Gibson Les Paul Studio Faded in Worn Brown with Chrome Hardware

The specification of the Les Paul Studio Faded has been improved for 2011!

The Gibson Les Paul Worn Finish Studios bring together old and new Les Paul features to create a unique and special guitar. The round warmth of a carved maple top on a mahogany back first debuted in the famous 1957 Custom Black Beauty. Now Gibson brings this fabulous wood combo back with the added vintage edge of Gibson's Alnico V BurstBucker Pro humbuckers. 

Here's what Gibson say about the Les Paul Studio Faded

Some guitar players like the look and feel of a shiny, brand new guitar. Others, however, prefer the look and feel of a timeworn instrument - a guitar, without the sheen, that looks a little used, and has a smooth, worn look to it. For these players, there is the Les Paul Studio Faded from Gibson USA, which lets you see and feel the wood grain's natural beauty. And just like its brother, the Les Paul Studio, the Les Paul Studio Faded offers up breathtaking Les Paul performance in a modern, no-frills package that's sure to please even the most discriminating players. When the first Les Paul Studio hit the streets in 1983, it instantly became a favorite among scores of prominent studio musicians. Why? Because it consisted of a basic Les Paul chassis with all the essential elements needed to rock, including a solid mahogany body and a pair of genuine Gibson humbucker pickups. It's still that way today, but only better. The Les Paul Studio Faded remains one of the most desired - and popular - guitars in the Gibson line, and what it lacks in extras it makes up for in performance. If you don't believe us, ask any one of the thousands of musicians who play it today. The Les Paul Studio becomes your favorite guitar right out of the case. Play it and it becomes your best friend. Make the connection you need today.

Fast & Comfortable Rounded Neck Profile

Gibson's traditional rounded neck profile, which graces the neck of each Les Paul Studio Faded, is a thicker, rounder profile, emulating the neck shapes of the iconic Les Paul Standards of the late 1950s. Each neck is machined in Gibson's rough mill using wood shapers to make the initial cuts. But once the fingerboard gets glued on, the rest - including the final sanding - is done by hand. That means each neck ends up with ever-so-subtle differences that make each one as exceptional - and unique - as the next.

Gibson's Burstbucker Pro Pickups

Gibson's drive to recapture the magic of the original "Patent Applied For" humbucker pickups of the 1950s culminated with the introduction of the Burstbucker line in the early 1990s. Those Burstbuckers-Types 1, 2, and 3-successfully captured the subtle variations of true, classic humbucker tone with historically "unmatched" bobbin windings and Alnico II magnets. In 2002, Gibson followed up this innovative accomplishment with yet another breakthrough in pickup design-the Burstbucker Pro, designed specifically for the new Les Paul Standards. The Burstbucker Pro features an Alnico V magnet (instead of the Alnico II), which offers slightly higher output and allows preamps to be driven a little harder to achieve a more natural break-up. Like all Burstbuckers, the Burstbucker Pro has asymmetrical coils-true to the original PAFs-which supply a more open sound. The Burstbucker Pro Neck is wound slightly less than the original PAFs, while the Burstbucker Pro Bridge is slightly overwound for increased output. The Burstbucker Pro pickups are also wax potted to allow loud volume pressures with minimal feedback. As with all Gibson pickups, every part is precisely manufactured at Gibson USA in Nashville, Tennessee, insuring tight, seamless fittings, and superior workmanship.

Smooth baked maple fingerboard with classic Les Paul trapezoid inlays

The fingerboard is constructed from the highest grade baked maple on the planet. Each piece of wood is personally inspected and qualified by Gibson's team of skilled wood experts before it enter the factories to be fitted onto the necks. The resilience of this dense and durable wood makes these fingerboards extremely balanced and stable, and gives each chord and note unparalleled clarity and bite. Additionally, the 12-inch radius of the fingerboard provides smooth note bending capabilities and eliminates "dead" or "choked out" notes. The traditional trapezoid inlays are made of figured acrylic, and offer a classic "pearl" look. They are inserted into the fingerboard using a process that eliminates gaps and doesn't require the use of fillers.

    I went to Andertons to buy a Les Paul Studio with a different finish.Eoghan brought out seven or eight for me to play and assess. The Faded Worn Brown guitar is a revelation. It is set up properly and sounds as a Les Paul should. It is more comfortable to play sitting down compared with many of it's more expensive brothers due the lighter construction and in some ways, better balance. Excellent service from Eoghan and terrific USA made guitar at "budget" money. I have changed the black plastic switch tip for a metal one and away I go...Highly recommended ! Michael, East Sussex.

    This guitar is a bargain at this price. Could not afford a Standard but this does everything I want. I was a bit concerned about ordering on the web but it arrived in all good condition on the planned day, with a good set up. I'm struggling to put it down at the moment!

    I couldn't be happier with this guitar. It was within my budget,but feels and sounds just as good as a guitar I could have paid double for.Plays beautifully,easy to hold more complicated chords,looks lovely,gorgeous quality - I can't put it down. That's the point,right?

    Fantastic guitar, the sound is unbelievable. I also own a washburn and an ibanez and decided to go for a Gibson, I keep telling everyone i'll never go back to the other two!

    A week earlier I bought a Blackstar HT5 Combo - tested with a number of different guitars including a Les Paul Faded Studio. Went home a happy chap with HT5 but something was missing - the Gibson Burstbucker sound. Came back a week later to get a LP Faded - super guitar, lovely feel, fab sound, all being considered a great buy and even better with Blackstar value goodness. I have no financial interest in either company!!

    I bought this for my fiance's birthday and he has not put it down since. His coments are: can't be faulted, everything you would expect from a Gibson Les Paul and more!

    He loves the feel and sound of it and its pure pleasure to play.
