The Gibson Les Paul Tribute Electric Guitar in Satin Iced Tea is a combination of early-era Les Paul style with modern function. With a raft of modern appointments to complement the vintage heritage this guitar has tonal variety and bags of rock and roll credibility.
The Mahogany body of the Les Paul Tribute has Ultra-Modern weight relief to give you a comfortable experience playing live whilst still retaining the full-bodied tone and sustain Les Paul's are world renowned for. After years of research into this topic, Gibson has managed to drastically reduce the weight of the Les Paul without compromising its sonic integrity. The chambers have been carefully placed throughout the body to give an even distribution that doesn't affect the way the body resonates. As Mahogany is well known for being a warm tonewood with tonnes of sustain, the Les Paul Tribute is great for blues soloing and hard rock riffs despite the removal of bulk from the body.
Rounded Neck Profile
In keeping with the classic vibes, the Les Paul Tribute has been sculpted with a rounded profile Maple neck to really let you get the most out of those blues string bends and hard rock riffs. The fretboard itself is comprised of Rosewood, a smooth playing surface with 22 frets allowing you hit every note and the Acrylic Trapezoid inlays ensure you never lose your way on even the darkest of stages.
The Les Paul Tribute has a 490R humbucker in the neck and a 490T in the bridge. These high-output pickups give you screaming leads to clear cleans with everything in between. With Alnico II magnets these pickups have a classic tone with tonnes of power and sustain giving plenty of mid-range bite. These pickups have different spacings between the pins to match the string spacing, giving a better balance to the overall sound.
The Aluminium Nashville Tune-O-Matic bridge alongside the Aluminium Stopbar is another Gibson mainstay, ensuring the intonation of your guitar is pinpoint. Working in conjunction with the Vintage Deluxe tuning machines you're ensured of complete tuning stability and reliability. The Nickel plating of the hardware alongside the Gold Top Hat knobs complement the finish to give you a guitar that's equally good looking as it is dependable.
The Gibson Les Paul Tribute in Satin Iced Tea has been crafted to the spec of the early-era Les Pauls with some modern refinements resulting in a fantastic piece of kit that will please old and new players alike. A Gibson Soft Shell case is included with this guitar to protect your pride and joy from dents and dings.
