The Les Paul ’60s Tribute 2016 T includes all the essential elements needed to rock in classic style. The authentic vintage-style finishes present the look of a well-played original, while the instrument’s unbound body and fingerboard add a fine minimalist touch.
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
