Gibson Les Paul Studio Faded T: The Real Deal for a Steal!

A workhorse of an electric guitar, the Gibson 2016 Les Paul Studio Faded T sports an attractive carved maple top with a faded finish that evokes a vintage instrument, on a mahogany body with modern weight relief that'll keep you light on your feet. This stripped-down beauty is the 2016 version of one of Gibson's most popular guitars. A mahogany neck in an inviting and comfortable rounded '59 profile features 22 frets over a silky rosewood fingerboard. Fueling your amplifier with that vitage Gibson PAF tone is a pair of Burstbucker Pro alnico 5 humbuckers. This more affordable 2016 model is a great way to treat your fingers and ears to the unmatched tone, feel, and overall look Gibson knocks out of the park year after year.

Learn more about the Les Paul Studio Faded T in this overview demo:


Mahogany Body with Weight Relief

Nothing fits quite like the iconic Les Paul body shape, and this 2016 release doesn't pull any punches when it comes to tone. A heavy wood like mahogany really emphasizes the middle and lower frequency along with bringing in additional sustain. Gibson's weight relief design keeps your Les Paul from weighing you down, which can come in handy during longer performances on stage or in the studio.

Burstbucker Pro Humbuckers

A pair of Burstbucker Pro humbuckers fuel your amplifier with that irresistible PAF tone. Both of these pickups utilize alnico V magnets and wax potted coils that help drown out microphonics that may sneak in at higher volumes. Combine these humbuckers with a tube amplifier and hear your Les Paul purr.

Mahogany Neck in Rounded '59 Profile

Some guitarists aren't a fan of the bulkier necks associated with the very first Les Paul models, so Gibson fitted your Les Paul Studio Faded T with a rounded '59 profile. This contour is somewhere between the thicker earlier necks and the thinner slim-taper '60s carve. The rosewood fingerboard is smooth to the touch and features 22 frets with comfortable action suitable for a wide range of different styles of playing.

Gibson 2016 Les Paul Studio Faded T

The Gibson Les Paul Studio Faded features a smooth, unbound body and a traditional carved maple top, with a beautiful faded finish that lends the look of a lovingly played vintage guitar. A rounded '59 neck profile with a rosewood fingerboard and two screaming Burstbucker Pro pickups provide a world of classic Les Paul playing feel and commanding tone.

Features:

- The time-honored tuner look, with smooth, efficient performance
- Traditional playing feel of the very first Les Pauls
- Density for solid sustain, self-lubrication for no "string stick" - even with heavy string bending
- Vintage look and feel
- The best of both worlds - slimmer than the traditional neck, thicker than the "slim-tapered" '60s carve
- Combines legendary resonance and sustain with maximum playing comfort
- Made to exacting PAF specs, with potted coils that squelch squeal at high gain
- Sustain and sonic clarity are the hallmarks of this hard-wearing wood
- This handcrafted, American-made guitar is ready for action
- The beautifully faded, hand-sprayed satin nitrocellulose lacquer finish captures the lovingly aged look of a vintage guitar
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (22 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Lots of Les Paul"
Overall: I spolied myself in '82 by purchasing my first Gibson Les Paul Custom. I was only 16 and I worked all summer, and then some, saving evey cent for that beautiful wine red with gold hardware LP custom. Needless to say, I set my standards very high. Every Fender, Ibanez, etc. were no match, to me, that is. After more than 3 decades, I finally decided it was time for anotther GLP. I researched for months and decided on the Gibson 2016 Les Paul Studio Faded T in worn cherry. I was absolutely amazed. The look, the feel, the action, the sustain felt identical to my GLP Custom. Call me crazy or whatever, but most importantly, call me the guy who owns two Les Paul's to compare side side-by-side. For the price, I'm sure you'll be just as impressed with this Les Paul studio. Cheers!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Very Pleased"
Overall: When buying online your kind of at a disadvantage by not being able to play a guitar prior to buying it. I talked myself into it by thinking well if I get a Gibson it's gotta sound great right? I couldn't be happier. I own 12 guitars currently and have owned countless others including Gibsons. This one is right there in the top few of best playing and sounding instruments I've had the privilege to play. Not to mention it looks great too !
