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.

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.
