Gibson USA - Les Paul Future Tribute
Starting at: $999
Gibson USA is celebrating 2013 as the <i>Year of Les Paul</i>, and is blowing it up big with a new series of decade-dedicated Tribute Les Pauls, each of which honors the artistry and innovation of inventor and guitarist Les Paul by capturing the essence of a great Les Paul guitar from one of four different eras. All embody the full magic of this legendary guitar design, but are stripped down for improved value and no-nonsense performance. The Les Paul Future Tribute captures the look, feel, and tone of the guitar world’s most legendary single-cutaway solidbody, and equips it for the player of the future—making it available today. Primed for optimum playability and versatility, the Les Paul Future Tribute carries a pair of “zebra-coil” ’57 Classic™ humbucking pickups for a blend of vintage warmth and contemporary articulation, along with a superbly comfortable custom asymmetrical neck profile. Gibson’s acclaimed bridge and tailpiece team up with futuristic Steinberger™ gearless tuners to ensure smooth playability and precise tuning and intonation. And, like all Les Paul and SG 2013 Tribute Series guitars, the Les Paul Future Tribute is available upgraded with Min-ETune™ automated “Robot” tuners for a nominal upcharge. The Les Paul Future Tribute looks great in your choice of Vintage Sunburst, Wine Red, Ebony Black, or Goldtop finish, all in Vintage Gloss nitro-cellulose lacquer.
