This Gibson Les Paul Studio was made in the USA. It has a worn brown neck and body, both made of mahogany. It has a 22 fret rosewood fingerboard with trapezoid inlays. This Studio came with two Burstbucker Pro pickups, two volume and two tone controls, and a three way toggle switch.

UTILIZATION

Like with most other Les Pauls, access to the higher frets can be a little difficult, but with a little practice it is easy to get accustomed to. Unlike other Les Paul models, the Studio does not have binding on the body which gives it a rounder edge that is more comfortable for resting your arm. The tone of this guitar is round and fat without sounding dull. The tuners are the vintage style Klusons which I have heard some people complain about, but I have never had any issues with my guitar staying in tune.

SOUNDS

I use this guitar with a Peavey Classic 50 2x12 combo. I play all varieties of “rock,” and this guitar fits the bill perfectly. I did not like the Burstbucker pickups when I got the guitar so I replaced them with an EMG 81 in the bridge and an 85 in the neck. Compared to my Les Paul Custom, the Studio lacks some crispness due to the lack of a maple cap and the rosewood fretboard. The Studio does not sound bad by comparison; the tone is just a little rounder.

OVERALL OPINION

My thing that first attracted me to this guitar was how it looks. The natural brown, unfinished body has only one coat of nitrocellulose, so the guitar has hardly any shine, which is fine by me. The flat black EMG’s look excellent against the brown, especially once I removed the shiny, black pick guard. Guitar Center was selling these for $699, which is a great deal for a USA Gibson Les Paul. If I had to, I would definitely buy this guitar again.
