Gibson's '57 pickups offer classic Les Paul sound in the Epiphone Tribute Plus.
Epiphone's long friendship with innovator Les Paul dates back to the late '30s and early '40s when Les and fellow guitarists such as Charlie Christian and George Barnes were at the forefront of jazz guitar. Epi Stathopoulos and Les were good friends and Epi would let Les use the Epiphone factory on 14th Street in New York City at night after hours to experiment on guitar and pickup designs. This also was the era when Les, inspired by the stinging sustain heard in electric steel guitars, began dreaming of making a solidbody guitar. He built his first, the legendary "Log," at the Epi factory in 1941. Over the years, Les continued to work closely with Epiphone luthiers, reviewing new product ideas and offering suggestions. Now, the Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus honors Epiphone's friendship with Les by combining his classic design features with legendary Epiphone quality and value with the added power of Gibson® USA '57 Classic humbuckers.
But this guitar is not just about recreating the "old," it's also about looking ahead, just as Les himself continued to do throughout his lifetime. Using 4-conductor pickup wiring, Epiphone has added two push/pull tone pots to allow for series/parallel pickup switching. The result is a Les Paul with all the standard sounds plus a huge palette of tonal possibilities at your fingertips.
The Les Paul Tribute Plus also features Epiphone's famous built-to-last hardware and electronics including a U.S. Switchcraft™ 3-way toggle, Mallory-150 tone capacitors, Epiphone StrapLocks, 16:1 ratio premium Grover® locking tuners, and a premium hardshell case.

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus Electric Guitar:
I was vey excited when I bought thi guitar considering that it had the 57 classics and the series/parallel but since the moment I bought it the problems started. when it arrived the cartboad box was all tore up but since it came with a hard case I decided to keep it. the knobs where all twisted instead of just being flat and and the worst part is that it had fret buzz all over, at first you dont notice it because the action that comes from the factory is really high , I mean extremely high so that hides all the issues but once you lower the action there is fret buzz all over, i even sent it to my tech to ix it and the buzz appeared on other frets after. my advice is that if you are willing to take the risk of going through this much trouble(DON'T) then get it because it looks and sounds great if not then dont even think about getting it.
