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.

Sweet, Blue Guitar
by James Reeves from Claude, TXI am satisfied with my purchase of this guitar. I was going to get the Black Cherry version, but my wife picked out this one. I later saw a Black Cherry Model in one of the local stores, and I am gl... read more [+]ad to say the Midnite Sapphire looks better. My wife has good taste! Now, on to performance. This guitar plays well, and there is not much difference between this guitar and several Gibsons I have played. One difference that stands out is the potentiometers. The knobs are crooked on my guitar, but the pots work like they should. I have been told the pots are the weak part of this guitar, but they are easily changed. The strings are cheap, and I played them dead in three days. I guess that's the same for nearly all of the inexpensive, Chinese made guitars. The 57 Gibson Humbuckers are for real! The sustain on this is just like the Gibsons. The tuners are locking Grovers. The tone I get from this guitar is very sweet. It is a heavy guitar, but I ordered a padded, 3 1/2" strap when I ordered the guitar. I reviewed the strap earlier.

For the money, this is a fantastic guitar! If money is not a consideration, then this is still a guitar that I recommend you take into consideration. Like one of the other folks that reviewed this said, "It's a Gibson without the Gibson name on the headstock", and it is "As close to a Gibson as you can get without paying thousands of dollars."
I recommend this guitar without reservations. I know I mentioned the pots being cheap, but most of use wind up changing pots, or P/U's, or bridges/saddles no matter which brand of guitar we buy. You will not regret this purchase. close [-]

You get great pickups, grover locking tuners, strap locks, a hard shell case, a hard maple cap with a fancy flame veneer, and just about everything you could ask for, minus the Gibson logo.
The guitars look amazing in person, the photos don't do them justice. They feel great to play with the slim taper neck, and have real quality features, including the switchcraft switch, etc. Every detail is right in that respect.
The only issue is Epiphone's quality control. There were a few minor things like a loose strap button, stripped screw holes on the truss rod cover, a ding in the filler around the inlays, and some other minor things, but I had those taken care of by a Gibson repair center under warranty.
If the quality control was a little better, I'd give it five stars. Would I buy another, or recommend one to a friend? YES. It's the best you can get for this little money. You really are getting a Gibson without the logo on the headstock. close [-]
