This Les Paul Will Exceed Your Expectations

The Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus solidbody electric guitar honors the years Les Paul spent with Epiphone in the late '30s and early '40s. The 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.

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, depth, 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.

Premium components

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 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 options than you'd expect. The '57 Classic humbuckers use 4-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.

Sweetwater rocks

I purchased this beauty and all the reviews have been spot on , I must say the first one sent to me suffered a cracked neck somewhere between sweetwater and my living room , but a call to my rep Bowen and problem solved they overnighted me a new one and this one is flawless , sounds beautiful was a breeze to tune , I have a hard time putting it down but when I do all I can do is stare at it , worth every penny thanks sweetwater.

This Epiphone ROCKS!

If you are on the fence about this one, do yourself a favor and get it, you won't regret it. Feels great, sounds great, looks great, just a great guitar. Clean tones are amazing. Overdrive is smooth and sustain is one of the best I have heard. Neck is extremely comfortable. Not much else I can say about this thing other than it is a great bargain and rivals any other high dollar guitar I have.

nice guitar needs a real player

Very good guitar makes me play better than I have ever played. IT is that good. I play through a fender excelsior tube amp with 15 inche speaker and tremelo. I do fifties and early sixties songs. Sometimes I try my hand at jazz and blues. Again the guitar takes me for the ride to jazzland and blues heaven where the music just flows and the sounds are magic.
