  • Can't be dissapointed

    As reviewed by Sebastian on 6/11/2014

    Easily one of my favorite Les Pauls in the range -- for a Gibson guitar this one is practically "affordable". The guitar feels great, it truly yells "value"! With many fantastic features, I wouldn't say this guitar is that far away from my Les Paul Standard. Equipped with the "Modern classic" 490R/490T pickups (Which I think are fantastically voiced for this guitar), this guitar really sings, whether you're play some clean blues, or more gain filled tones. The guitar is extremely versatile, for it has coil splitting enabled, giving you a brighter tone; tones with the hint of a single-coil. ,y only issue is that there was this one little white spot on the guitar, it wasn't really visible, but I, very picky with finishes. Of course, that spot is now gone after some cleaning. I hope my review helped anyone looking for a more affordable, versatile Gibson Les Paul. I think with a guitar like this you can't really go wrong.

  • Phenomenal Instrument

    As reviewed by Harrison on 7/28/2014

    I bought my 2014 Les Paul Studio just a few weeks ago. I wanted to wait to write the review so I could have some time to get to know the guitar. Overall, this thing is a beast. I can tackle Jazz, Heavy metal, and every genre in between. The tones that come out of here are just incredible. The bridge pickup has a nice, bright tone to it with moderate output. The neck pickup absolutely has absolutely blown me away. It has a very rich, dark, and clear sound. I have played many guitars where the neck pickup sounds muddy and lacks sustain. This guitar is amazing. I have never played a guitar with such clarity and sustain as this. The Push/Pull volume Pots are a cool feature. It is really interesting to get the single coil tones out of this guitar. Combined with the 3 way selector switch, there are eight possible combinations of pickup sounds. The fretwork on this guitar is outstanding. I checked every fret in 3 places with my luthier's fret rocker and they are absolutely flawless, perfectly level. Even with a very low action, there is no buzzing or fretting out at all, even on the hardest bends. Another major pro to this guitar is the size of the strap buttons. As the specifications indicate, they are quite large. I have not had a problem with the guitar falling off of the strap buttons at all. This is a very nice feature. I only have a few complaints about this guitar, and most of them are just my personal preference, not anything that hinders functionality. First, I really do not like the color of the pickguard and humbucker rings. At a later date, I may swap them out for a more classic looking cream color. Second, the selector switch is placed right in the way of where my right arm sits when I am doing any kind of finger tapping. I know that this is just part of the classic Gibson design, but it's still in the way. The third thing that irritates me about this instrument is that the tuning machine on the 4th string did not match the other ones. The one on the 4th string is a Gibson deluxe tuner, while all of the other ones are Klusen deluxe machines. This doesn't effect playability at all, but I did find it interesting that it didn't match. Most people probably would not notice it. Last of all, and probably most importantly, the 3rd string tuning machine seems a little loose and occasionally slips out of tune. This is the only thing that I have found is wrong with this guitar as far as functionality is concerned, and I could probably take it in and get it repaired or replaced at no cost (thanks to Guitar Center's Pro Coverage). Other than that, I love this guitar, it sounds great, it looks awesome, and it feels amazing. If you are looking to get a real Les Paul on a budget, look no farther, this is the best guitar I've ever owned and without a doubt one of the best I have ever played.

  • And It Sings!!

    As reviewed by Ethan on 11/10/2014

    Gibson has done an amazing job of stripping down the Paul without sacrificing tone. This guitar means business without the use of flashy binding or AAA tops, yet it still looks just right. The Sustain is awesome. Possibly one of the best deals out there when it come to getting beautiful record worthy tone for about 1K. Another thing I must note is how easy its is to play the action is insanely good. Playing large chords on this guitar is like slicing through butter. Great tone and playability, made incredibly affordable.
