What do Pete Townshend, Carlos Santana, and Tony Iommi all have in common? Back in the ’60s, each of these legendary guitarists played a Gibson SG Special with P-90 pickupsand made music history in the process. To bring this beloved rocker back to guitarists in the 21st century, Gibson USA introduces the SG Special ’60s Tribute, a guitar that honors the beloved SG Specials of nearly 50 years ago, in an instrument primed with the tone, versatility, and playability demanded by modern musicians.

Since its arrival on the scene in 1961 (originally as the Les Paul/SG Special), Gibson’s dual-horned, double-cutaway SG has been an iconic rock axe, and has become known for solid performance and tonal versatility that is unparalleled in the guitar world. The SG Special ’60s Tribute is based around the same revered tonewoods, glued-in neck, and Alnico-magnet P-90 pickups that made its predecessor legendary, with the same SlimTaper ’60s neck profile that is behind some of the fastest-playing guitars in history. Stripped-down and ready for business, the SG Special ’60s Tribute has the look and feel of a well-played friend right out of the gigbag, and comes in at a price that any hard working player can well and truly afford!

Gibson Les Paul Studio 60's Tribute Electric Guitar with P-90 Pickups Satin EbonyToday’s featured guitar is the Gibson Les Paul Studio 60’s Tribute Electric Guitar with P-90 Pickups Satin Ebony. Below is the complete description of the guitar.

The Les Paul Studio ’60s Tribute is built on a solid tradition. Ever since its introduction in 1983, the Les Paul Studio model has been enormously popular with players seeking the power and versatility of the original Les Paul Standard in a ready-for-action package, with a price to match. The instruments’ reduced ornamentationlacking body or fingerboard binding, and using plainer topshas helped to put them in the hands of many more players, while their adherence to the Les Paul’s hardware, pickup, and construction traditions retained all the thick, meaty tone and unsurpassed playability for which the Standard has been known for nearly 60 years.

The Les Paul Studio ’60s Tribute is handcrafted by Gibson artisans in Nashville, Tennessee starting with a time-tested selection of tonewoods: a Les Paul mahogany body with a maple top that is graced with a grain texured satin finish. A mahogany neck with a ’60s profile has a 22-fret baked maple fingerboard while a pair of P-90 provide the snappy biting tone. TonePros Kluson-style tuners and the Nashvillel Tune-O-Matic bridge keep your tuning and intonation right where it should be.

Baked Maple:
Aging maple through a baking process called torrefaction. The wood is kept at 200-300º F for a period of time until the wood knows its no longer a tree; Moisture is restored under pressure. This makes the wood very hard, sonically live and extremely stable. The snappy sound of ebony, with the look of medium-brown pau ferro. Many boutique manufacturers are now using this because it improves the wood with no chemical treatment, its environmentally friendly and is great for making better sounding and playing guitars!
