Fantastic Les Paul, very lightweight and resonant, it has modified push-pull coil taps and Seymour Duncan Alnico II set (Slash) that sound exceptional with immense clarity and very convincing single coil sounds. Satin finish is nicely worn in, starting to look very vintage / relic. It's ready to go with freshly dressed frets, comes in Gibson gig bag.

Released midway through 2010, the Les Paul Studio '50s Tribute packed the stripped-down appeal of the long-running Studio line in a great '50s-themed model with P-90 pickups that was a major hit with players everywhere, and sold out quickly as a result. Now the Les Paul Studio '50s Tribute Humbucker from Gibson USA captures the same popular look and feel, updated with the PAF-style humbucking pickups that hit the Les Paul model later that decade. This is sure to be one of the most desirable formats introduced to the Les Paul Studio series since its inception in 1983. Available in three great played-in looking grain-textured satin nitrocellulose finishes'in Worn Gold, Worn Honey Burst, and Worn Ebony'the Les Paul Studio '50s Tribute Humbucker marries the features of the legendary original Les Paul Standard to the no-nonsense styling of the Studio range, sparing elements like body and fingerboard binding and inlaid logo, to bring you significant savings, and has an extremely broad appeal as a result.
