Gibson Les Paul Studio

February 28, 2011
Comments off
The Gibson Les Paul Studio is a prime example of the fact that sometimes, less is more. Gibson has stripped away all the decorative flare usually associated with the Les Paul, and what we are left with is a rock-solid guitar, that sounds and plays like a million bucks, at a fraction of the cost of a Les Paul Standard.Under its stark finish, the Les Paul Studio is built from the exact same woods and materials as its more expensive counterparts. A weight relieved mahogany body with a solid maple cap give the guitar all the punch and sustain we’ve come to expect from a Les Paul, while the 490R and 498T humbucking pickups deliver thick lows, singing highs, and sweet harmonic overtones.
