This Les Paul Will Exceed Your ExpectationsThe Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus solidbody electric guitar honors the years Les Paul spent with Epiphone in the late '30s and early '40s. The LP Tribute Plus takes the classic design of the Les Paul into the modern era, with premium components not normally found on a guitar this affordable. The traditional mahogany body is capped with a carved hard maple top for exceptional note definition and clarity. And for classic Epiphone playability, the mahogany neck sports the 1960s SlimTaper "D" profile, regarded as the "just right" feel by many players. Factor in two Gibson USA '57 Classic humbucking pickups, and you've got an incredible performer at an amazing price with the Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus solidbody electric guitar.
Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
Exceptional craftsmanship at a great price
Epiphone takes affordable quality to the next level with the Les Paul Tribute Plus. The solid mahogany body is pure Les Paul tradition, but the carved hard Maple top is a feature normally found on more expensive models - and the combination creates tones with warmth and depth, with excellent clarity and definition. Another fine touch is the hand-fitted neck joint, that extends to the neck pickup cavity for maximum transfer of string energy - we're talking sustain for days, with a fast and lively response to your playing.
As you can already tell from the choice tonewoods used, the Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus packs premium components for a value-packed experience. On top of the quality wood and craftsmanship, the LP Tribute Plus packs two Gibson USA '57 Classic humbuckers - you read that right, Gibson USA pickups on an Epiphone! The '57 Classics are known for their wide tonal range and hot output, letting you go from smooth and clean to growling and mean. Plug into your favorite tube amplifier and get ready to conjure the essential tones for almost any musical style.
Push/pull tone controls
While the Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus packs the looks and feel of a classic Les Paul, the modern electronics give you more tonal optional than you'd expect. The '57 Classic humbuckers use four-conductor pickup wiring, giving you access to series/parallel pickup switching with the push/pull tone pots. This additional tone-shaping capability makes the Les Paul Tribute Plus an incredibly versatile performer.

by A. Johnson from SC USAThis guitar is amazing. The construction is solid, the pickups sound great, and the black cherry finish is beautiful. I tried a few other Epiphone models, including the Ultra III. But none of them ... read more [+]came close to sounding like the Tribute Plus.. especially in areas such as sustain.

Beautiful & Amazing
by Bill from Nashville TNI received my Black Cherry LP last week and can say this is the most amazing guitar I've ever had. All my fav guitarist play Strats and I have a Strat as well but this LP w/ the '57 Classic pups with ... read more [+]coil tapping is the most universal guitar available today. The pups are bell chiming clean and dirty & nasty with the flip of a switch. Sweetwaters HD pictures are superior but you will marvel at the beauty of the flamed maple top and craftsmanship of this guitar when you wrap your hands around it. If you are undecided about this guitar - don't be. It is truly a work of art. close [-]

Excellent guitar from top to bottom and inside and out!

Do the research and you'll find that Epiphone is a whole different company than it was just a few years ago. You'll find that Gibson opened the Epiphone only plant a few years back and that two long time U.S. Gibson employees are running the show over there.
The Tribute series has got to be one of their crowning achievements. I've owned a Gibson Les Paul Standard Premium Plus and you know what? This guitar is at least 90% as good as that guitar. Now, think about that price difference! In some ways, I like this Epi even better. This guitar actually stays in tune (Gasp!) and I don't have to screw the toggle switch and input jack back in every week like my old Gibson.
Bottom line: This guitar stays in tune, has wonderful tone and is equipped with some quality USA hardware. Plus, the flame is out of this world. If you're in the market for an LP and don't have $2600 laying around or want to settle for a $900 Gibson LP that looks and feels like something I could have made in woodshop back in High School....Go for this guitar.
BTW. This guitar is begging to be played through a decent valve amp....Don't let it down! :-) close [-]

Epi LP Tribute Plus
by Wayne Wagner from Douglas, WYThe one I bought here at Sweetwater arrived promptly and was well packed. The fit and finish is superb. Setup is spot on. Action is low with no buzzes of fretting out. The hardware is good quality and... read more [+] the Gibson USA pickups sound great. I would say that the overall quality of this guitar is neck and neck with Gibson USA. This model is a real deal for the money as it comes with a really nice case too! I would recommend this LP to anyone looking for a nice one without having to spend 2K+. close [-]
