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!

Epiphone Tribute Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar Trans Black 1960s Neck

Epiphone Tribute Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar Trans Black 1960s NeckToday’s featured guitar is the Epiphone Tribute Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar Trans Black 1960s Neck. Below is the complete description of the guitar.

The Epiphone Tribute Les Paul Standard Tribute honors Epiphone’s history and association with Les Paul that dates back to the days when Les—working at the Epiphone factory on 14th St. in New York—created the world’s first solidbody electric guitar. Over the years, Les continued to work closely with Epiphone by reviewing new product ideas and offering suggestions. The Epiphone “Tribute” Les Paul Standard honors that relationship by combining “as good as it gets” performance and features with venerable Epiphone quality and value.

Solid woods, set-neck construction
At the heart of the Les Paul Tribute is construction that features a solid mahogany back with a solid, carved hard maple cap to create the ultimate combination of warmth and bite. Everyone knows that set-neck guitars provide the best rock tone and sustain and the Tributes Les Paul takes that to the next level featuring the original “deep set” neck joint. The solid mahogany neck with hand-fitted, glued-in joint extends well into the neck pickup cavity creating maximum neck-to-body contact and acting almost like one continuous piece of wood. Combined with the mahogany/maple body, the result is a tribute to Les’ timeless guitar design with the sound that you can only get from a Les Paul.

Your choice of neck profiles
Depending upon your taste, you have the choice of either a traditional “1960s” SlimTaper™ neck profile or an Asymmetrical neck profile. The “1960’s” SlimTaper is a comfortable “D” shaped neck that was used and made famous on many 1960s era, Kalamazoo-made guitars from Gibson and Epiphone. The newer Asymmetrical neck has multiple radiuses and combines a more rounded “D” shape on the bass side of the neck with a flatter “C” shape on the treble side. This leads to a very comfortable neck that more ergonomically contours to fit the hand of most players. Both profiles are available on the Tribute and the choice is yours!

Vintage humbucker sound
Quality construction, premium woods and neck profile choices are only part of the equation. Capturing all the power and nuances of the “Tribute” is a pair of authentic Gibson USA ’57 Classic humbucking pickups. With its “Patent Applied For” decal on the base plate, the ’57 Classic and ’57 Classic Plus are faithful replicas of the famous Gibson humbuckers that helped define the music of the late 1950s. The ’57 Classic gives you a tone that is warm and subtle with full, even response that doesn’t hold back when you need that storied Gibson humbucker crunch! The ’57 Classic Plus is the perfect bridge pickup and mimics humbuckers of that era that received a few extra turns of wire. This treatment gives the pickup slightly higher output without sacrificing its rich, vintage tone. In combination, this pair of humbuckers overdrives tube preamps to a smooth level of saturation without becoming overpowering. Both ’57s feature Gi

B.C. Rich Chuck Schuldiner Tribute Electric Guitar Onyx

B.C. Rich Chuck Schuldiner Tribute Electric Guitar OnyxToday’s featured guitar is the B.C. Rich Chuck Schuldiner Tribute Electric Guitar Onyx. Below is the complete description of the guitar.

