This Gibson Les Paul Studio Premium Plus, adds the amazing PowerTune system to the durability and superb performance of the time-tested Les Paul Studio electric guitar. With a shimmering AAA flamed maple top and gold hardware, this Les Paul Premium is a true beauty for the working guitarist. Traditional mahogany body and set '59 Les Paul rounded mahogany neck generate great resonance for extended sustain from the 490R and 498T alnico magnet humbucker pickups.
With the PowerTune System„¢, Gibson brings a real innovation to the Les Paul Guitar design. PowerTune promises to banish, once and for all, the tuning problems guitarists and bass players often have. The system consists of 3 components that can automatically tune all strings according to prescribed settings in less than 5 seconds. Major modification of the instrument is no longer required. A control knob that enables the tuning to be programmed replaces the volume control. The player can choose from normal tuning patterns right up to the most diverse range of open tunings. The programmed instructions are implemented by tuners equipped with tiny electric motors. As the motorized tuners adjust the tuning, the pitch of the string is monitored by means of the tune-control bridge. Electrical power for the tuning mechanism is supplied via the guitar strings.
Gibson is proud to announce that it has reached an agreement with Tronical Gmbh of Hamburg, Germany for the exclusive worldwide sale and distribution of Tronical's revolutionary PowerTune System„¢. in both new guitars and upgrade kits.
With Tronical's PowerTune System, a guitar can tune itself precisely and automatically within seconds. It stores personal tuning preferences and makes them available for easy implementation at the push of a button.
