Gibson 2013 Les Paul
Gold Top/Dark Back
Vintage Gloss Lacquer Finish
No Longer in Production Model
Mahogany Neck with Asymmetrical Profile
Steinberger Gearless Tuners
This unplayed 2013 Les Paul Future Tribute carries a pair of “zebra-coil” ’57 Classic humbucking pickups for a blend of vintage warmth and contemporary articulation, along with a superbly comfortable custom asymmetrical neck profile. Gibson’s acclaimed bridge and tailpiece team up with futuristic Steinberger gearless tuners to ensure smooth playability and precise tuning and intonation.
A solid mahogany neck is glued into the body in Gibson’s time-tested tradition, and carved to an ergonomic and superbly comfortable new asymmetrical profile that fits the natural shape of the human hand, with depths of .800” at the 1st fret and .875” at the 12th, making this one of the most playable Les Pauls yet created. It is topped with a genuine rosewood fingerboard that carries 22 medium-jumbo frets and traditional trapezoid inlays. In keeping with the stripped-down ethos of this powerful performer, both body and ’board remain unbound, and there’s no pickguard to obscure the finish. A PLEK-cut nut made from black Corian subtly complements the knurled chrome knobs and black pickup rings, while enhancing resonance and sustain. The headstock is silkscreened with a gold Gibson logo and Les Paul Model.
This gold topped beauty ensures its sonic versatility and hot looks with a pair of zebra-coil ’57 Classic humbucking pickups, consisting of a standard-wound humbucker in the neck position and a slightly over-wound ’57 Classic Plus for hotter lead tones in the bridge position. The ’57 Classics begin in the image of Gibson’s esteemed PAF humbuckers, with genuine Alnico 2 magnets and 42-AWG enamel-coated wire, but are enhanced with evenly matched coils for a smooth, singing tone, and wax potting to combat microphonic squeal at high volume levels. The result is a pickup that is thick, rich, and warm, yet clear and articulate. The traditional wiring complement of an independent volume and tone control per pickup plus a three-way toggle selector switch allows a broad range of tonal variations.
To anchor it all down, Gibson USA loads in a classic tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, then rams it all into the future with a set of super-efficient Steinberger gearless tuners, a hardware set that partners up for solid sustain and precision tuning.
