What Haworth Guitars say:
The Gibson Les Paul 2018 Tribute Electric Guitar is an incredibly well-valued guitar in Gibson's Les Paul range.
The Gibson LP Tribute 2018 has a solid mahogany and maple body with no weight reduction which means that this Gibson guitar has sustain for days as well as an incredible tone which shines through the PAF inspired humbuckers with a 490R in the neck and 498T in the bridge.
We love the feel of the slim taper mahogany neck on this Gibson Les Paul Tribute here at Haworth Guitars as well as the vintage style machine heads and tektoid nut.
What Gibson has to say:
The Les Paul Tribute captures the historic character of the legendary Les Paul guitar.
Historic Gibson tonewoods, carved top, cream pickguard, vintage-style tuners, trapezoid inlays, and boosted PAF-inspired pickups give this impressive guitar classic looks and sound with an elegant, vintage touch.
No weight relief for those players who like to feel the authenticity of history in their hands.
