The Tribute series brings together the features that we all love about the old school Pauls. But with some modern features like weight relief. But this one has some tricks up its sleeve.
This sweet lil' number comes in satin honeyburst and it is clean. Hardly any playwear and it's been kept in the included SKB case and well protected. She's crafted from toneful mahogany with a maple top and rosewood fretboard (12" radius). Hardware includes Kluson Vintage Deluxe tuners, and a Nashville tune-o-matic bridge.
But that's where the basic stuff ends! This one has been fitted with humbuckers from a 1992 Les Paul Standard and they sound fuggin' sweet! Also the factory wiring harness (with that nasty ol' PCB) has been completely done away with in favor of a traditional LP style wiring harness from Emerson (one of the best makers of guitar electronics and a shop favorite). This thing totally rips!
And it weighs in at only 8.78 lbs. Nice.
The badass luthiers here at EMS have given this girl a full setup and insured she has level frets so it's ready for stage or studio right outta the case. It ships the next day with the heavy duty SKB hardshell case.
