The Les Paul Studio has been a huge favorite of hard-working guitarists ever since its introduction in 1983. To celebrate the 120th Anniversary of the world's most respected guitar maker, Gibson USA unveils a stunning take on this "Paul for the people": while retaining the Studio line's status as an unbeatable value in a hand-made American electric guitar, the Les Paul Studio 2014 adds innovative and upgraded features to make this the most impressive version yet at this price.
Two of Gibson's most popular humbucking pickups from the Modern Classics range, a 490R at the neck and 490T at the bridge, link the Studio 2014 with legendary Les Paul tone, while coil taps and Orange Drop tone caps expand the guitar's versatility exponentially. Further 2014 120th Anniversary additions include larger no-slip strap buttons, black Max Grip Speed Knobs, a GraphTech nut, long-life proprietary coated guitar strings, cryogenic treated fret wire for longer life and corrosion resistance, a full PLEK setup, and a 120th Anniversary logo inlay at the 12th fret.
Body and neck
The Les Paul Studio 2014 is crafted in the image of the original Les Paul Standard. It's made from a solid mahogany back with modern weight relief for enhanced resonance and a lighter strapped-on feel, with a carved Grade-A figured maple top. Its glued-in maple neck features a slim '60s profile, a rosewood fingerboard with 22 cryogenic treated frets for long life, traditional trapezoid inlays, and a commemorative 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret.
Pickups and electronics
The guitar carries a pair of Gibson's popular 490R and 490T humbucking pickups in the neck and bridge positions. These pickups are crafted in the image of the original PAFs with genuine Alnico magnets, but updated for the requirements of contemporary music. They are wired through the traditional complement of independent volume and tone controls and a three-way selector switch, but updated with coil-split switching and Orange Drop tone capacitors.
Vintage-style tuners join a chrome Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece for outstanding resonance and sustain, while enlarged strap buttons keep your guitar secure throughout the set. Dark-cream pickguard and pickup rings are contrasted by black Max Grip speed knobs for optimum on-the-fly control manipulation.
Case and coverage
The LP Studio comes protected in a Gibson gig bag, includes a truss-rod wrench and owner's manual, and is backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson's 24/7/365 Customer Service.
