The 1960s Tribute Left-Handed electric guitar consists of a basic Gibson Les Paul chassis with all the essential elements needed to rock including a Nashville Tune-O-Matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece and Kluson-style tuners keep it all rock-solid and resonant and its gnarly P-90 tone stays true to the Les Paul style.
A solid, carved maple top and chambered mahogany body give the Les Paul Studio '60s Tribute the same tonewood combination that has been helping Les Pauls rock for nearly 60 years. Authentic vintage-style finishes present a guitar with the look of a well played original, while the instrument's unbound body and neck keep it in line with the popular Les Paul Studio line.
The headstock of the Gibson Les Paul Studio 1960s Tribute is equipped with Grover Kluson style green keys. With a gear ratio of 14:1, these tuners deliver precision tuning in a durable housing that provides maximum protection for the gear and string post. The Gibson Les Paul's Tune-O-Matic bridge, sets a standard for simplicity and functionality that has never been bettered. The Tune-O-Matic provides a firm seating for the strings, allowing the player to adjust and fine-tune the intonation and string height in a matter of minutes.
Both the neck and bridge position pickups are equipped with cream-colored screaming single-coil P-90 pickups. The P-90 was the standard pickup on all Gibson guitars in the late 1940s and into the 1950s and because of its crisp, bright tone it has experienced resurgence in popularity with many of today's modern rockers. These classic Gibson guitar pickups deliver sizzling, slightly gritty midrange roar. You'll find that the P-90s' high output and biting treble has more nuanced harmonic coloring than the typical single-coil pickup.

Comments about Gibson Limited Run Les Paul Studio '60s Tribute Left-Handed Electric Guitar:
I was very lucky to get my hands on a discounted "blemished" one that was returned. I was obviously a bit nervous to order it having never seen it in person. When it arrived it was as beautiful as I could have imagined, and had nothing wrong with it. There is a slight color difference on the trim, but if that was what saved me $$$ then I'm fine with it. The thing is fantastic. It plays very smoothly, has great tonal range, and the P-90's (which I initially wasn't excited about) actually have great sound to them and pack a punch. This guitar lacks nothing and has all the great qualities of Les Paul's twice the price. Sometimes I just stare at it on its stand, happy that it's actually mine. I am very pleased with the guitar and would recommend it to anyone in the market.
