What a Beautiful Guitar

By John

from Allentown, PA

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Tribute T 2017 Electric Guitar:

The '17 LP Tribute T is an amazing guitar, priced at an exceptional value. A USA made Gibson for under $1000. Right out of the box this guitar came ready to play. Action is nice and the intonation is spot on. The 490R and 490T pick-ups are super responsive and growl like a bear, giving the player that sought-after vintage Gibson tone. I am playing through a Vox ac15c1 and the guitar/amp combo is simply art in auditory form. Muddy when it needs to be, but still reproducing a nice undistorted clear tone. As far as the craftsmanship, I cannot find one flaw on this guitar. The iconic Gold Top finish, while done in matte instead of high gloss, is perfect. Though the fret board is unbound, the sides are smooth (no getting caught on frets) and the neck is fast. 9 hole weight-relief is comfortable, yet not obnoxiously light. The sustain is amazing. What I really love about this '17 model compared to the '16 model is the natural mahogany finish on the back and neck. The '16 has black back and neck, which to me, just didn't do justice to that Gold Top. My only immediate modification was changing the strings to .10-.52's, but that's just personal choice. This is an out-of-the-box, play as-is guitar for those musicians looking for that classic Gibson tone, look, and feel. Well done, Gibson!

A nice personal touch with the '17 Gibson models is the picture they include of your actual guitar on the bench during set up. Nothing earth-shattering, but indicative of the return to attention to detail Gibson has undertaken after what many people said was a departure from that over the years, with suspect craftsmanship and quality control. I couldn't be happier with this guitar.

AMAZING for the price.

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Tribute T 2017 Electric Guitar:

I was a little worried at first, seeing as this is an "entry" level Gibson. But after playing it for a few hours, I am just as pleased as a cat with a watermelon. It bends great. The sustain is more than impressive. And the pickups make note phrasings sparkle. Even the gig bag they shipped it in was high quality.

      Comments about Gibson Les Paul Tribute T 2017 Electric Guitar:

      I am an intermediate player and have always wanted a Les Paul but could just not justify the expense. This is the perfect guitar for me. Less than a kilobuck but still the quality of real Les Paul. Tone, action, and sustain are wonderful, much better than my Strat. I wake up wanting to play this guitar. Perhaps as my skills continue to improve, I will need something else, but for my current level, this is the perfect guitar.

      Comments about Gibson Les Paul Tribute T 2017 Electric Guitar:

      I love mine. Of course it's a great looking guitar. But what stands out to me is the feel of the instrument and the quality of tone I get from it. The satin finish combined with a slim taper neck fits my hand perfectly and feels like a guitar I have played for years. The tones go from dark to sweet to piercingly bright. Something unique about the volume pots is that they clean up faster than my other guitars. That is, if I have a little dirt tuned in on my amp with my volume knobs on 10, I can get a loud clean tone at 8. I've played fake foreign made LP's "Lotus & LTD" since I was twelve. This is my first Gibson and my first American made guitar. Let me tell you, there is a difference.

      Comments about Gibson Les Paul Tribute T 2017 Electric Guitar:

      I bought this Les Paul after swearing off Gibson guitars a long time ago but, this Les Paul has a great price and it sounds excellent. I am very happy with it and can't believe how well set up it was out of the box. Nice gig bag, too. I haven't had to do anything to it except polish the neck and it's smooth and fast. The slim taper neck is perfect and being that it was Plek'd, makes it even better to play. I highly recommend this Les Paul.

        Comments about Gibson Les Paul Tribute T 2017 Electric Guitar:

        I am a life long acoustic player (Taylor 414ce that I LOVE) and recently bought a Boss BR-800 Recorder to mess around with. I quickly realized I wanted to plug into this thing with an electric so I started shopping around.
        Being new to electric guitars means being a complete ignoramus to pickups, different woods, semi hollow, hollow, solid, etc. I certainly was aware of Gibson and recently toured the Memphis factory (very cool if you get a chance) so have been well aware of the reputation, especially the Les Paul. So I bought a D'Angelico Semi-Hollow body. I know... I was really only looking to spend around 700 dollars for a guitar. Got a good deal during the holiday sales so I went for it. Not a bad guitar but just didn't have the tone or the sustain I was looking for. My brother has been bringing his LP over to jam and record and it just dominated my D'Angelico.
        Long story long, I returned the D'Angelico and spent about 2.5 hours playing everything from Epiphone, to Stratocastor (cheaper foreign version) that was under 800 bucks. After much disappointment I finally decided to give this one a try even though it was 100 more than I wanted to spend. Within a few minutes I decided to pull the trigger. One day in and I already LOVE it. Feels and plays like a much more expensive guitar. The finish isn't as fancy as the big brothers but the cost savings is tremendous and it's sweet in its own right (I bought the honeyburst).
        I would highly recommend going to GC and sitting in front of an amp with one these. Odds are you will feel what everyone else does when they pick this guitar up.

          Comments about Gibson Les Paul Tribute T 2017 Electric Guitar:

          I've been a huge fan of Les Pauls since I got an Epiphone a few years ago. This years LP tributes seemed like a good value, and in many ways they are. It looks, feels, and sounds like it should. I got the gold top and it looks excellent. The weight-reduction techniques used throughout the body really make a difference in relief without sacrificing sustain or tone. The neck is very comfortable - I have incredibly average sized hands and find it to be very, very nice. Stays in tune, easy to adjust action and intonation, and the hardware feels rugged. The only downsides for me are that there isn't a coil tap or split option. Not a huge deal because then the tone controls feel loose and cheap, but it is a nice option to have. The other slight concern I have will be how well this guitar stands up to use over time. If you were to compare it to a higher price Gibson or even some of the higher end Epis, you may get the feeling that this guitar was plucked off the factory line because it was given it's final coats of paint. It doesn't feel lacking really, but I almost get a sense that it's also not quite done yet. Like a cake that's good enough to eat, but could use a few more minutes in the oven. It's a tough thing to describe. I would absolutely recommend this guitar still, but manage your expectations. The satin finish does make for a smooth, fast neck and body, but it may take some getting used to if you are familiar with dense laquer finish.

              This guitar came of out of the box in perfect shape. Once I change the strings and adjust the action, it will be good to go. Finish on this thing is amazing! Love the natural back much more than the black version in previous years.
