Long Live The '70s!The Gibson Les Paul '70s Tribute solidbody electric guitar pays homage to that musically fertile decade while giving you incredible playability and comfort, along with the fat, snarling tone that put the 'Paul on the map with guitar greats worldwide. The 1970s were a great time for music, and the LP was at the epicenter. The 2013 Les Paul '70s Tribute gives you Gibson's classic tonewood combo - with weight relief, so you can rock all night, while a pair of Dirty Fingers humbuckers serve up mountains of tone and sustain. Play a classic: the Gibson Les Paul '70s Tribute.
Gibson Les Paul '70s Tribute Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
The Les Paul recipe for sustain - mahogany body with maple top
Gibson's Les Paul '70s Tribute gives you the robust sustain you need for hot liquid solos and massive power chords. What's Gibson's secret? A major part of the Les Paul's tonewood recipe is the fusion of a maple top on a mahogany body. This combination is largely responsible for the legendary Les Paul sound - as well the LP's reputation for being rather heavy. But fear not! Gibson's traditional weight relief has been scientifically applied to this 'Paul - giving you all the sustain, without the pain. Now you can play marathon gigs without next-day visits to the chiropractor. The Gibson Les Paul '70s Tribute - it's what rock dreams are made of.
Dirty Fingers humbuckers onboard for serious tone
This Gibson Les Paul '70s Tribute is fitted with a pair of Gibson's Dirty Fingers humbuckers. One of Gibson'e hottest pickups, Dirty Fingers 'buckers spit out equal extremes of muscle and musicality. Along with massive, bold sound and incredible power, this ceramic-magnet pickup serves up amazing clarity for a design of its type, giving you a fast track to major-league distortion for soaring leads and crunching rhythm work. Unlike most Gibson humbuckers, Dirty Fingers incorporates adjustable steel pole pieces on both coils.
'70s profile neck for uber-playability
The Gibson Les Paul '70s Tribute sports a comfortable, fast-action neck with a '70s profile, complete with a period-correct volute. Early Les Paul guitars had huge "tree-trunk" necks, but beginning in 1959, the company began slimming the neck down to a more comfortable size. By 1960, this evolved into a design Gibson called the Slim Taper neck. Necks stayed thin in the '70, with Gibson adding a volute at the base of the headstock to enhance strength and stability. These slender necks promoted playing speed while reducing player fatigue, and have proved to be some of the most popular Les Paul necks ever made. Whether you're chording down low or riffing up high, the Les Paul '70s Tribute's neck - with its rosewood fingerboard and classic trapezoid inlays - always feels just right!

Overall: I have owned several Les Pauls over the years, and while some of them are better overall, the price is what makes this one a winner. The Dirty Fingers pickups alone are worth it. Gibson quality seems to have improved lately. close [-]
