The Les Paul Special is a beloved design that oozes retro charm. The Special Tribute model comes with no-frills spec aimed at straight-up roaring tone; with a set of dual 490 humbuckers and four distinct satin finishes, you’re in for a good time.

Body & Neck

The Les Paul Special Tribute gets a maple neck and mahogany body, complete with a lush satin nitro finish. A Rosewood fingerboard with acrylic dots ensures a smooth, rounded tone that’s brilliantly complemented by the double open humbucker setup.

Gibson’s Slim Taper neck (with a standard 24.75” scale length) is comfortable in the hand without ever feeling too slim or causing cramp for players with bigger hands. The finish continues along the neck, while the headstock boasts the classic blackout look.

Electronics & Hardware

A Les Paul with double humbuckers duo is rock ‘n’ roll dynamite. The Special Tribute has two 490 humbuckers, squeezing rich, gritty tone from that Mahogany body that’s a guaranteed winner. These pickups sound killer through a cranked valve amp or Bluesbreaker-style overdrive pedal, ideal for high-octane blues or classic rock.

Chrome hardware and black top hat control knobs offer little distraction from the Special Tribute’s vintage looks, polished off with a compensated wraparound bridge and 5-fly pickguard in black. Delightful.
