With the Les Paul Studio Satin, Gibson delivers everything you expect from a Les Paul in a seriously affordable package. Les Paul Studios are all about tone, and the Studio Satin is no exception, shedding some higher-end cosmetic details in favor of a straightforward design with all of the tried-and-true components that define the Les Paul sound. Feel the power of two Gibson Burstbucker Pro pickups and the rich sustain of a mahogany body with carved maple top. For discerning guitarists longing for a genuine Les Paul that strikes an outstanding balance of performance and value, it doesn't get much better than the Les Paul Studio Satin.

Classic Tonewoods, Modern Finish

Like most great Les Pauls to come before it, the Studio Satin derives its robust tone and lasting sustain from a foundation of a mahogany body capped with a carved maple top. Highly precise body chambering makes this guitar a little easier on the shoulder while sacrificing none of mahogany's prized tonal qualities. A '50s-style mahogany neck is affixed with a deep-running mortise and tenon joint further enhancing the guitar's ringing sustain and lasting durability. Try some deep bends or hearty chords along the comfortable baked maple fretboard. This moisture-reduced fretboard wood adds a crisp, top-end bite to the overall sound while maintaining the already engrossing sustain and depth.

Dual Burstbucker Pro Pickups and Traditional Les Paul Hardware

For the Studio Satin, Gibson has selected a pair of Burstbucker Pro pickups which do an outstanding job capturing the tone of a vintage '50s Les Paul. Engage the bridge, neck, or both humbuckers and load your favorite amp with dense, snarling rock punch. Also included is a Nashville Tune-o-matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece just like those found on the most sought-after Les Pauls of all time, as well as black speed knobs and vintage-style tuning machines.

Features:- Classic Les Paul design and construction
- Chambered weight relieved mahogany body with maple top
- Dual Burstbucker Pro humbucking pickups with three-way selector switch
- Traditional Nashville Tune-o-matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece
- Attractive satin finish with vintage-style acrylic trapezoid inlays
- Comfortable baked maple fretboard for added sustain, clarity, and comfort
- 1.695 nut width and Gibson PLEK setup
- Included gig bag

If you've been searching for a fantastic deal on a genuine Gibson Les Paul, your quest stops here. The Les Paul Studio Satin delivers all the robust tone, versatility, sustain, and style you expect from a Les Paul with a no-frills attitude and inviting price tag. Complete with a durable Gibson gig bag, the Studio Satin is a fantastic deal. zZounds is an authorized dealer of Gibson products.

Product Description

For full-throttle Les Paul thrills at a trimmed-down, no-nonsense price, look no further than the Les Paul Studio Satin. This guitar includes all the classic ingredients that have made the Les Paul Standard legendary since humbuckers first hit the scene in 1957, along with a familiar, played-in look and feel. Ever since its introduction more than a quarter of a century ago, the Les Paul Studio has proven a major favorite with guitarists looking for genuine Les Paul tone and performance in a down-to-business package that is light on frills, heavy on swagger and easy on the pocket. Now the Les Paul Studio Satin from Gibson USA brings the package together with legendary playability, two of Gibson's finest humbucking pickups, and the classic tonewood combination--including the maple top that's missing from many Studio models--that helped to make the Les Paul Standard famous in the first place. All this, and it looks great with classic Gibson finishes, all in genuine nitrocellulose lacquer, with the pre-aged satin look and feel that so many guitarists prefer.

Just like the most revered Les Paul Standards of all time, the Les Paul Studio Satin starts with the classic tonewood combination of a mahogany body with solid carved maple top. Together, these woods offer outstanding tonal depth and richness from the mahogany, with superb clarity and "snap" from the maple. In this model, the strategic placement of several tone chambers enhances resonance while also reducing the guitar's overall weight considerably, without sacrificing an ounce of punch or sustain. And even in this more affordable instrument from Gibson USA, the glued-in, solid-mahogany neck is cut to the superior "quarter-sawn" grain orientation for superior strength and optimum resonance transfer between neck and body. The neck is carved to a comfortably rounded '50s profile that measures .818" at the 1st fret and .963" at the 12th. It is topped with a 22-fret fingerboard made from hard, brown baked maple, a wood selected for its sustain and bite. Traditional acrylic trapezoid inlays grace the board, but a lack of fingerboard and body binding help to keep costs down, while enhancing the raw, ready-to-rock look of this Studio model.

To make optimum use of all that sweet resonance and singing sustain, the Les Paul Studio Satin carries a pair of Gibson's best pickups. Updated from the acclaimed Burstbucker pickups that populate numerous instruments from Gibson Custom, the Burstbucker Pros on this guitar give you all the renowned warmth, growl and zing of genuine PAF humbuckers, with biting Alnico V magnets. The set includes a slightly overwound bridge pickup for searing lead tones, and both pickups feature wax-potted coils to squelch microphonic squeal at high volumes. Together, they provide everything from warm, vocal blues tones in the neck position, to snappy in-between settings, to phenomenal crunch and wail in the bridge position. To further maximize all that vibrational energy, Gibson includes its legendary Tune-o-matic bridge and stud-mounted wraparound tailpiece, along with a PLEK-cut Corian nut, and a set of vintage-style TonePros(tm) tuners. Wrap it all in a grab-and-go Gibson gigbag, with owner's manual and coverage by Gibson's Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 Customer Service, and you've got one of the best values going in a genuine Les Paul, only from Gibson USA.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Gibson Studio"
Overall: The guitar sounds great, plays great, and it looks beautiful when you first get it. However, the paint job is sheer garbage. If you rub your fingernail aginst it, the paint literally chips off. Every time I play the guitar, it nicks. I contacted Gibson, and they said that's how it's supposed to be. What a joke! I've been playing guitar for 30 years and I've never had a guitar with a cheaper paint job. If you wan't a guitar that's going to road wear like crazy, this one's for you. I guess you have to pay over $2000.00 for a quality product from Gibson. Shame on Gibson!
