Lefties rejoice! The Gibson Les Paul 60s Tribute Left Handed Guitar captures all the features that made 1960’s Les Paul so desirable. Gibson loads in a pair of BurstBucker 1 and 2 PAF-style humbuckers, the most revered pickup ever created, along with the fast, comfortable slim neck profile characteristic of the start of that decade. A Mahogany body with solid carved Maple top gives the lefty Les Paul 60s Tribute guitar that beefy tone we’ve all come to know and love!
Gibson Les Paul 60s Tribute Left Handed Guitar Features
- Mahogany body with solid carved maple top

Gibson crafts the Les Paul ’60s Tribute with a mahogany body and solid carved maple top. When paired together, 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, all of which translates beautifully to the guitar’s amplified sound. 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 fast, slim 60s 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 speed knobs and black pickup rings, while enhancing resonance and sustain. The traditional back-angled headstock is silkscreened with a gold Gibson logo and Les Paul Model.
The Les Paul ’60s Tribute takes its firepower from a pair of BurstBucker humbuckers; a BurstBucker 1 at the neck and a slightly hotter BurstBucker 2 at the bridge. The BurstBucker humbuckers are some the most accurate recreations of vintage PAF humbuckers available today. These great pickups adhere strictly to Seth Lover’s original formula, which includes a genuine Alnico II bar magnet in each pickup and slightly mismatched coils wound with 42-AWG enamel-coated wire for edge and bite.
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.
To anchor it all down, Gibson USA loads in 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 ’60s Tribute presents the perfect celebration of Les Paul’s genius and achievement, wrapping it all into a great guitar that brings the look, feel, and sound of the original humbucker-loaded Les Pauls to the hands of players of today.
