❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Studio Arctic White, 2013


Instrument Categories: , , ,

This new, older stock 2013 model Gibson Les Paul Studio in Arctic White. This is a remarkable instrument, using the classic Les Paul design but stripped down in terms of decoration. It is very resonant with lots of sustain, but is light and well balanced. And, because it’s a Studio model, it’s considerably less expensive than a Les Paul Standard, Classic, Traditional or Custom, though it is made in the USA, in the same Gibson Nashville, Tennessee facility.

For added tonal versatility, the two volume control pots are push-pull models, wired to activate a tap on the Gibson USA Modern Classic pickups – a 490R in the neck position and a 498T at the bridge. The bridge is a standard Gibson Tune-o-Matic paired with a stop bar tailpiece, and the tuners are TonePros Kluson-style with plastic Keystone buttons.

I like this Les Paul Studio a lot. At under 8 pounds, it’s light, and the weight relief chambering gives it a resonance and upper harmonic brilliance that some versions lack. Gibson uses a PLEK machine to deal with the fret levelling on these production models, and the setup is clean and easy to play. If you need a Les Paul – and honestly, who among us does not? – this is a guitar worth looking at.

This Alpine White Les Paul Studio is a new, older stock guitar; while it is a 2013 model, its production date is Monday, October 22nd, 2012.   It comes with its original warranty and hard-shell case.
