They got it right first time around. Gibson P90s have existed since the 1940s, and they’re still a favourite amongst guitar players today. Known for their warm, twangy tone and beautiful clarity, they sound absolutely stunning. The rhythm P90 in the bridge position brings out the crispness of all your notes, adding a touch of brightness and coaxing out some high frequency bite for that unmistakable vintage sound. Chords will jump out, and your licks will shine with a presence of their own.
You'll love the neck P90. It turns your notes into seductively smooth licks. When you switch to it, you'll gain access to a treasure trove of radiant lead tones which glimmer with beauty. Whether you're bending strings or sliding up and down the fretboard, everything will ring out with singing sustain. These pickups help to bring out the best in the Les Paul Special Tribute's tone, and will take your ears on an adventure.
Break down barriers. Some guitar necks give your thumb too much resistance – this one is different. Having a satin finish, your thumb will gladly slide along without trouble, giving you easy access to each and every fret. Made from maple, it's naturally dense and smooth, with a bright resonance which rounds off the warm tone. Playing it will feel like a breath of fresh air, and you'll be free to play your way.
You'll also find the fretboard to be flawless. Crafted from rosewood, it has that beautiful, smooth feel which your fingers will love. Its warm resonance also complements the warmth of the P90s incredibly well, and boosts the sustain of your notes for a pristine tone. The double cutaway shape also helps you reach the upper frets easily, whilst making the guitar feel incredibly balanced. Combined, these features will bring you a level of playing satisfaction like no other.

Complementing this are vintage deluxe tuners, which help keep your tuning steady whilst adding to the pristine visuals of this guitar. A black pickguard also protects the striking finish without fail. With quality sound, playability, and looks, this Gibson is the real deal.
