The Gibson Les Paul Tribute to Les electric guitar pays homage to the legendary guitar and music innovator. This incredible guitar has many of the features of the original Les Pauls of the early '50s that Les worked with Gibson to build. The 1-piece mahogany body with no weight relief, dual P-90 pickups, Orange Drop capacitors and a wraparound trapeze tailpiece give you that '50s Les Paul look and tone.

Some unique touches that pay tribute to Les Paul will make the guitar really stand out. A maple veneer on the headstock features Les' photo, laser-etched. Gibson also outfitted the guitar with a Lester William Polsfuss stamped pickguard in his handwriting.

Great guitar from 2013 which has resurfaced, only 400 worldwide of which 121 have been discovered in the Gibson factory. Its a must have but make sure your shoulder and back are ready as it weighs between 10 and 12 lbs. Sounds great clean or with a little or a lot of dirt added. Great low action, shipped with lite gauge strings which depending on your style of play could be changed. Has a great finish not on of those satin finishes and a custom case with 6 latches. Destine to be a collectors piece. Don't wait when there gone there gone and I'm sure those who purchase will not let the go. This is a $5000.00 guitar with a $200.00 case for less than $2000.00 what a value. I am a Les Paul fan who has owned more guitars than even my wife cares to know about and this is in the top 2%!! Don't pass this up, own a part of history that will only go up in value. Wish I had $20,000.00 to invest right now, I would most certainly purchase many more.
