Ever since its introduction in 1983, the Les Paul Studio model has been enormously popular with players seeking the power and versatility of the original Les Paul Standard in a ready-for-action package, with a price to match. The Les Paul Studio '60s Tribute sticks to the script entirely, but its five worn '50s-style finishes reflect the wear of a well-played guitar and meaty dual single-coil P-90 pickups give it a look akin to classics from the decade of the Les Paul's birth, while it's fast SlimTaper neck profile reflects the feel of Les Paul Standards from 1960, the year before this legendary solidbody was deleted (temporarily!) from the Gibson line up.
The Les Paul Studio '60s Tribute's Worn Gold Top, Worn Honey Burst, Worn Heritage Cherry Sunburst, Worn Ebony, and Worn White finishes nail the appearance of five popular Standard and Custom finishes from 1952-60, while its unbound body and neck and chambered mahogany body with carved maple top keep it in line with the simplicity that thousands of Les Paul Studio players already cherish.
A Nashville Tune-o-matic bridge, stopbar tailpiece and Kluson-style tuners keep it all rock-solid and resonant and its gnarly P-90 tone stays true to the Les Paul style. All guitars come protected in a black Gibson gigbag and include a Gibson owner's manual.
Body and Finish
A solid, carved maple top and chambered mahogany body give the Les Paul Studio '60s Tribute the same tonewood combination that has been helping Les Pauls rock for nearly 60 years. Five authentic vintage-style finishes present a guitar with the look of a well played original, while the instrument's unbound body and neck keep it in line with the popular Les Paul Studio line. A grain-textured satin finish with 30-sheen lacquer gives the Les Paul Studio '60s Tribute a pre-worn look that enhances its vintage image, and offers a smooth, comfortable playing feel.
Neck and Headstock
The Les Paul Studio '60s Tribute is crafted with a solid quarter-sawn mahogany neck with fast SlimTaper profile, an unbound rosewood fingerboard, and a headstock set at the traditional 17-degree angle for superior transference of vibrational energy-all ingredients of the classic Les Paul Standard of 1960.
Pickups and Electronics
To give it the vintage look and meaty, raw sound that this rock 'n' roller deserves, the Les Paul Studio '60s Tribute carries two Gibson USA P-90 pickups, which are wired through the traditional four-knob Les Paul control array, with a three-way Switchcraft toggle selector.
Designed to offer the rock solid dependability that today's musicians demand, while reflecting the look of classic hardware from the mid-'60s, the Les Paul Studio '60s Tribute's Nashville Tune-o-matic bridge, stopbar tailpiece, and Kluson-style tuners present a best-of-both-worlds hardware package.
