FYI The Les Paul Guitar debuted in 1952 as Gibson’s first solid body guitar and has evolved over the course of time to stand today as the benchmark for all electric guitars. After Les Paul passed away Gibson marked his memory with this Tribute Guitar.
Based on the Original LP 1952 model, only 564 of these prototypes were produced with 6 guitars made for each year Les lived- from 1915 to 2009. All will be hand numbered- 1915 A, 1915 B, 1915 C… 1916 A, 1916 B, etc. All actual 1952 LP’s were listed as prototypes so these are stamped prototype.
This instrument features a gold top nitro-cellulose finish with natural mahogany back and neck. The Trapeze tailpiece has been corrected to match Les Paul’s original Patent. Electronics wise there are a pair of authentic P-90 pickups. Other features include an engraved Tribute truss rod cover. Certificate of authenticity included.
Les Paul Tribute 1952 / A little spec:
The passing of the incomparable Les Paul in August 2009 broke the hearts of guitar enthusiasts around the world. What can never be broken, though, is the legacy of innovation and creativity that he built during 94 years of constant musicianship. Though the original guitar he designed in 1952 has informed every Gibson guitar since, our engineers were inspired anew to handcraft a guitar just the way Les demanded it nearly 60 years ago. Never before has a Les Paul guitar been so completely designed to Les’ original specifications. Until now. Anchored by a golden mahogany body, maple top and rosewood fingerboard, the Les Paul Tribute 1952 is equipped with an all-new bridge that’s an exact replica of Les’ original 1952 patent. Our luthiers have also added historical interest with details like stamping “prototype” into the back of the peg head and staying true to Les’ preference for P-90 pickups. The Les Paul Tribute 1952 honors the most important figure in all of guitar history and the guitar he designed and loved.
