dilemma- Les Paul Special with P90s or Les Paul 60's tribute with P90's

Recommended Posts

torn between two guitars. any insights in differences in tone and playability would be helpful. does the maple cap on the 60's tribute contribute to increased sustain or is it purely cosmetic. any other significant differences in construction between the two?

The body is very different, the 60s Tribute being what you would call a 'full' LP body, probably weight-relieved.

The LP Special is a lighter guitar which might make it easier to handle in some ways.

 

I'm no expert but I have a 1956 spec LP with P90s. Fabulous guitar, great-sounding pups but they do hum at higher volume.

 

Regards!
