The "Workhorse" Les Paul Gets a Modern Makeover!
Gibson's 2015 release of the Les Paul Studio hosts a bevy of new features to bring your electric guitar game into the modern era. Your 2015 Les Paul Studio electric guitar boasts a maple-topped mahogany body; a mahogany neck in a super-playable slim taper profile; a slightly wider, thicker, and smoother 22-fret rosewood fingerboard; an adjustable zero fret; an awesome '57 Classic and '57 Classic Plus pickup pairing with a mini toggle for coil-tapping tones; Gibson's unparalleled G FORCE automated tuning system; and a secure and sturdy Tune-o-Matic bridge and Stop Bar for longer sustain and confident intonation. You'll love all of the wonderful attributes Gibson has brought to the table for 2015 -- a year commemorating Les Paul's 100th birthday.
Improved Internal Design for Uninterrupted Signal Integrity
Like all Gibson's 2015 Les Paul models, this LP Studio features a more robust inner design to make sure that your notes make it to your amplifier in robust fashion. Tougher cables will ensure that your Les Paul Studio's circuitry will stand up to the test of time better, and an improved contact output jack will keep you rocking in assured confidence show after show. You'll be able to keep your attention focused on your performance instead of your gear.
Maple and Mahogany Body
Nothing beats that warm and full-bodied tone that only Les Paul solidbody guitars are capable of, and your Les Paul Studio follows suit with its maple-topped mahogany body. Maple is a resilient wood that holds up well to scratches and dings, and it brings a welcoming brightness to your tone. Mahogany keeps your lows and mids firm and present for a resonance dark in color. The Les Paul body shape of this guitar rests comfortably against your front, with its single cutaway to get you to those higher frets with ease.
Master luthier Jim DeCola speaks about Gibson's history and their 2015 models:
Improved Mahogany Neck and Rosewood Fretboard
Your Les Paul Studio features an improved mahogany neck cut into an invitingly comfortable slim taper profile. The slightly wider rosewood fingerboard on this appendage has been sanded, buffed, and oiled for a smoother feel. A wider fretboard means you'll have more room for bends and vibratos. This baby's action is super tight, but if you want to make further tweaks, your adjustable zero fret nut gives you more control over how close your strings can get to each of this neck's 22 frets.
Speedy and Reliable G FORCE Automated Tuning System
Gibson has taken the technology from their onboard Min-ETune tuning system and stepped things up a notch or two. The G FORCE automated tuning system allows you to tune your guitar in one simple strum. Alternate tunings are also at your fingertips, and you can tune your axe to an external source as well if that source is slightly sharp or flat.
'57 Classic Neck and '57 Classic Plus Bridge Humbuckers
You'll love the old school Alnico II PAF tone these babies dish out. Your '57 Classic neck humbucker gives you a warm and well-articulated output, and your '57 Classic Plus bridge humbucker projects a slightly hotter sound with a more aggressive attack. These pickups feature wax-potted coils and orange drop capacitors for a pure and unadulterated signal. Plus, your pair of '57 Classic humbuckers are coil-tappable, a feature that gives your Les Paul Studio that biting single-coil sound. With this guitar, you'll be prepared for every gig or session!
