Up next in our rundown of more affordable Gibson guitars, we look at something for the southpaws, the fantastic Gibson Les Paul Tribute 2018. Giving you a total rock star guitar at a far lower price point, we can't believe how outstanding these look and sound.
Flaunting a set of powerful 490R & 498T covered humbuckers, this Les Paul Tribute has tone for days. The same pickups are used on some Standard SGs and Les Paul Customs so make no mistake, these guitars are well specced and have some really high-quality parts. It's Slim Taper neck has a 24.75” scale length and 12” radius which feels really comfortable to play and this model isn't weight relieved either, so those who've always fancied a big chunky Les Paul to riff out on will instantly fall in love.
With an unbelievable looking Satin Gold finish that harks back to some of Gibsons most classic models, this really is a lot of guitar for the money. We couldn't believe how great these sounded and despite having no lefties on hand to give you their own demo of this lefty Les Paul Tribute, we've done our best to make it work!
