The most affordable US Gibson Gold Top you will get – made in Nashville, TN

Following the succesful P-90 reissue, the Les Paul Studio ’50s Tribute with Humbuckers 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. With its great played-in-looking, grain-textured satin nitrocellulose Satin Gold Top finish and a dark back, this Les Paul Studio ’50s Tribute marries the features of the legendary original Les Paul Standard to the no-nonsense styling of the Studio range. It spares elements like body and fingerboard binding and inlaid logo to bring you significant savings, and has an extremely broad appeal as a result. With a chambered body it also is significantly lighter than your usual Les Paul without sacrifing tone!
The Humbuckers are from Gibson USA’s Modern Classics series. The 490R in the neck position is made with an Alnico II magnet and wound to the specs of original PAF humbuckers, for smooth tones with outstanding note definition. The 498T in the bridge position carries an Alnico V magnet for added punch, and slightly overwound coils for more bite and bluster from the “lead” setting.

This was an exclusive model for Thomann in Germany and is no longer made!
