There aren't many guitars on the market today that offer such a hybrid of older, vintage models and the modern craftsmanship Gibson are renowned for. The Gibson 2016 Les Paul Studio 60s Tribute in Satin Ebony pays homage to the faster, slimmer necks originally intoduced in the 1960s.
Authentic 60's tribute - a modern classic!
Like the Les Pauls of the 1960's, the 2016 Studio guitar features a thick mahogany body topped with maple as well as a mahogany neck finished with a rosewood fretboard. This wood combination is what gave the Les Paul its signature sound back in the 60's and it still works to this day, a tried and tested formula for success. Even though this faithful re-issue now features a chambered weight-relieved body, the tone is still warm and full, and lends itself well to a wide range of playing styles.
Another thing that adds to the unique appeal of this guitar is the use of P90 pickups, which were gradually phased out when the Humbuckers were introduced to the Les Paul line in the late 1950's. Their iconic, 'hot' single coil sound that defined the sound of many early rock styles especially more aggressive music like punk. If you need a soaring, crisp lead sound in your arsenal, then the LP Studio 60s Tribute Traditional could be the guitar to fit the bill!
Perhaps the biggest evolution in the Les Paul from the 50s to 60s was the neck. This LP Studio features a slimtaper 60's-style neck profile and a more manageable 1 11/16" nut width, the choice of fast-fingered rockers for over five decades . The unbound, hand-finished rosewood fretboard adds a minimalistic yet top quality touch to the traditional specification.
