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.

This Gibson '57 Classic pickup-equipped Epiphone Les Paul is too good to limit myself to just one
by Mark L from Grayson, GAA month has passed since I bought an Epiphone Les Paul 1960 Tribute Plus in Faded Cherry Sunburst. I love all of my 3 Epiphone Les Pauls as each has its own characteristic and distinctive tone and qua... read more [+]lity. But the Gibson '57 Classic pickup-equipped 1960 Tribute Les Paul gives me the most pleasing tone. And each day I ask myself how Epiphone is able to put a lot of Gibson Les Paul goodness into this model for so little. It is so good to limit myself to just one. So, I bought me another color of this soon-to-be classic model - a Vintage Sunburst. My only complaint is it did not come with a pickguard. So, I emailed Gibson Warranty Department to consider including its pickguard (uninstalled) as part of the package. Also, I asked them if they can make this value-packed Les Paul be available in other finish (ie, Quilt, Birdseye, Koa, etc.) and other 'burst' colors (ie, Tea Burst, Desert Burst, etc.). I will pre-order them as soon as they are announced. By the way, Dave Brow, my awesome Sweetwater Sales Engineer was able to get me an original Epiphone pickguard, for a lot less than what you would normally pay for an after-market replacement. Thanks, Dave! close [-]

The Gibson PUP's sound amazing. Very nice clean channel tone and awesome crunch when you need it. This guitar will not disappoint. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a good quality guitar without the massive price. close [-]
Absolutely fantastic guitar!
by Dave from Jackson, Mi.I have been playing guitar for 20 years and I have played all kinds of guitars, from Gibsons to Fenders to Schecters and I have to say this is my favorite of them all. I play in a classic rock band an... read more [+]d my other guitar player, who plays a $2700 Gibson Les Paul, played this guitar for a set one night and liked it as much if not more than his guitar! The tone you get from this guitar is sweet! Great clean tones, vintage crunch tones, blazing leads, and then you can tap the coils and flip the toggle to the rhythm position and you get great bluesy SRV tones! This guitar has it all! Honestly, if you were to play this guitar and then play a Gibson LP while blindfolded you wouldn't know that this guitar costs $2K less than a similiar set up Gibson. You can't go wrong with this guitar. The finish was perfect and the guys at Sweetwater had it set up perfectly. i dont care who you are, beginner to seasoned musician, there is no doubt that you would love this guitar. Rock on!! close [-]
