The Les Paul recipe for sustain - mahogany body with maple top

Gibson's Les Paul '60s Tribute Min-ETune 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 '60s Tribute Min-ETune - it's what rock dreams are made of.

BurstBuckers give you monumental tone and sustain

In 1958 the Les Paul got an "upgrade" to two humbucking pickups, which were designed by Gibson's Seth Lover and are widely called "PAFs" because early examples had "Patent Applied For" stickers on the underside. It wasn't until Eric Clapton plugged a Les Paul into a Marshall amp that the light went on in many players heads: humbuckers equal big, fat tone! The Gibson Les Paul '60s Tribute Min-ETune is equipped with two of the best humbucking pickups Gibson has ever produced: BurstBuckers. With a tight low-end, complex midrange and sweet treble, the sound is everything you'd ever want from a Les Paul.

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 '60s 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 favorites. 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 '60s Tribute Min-ETune is second to none.

Slim Taper neck for uber-playability

The Gibson Les Paul '60s Tribute Min-ETune sports a comfortable, fast-action neck with a '60s Slim Taper profile. 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. Varying in thickness only about a tenth of an inch from the first fret out to the twelfth and maintaining a precisely controlled width-to-thickness ratio, the Slim Taper neck promoted playing speed while reducing player fatigue. Many guitarists consider Gibson's Slim profile neck the most playable Les Paul neck ever made. Whether you're chording down low or riffing up high, the Les Paul '60s Tribute Min-ETune's neck - with its rosewood fingerboard and classic trapezoid inlays - always feels just right!
