The Les Paul ’60s Tribute 2016 HP’s authentic vintage-style finishes present a guitar with the look of a well-played original, and the instrument’s unbound body and fingerboard offer tasteful minimalism.
A new and exclusive fast-access heel allows unparalleled access to the high notes, and when combined with our slim taper neck profile and new soloist neck width, results in one of the fastest playing Les Paul ever made.
Orville Gibson founded the company in 1902 as “The Gibson Mandolin-Guitar Mfg. Co., Ltd.” in Kalamazoo, Michigan to make mandolin-family instruments. Gibson invented archtop guitars by constructing the same type of carved, arched tops used on violins. By the 1930s, the company was also making flattop acoustic guitars, as well as one of the first commercially available hollow-body electric guitars, used and popularized by Charlie Christian. www.gibson.com
