Gibson USA`s 2016 range is divided into two groups, Traditional (historically-oriented features and details) and High Performance (made for modern-oriented players). Traditional models, generally, cost a little less and have that classic Gibson vibe. Les Paul `50s Tribute 2016T costs $899 and brings the classic construction features such as late `50s body and neck contours, green key tuners, sweet-sounding pickups and a selection of vintage LP color options.
Traditionally shaped LP body of this `50s Tribute beauty features low density mahogany with modern weight relief in the back and classic maple cap on top (transparent finishes feature flamed maple tops). All four color options come with white plastics and chrome-plated hardware; no binding around the body and neck. One-piece mahogany neck features `59 neck heel and profile, and is topped with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard (also made of a single piece of wood). Medium jumbo frets, acrylic trapezoid inlays, 12" radius and 1.695" TekToid nut make up a vintage-modern fingerboard.
Gibson`s battle-hardened 490R and 498T make a return in 2016, bringing all the vintage `50s goodness - beefy low end, creamy leads and crystal clear mids. Standard set of knobs and switches completes the electronics unit. Green key Grover tuners and two-piece tune-o-matic/stoptail bar bridge conclude the list of major features.
All in all, Les Paul `50s Tribute 2016T is the cheapest way to get genuine `50s feel and tone with Gibson badge. Perfect for LP enthusiasts with a tight budget.
