Product Description

The Gibson 1950s Les Paul Studio Tribute Humbucker Electric Guitar is a beautiful tribute to what made the 1950s models so great. It features a perfect marriage of the stripped down charm of the Studio series and all that was great about the 1950s models. This tribute guitar captures the same popular look and feel of the era but features updated PAF-style humbucking pickups that hit the Les Paul model later that decade.

Gibson 1950s Les Paul Studio Tribute Humbucker Electric Guitar Features

  • Mahogany body with carved Maple top
  • Comfortable Studio 50s rounded neck profile
  • Powerful 490R Alnico II
  • 498T Alnico V humbucking pickups in the neck and bridge
  • Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece
  • Vintage Kluson-style tuners with green tulip keys
The Gibson 1950s Les Paul Studio Tribute Humbucker Electric Guitar has a solid, carved maple top and chambered mahogany body that gives it the same tonewood combination that has been familiar to Les Paul fans for the last 60 years. The 490R in the neck position is made with Alnico II magnet and wound to the same specs of the original PAF humbuckers giving it smooth tones and note definition. It also features the iconic design that's sonically enhanced by the inclusion of a baked maple fingerboard delivering sonic and tactile characteristics of ebony with a traditional and warm brown finish.

Outstanding Value in a Les Paul
General
Your general opinion of this product.
Incredible value for a "real" Les Paul. Guitar was ready to play with perfect (for me) action and spot-on intonation from the factory. Love the feel of playing and the tone of a Les Paul. There's just SOMETHING about the geometry of a Gibson Les Paul's design that feels perfect to me. A previous Studio that I once owned left me seriously wanting another despite having a couple of really nice Agile Les Paul copies. They play and sound great, but the differences of the feel of the actual Gibson neck angles and string tension are just like magic to me. Just love these guitars and this Studio '50s Tribute Humbucker is a great financial deal, though I would have loved to have been able to afford a Standard. Great looks, tone and playability for as little money as you can get a carved top Gibson Les Paul. Thanks to Gibson!
