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 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 have 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 and 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 sports 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 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.

Sensational Instrument! When I'm too worn out to play it, it's great to look at on the stand. Mine is Plek'd, happy I ordered it that way.

Awesome Guitar

This it's my first Les Paul and I now wonder why I waited so long to get one. I tried this guitar in a store along with a$1500 and $2000 Gibson. This guitar actually felt more comfortable than the Gibson's. This having the maple top and Gibson '57 classic pickups, it sounds great. After playing this guitar almost daily for two and a half weeks, the only problem I have with it is that the G string does not stay in tune. Hopefully a set of ELIXIR Nanoweb strings will solve this problem. Overall, I do not regret getting this guitar.

Impressed

I had never bought anything from Sweetwater before this guitar. I was impressed with the personalization of service provided. I received a call within 1 hour of placing my order to confirm deliver location and ensure order details. I received this grad within 2 days and I had ordered it on a holiday. Awesome experience!

B-E-A-utiful!

First off, shout out to Cliff Hackleman. Had my eyes on this beauty for a few months before purchasing and I finally bit the bullet. Originally ordered the Black Cherry as this one was showing out of stock at the time of purchase. Long story short there was one available. Cliff called me at 9 AM the next morning to tell me he had the Midnight Sapphire ready to go with Next Day shipping (no extra charge) an return slip for the Black Cherry. I was blown away. I had heard nothing but great things about Sweetwater and I can now confidently say they are truly amazing at what they do. Having a great experience purchasing it felt as if the guitar itself was just an added bonus through the. The finish on this thing is stunning! Pictures could never compare. As many others have stated this is a Gibson minus the price-tag. With a blind fold on you wouldn't be able to tell the difference. The attention to detail it flawless. If you are thinking about getting one, stop thinking and BUY! You will not be disappointed.
