Gibson Les Paul Studio Guitars FAQs

What is a Gibson Les Paul Studio?

The Les Paul Studio is one of Gibson’s best-selling electric guitars. Introduced in 1983, the Gibson Les Paul Studio has always been regarded as a more affordable, stripped-back version of the Les Paul Standard. The understated look of the Les Paul Studio has made it a popular workhorse guitar that still ultimately provides the legendary LP sound and feel.

What's the difference between a Les Paul Studio and Les Paul Standard?

The main differences between the Les Paul Studio and Standard are aesthetic. A Gibson Les Paul Standard has a body adorned with a gorgeous Flamed Maple top, while a Les Studio has a plain Maple cap instead. Gibson Les Paul Studio guitars also lack the body and neck binding you’d see on Les Paul Standards, giving them a much simpler look. A Studio is considerably lighter than a Standard though, with a modern weight-relieved body making it ideal for live use. Les Paul Studio guitars also feature push/pull volume knobs that coil-tap their humbuckers for single-coil-style sounds; Les Paul Standards do not have this functionality.

Is a Gibson Les Paul Studio any good?

Gibson Les Paul Studio guitars are used by thousands of musicians all over the world. Since their introduction in the mid-’80s, these models have improved a lot in quality and are now even closer to the specifications of the flagship Les Paul Standard. They’re great guitars for players who want genuine US-made Les Paul quality without spending too much money.

Does a Les Paul Studio sound like a Standard?

A Gibson Les Paul Studio may look more understated than its LP Standard counterpart, but sonically the two guitars are very similar. Both equipped with proprietary Gibson humbuckers, the Les Paul Studio comes installed with 498T (bridge) and 490R (neck) pickups while the Les Paul Standard ‘50s/’60s models are fitted with variants of the acclaimed Burstbucker. The pickups in the Studio have a high output and are great for use with overdrive and high-gain. Burstbuckers are slightly more traditional-sounding and have a powerful PAF tone with plenty of mid-range bite.
