As part of the 2013 Year of Les Paul celebrations, Gibson USA brings you a Les Paul model that's available at an entry-level price to suit any budget. The Gibson Les Paul Studio LPJ DLX offers all the ingredients that made the most desirable Les Paul Standards classic tonewoods, innovative hardware, two genuine humbucking pickups, and of course Gibson's acclaimed build quality and playability all wrapped up in a stripped-down, no-nonsense package that makes this guitar a flat-out performer.
The most revered Les Paul Standards ever made had bodies constructed of a mahogany back with a two-piece carved maple top, and this guitar begins with these same cornerstones of tone. When paired, these woods offer a tonal depth and complexity unmatched by any single-wood construction, with warmth and richness from the mahogany, and superb clarity and 'snap' from the maple, all of which translates beautifully into the guitar's amplified sound.
The mahogany back is strategically weight relieved to improve comfort and enhance resonance. A neck made from hard-wearing maple is glued into the body, and carved to our popular rounded 50s profile that measures .818' at the 1st fret and .963' at the 12th. It is topped with a genuine rosewood fingerboard that carries 22 medium-jumbo frets and traditional trapezoid inlays. There's no pickguard or fingerboard binding to clutter the straight-on, stripped-down look of the LPJ, while quality touches continue with a PLEK-cut nut made from black Corian to subtly echo the black speed knobs and black pickup rings and covers. The traditional back-angled headstock is silkscreened with a gold Gibson logo that stands out clear and proud.
A pair of Gibson's popular Burstbucker pickups fire up the LP Studio LPJ Dlx through your amp of choice. An independent volume and tone control per pickup plus a three-way toggle selector switch allows a broad range of sonic variations, while Gibson USA's legendary Tune-o-Matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece ensure solid sustain and outstanding intonation. A set of vintage-style green key tuners provides an impressive 16:1 gear ratio for precise and efficient tuning.
Put it all together, and the LPJ is the fastest road to a genuine Les Paul, sparing none of the tone, while putting the legend in your hands with far less load on your wallet. Each guitar includes a black Gibson gigbag, owner's manual, and truss-rod wrench, and comes covered by Gibson USA's Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 Customer Service.
