Overview

For full-throttle Les Paul thrills at a trimmed-down, no-nonsense price, look no further than the Les Paul Studio Satin. This guitar includes all the classic ingredients that have made the Les Paul Standard legendary since humbuckers first hit the scene in 1957, along with a familiar, played-in look and feel. Ever since its introduction more than a quarter of a century ago, the Les Paul Studio has proven a major favorite with guitarists looking for genuine Les Paul tone and performance in a down-to-business package that is light on frills, heavy on swagger and easy on the pocket. Now the Les Paul Studio Satin from Gibson USA brings the package together with legendary playability, two of Gibson' finest humbucking pickups, and the classic tonewood combination”including the maple top that' missing from many Studio models”that helped to make the Les Paul Standard famous in the first place. All this, and it looks great in your choice of Worn Cherry, Worn Brown, Blue Stain, Ebony Stain, Satin Yellow or Satin Fireburst, all in genuine nitrocellulose lacquer, with the pre-aged satin look and feel that so many guitarists prefer.

Just like the most revered Les Paul Standards of all time, the Les Paul Studio Satin starts with the classic tonewood combination of a mahogany body with solid carved maple top. Together, these woods offer outstanding tonal depth and richness from the mahogany, with superb clarity and œsnap from the maple. In this model, the strategic placement of several tone chambers enhances resonance while also reducing the guitar' overall weight considerably, without sacrificing an ounce of punch or sustain. And even in this more affordable instrument from Gibson USA, the glued-in, solid-mahogany neck is cut to the superior œquarter-sawn grain orientation for superior strength and optimum resonance transfer between neck and body. The neck is carved to a comfortably rounded ™50s profile that measures .818 at the 1st fret and .963 at the 12th. It is topped with a 22-fret fingerboard made from hard, brown baked maple, a wood selected for its sustain and bite. Traditional acrylic trapezoid inlays grace the board, but a lack of fingerboard and body binding help to keep costs down, while enhancing the raw, ready-to-rock look of this Studio model.

To make optimum use of all that sweet resonance and singing sustain, the Les Paul Studio Satin carries a pair of Gibson' best pickups. Updated from the acclaimed Burstbucker pickups that populate numerous instruments from Gibson Custom, the Burstbucker Pros on this guitar give you all the renowned warmth, growl and zing of genuine PAF humbuckers, with biting Alnico V magnets. The set includes a slightly overwound bridge pickup for searing lead tones, and both pickups feature wax-potted coils to squelch microphonic squeal at high volumes. Together, they provide everything from warm, vocal blues tones in the neck position, to snappy in-between settings, to phenomenal crunch and wail in the bridge position. To further maximize all that vibrational energy, Gibson includes its legendary Tune-o-matic bridge and stud-mounted wraparound tailpiece, along with a PLEK-cut Corian nut, and a set of vintage-style TonePros tuners.

Beautiful Simplicity

By Bob Esbanshade

from lancaster, pa

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Studio Satin Electric Guitar:

I just got this Gibson Les Paul Studio Satin Sunburst. I spent weeks pouring over reviews and specs and this is the model I finally decided on. I am glad I did. I think this is a beautiful guitar. I absolutely love the look of this guitar. I don't need a lot of bells a whistles,ie., bindings and flame tops,etc. This guitar looks and plays great. I personally love the kind of retro look. Besides how beautiful I find it to be, it plays and sounds great. I think it is a great buy. It has BURSTBUCKER PRO pickups, which I find to be a little brighter and less muddy than 490s. It has lots of guts but also a nice chime. This model comes with a PLEK-cut Corian nut and the intonation and set up about as good as they could be. I am very happy with the feel and playability of the neck. I have been playing it through my FENDER PRO JR., FENDER DELUXE, and VOX AC15, and it sounds great. It can be nice and clean, or it can crunch very nicely with just a little push. Great sound. This model is a very comfortable weight and is nicely balanced. Looks great, feels great, sounds great. I am sure you can spend three times as much on a fancier Les Paul, but I am glad i didn't. I'm glad I studied all the reviews and specs on all aspects of Les Pauls available, and I am very happy I choose this exact model after all the research. This model has some very high end features on a beautifully simple body. As an owner of lots of nice guitars and basses I highly recommend this exact model of the Les Paul Studio. I think it is a beautiful instrument a and great value for the price. Once again, a big thanks to the guys at Lancaster GC for helping get this guitar.

