The Gibson Les Paul 50s Tribute Left Handed Electric Guitar
provides all the best features of the 1950’s Les Paul’s that totally revolutionized music! A pair of screaming P-90 pickups yield the much beloved fat Gibson single-coil tone that have found their place in rock, country, blues and beyond. The comfortably rounded neck profile is accurate to those early instruments and is preferred by many because of its increased sustain and full sound.

Just like the greatest Les Paul Standards ever made, the lefty Gibson Les Paul ’50s Tribute starts with the classic tonewood combination of a mahogany body with solid carved maple top. When paired, these woods offer a tonal depth and complexity unmatched by any single-wood construction, with warmth and richness from the mahogany, and superb clarity and ‘snap’ from the maple. The mahogany back is strategically weight relieved to both lighten your load and improve resonance.
A solid mahogany neck is glued into the body in Gibson’s time-tested tradition, and carved to a comfortably rounded ‘50s profile. It is topped with a genuine rosewood fingerboard that carries 22 medium-jumbo frets and traditional trapezoid inlays. A PLEK-cut nut made from black Corian subtly complements the black top-hat knobs with silver inserts, while enhancing resonance and sustain.
The left handed Gibson Les Paul ’50s Tribute takes its firepower from a pair of P-90 pickups, some of the most revered tone machines in Gibson history. The P-90s include genuine Alnico V bar magnets and coils wound with 42-AWG enamel-coated wire for all the growl, snarl, and articulation that has made the originals legendary. The traditional wiring complement of an independent volume and tone control per pickup plus a three-way toggle selector switch allows a broad range of sonic variations.
Hardware Gibson gives the Les Paul ‘50s Tribute guitar a Tune-o-Matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, with a set of genuine Grover kidney button tuners, a hardware set that partners up for solid sustain and precision tuning. Put it all together, and the Les Paul ’50s Tribute presents the perfect celebration of Les Paul’s genius and achievement, wrapping it into a great guitar that brings the look, feel, and sound of the first generation of Les Pauls to the hands of players of today.
