What's special about this product?
Features: What it does for you:
Mahogany body Rich, warm, focused sound; added sustain
'57 Classic humbucking pickups Vintage PAF feel; warmth, depth and distinct edge
'60s asymmetrical neck profile Slim, tapered shape built for comfort
Rosewood fretboard Open, warm tone and smooth playing feel
The Gibson Les Paul Future Tribute offers a legendary electric guitar design with some revolutionary new features, for a one-of-a-kind playing experience.

Classic Electronics For Maximum Tonal Versatility

The Future Tribute has two zebra-coil '57 Classic humbucker pickups onboard, following with the general agreement that these matched Alnico sets offer the greatest possible tonal versatility of any Gibson pickups. The neck has a unique and custom sawn asymmetrical profile for a distinctive feel that is meant to better accommodate the natural lie of the human hand. The pickup covers themselves are an elegant two-tone design set in an well-accented housing. The Future Tribute dispenses with a pickguard entirely, giving it a more stripped-down appearance.

A Totally Unique Neck Design

The Future Tribute's solid mahogany neck is deeply set with the highest amount of neck-to-body surface contact of any Gibson Les Paul. This neck is totally custom, carved in distinctive asymmetrical profile that is calculated to best fit the natural shape of the human hand. It is .800 inches of an inch at the 1st fret and .875 inches at the 12th. It is topped with a rosewood fingerboard and 22 medium-jumbo frets with classic trapezoid inlays. Many believe it to be the most playable Les Paul yet to emerge.

Excellent Wood Combinations

The tonewood combination on the Gibson Les Paul Future Tribute pairs a mahogany body with solid maple top. This tried-and-true combination consistently yields a richness and sustain of tone that cannot be matched. The mahogany back is strategically weight relieved using modern weight relief methods to both lighten your load and improve resonance.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great value"
Overall: For several years now, Gibson has been bringing USA made guitars into the realm of affordability for most musicians! During that time I've taken advantage special deals on 3 different Les Pauls...and all 3 guitars heve been great! I think right now ...Gibson is building the best guitar available for your dollar. ...I'll never stop collecting Les Pauls!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