B.C. Rich took great care in designing the Chuck Schuldiner Tribute-a Stealth guitar that can proudly represent Chuck's legacy and the indelible mark he left on the death metal genre. Chuck played several B.C. Rich guitar models throughout his short but meaningful career. The most recognized of them had to be his black single pickup, neck-through Stealth guitar. In purposeful style, Chuck laid down many creative and ferocious riffs on his B.C. Rich guitars that launched him into metal icon status. Now it's your turn to play tribute to a legend. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this tribute guitar goes directly to the family of Chuck Schuldiner.Neck-Through Construction B.C. Rich is known as one of the pioneers in neck through construction. They use it on many of their guitars, because it provides the best possible sustain, resonance, comfort and access to higher frets. Neck-through has long been considered the premium construction method for high-end guitars. This construction starts with a long piece (or pieces) of premium North American maple. That piece runs from the tip of the headstock to the strap button on the opposite end of the guitar. This means that the headstock, fingerboard, pickups and bridge all are mounted to this single sound foundation. Sonically it is a difference you can hear. The neck-through construction also allows more of the body and neck to be cut away at the neck joint, which provides comfort no bolt-on or set-neck could offer. You will find the neck through feature on all top of the line B.C. Rich models.DiMarzio X2N The X2N is a "take-no-prisoners, in-your-face" humbucker. Twin, wide-bar pole pieces give the X2N a nasty, dangerous look-and rightly so. Our highest gain pickup was created to push tube amps into total overdrive. Put one in the bridge position for a powerful jolt to the voltage the amp sees from your guitar. The result is a sound that can only be described as blistering. The magnetic field of the X2N is very powerful and focused. It captures the character of whichever guitar it's in. If your guitar is warm sounding, the X2N will act like a sledgehammer. A bright-sounding guitar will go into total scream mode. And the X2N still has versatility: single-coil and series-parallel modes are particularly effective, because the X2N pickup's power gives these sounds more authority than is possible with weaker humbuckers. Recommended For: Bridge position on solid body guitars. Tech Talk: The X2N works in any situation where maximum power and overdrive is required. The dual blade polepieces create a very even, balanced sound. The X2N works best in combination with higher-output pickups. It can also combine well with the Fast Track 1, Chopper and Pro Track. The split option is very effective, because a single X2N coil has similar performance parameters to many Strat-type pickups.Beveled Top Most of B.C. Rich body styles employ a beveled edge around the shape. In many ways bevels on

Gibson Les Paul Studio 1950's Tribute Electric Guitar Worn Satin EbonyToday’s featured guitar is the Gibson Les Paul Studio 1950’s Tribute Electric Guitar Worn Satin Ebony. Below is the complete description of the guitar.

The 1950s Tribute electric guitar consists of a basic Gibson Les Paul chassis with all the essential elements needed to rock, including a tight-grained "bookmatched" maple top that fits snugly on a two-piece mahogany body. This wood combination yields a specific yet versatile tone that many guitarists have come to demand. The one-piece mahogany neck has Gibson's traditional rounded profile, which graces the neck of each Gibson Les Paul Studio 1950s Tribute, emulates the neck shapes of the iconic Les Paul Standards of the late 1950s. Rosewood fingerboards and trapezoid inlays have been a mainstay feature on Gibson Les Paul guitars ever since the model's introduction in the 1950s. The resilience of dense and durable rosewood makes these fingerboards extremely balanced and stable, and gives each chord and note unparalleled clarity and bite. Additionally, the 12-inch radius of the Gibson Les Paul Studio's fingerboard provides smooth note bending capabilities and eliminates "dead" or "choked out" notes. The traditional trapezoid inlays are made of figured acrylic, and offer a classic "pearl" look. The headstock of the Gibson Les Paul Studio 1950s Tribute is equipped with Grover Kluson style green keys. With a gear ratio of 14:1, these tuners deliver precision tuning in a durable housing that provides maximum protection for the gear and string post. The Gibson Les Paul's Tune-O-Matic bridge, sets a standard for simplicity and functionality that has never been bettered. The Tune-O-Matic provides a firm seating for the strings, allowing the player to adjust and fine-tune the intonation and string height in a matter of minutes.Both the neck and bridge position pickups are equipped with cream-colored screaming single-coil P-90 pickups. The P-90 was the standard pickup on all Gibson guitars in the late 1940s and into the 1950s and because of its crisp, bright tone it has experienced resurgence in popularity with many of today's modern rockers. These classic Gibson guitar pickups deliver sizzling, slightly gritty midrange roar. You'll find that the P-90s' high output and biting treble has more nuanced harmonic coloring than the typical single-coil pickup.The Gibson Les Paul Studio 1950s Tribute guitar has a finish that looks a little used, and has a smooth, worn look to it, which lets you see and feel the wood grain's natural beauty. Comes with a durable Gibson gig bag.
