The Les Paul Tribute captures the vibe, feel and tonality of a traditional Les Paul and is available in four classic finishes. A rounded maple neck profile and ultra-modern weight relief make the Gibson Les Paul Studio Tribute a pleasure to play. A mahogany body, maple top and pair of 490 R & T humbucking pickups with Alnico II magnets provide classic tone, power and sustain.
Ultra-Modern Weight Relief
The latest advancement in maintaining tone with weight relief
Ultra-Modern Weight Relief was developed through a slight yet carefully calculated offsetting of the chambers around the perimeters of the guitar's body to further lighten the load, without degradation in tone. It’s engineered to provide a solid core through the center of the guitar to retain the classic Les Paul sound. Unlike a full chambered design it is less prone to feedback or affecting the tonality and resonance of the guitar.
