The Gibson Les Paul Studio is generally the guitar that people first buy when they get into Gibsons. The guitar features a mahogany body with a mahogany neck and rosewood fretboard, 22 frets, tune-o-matic bridge, two humbuckers, two volumes, two tones, a pickguard, trapezoid inlays and a three way switch.


I generally find these have the most iffy fretwork out of the entire Gibson lineup. They're generally crowned decently, but how level they are and how much the edges stick out really depends on how the luthiers were feeling at the time of day the guitar was made. The guitars also can exhibit some nut binding issues, too. If your guitar has any of these issues, you'll want to go ahead and have a lutheir do a fret level and redo the nut. That should make the guitar play like butter. Aside from that, the guitar is pretty much a standard Gibson Les Paul minus the maple top.


The guitars generally sound darker and thicker than a normal Les Paul. They're also somewhat lighter due to the lack of a maple top. The bridge pickup is decent, but I find they're very medium output. This can prevent you from really dialing in a good metal tone if you're into that. The neck pickups are kinda bright for me. I'm a fan of really dark and smooth neck pickup tones, and I don't really like Gibson pickups for that kind of tone. If you're going to replace them, I recommend something like the JB/59 combo. That should really make the guitar scream and come alive.


If you're looking for a cheaper Gibson, get an Edwards, Burny, Tokai or something like that. You'll be much better off than buying one of these. The quality is iffy on these, they don't sound like a normal Les Paul and they lack some of the ascetics that a normal one would have.
