Doug Aldrich Demos The Les Paul Tribute


collapse expand iconDescription

Gibson's Les Paul Tribute brings you all the vibe and feel of a traditional Les Paul, in an Ultra Modern weight-relieved mahogany body. The Les Paul Tribute captures the essence of a classic while catering to contemporary players. An easy-to-play rounded profile on a set-in maple neck with rosewood fretboard adds a hint of brightness, and the Alnico II 490 humbuckers deliver loads of power and sustain for those signature Les Paul tones.

Ultra Modern Weight-Relieved Mahogany Body Resonates

The Les Paul Tribute's chambered mahogany body provides enhanced resonance while reducing weight, ideal for long sets and studio sessions. Three sharp-looking soundholes let it breathe as you play, aiding in the rich vibration you can both hear and feel.

Maple and Rosewood Neck Inspires

A smooth maple neck and rosewood fretboard come together for a blend of crispness and warmth that plays fast and sounds full. The slim, rounded profile and medium-jumbo frets make solos and complex chords a breeze.

490 Humbuckers Power Classic Tone

A pair of 490 humbucking pickups with Alnico II magnets deliver vintage PAF tone, power and sustain. A 3-way switch, plus two volume and two tone knobs help you adjust your sound to exactly the way you like it.

Legendary Hardware Anchors

A Nashville Tune-O-Matic bridge and stop tailpiece anchor your tone and tuning, while vintage-style tuners keep things locked in. Plek'd frets result in an even, buzz-free feel along the fretboard.
