Flawless Construction Means Flawless Tone

The Les Paul Studio's carved, solid maple top creates tone with an assertive bite. The back is solid mahogany with a classic weight-relieved design, imparting almost endless amounts of sustain and super-pure tone. The warmth and resonance on this instrument is of the same high standard as all Gibson Les Pauls. Its all-mahogany neck is set with a rich brown granadillo fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets that feel fantastic under your fingers. The chrome Tune-o-Matic bridge and vintage-style tuners ensure a tuning stability that is truly excellent.

Updated Electronics with Push/Pull Tone Knobs

In the pickup slots, the Gibson Les Paul Studio has a 490R holding down the neck position and a 498T in the bridge. Utilizing genuine Alnico magnets, these pickups are significantly hotter than the '57 Classics that appear on other Gibson Les Pauls. In short, they were designed to deliver a more versatile and powerful sound for contemporary players. Both pickups benefit hugely from a four-conductor wiring scheme, and each is wired here to their own push/pull knobs for splitting the coils if so desired. This essentially doubles the tonal capabilities of a normal Les Paul, allowing the humbuckers to function somewhat more like single-coil pickups.

A Classic Fast-Playing Neck Shape

The neck on the Les Paul Studio is carved in the classic '60s Slim Taper profile with a 24.75-inch scale length. This is generally the most popular neck profile on any of the contemporary Les Pauls, and satisfies the greatest number of players.

Elegant Hardware Accents

The Gibson Les Paul Studio comes with an elegant trapezoidal fingerboard inlays. The black headstock is unadorned and stamp this guitar as peerless in pedigree.

- Carved maple top
- Mahogany body and neck
- Classic '60s Slim Taper neck profile

Revolutionary New Self-Tuning Instrument

This particular Gibson Les Paul Studio comes with the revolutionary Min-ETune system pre-installed on the rear of the headstock. The Min-ETune is a super compact, battery-powered robotic tuner that literally tunes your guitar for you. In just seconds, it will pull your guitar into tune automatically based on a default EADGBE configuration or 1 of 12 popular alternate tuning presets. Or it will tune to 1 of 6 user programmable presets. You can also manually adjust the strings at any point with the tuning pegs without any disruption of the system. Every battery charge delivers 80-100 tunings.

- Re-freshes tuning in 3 seconds or 1 strum

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "The exact sound I've been lookin'for."
Overall: I've been looking for 25 years to get this sound. I play it thru my Marshall M100c combo tube amp. I know if you play a nice Les Paul thru a nice Marshall of course its gonna sound great. Let me mention I've had 14 small strokes and for almost a year I couldn't tie my own shoes. I quit playing for a bit untill I started playing for physical therapy. It takes 10 seconds to tune, light weight, looks beautiful, plays like a dream, and sounds exactly how I want. I can start off with some Zeppelin go to Nugent and end with Matalica. All on the same set up and it all sounds great. To me it makes my playing sound a lot better than how well I can play. Easy to afford and I will play this for the rest of my life. I have always played the competitors high end popular guitar but I gotta say this is definatly my new go to guitar. Finally man I got it. Thnx zzounds and Gibson.
Style of Music: Good music is my favorite but I listen mostly to hard rock metal and country.
