GIBSON LES PAUL TRIBUTE
RRP: $2,099 • australismusic.com.au
To guitarists everywhere, the Les Paul’s appeal is magnetic with its seductive looks, sensuous playability and timeless tone. The Tribute’s satin-finished mahogany and maple body offers of warmth and sustain, and its slim taper mahogany neck honours a style beloved throughout the ages.
Typically reserved for top-dollar custom guitars, the Les Paul Tribute feels fast and precise, largely thanks to Plek processing which levels the frets with pinpoint precision. The maple top brings a bright edge to the warmth of the mahogany body, while the slim taper neck provides the comfort of a ‘60s Les Paul.
The Les Paul Tribute features 490R (rhythm) and 498T (treble) pickups. Based on the ’57 Classic, these pickups deliver a more contemporary humbucking sound with increased upper mids.
