Product Description
For players that prefer a more vintage feel, this year's Les Paul Studio '50s Tribute T combines all the right features at an irresistible price. It packs the prefect combination of a traditional mahogany body with modern weight relief and a grain textured satin finish maple top. These time-tested tonewoods with a set mahogany neck produce legendary Les Paul sound and resonance.

The neck sports a rounded '50s neck profile that traditionalists love. The fretbourd is made of a single piece of thick rosewood for seminal tone and enhanced sustain. A historically correct neck width and Graph Tech nut make for a familiar feel with enhanced sustain. A pair of 490R (neck) and hotter 498T (bridge) pickups showcases the full power of alnico magnets recreating faithfully the experience of the original Patent Applied For humbuckers of the day.

Traditional green-key tuners blend vintage appearance with modern performance while an ABR adjustable bridge with stopbar tailpiece makes action adjustments and intonation a snap. This year' Les Paul '50s Tribute T comes with a padded gig bag and is an exceptional value.

Reviews From Buyers
I was curious about this model, drawn to the idea of a 50s-style Les Paul, impressed at the price. But I guess I was a little wary of the "rounded neck profile" (I have small hands). That's what kept me from ordering one. Fortunately my local GC had one on display. The gold top model--caught my eye imediately. The second I had it in my hands, I had my answer about that neck. This guitar feels perfect. I honestly can't tell a difference between this and any other LP's I've tried. For the money, this is a great guitar, and a true Gibson Les Paul. It came set up perfectly, including spot-on intonation. The only flaw is fret edges that are not silky smooth the way I like. They're not bad but could be better. But this is a Studio model, after all: you're saving a lot of money by not paying for binding and a high-gloss finish and all that. And the techie at my GC said he will dress the frets for me under warranty, so my sole complaint is solved. I love this guitar.
