Vintage Style Appearance

The Gibson Les Paul Tribute T Electric Guitar, is the perfect guitar for the player who is looking for authentic Gibson tones with the best of what modern craftsmanship has to offer. Boasting a stunning satin gold top finish, this guitar is equipped with classic Les Paul appointments including gold top hat control knobs, vintage style keystone tuners, nickel hardware, along with a traditional white pickguard.

Lightweight Body with 9 Hole Weight Relief

Crafted with a mahogany body, and topped in A Grade Plane maple, the Gibson Les Paul Tribute T Electric Guitar features an ultra-modern weight relief chambered body for comfort and enhanced resonance. This weight-relief process involves routing nine round holes in the mahogany body before the stunning maple top is attached. These holes are strategically placed in the lower bouts on the bass-side of the guitar, offering you a comfortable-lightweight guitar that can be played all night long.

Slim Taper Neck

Not only does the Gibson Les Paul Tribute T Electric Guitar offer a comfortable lightweight body, but also provides a slim tapered neck profile. This mahogany neck offers the ultimate comfort with its slim profile, and allows for fast and comfortable soloing. As well as providing fluid hand flexibility, the mahogany neck is fused to the mahogany body using a mortise an tenon joint, and a provides a traditional neck heel and the ultimate resonance.

Humbuckers

Incorporating a set of 490R and 490T humbucking pickups designed to recreate the tone of the classic Gibson PAF pickups, the Gibson Les Paul Tribute T Electric Guitar produces a rich vintage tone that can be used in many different types of music. Both pickups deliver a moderately high output, and also add to the sustain and resonance of the lightweight mahogany body. Controlling these pickups is easy, with the classic gold top-hat control knobs of volume and tone, along with a toggle switch.

TekToid Nut

Gibson has begun using TekToid graphite nuts on all of the guitars they build, as it offers increased harmonics in the middle and upper frequency range perfect for a rich and detailed tone. TekToid Graphite is the best high-tech cure for eliminating undesirable friction within the nut, which can cause tuning problems. It is the ideal choice for a guitar nut, as it has excellent conductive qualities, which overall benefit a guitar’s tone and sustain.

Aluminium Tune-O-Matic Bridge

The Gibson Les Paul Tribute T Electric Guitar, features a Tune-O-Matic bridge, which is an extremely popular fixed bridge type due to its stability, reliability, comfortable playing position and impressive sustain. Additionally adjusting the string action and intonation is extremely simple with a tune-o-matic bridge. Simply adjust the height of the bridge with the mounting rods to alter the action and screw in or out the bridge saddles to achieve perfect intonation.
