. Married to the body is a sublime rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 frets that are adorned with trapezoid position inlays to guide your way in style. The single-cutaway body profile allows you to reach the upper frets with ease, giving you complete freedom to explore the neck in its entirety.

Improved G-FORCE auto-tuning

Gibson has equipped the 2017 Les Paul Tribute HP with an updated version of their G-FORCE auto-tuning system. This sits at the back of the headstock, and gives you access to alternate tunings and adjustment with greater speed and accuracy. The improved synchronized spur gear system moves smoothly and quietly, making changes efficiently so that you can get on with concentrating on your performance. Plus, boasting a 40:01 gear ratio, the G-FORCE system guarantees that your tuning will remain consistent throughout the most energetic of performances.

Fitted to the body is a chrome-plated aluminium Tune-o-Matic bridge with titanium saddles and locking thumbwheels, as well as a chrome-plated aluminium stop bar tailpiece with locking studs. The bridge and tailpiece work together harmoniously to optimise intonation and sustain by creating a seamless connection between the strings and body.

'57 Classic humbuckers

The Gibson 2017 Les Paul Tribute HP Electric Guitar is home to a '57 Classic in the neck position, and a '57 Classic Plus in the bridge. The depth and warmth of the mahogany is given the commanding presence it deserves, with a hearty mid to low-end energy flowing from the pickups, thanks to the wound Alnico II magnet-powered humbuckers. The crispness of the maple rings truly, offering a snappy counterpoint to the dense mahogany.

Control over the pickups comes in the form of new push-pull knurled knobs, which are finished in chrome to accentuate the stunning body finish. The switchable functions on offer are: to Tap or Split either pickup; activate an integrated High Pass Filter; or introduce transient suppression. The range of tones on offer is truly staggering, and you'll wonder how you ever got by without this guitar in your arsenal during any studio session or tour.

Included Accessories

To complete the package, the Gibson 2017 Les Paul Tribute HP is supplied with a padded gig bag to protect your new pride and joy, as well as get you out on the road asap.
