Gibson USA 2018 Les Paul Studio in Vintage Sunburst
The Les Paul Studio is a staple in the Gibson lineup year after year. And that's because it's an affordable, American-made instrument that can handle any playing situation you can throw at it. As its name suggests, it's incredibly versatile in the studio - but it also makes a great live and practice guitar.
Body & Neck
The neck is a slim taper that feels comfortable in the hand giving you the ability to fly across the Rosewood fretboard. And the body has the classic Les Paul formula of Mahogany back with a plain two-piece Maple top.
Pickups & Electronics
In the neck position you have a 57 Classic for those smooth, creamy neck tones and in the bridge, you've got the slightly hotter 57 Classic + for a little extra bite. Both pickups can also be coil-tapped for brighter single coil tones and you can do this by tapping the volume control for each pickup.
Here's what Gibson say about the 2018 Les Paul Studio:
The Les Paul Studio is a stylish, essential guitar that delivers on design, tone and playability with authority. The white-bound, solid-rosewood fingerboard and Slim Taper neck provide a high-end appearance and enhanced playing feel.
A pair of Gibson’s most popular humbucking pickups, ‘57 Classic and ‘57 Classic+ and 2 pushpull pots in an Ultra-Modern weight relief body contribute to the incredible tone variety of this Les Paul Studio.
