Description

The Gibson USA Les Paul Tribute 2018 Electric Guitar pays homage to its vintage predecessors with classic Les Paul styling and tones.

Inspired by the coveted vintage Les Paul models that came before it, the Gibson USA Les Paul Tribute 2018 gives you that legendary Les Paul tone and aesthetic without the vintage price tag. Crafted from the same ingredients that helped make the originals legendary, the Les Paul Tribute 2018 sports a solid mahogany back beneath a carved maple top that comes available in your choice of Satin Gold or Faded Honey Burst finishes. It features a traditional cream pickguard, trapezoid inlays on a rosewood fingerboard, and a set of 490R/498T pickups that dish out those beloved 'Burst-approved PAF tones. Enhancing the vintage vibe, the Les Paul Tribute 2018 comes complete with nickel-plated old-school-style hardware including vintage-style tuners and a classic pairing of an aluminum Tune-O-Matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece. Includes soft case and Gibson Accessory Kit.

Doesn't Get Any Better !

By 

from Edison, NJ

Staff Reviewer

Gibson's new 2018 iteration of the Les Paul Tribute is the Les Paul you've always wanted at a price you'd be more than happy to pay. Great sound, all around playability and a beautiful, timeless design. Vintage nickel-plated hardware and tuning gives this guitar a very dated and classic look albeit being a 2018 model. The honey burst looks stunning in person and is almost guaranteed to catch eyes at your next gig !

Incredible value for a USA Gibson Les Paul

By 

from Cincinnati, OH

Staff Reviewer

If you're a fan of the Gibson Les Paul but don't have a ton of money to spend then give these 2018 Tributes a look! You get the build quality Gibson USA is known for with a cool vintage aesthetic and vibe. The faded honey burst finish looks awesome with the cream pickguard, trapezoid inlays, and nickel hardware. Considering it's a slightly stripped down cosmetic it really looks great and unlike some lower end "stripped down" Gibsons doesn't look like they cut corners on looks. Personally I love that it's outfitted with vintage style hardware and the pickups really dish out some classic PAF style tones perfect for blues, rock, jazz, country and just about anything you can throw at them. As with any guitar I found that after a few quick tweaks I had it setup just how I'd like it and I'd encourage anyone looking at one to get a setup plan to 1) get it to your personal taste and 2) to protect your investment for the long haul. Although it's awesome in it's stock form I can't help but wonder what a bone nut and a set of boutique pickups/rewiring the electronics could do to take this guitar to the next level. What can I say I enjoy modding reasonably priced instruments and setting them up and blowing my friends away? Bottom line! Terrific value for anyone in the market for a USA Gibson Les Paul. Also props to Gibson for throwing in the accessory pack and soft case.

    Just picked up my Gold Top at my local Sam Ash. I think these are fantastic for the money. Love the look of the Gold Top. Plays extremely well and sounds fantastic. Love the pickups. They sound amazing. Needed no setup before leaving the store. The neck is very comfortable. Gibson did a nice job on the frets. No sharp or protruding edges to be found.
    There are two reasons I decided to go with the 2018 instead of the previous model which is now on sale everywhere you go.
    First, I like that this years model goes back to the traditional, non-weight relieved body. Does it make that much of a difference in tone? Probably not. But that's just me. I feel a Les Paul should be a solid chunk of wood.
    Second, the soft case is a great upgrade from the previous gig bags. Yes, this is a soft case and should not be confused for a gig bag. It is designed with a neck rest that keeps the headstock elevated with an attractive velcro strap that secures the neck. A red plush lines the interior and the exterior is genuine brown leather with the Gibson logo in gold. I like it so much I feel no need to replace it with a hardshell.
    Hats off to Gibson. This is a super cool Les Paul at an excellent price point. I know the Tribute is going to continue to be a huge seller for them and rightly so.

      The Les Paul tribute series has been a favorite for a while, and the new 2018's are no exception. Very comfortable feel, great price point, comes with a killer gig bag, and is a total rock tone monster! You can't really ask for anything more out an American made instrument. Definitely add one to your arsenal today!
