      Gibson Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar (H25218)

Les Paul performance with a modern, no-frills attitude and hot humbucker with coil-splitting.

Since 1983, Gibson USA has been proving not only that less is sometimes more, but also that less can sometimes knock your socks off – when it comes in the form of the popular no-nonsense Les Paul Studio model, at least. Originally designed as a model for studio artists but adopted wholeheartedly by countless players of all stripes, the Les Paul Studio combines stripped-down appointments with the full tonal splendor and unrivaled playability of a Les Paul Standard at a significant financial savings.

All the elements of the legendary Les Paul Standard are still there, including that fat and sweet maple-and-mahogany tone through two genuine Gibson humbucking pickups with push/pull coil-splitting on the volume controls for plenty of tonal variety. By eliminating a little of the window dressing – namely, building the guitar without binding around the body top or fingerboard, and applying an elegant gold silkscreened logo in place of an inlay – the Les Paul Studio weighs in at a price that players have found irresistible for three decades.

Crucial elements of the Les Paul Studio's design include the carved maple top and mahogany body, glued-in mahogany neck with back-angled headstock, ebony fingerboard, Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece – all design points that have been making Les Pauls the most desirable tone monsters available since the late 1950s. For electronics, a set of Gibson's 500T and 496R Alnico humbucking pickups squeeze every drop of tone from the instrument.

With these classic ingredients, the Les Paul Studio gives you all the sonic versatility you could ask for, from sultry, warm bluesy tones to powerful crunch to sizzling lead tones. Finally, the Les Paul Studio is supremely playable too, thanks to its '60s neck profile and a chambered mahogany body that reduces the weight while enhancing resonance, making it outstandingly comfortable strapped on or seated.

  • Great Guitar

    As reviewed by Chuco on 4/9/2011

    I purchased this guitar almost a year ago (4/18/2010) at my local Guitar Center. The simple black and white scheme appealed to me as it is different than the typical gold/chrome hardware on most. Also, this is the only studio model with an ebony fretboard. The guitar set up is great, no adjustment required. The finish is perfect, although the serial number on the headstock is a little hard to read because it is partially covered with laquer. The knobs were a little stiff at first, but after about a month of use have loosened up. This thing stays in tune very well. Most important of all this thing sounds fantastic. A year later I am still extremely happy with this guitar, money very well spent.

  • Simple looks, amazing quality and tone.

    As reviewed by Ryan on 5/26/2011

    I found one of these in GC in lawrencevile and for some reason I felt like it was perfect for me.. But anyways I picked it up and plugged it into a Blackstar series one 45. The 500T screamed some amazing tones on a metal, an AC/DC/Airbourne type, or bluesy setting! What versatility! The 496R has great creamy tones when you roll back some gain and the tone knob, perfect for blues! For some reason I've always imagined getting a Les Paul studio in white with a ebony board and black hardware. I never knew Gibson would make something as wonderful as this. This will definitely be my next target purchase.

  • save your money.

    As reviewed by ryan on 8/23/2011

    I owned two of these. both broke in the same exact spot on the headstock from the tension of the strings. I'm sorry but Gibsons quality is terrible nowadays. Even Epiphone, Gibson overseas brand.has a lot more quality than Gibson itself,for a fraction of a Gibson price.hell even Squiers beat the quality of this! don't buy this just because it says "Gibson" on the headstock. Think before you buy.
