GIB­SON LES PAUL TRIB­UTE

Australian Guitar - - Hot Gear -

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.
