The Les Paul Future Tribute takes the classic platform of the original Les Paul Standards forward into the 21st century by starting with the timeless tonewood combination of a mahogany body with solid carved maple top. When paired, these woods offer a tonal depth and complexity unmatched by any single-wood construction, with warmth and richness from the mahogany, and superb clarity and œsnap from the maple, all of which translates to surprising breadth and articulation within the guitar' amplified voice. The mahogany back is strategically weight relieved using modern weight relief methods to both lighten your load and improve resonance.
A solid mahogany neck is glued into the body in Gibson' time-tested tradition, and carved to an ergonomic and superbly comfortable new asymmetrical profile that fits the natural shape of the human hand, with depths of .800 at the 1st fret and .875 at the 12th, making this one of the most playable Les Pauls yet created. It is topped with a genuine rosewood fingerboard that carries 22 medium-jumbo frets and traditional trapezoid inlays. In keeping with the stripped-down ethos of this powerful performer, both body and ™board remain unbound, and there' no pickguard to obscure the finish. A PLEK-cut nut made from black Corian subtly complements the knurled chrome knobs and black pickup rings, while enhancing resonance and sustain. The headstock is silkscreened with a gold Gibson logo and Les Paul Model.
The Les Paul Future Tribute ensures its sonic versatility and hot looks with a pair of zebra-coil ™57 Classic humbucking pickups, consisting of a standard-wound humbucker in the neck position and a slightly over-wound ™57 Classic Plus for hotter lead tones in the bridge position. The ™57 Classics begin in the image of Gibson' esteemed PAF humbuckers, with genuine Alnico 2 magnets and 42-AWG enamel-coated wire, but are enhanced with evenly matched coils for a smooth, singing tone, and wax potting to combat microphonic squeal at high volume levels. The result is a pickup that is thick, rich, and warm, yet clear and articulate”perfect for the broad demands of today' music. The traditional wiring complement of an independent volume and tone control per pickup plus a three-way toggle selector switch allows a broad range of sonic variations.
To anchor it all down, Gibson USA loads in a classic tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, then rams it all into the future with a set of super-efficient Steinberger gearless tuners, a hardware set that partners up for solid sustain and precision tuning. Put it all together, and the Les Paul Future Tribute presents the perfect way to celebrate the Les Paul in the 21st century, wrapping it all into a great guitar that brings the look, feel, and sound of a classic Les Paul to the hands of the demanding players of today.
