The Les Paul '50s Tribute 2016 T gives you classic '50s styling, traditional humbucker tones and amazing playability without the vintage price tag.

The Gibson Les Paul '50s Tribute 2016 T features a solid maple top on a chambered mahogany body, giving players added lightweight comfort as well as the familiar tonewood combination to produce that classic Les Paul sound. The smooth satin finish gives the Les Paul '50s Tribute a beautiful, yet simple look. The quarter-sawn mahogany neck boasts a comfortably rounded '50s style profile that will fill out your fretting hand nicely, while the instrument's unbound body and neck are consistent with the popular Les Paul Studio line. For superb playability and effortless bending, the neck carries a 12"-radius baked maple fingerboard that houses 22 medium-jumbo frets.

The Les Paul '50s Tribute 2016 T comes loaded with 490R/498T humbuckers to deliver that powerful growl and bite that you've come to expect from a Les Paul. This modern day classic comes equipped with a set of vintage Kluson-style tuning machines to offer traditional looks with exceptional tuning stability. The Les Paul '50s Tribute 2016 T also features a classic pairing of a Tune-O-Matic bridge with a stopbar tailpiece for maximum sustain. Comes complete with a Gibson Gig Bag.

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Studio '50s Tribute Electric Guitar with Deluxe Gig Bag:

I've owned several Gibson Les Pauls through the years including a Custom. This guitar rocks as good as any of them for an unbeatable price. To the guy who talks about save for a real Les Paul. This is a real Les Paul. I had an Epiphone Les Paul for a few months and it was a beginner's guitar. Glossy finish and body and neck binding don't create the tone. The woods and pickups do. This has the same pickup configuration of the more modern Customs and has the maple top on the mahogany body. Kudos to Gibson for finally producing quality guitars at a great price point. Their sales should skyrocket with this line of Les Pauls.

The finish is flawless. The electronics second to none as usual. It is what it is. A Les Paul Studio at an affordable price. If you can live without the gloss, this guitar is for you.

      Comments about Gibson Les Paul Studio '50s Tribute Electric Guitar with Deluxe Gig Bag:

      This is a great guitar. The 50s neck is incredibly easy to play (coming from a lifetime of strat playing), very fast, and comfortable. The tone is very deep, very thick, exactly what you'd expect from a Les Paul. The treble is a little thin on the lead setting/clean channel, but that's my only complaint. I like the rhythm setting better than on any guitar I've played. With some OD/distortion, this guitar just howls. I played a classic ($2000) when in the store just for comparison, I liked this one better. Same tonewoods as the standard, just no binding or gold hardware. This is a great value for the money in my opinion. I can't wait to gig with this thing. Got great service as usual. The only caveat I have is don't expect a high singing tone, it doesn't do 'Strat', but if that's what you were after you'd get an American strat anyway (though that would cost you more). The appearance of this guitar is a step above most studios as well, the satin sunburst finish is really smooth, very retro cool.

      Bought one, returned it.

      Comments about Gibson Les Paul Studio '50s Tribute Electric Guitar with Deluxe Gig Bag:

      Bought this guitar, received it, checked it out, had a setup done, and returned it 3 days later. Why? If you want a Gibson, and you're on a budget this is for you...I guess. Or you can get a studio for $799. Difference? This is trying to be something it's not. You want a nice Les Paul? Save your $$ and get a Les Paul with binding, and some craftsmanship to it. This is a bottom of the barrel Les Paul, no frills, no extras. Black body and neck, painted gold top, no finish. If that's for you go for it, it felt like a cheap version of what I really wanted, and it was. I have a couple of Epi Les Pauls (Plus top, and a custom) and they are great guitars. I expected this to blow them away because GIBSON Les Paul's are soo much better. Not the case with these guitars. Get a studio for $799 or save your $$ and get a nice Les Paul, these may hold their value, but they will never go up or be considered collectors either.
