The Les Paul Studio has been a cornerstone of Gibson’s catalogue since 1983; the year it was first introduced. A more streamlined version of the flagship Standard model, the Gibson USA 2019 Les Paul Studio Elite still provides that iconic LP sound and vibe, but at a more affordable price-point.
Fitted with a Bigsby tailpiece and finished in a rare Silverburst colour, this unique special run instrument gives you features that you’d expect to find only on its more expensive counterparts.
Despite its lower price, the Les Paul Studio Elite still boasts Gibson’s favoured tonewood combinations, to give you that unmistakable feel and tone. With a Mahogany back, you can expect full-bodied lows and a lively mid-range, with the Maple top adding some fizzy top-end.
The 2019 Les Paul Studio Elite’s body is thoughtfully weight-relieved using Gibson’s ultra-modern method. The most thorough chambering process that the company offers, this gives the guitar more resonance and a wider frequency response. Apart from its tonal perks, this treatment lightens the instrument too, making it the perfect onstage workhorse.
The Studio’s body is joined with a set Mahogany neck, and this long-acclaimed pairing of woods gives the Les Paul its renowned never-ending sustain. Adorned with a silky smooth Rosewood fingerboard, you can effortlessly glide up and down the neck, especially with the modern Slim Taper neck profile that both contemporary and old-school players will adore.
The Les Paul is famous for sporting a double-dose of humbuckers, and the Gibson USA 2019 Les Paul Studio is no exception. In the bridge position you’ll find the 57 Classic +, a potent medium-output pickup that boasts a powerful mid-range, to give you more crunch and saturation when using overdriven or distorted tones.
The 57 Classic neck humbucker is slightly tamer, with a more vintage character akin to that of a traditional PAF. Still projecting a strong mid-range, this pickup gives you creamy and warm-sounding lead tones, but also works well in conjunction with clean settings.
Featuring traditional Les Paul circuitry, the 2019 Studio Elite gives you the no-nonsense functionality of its vintage counterparts. With dedicated volume and tone controls for each of its humbuckers, this gives you enough flexibility to manipulate your sound for different genres.
Gibson’s famous Tune-O-Matic bridge provides a stable and solid feel under the picking hand, with its simple and accessible design making it easy to adjust your action or intonation. Combined with a Horse Shoe Bigsby tailpiece, you can add gentle warbles to chords for country or surf-style sounds!
A set of Gibson’s Kidney tuners will give you precise control of your guitar’s tuning, ensuring great stability and reliability over time.
