A tribute to the Les Paul that put the hard into rock.

The 2013 Les Paul ™70s Tribute captures the look, feel, and tone of a heavy sounding evolution of this legendary single-cutaway solidbody, the Les Paul of the 1970s. Like many Les Pauls of the era of heavy rock, the Les Paul ™70s Tribute carries a pair of high-output humbucking pickups for unparalleled overdrive tones, along with the characteristic ˜70s neck profile with volute. Gibson' most acclaimed hardware set ensures smooth playability and offers precise tuning and intonation.

Built in the image of the world-beating Les Pauls of the 1970s, the Les Paul ™70s Tribute starts with the classic tonewood combination of a mahogany body with solid carved maple top. When paired, these woods offer a tonal depth and complexity unmatched by any single-wood construction, with warmth and richness from the mahogany, and superb clarity and œsnap from the maple, all of which translates to surprising breadth and articulation within the guitar' scorching amped-up sound.

The mahogany back is strategically weight relieved to both lighten your load and improve resonance. A solid mahogany neck is glued into the body in Gibson' time-tested tradition, and carved to a characteristic medium ™70s profile that measures .810 at the 1st fret and .930 at the 12th, with period-correct volute to strengthen the back-angled headstock. It is topped with a genuine rosewood fingerboard that carries 22 medium-jumbo frets and traditional trapezoid inlays. In keeping with the stripped-down ethos of this powerful performer, both body and ™board remain unbound, and there' no pickguard to obscure the finish. A PLEK-cut nut made from black Corian subtly complements the black witch-hat knobs with silver inserts and black pickup rings, while enhancing resonance and sustain. The headstock is silkscreened with a gold Gibson logo and Les Paul Model.

The Les Paul ™70s Tribute takes its firepower from a pair of Gibson' mighty Dirty Fingers humbucking pickups, a legendary component of ™70s firepower, and among the two hottest pickups that Gibson has ever designed. These scorching humbuckers include powerful ceramic magnets and over-wound coils for a sizzling, sustainful sound that nevertheless remains clear and articulate. The traditional wiring complement of an independent volume and tone control per pickup plus a three-way toggle selector switch allows a broad range of sonic variations.

To anchor it all down, Gibson USA loads in a Tune-o-Matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, with a set of genuine Grover kidney button tuners, a hardware set that partners up for solid sustain and precision tuning. Put it all together, and the Les Paul ™70s Tribute presents the perfect celebration of the Les Paul' advancement into the age of heavy rock, wrapping it all into a great guitar that brings the look, feel, and sound of a high-output humbucker-loaded Les Paul to the hands of players of today.

Each guitar includes a black Gibson gig bag, owner' manual and truss rod wrench.
