The Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus brings together the classic design of the Les Paul; with a pair of Gibson USA ’57 classic humbuckers and Epiphone build quality and value.
Body & Neck
The Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus is constructed with quality tonewoods. The back of the body is made of solid mahogany paired with a solid, carved hard maple top for the perfect combination of warmth and crisp snap. Continuing the theme is a hand-fitted, glued-in, solid mahogany neck with a 60's SlimTaper "D" shape profile for fast-playing comfort.
The Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus is finished in a Midnight Sapphire Blue the beautiful grain of the maple top showing through.
Of course where would all these amazing woods be with a decent set of pickups to successful interpret their nuances? Luckily you don’t need to worry about that; the Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus comes loaded with a pair of Gibson USA '57 Classic humbucker pickups.
The '57 Classic sitting in the neck position gives you that humbucker crunch with even response and tone that is both warm and subtle. The '57 Classic Plus at the bridge gives you full-bodied vintage sound with a slightly higher output, reminiscent of the late ‘50s.
Controlling the pickups is a Switchcraft three-way toggle switch and independent volume and tone knobs. What’s more the tones pots feature a push/pull design for series/parallel pickup switching. Vintage sound with a plethora of tonal-colouring options is yours with the Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus Electric Guitar.
