Overview

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 2013 Les Paul Studio combines stripped-down appointments with the full tonal splendor and unrivaled playability of a Les Paul Standard.

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. 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' design include the carved maple top and mahogany body, glued-in mahogany neck with back-angled headstock, granadillo 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' 498T and 490R Alnico humbucking pickups squeeze every drop of tone from the instrument, and now feature coil-taps for an even broader range of tonal possibilities.

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 slim-taper 60's neck profile and a chambered mahogany body that reduces the weight while enhancing resonance, making it outstandingly comfortable strapped on or seated. Includes case.

Features
  • Mahogany body with a carved maple top
  • 24.75" Scale mahogany 60's slim-taper set neck
  • Granadillo fretboard with trapezoid inlay and 22 medium frets
  • Gibson 490R humbucking neck pickup with coil-split
  • Gibson 498T humbucking bridge pickup with coil split
  • Individual volume and tone controls, 3-way pickup selector
  • Tune-o-matic bridge
  • Grover vintage-style tuning machines
  • Includes case

    Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Studio Left-Handed Electric Guitar:

    This is the real deal. However, the axe being reviewed is actually a 2012 radiant red model. The guitar coming out of the box is without any obvious imperfection(s). Set-up is imminently playable. Intonation is spot on. Every fret, every string, every note - no problem. Perfect? For those with OCD and other attention to perfection, one may be able to find something. For those who want a fine instrument, the Studio is one to own. MF is also to be commended for their customer service from inquiry to delivery.

      Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Studio Left-Handed Electric Guitar:

      gorgeous finish, like the trans paint (wine red), comfortable to handle, didn't find it too heavy, pity I can't just click my strap locks into the stock buttons, but trivial issue. can't believe I got this for the crazy price, and I do mean crazy, bargain of a lifetime...

        Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Studio Left-Handed Electric Guitar:

        An iconic instrument . . . with only two things they didn't get right:

        1. Out-of-the-box I had to have the guitar serviced. The truss rod had to be adjusted. There is still a sligh buzz on the thick strings at the first fret.

        2. Mine is an all-black Studio model with perfectly polished chrome hardware. Why on earth do they put the headstock lettering "Gibson" and "Les Paul Model" in gold? I've seen Gibsons with silver lettering; I cannot understand why they wouldn't notice or care about this!

        I've been wanting a Les Paul for a long time, and finally decided to empty out my wallet on this. I received this guitar in tune and ready to play and let me tell you it sounds amazing, this is by far a beautiful guitar at an amazing value and a definite keeper for my collection, i would definitely recommend this guitar to any blues or classic rock player!!!!!
