The Gibson 2019 Les Paul Studio Tribute Electric Guitar offers the classic features of a Les Paul in a stripped-back model that is ready for the stage or studio. The lightweight feel is a gigging-friendly design, whilst the emphatic tonal output is the stuff dreams are made of. Each model is supplied with a Gibson softshell case to keep yours safe on the road, as well as an accessory kit to keep your guitar in pristine condition.
The 2019 Studio Tribute body is built using a Gibson favourite with mahogany, which has been treated to an ultra-modern weight-relief rout to make it exceptionally comfortable to wield on the stage. Paired with the mahogany is an understated maple top, which has been given a resilient coating of satin nitrocellulose lacquer for enhanced playing speed. The lack of superfluous appointments such as binding give this model an unabashed rough-and-ready aesthetic that makes it perfect for gigging musicians who want a no-nonsense model.
Solid and reliable neck
Joined to the body is a steady and responsive maple neck, which is shaped to an elegant slimtaper profile that allows your fretting hand to shift comfortably. The generous 24.75-inch scale length encourages warmth from every note whilst improving string tension and playing consistency. Married to the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 frets that are lavished with acrylic dot position inlays to guide your way. Thanks to the satin finish across the back of the neck, unwanted stickiness or tackiness is prevented from impeding your hand during performances. The 12-inch fingerboard radius allows you to execute elaborate technique with the greatest of ease.
Classic humbucker pickups
The 2019 Les Paul Studio Tribute is equipped with a pair of humbuckers comprising a 490R in the neck position and a 498T in the bridge position. The 490R is an Alnico II magnet powered pickup that expresses a deeply saturated midrange character for chunky blues-inspired tones. The 490T is an Alnico II magnet powered beauty that produces that retains articulate treble to cut through any mix with ease. Whether you're laying down palm-muted power chords or cruising through hot jazz licks it can do it all. The control setup is intuitive and allows you to pull your desired tone from the Studio Tribute with minimal effort.
The headstock is home to vintage style tuning machines with keystone buttons, which uphold tuning integrity dutifully and work alongside the TekToid nut to solidify stability and tension. Fitted to the body is an aluminium tune-o-matic bridge and aluminium stopbar tailpiece, which work in partnership to anchor each string securely for optimised intonation and sustain.
