he Essential Les Paul
The Les Paul Studio embodies the essential Les Paul features with enhancements for playability and tonal versatility. The rosewood fingerboard and slim taper mahogany neck provide effortless playability and comfort. The 490R and 498T pickups provide tight, high-output humbucking performance and the two push-pull pots offer additional coil-tapping options. Now available in four fun finishes: Smokehouse Burst, Tangerine Burst, Wine Red and Ebony.
The Les Paul Studio boasts Gibsons favoured tonewood combinations; to give you that unmistakable feel and tone. With a Mahogany body, you can expect thick lows and a lively mid-range, with the Maple top adding some fizzy top-end. Weight-relieved using Gibsons ultra-modern method, this thorough chambering process gives the guitar more resonance and a wider frequency response.
The Studios body is joined with a set Mahogany neck, and it is this pairing of woods that gives the Les Paul its renowned never-ending sustain. Adorned with a silky smooth Rosewood fingerboard, you can effortlessly glide up and down the neck, especially with the modern Slim Taper neck profile.
The Les Paul is famous for sporting a double-dose of humbuckers, and the Gibson USA Les Paul Studio is no exception. In the bridge position youll find the 498T, a powerful high-output pickup that boasts a potent upper mid-range and saturates beautifully with overdrive. The 490R neck humbucker is tamer, with a more vintage character akin to that of a traditional PAF.
Featuring traditional Les Paul circuitry, the Studios electronics provide more versatility than some of its older counterparts. With the volume controls having a push-pull function, these allow you to coil-tap the humbuckers, meaning that you can attain convincing single-coil sounds.
Gibsons Aluminium Nashville Tune-O-Matic bridge provides a stable and solid feel under the picking hand, with its simple and accessible design making it easy to adjust your action or intonation. Combined with an aluminium stopbar, this resonant material only enhances the Les Paul Studios sustain even more.
Grover tuners are considered by many as the industry standard, which is why the Studio has been fitted with a set of their high-quality Rotomatic tuners. Giving you precise control of your guitars tuning, these will also ensure great stability and reliability over time.
