Offers up breathtaking Les Paul performance in a modern, no-frills package.

The 1960s Tribute electric guitar consists of a basic Gibson Les Paul chassis with all the essential elements needed to rock including a Nashville Tune-O-Matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece and Kluson-style tuners keep it all rock-solid and resonant and its gnarly P-90 tone stays true to the Les Paul style.

A solid, carved maple top and chambered mahogany body give the Les Paul Studio '60s Tribute the same tonewood combination that has been helping Les Pauls rock for nearly 60 years. Authentic vintage-style finishes present a guitar with the look of a well played original, while the instrument's unbound body and neck keep it in line with the popular Les Paul Studio line.

The headstock of the Gibson Les Paul Studio 1960s Tribute is equipped with Grover Kluson style green keys. With a gear ratio of 14:1, these tuners deliver precision tuning in a durable housing that provides maximum protection for the gear and string post. The Gibson Les Paul's Tune-O-Matic bridge, sets a standard for simplicity and functionality that has never been bettered. The Tune-O-Matic provides a firm seating for the strings, allowing the player to adjust and fine-tune the intonation and string height in a matter of minutes.

Both the neck and bridge position pickups are equipped with cream-colored screaming single-coil P-90 pickups. The P-90 was the standard pickup on all Gibson guitars in the late 1940s and into the 1950s and because of its crisp, bright tone it has experienced resurgence in popularity with many of today's modern rockers. These classic Gibson guitar pickups deliver sizzling, slightly gritty midrange roar. You'll find that the P-90s' high output and biting treble has more nuanced harmonic coloring than the typical single-coil pickup.

      GREAT GUITAR!

      Comments about Gibson Limited Run Les Paul Studio '60s Tribute Electric Guitar:

      After months of waiting for the super in demand back- ordered Gold top 60s tribute to arrive , I am extremely happy with my new guitar! I have ( and love!) a 50s Tribute in Cherry burst that I bought last year after finding out about these guitars way too late to snag a Gold Top .
      Upon opening the box and inspecting the 60s Tribute I found no flaws in the workmanship or materials. The Gold top lo luster finish looked great with the creme p90 covers and pick guard.
      The neck and action felt excellent out of the box and frets were well dressed with no sharp fret ends. When plugging into to a Fender Frontman 212 amp at my bands' rehearsal I got a immediate praise for the sweet P90 tone that sang out strong and true! Intonation was dead on and got a great sound thru all pick up positions. The electronics work just fine with only the slightest extraneous buzzing evident from the p90s. This guitar is not meant for high gain , high distortion amp settings. Most players will by default, try to play this guitar like any other LES PAUL model with humbuckers............WRONG! For sweet vintage tone you cannot go wrong....just set the pickups in the hum canceling middle position and enjoy!

      Les Paul 60s trib a bust, at least for me...

      By Dan Linden

      Comments about Gibson Limited Run Les Paul Studio '60s Tribute Electric Guitar:

      I am going to find a real LP. I got my black 60s yesterday and played it for about two hours. My wife came home and listened for one song and her mouth turned down into a frown. "Yeah," I said. "My thoughts exactly."
      The fingerboard does not fit the neck, you can feel the seam. The top does not fit the body, you can feel the seam. The fret job feels like a cheese grater. The top has so little work done that I had to put a towel over the top edge after ten minutes to keep my arm from aching. Should I go on?
      There is so much buzz from the P90s that I had to take all the power out of the amp and play it so clean it sounded like a Gretsch Country Gentleman and THAT is not why I bought a Les Paul. I know that P90s generate some buzz, but this is ridiculous. It almost seems like the guys at Gibson just took the parts out of the duplicating machines and glued them together without benefit of scrapper or sandpaper. It is really just the poorest piece of work I have ever seen and I would never, NEVER, have bought it had I seen one in a store. Sorry Gibson.