Classic Tone for Great value!

By Ryan Sansom

from Cleveland, OH

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Studio Satin Electric Guitar:

First and foremost, Chopper is the man here in Cleveland at GC! I have played nearly every Epiphone, Squier & Fender up through the $500 range. It was time to upgrade. I picked this up just before band practice yesterday, in the worn brown color (apparently not an option online). This guitar is GORGEOUS. And, it plays even better. The response was unbelieveable, it made me sound 10 times better than other guitars I own and have played. The pickups are screaming hot, but buttery and clear as well. I played slide in Open A on a song, and afterwards my bandmates were staring at me in disbelief. It was one of those moments. The guitar just sounded that &%#@ good.

My first Gibson

By Jacob Berta

from Peoria, IL

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Studio Satin Electric Guitar:

Had ordered a Epiphone plus top pro in desertburst with epi's new probucker pickups online. It was back ordered for two weeks, so I went to guitar center the next day to play some epiphones, wanting to see what the thing sounded like. They didn't have the exact one that I had ordered, but they did have another with the probuckers in it. It was decent sounding, probably a little better than pups that are in my G400. While there, I also wanted to check out the Gibsons, because frankly when looking at epiphones we really want to get the gibson, but they are very cost prohibitive. Billy at GC in peoria, handed me a new Satin Fireburst Studio with the new burstbuckers in it. The first thing I noticed was the lack of shine and no bindings. These studios are quite the no frills guitar. That was one of things that drew me to the epi's-all the high class lp appointments, but at a low cost. I played the satin finish fireburst for a while, and it just felt good. The satin finish opposed to the high gloss makes for a smoother playing surface on the neck, its just not quite as pretty, and the whole thing just felt more solid than the epi. The weight wasn't too bad, I held a LP traditional and this studio, and there was a very large difference in the weight, I can see why some guy will play this on stage too, that traditional weighed a ton! Now they didn't have any of the real high end epi's to try so its not a totally fair comparison, a $500 epi vs a $800 gibson, but I can safely say that it was definitely worth the extra money for the sound and construction quality of the gibson, even if it did not have all the shine and fancy bindings. At home, it sounded pretty good through my vox vt30, with its half-tube like sound. Took it to my buddy's house and played through his marshall half stack. Those burstbuckers sounded fantastic with tons of crunch. This was a solid state marshall, can't wait to hear it on a real honest to god tube amp! Overall, I was happy to take home my first gibson, and cancel the order on the epi. Although, now that I have a taste for a fine quality made in the USA guitar, i'm not sure I could go back.

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Studio Satin Electric Guitar:

Just bought this at the Guitar Center in N Paramus from JT and I couldn't be happier. The sound feel and quality are all amazing! Hard to beat that made in America sound from an icon like a Les Paul! For anyone seriously considering getting an heirloom quality guitar this one is hard to beat!

perfect

By karen doyle

from Sherman Oaks CA

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Studio Satin Electric Guitar:

Ahhh..finally Gibson made a guitar that's perfect for me. Unfortunately for all of you, Guitar Center put the WRONG information. First of all its a mahogany body with a MAPLE TOP, something new for the studio that they're doing with this model. Also, the MAIN THING about this guitar that makes it a steal, is that the pickups are BURSTBUCKER PROS. You're basically getting a standard disguised as a studio. Thanks GC for keeping this information from people.
