Used, but fantastic condition, with proper Gibson case. Super rare in this cool Silver Pearl finish.
Just because the Les Paul Studio dispenses with frills like body and fingerboard binding doesn’t mean it misses a single trick where tone and playability are concerned. Like the most revered Les Paul Standards of all time, the Les Paul Studio starts with the legendary tonewood combination of a mahogany body with solid carved maple top. Together, these woods offer outstanding tonal depth and richness from the mahogany, with superb clarity and “snap” from the maple. The new, modern weight relief in this guitar’s mahogany body enhances resonance while also reducing the guitar’s overall weight considerably.
A glued-in solid-mahogany neck is cut to the superior “quarter-sawn” grain orientation for excellent strength and optimum resonance transfer between neck and body. The neck is now carved to a slim, fast ’60s-style profile that measures .800″ deep at the 1st fret and .875″ at the 12th, and is topped with a rich brown fingerboard made from granadillo. The guitar has a PLEK-cut Corian nut, and, to further maximize vibrational energy.
Gibson includes its legendary Tune-o-matic bridge and stud-mounted wraparound tailpiece, with high-quality vintage-style TonePros™ tuners up at the top.
Plug in the Les Paul Studio through your amp of choice, and this superb blend of tonewoods and stellar hardware rams it all home through a pair of Gibson USA’s acclaimed Modern Classics pickups. Made with an Alnico II magnet and coils wound to the specs of original PAF humbuckers, the 490R in the neck position provides creamy, warm tones with outstanding articulation. Made with an Alnico V magnet and extra turns of wire for added punch and grind, the 498T in the bridge position excels at wailing leads and thundering crunch tones.
To increase the guitar’s sonic versatility exponentially, Gibson USA now includes independent coil-split switching on the Les Paul Studio: pop up either pickup’s volume control to access a new frequency tuned coil tap for a fatter single coil tone and better output balance, with hum canceling when both pickups are combined, and low-noise operation when used individually.
