Superb Tone Thanks to Gibson USA Humbuckers
The Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus is an electric guitar that sounds just as stunning as it looks. Its glossy finish AAA maple veneer top and shiny chrome hardware make it an obvious treat for the eyes. But when you plug it in and hear the tone coming off its two Gibson USA '57 Classic humbuckers, you'll understand that its beauty is more than skin deep. Paying tribute to a legendary design with an eye to high-quality and detail, the Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus is a true value to be appreciated by guitarists of any stripe.
Solid Construction Means Solid Tone
The Les Paul Tribute Plus combines a solid mahogany back with a hard maple top to create an instrument of great warmth and resonance. The neck joint follows the deep-set design of the original Les Pauls, maximizing the surface contact between the neck and body and generating awesome sustain. The top itself, of course, steals the show with its AAA carved veneer, available in a variety of dramatic and gorgeous finishes.
A Fast and Friendly Neck Shape
The Les Paul Tribute Plus guitar features the SlimTaper neck with the shallow D shape that emerged in the 1960s, offering players a slimmer, faster design than the 50s-era instruments. With a 12-inch radius fingerboard and 1.68 inch width at the nut, the neck on the Tribute Plus is designed to feel solid yet playable in anyone's hands.
The Highest Quality Electronics Onboard
The authentic Gibson USA '57 Classic humbucker pickups in this baby mean that it delivers a classic tone right out of the case. It comes complete with the famous 'Patent Applied For' label on the base plate to indicate its famous pedigree. In the neck position you'll find the '57 Classic pickup, generally used by rhythm guitarists to get a more transparent and warm sound for chording or backup playing. In the bridge position is the '57 Classic Plus Humbucker that uses an extra dense enamel-coated coil inside, creating a slightly higher output for playing leads or more assertive power chords.
Both pickups are wired with 4-conductor wiring and individual push/pull tone pots to allow for series/parallel pickup switching. This means that your Tribute Plus has maximal tonal possibilities, even allowing you to get brighter single-coil-like sounds when desired.
Beautiful Hardware Accents
The Les Paul Tribute Plus comes complete with shiny nickel Locktone Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar, along with Grover Tuners to ensure great tuning stability. The ivory-colored frames around the pickups and the pearloid trapezoid inlays in the 22 fret neck stay true to the vintage styling.
