Made this little comparison for you:


Based on this, I would pick the Tribute. Better hardware, less heavy (the reason I dislike Les Pauls), more tonal controls and I think 3 pickups on a Les Paul look rather silly.

Nicest compliment on my looks:

Tribute.

And well yes, I'll enjoy the carpal tunnel and tendonitis, because trying to get one is clearly smarter than any word you have spoken thus far.

Tribute. The Black Beauty's nice enough, but even among those who don't consider the middle pickup an inconvenience (it can be quite in the way) I'm not sure I've ever met anyone who actually made significant use of it. The pickups on the Tribute are nicer anyway.

I own both. The Tribute is the one you want. The real Gibson Classic 57 pickups and the Grover locking tuners are a real bonus plus Switchcraft 3 way switch and output jack with CTS pots and Malory tone caps. Another thing to consider is that middle pick up on the Black Beauty often kinda gets the way. It's a beautiful guitar and I like it but when I go out and gig the 1960 Tribute has been my go to guitar for about a year and a half now.
Yes I am guitarded also, nice to meet you.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
