The Les Paul ‘50s Tribute 2016 HP has a traditional mahogany body with a maple top with a grain textured satin finish, a mahogany neck with a rounded ‘50s profile, 22-fret rosewood fingerboard, and a 490R neck humbucker and 498T bridge humbucker to harness the resonant power of this time-tested selection of tonewoods. The HP version adds signature features, including a new and exclusive fast-access heel developed specifically for Gibson USA’s High Performance lineup to allow unparalleled access to the high notes; combined with a slim taper neck profile and new soloist neck width, the result is the fastest playing Les Paul ever made. Titanium metal for the saddles and the adjustable zero-fret nut delivers a bright, crisp tone, while being virtually indestructible and ensuring total, personalized control over the action.
A comfortably rounded ’50s neck profile feels outstanding paired with Gibson USA’s new soloist neck width and a fast-access heel for outstanding upper-fret reach. An adjustable zero-fret titanium nut yields the fastest action you’ve ever experienced, completing the perfect marriage of vintage vibe and modern performance.
The 2016 Les Paul ’50s Tribute HP is founded in the hallowed combination of mahogany and maple for ’50s-certified Les Paul tones, translated via a 490R and hotter 498T pickup made with Alnico magnets like the original PAF humbuckers for that legendary power, articulation and dynamics. The guitar’s titanium zero-fret nut and titanium saddles take its clarity and sustain right over the top.
A thicker one-piece fingerboard with hand-rubbed oil finish, G-Force tuners tuners, genuine mother-of-pearl inlays, improved knobs and plastics, and an exclusive labor-intensive hand-applied process for a tactile satin nitrocellulose finish all add up to superior quality for optimum looks, feel and tone.
