Kluson-style tuners keep it all rock-solid and resonant, while point-to-point wired “Orange Drop” tone caps help to translate that raw, gnarly P-90 tone in true 50s style. We also added an aftermarked Bigsby bridge!
Body and Finish
A solid, carved maple top and chambered mahogany body give the Les Paul Studio 50s Tribute the same tonewood combination that has been helping Les Pauls rock for nearly 50 years. Five authentic 50s-style finishes—Worn Gold Top, Worn Honey Burst, Worn Heritage Cherry Sunburst, Worn Ebony or Worn White—present a guitar with the look of a well played original, while the instrument’s unbound body and neck keep it in line with the popular Les Paul Studio line.
Pickups and Electronics
To give it the vintage look and meaty, raw sound of an original 50s Les Paul, the Les Paul Studio 50s Tribute carries two Gibson USA P-90 pickups, which are wired through the traditional four-knob Les Paul control array, with a three-way Switchcraft toggle selector and quality “Orange Drop” tone capacitors on the tone pots.
Neck and Headstock
The Les Paul Studio 50s Tribute is crafted with a solid quarter-sawn mahogany neck, a rosewood fingerboard, and a headstock set at the traditional 17-degree angle for superior transference of vibrational energy—all ingredients of the classic Les Paul Standard of the 1950s.
