Overview

The arrival of the Gibson Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar in 1983 offered guitarists all the essential elements of a Les Paul Standard, including a carved top and humbucking pickups. Its simple yet elegant design quickly helped it become the most popular model in the Les Paul Series.

The Les Paul Studio Deluxe II '60s Electric Guitar raises the bar with the cutting-yet-rich tone of a 490R humbucking pickup in the neck position and a BurstBucker Pro humbucking pickup in the bridge position, which are mounted on a carved maple top with a mahogany back. Both pickups offer coil splitting for single-coil sounds and a boost circuit via push/push switching in the volume controls. œStraight Split coil-splitting offers pure single coil tone and differs from LP Standards and Studios that have a œSuper Tap coil-tap, which still has a small amount of humbucking. The boost circuit has a user-adjustable 10-dB boost for added power and frequency range for solos, single-note picking and dirty chording (depending on amp settings) and features true bypass that disengages the boost completely, ensuring pure passive Les Paul tone.

The hardware is finished in chrome including Grover tuners and Gibson's pioneering tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece. The Les Paul Studio Deluxe is dependable and affordable ” and is built without any compromises. The Gibson Les Paul comes with a hardshell case.

To Be Determined

By Craig

from Tucson Az

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe II '60s Electric Guitar:

I just picked up a Wine Red last week. When i got home, one of coil splitters did not work and the booster did not work either. Guitar Center ordered a replacement for me and i will see how it goes when i get the new one. I had an amazing deal on the guitar $899.95 and have been unable to find a price close to that. From the time i did get to play with the guitar, I would say the feel and tone of the guitar is great. For me, I will need to lower the action a little.

Great Gibson!

By Brian Shelley

from Lansing, Michigan

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe II '60s Electric Guitar:

This guitar plays awesome, stays beautifully in tune, has multiple tone options, and looks cool. I bought the Pelham Blue color and when I was looking at pics online, I couldn't tell that it was a metallic finish. Super cool! Gibson's website says that it is a discontinued color. I'm glad I got mine. Killer price for such a great guitar! Good job, Gibson.

My First Les Paul

By Wayne Miller

from Morristown, NJ

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe II '60s Electric Guitar:

After a decades of putting guitar playing on the back burner and mothballing my beat up 1964 Fender Jazzmaster that I bought in 1965, the urge to get back into playing hit me hard after strolling through the displays at Guitar Center. It was weird tinkering with several guitars because I hadn't played in so long. However, the Les Paul Studio Deluxe II 1960's in wine red caught my eye and ear immediately. Besides possessing a beautiful finish, I was impressed with its rich sound quality, sustain, light weight, and incredibly versatile electronics. The push-pull pots and the boost/bypass pot were awesome! These features made it easy to move away from the classic Fender single coil sound to the Studio because the ability to switch from double coil to single coil provides a close approximation to the fender sound. Also, the lighter weight of the Studio compared to the Les Paul Standard does nothing to minimize the rich Les Paul sound while providing the light weight associated with a Strat (which was my second choice). Being on a budget also made the decision between the Standard and the Deluxe a lot easier, So I traded in my Jazzmaster (for $1000!!!) and got the Les Paul three months ago.....and I am a happy camper.....playing blues licks and channeling Duane Allman slide work. The sound is awesome....even through the teeny weeny Fender Mustang I amp that I bought the same day. The Studio is not only a terrific instrument, I consider it a work of fine craftsmanship.
