The Les Paul '60s Tribute 2016 HP includes all the essential elements needed to rock in classic style, with its gnarly P-90s and the archetypal combination of a solid carved maple top with chambered mahogany body for tone with the full Les Paul pedigree. While authentic vintage-style finishes present a guitar with the look of a well-played original, and the instrument's unbound body and fingerboard offer tasteful minimalism, the HP version adds the High-Performance line's signature features. An exclusive fast-access heel developed specifically for Gibson USA High Performance lineup allows unparalleled access to the high notes, and when combined with a slim taper neck profile and soloist neck width, results in the fastest playing Les Paul ever made. Titanium metal for the saddles and the adjustable zero-fret nut delivers a bright, crisp tone, while being virtually indestructible and ensuring total, personalized control over the action.

A fast early '60s profile meets Gibson USA's innovative soloist neck width and fast-access heel for unprecedented playability. Gibson's zero-fret titanium nut yields faster action than you've ever experienced, completing a high-quality set up that perfectly blends 21st century performance with an appealing vintage vibe.

A mahogany body and maple top crank out authentic '60s tones via two P-90 pickups made with Alnico magnets and traditional winding techniques for that beloved fat single-coil tone. A titanium nut and titanium bridge saddles allow outstanding clarity and read more sustain.

A thicker one-piece fingerboard with hand-rubbed oil finish, G-Force tuners, genuine mother-of-pearl inlays, improved knobs and plastics, and an exclusive labor-intensive hand-applied process for a tactile satin nitrocellulose finish all add up to superior quality for optimum looks, feel and tone.

"Great Guitar"
Overall: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I was very impressed with the quality of this guitar. A lot of bang for the buck. Pickups sound great. I really like the wider neck. Eliminates the the possibility of the high E coming off the fretboard. The nut seems to have eliminated most of the issues with the G string going out of tune. On the fence about the tuners. Pretty sure I could tune the guitar faster than the robot but it is nice to have the option. Manual tuning is a little harder because of the feel of the machines. I like the feel of the neck joint. All in all I am very happy with this purchase and would highly recommend this guitar.
