The Gibson Les Paul '50s Tribute Min-ETune solidbody electric guitar pays homage to that formative decade, while giving you the powerful convenience of Gibson's innovative Min-ETune auto-tuning system. The 2013 Les Paul '50s Tribute Min-ETune gives you the classic LP tonewood combo - a mahogany body topped with a maple top, but this axe sports Gibson's traditional weight relief, so you can rock all night in comfort. And playability is top-notch: wrap your hand around the chunky '50s profile neck and you'll feel instantly at home. Play a classic: the Gibson Les Paul '50s Tribute Min-ETune.

Gibson Les Paul '50s Tribute Min-ETune Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Tune faster and more accurately with the Min-ETune auto tuning system
  • Legendary P-90 single-coils onboard for sweet vintage tones
  • That chunky '50s-style neck may be what you've been searching for
Tune faster and more accurately with the Min-ETune auto tuning system

You'll find Gibson's innovative Min-ETune automatic tuning system on the Les Paul '50s Tribute Min-ETune, which gives you ultra-precise tuning with just one strum on your strings. You've got instant access to 12 factory-preset tunings, with six additional slots to save your own favorite alternate tunings. The Min-ETune system uses a long-lasting lithium ion battery that gives you 80-100 tunings on a single charge. And because the Min-ETune system boasts 40:1 ratio tuners, the tuning accuracy on the Les Paul '50s Tribute Min-ETune is second to none.

Legendary P-90 single-coils onboard for sweet vintage tones

The Gibson Les Paul '50s Tribute Min-ETune sports a pair of P-90 Soapbar pickups. Gibson's first successful single-coil pickup, the P-90 can be heard on countless classic recordings. With its biting treble and high output, the P-90 cleans up nicely when you roll back your guitar's volume pot. And when you hit your amp hard, the P-90 really wails. It's an amazingly versatile pickup (more so, arguably, than most humbuckers). Check out The Who's Live at Leeds to hear Pete Townsend coax a jaw-dropping range of tone out of his P-90 equipped axe.

That chunky '50s-style neck may be what you've been searching for

The first Les Pauls had huge necks, but by 1960 the neck underwent several modifications until it became what's known as the slim-taper design, which clearly is for wimps, right? If you're going to play a Les Paul, you want something you can actually grab onto. The neck carve on the Gibson Les Paul '50s Tribute Min-ETune isn't quite as chunky as some of the originals, but it's fatter - and considerably more satisfying - than the '60s slim-taper design. But it still has that warm, classic Les Paul feel, allowing easy access to the upper frets so you can really dig into your solos!
