Dunno how it could get better?

By GscottH

from Iowa City, Iowa

well, i got this guitar for christmas. i picked it up and was shocked at how light this beast was! so it doesnt put a lot of stress on your shoulder when you play live shows so you can keep going even longer. i also like the feel of the neck how its a laminate kind of feel. also, the Marshall half stack w/ digi effects and this guitar sound REALLY really great together. 5/5

How can this be?

By Guitarnado

from Snellville, GA

There are not enough words to describe the value of this guitar. The pickups are way hotter than I ever imagined. The bridge pup just wants to howl. It's like a caged tiger that wants to be set free. I rarely use the bridge pickups in my other guitars, but with this Studio Les Paul, playing through the bridge pup is a REQUIREMENT. The guitar shipped in the case with no plastic wrap on anything. It was nearly perfectly setup from the factory. I made some minor adjustments to the intonation and it now plays perfectly. The tone is amazing. The only thing I would prefer to be different is the basic design of upper fret access. There are some guitar solos that require the upper register, but getting your hand around where the neck joins the body can be a challenge. But this is true of all Pauls and quite frankly, it isn't enough to dissuade me from buying one of the best guitars ever designed and manufactured. Best of all, you can make sure that you are helping an American keep his job. Buy American! Buy Gibson! Buy this Les Paul!

Les Paul Studio Faded Maple

By Teddy Bear

from Waterboro, ME

Nice. Really light. Pretty much set up right out of the box. Tune, plug and play. Unlike other manufacturers there is no clear plastic covering over the pick guard or pick ups. That lead me to believe at first that this was a return sent to me as new. But I guess Gibson ships them this way unbeknown to me. Also be aware that the inside lining of the guitar case is a creamy white color. Looks good, just different. Anyway sounds great, plays great, get one.

Best Guitar Ever

By sam

from lake zurich

I got this guitar last week and i cant put it down the pickups are amazing, the tone quality is insane, the sustain is awesome. This guitar tunes up so easily and stays tuned for along time. the case the guitar comes with is really good no room at all for your guitar to move around in or get damaged. This is the best guitar i have ever bought. With these pickups it doesn't matter what type of music you play it will sound great with this guitar. you would be a fool not to buy this guitar if your looking for a les paul around this price.

Great Guitar for the Money

By Josh L.

from Raleigh, NC

I bought this guitar about 2 weeks ago. I am normally a Fender guy through and through but have always wanted a Gibson. This guitar is totally worth it. It is one of the most versatile guitars i have ever played. The sound and feel is amazing and the price is for sure worth it. So far, this has been the best guitar i have ever bought.

Smokin Guitar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By Dush Bagalow

from Doorchester MN

I have had the guitar for 2 weeks now and I can hardly put it down. I love the bridge pickup quite a bit, the clean sounds good and even breaks up a little bit which I like because it sounds great for rock, the gain channel has very much sustain and clarity and is also very smooth. The guitar itself is very comfortable to play with a strap, the action was good right out of the box and the hardshell case is very nice as well. Overall, lots of bang for your buck.
