    A stripped-down Les paul with power to spare and automated tuners.

    The 2013 Les Paul Studio blends timeless tonewoods and components with improved comfort, powerful humbucking pickups with built-in coil-splitting switching for the added versatility of single-coil tones, and the classic looks that define it as a genuine Gibson Les Paul. To ram it all full speed into the 21st century, this 2013 Les Paul Studio comes with the optional Min-ETune™ automated “robot” tuning.

    The 2013 Les Paul Studio is tone-assured right from the start, thanks to a foundation of the traditional tonewoods that helped to make the Les Paul Standard legendary when it first arrived six decades ago. A carved solid maple top lends bite and articulation to the sound, while a select mahogany back—treated with Gibson’s new modern weight relief pattern to increase playing comfort and enhance resonance—contributes superb warmth and depth.

    A solid, quarter-sawn mahogany neck is glued in and carved in the fast 60s SlimTaper™ profile, and topped with a rich brown Granadillo fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets and traditional trapezoid inlays. In keeping with the stripped-down Studio ethos, the body and fingerboard are left unbound, but the 2013 retains elegant touches in its pickguard, hot-stamped truss-rod cover, and black or gold speed knobs, depending on finish. Classic Gibson construction ensures optimum playability, too, along with traditional specs like a 24 ¾” scale length, a 1 11/16” width across the PLEK-cut Corian™ nut, and a 12-inch fingerboard radius for smooth, easy bending.

    A pair of Gibson USA’s Modern Classics™ humbucking pickups prime the 2013 Les Paul Studio for unparalleled tonal versatility. Both are made in the image of the legendary PAF humbucker, with Alnico magnets and 42-AWG wire, but adapted for the demands of contemporary players. A 490R in the neck position offers vintage warmth and throaty blues tones, while a hotter 498T in the bridge belts out all the scorch, sizzle and sustain you require. Furthermore, both are wired for coil splitting, with individual push-pull tone-control switching to tap authentic single-coil tones, which are even wired for hum cancelling in the middle position.

    The innovative pairing of a Tune-o-Matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece ensure solid sustain and precise intonation, while the automated Min-ETune System ensures smooth, accurate tuning.

    Min-ETune™ automated “robot” tuners
    Min-ETuneTM is a small compact battery powered tuning unit that sits on the back of the guitar — a mighty enhancement to an already great instrument. No need for screws, wiring or routing, in fact the system is hardly visible from the front of the guitar. You can still adjust the tuning pegs manually or turn on the Min-ETuneTM to choose from 12 popular tunings or program 6 of your own.

    Always In Tune
    A guitar with Min-ETuneTM looks the same, feels the same, plays the same and rocks the same - it’s just always in tune. Adjust to other instruments' imperfect tuning with Reference Tuning and keep that harmony going. Perfect for home, studio and gigging: The internal lithium battery lasts for 80 to 100 tunings on just one charge. Rock longer with the fast and accurate Min-ETuneTM, tuning your guitar in just 3 seconds and 1 strum.

    In Perfect Harmony
    Digital tuners that emulate open tunings are available BUT because the Min-ETuneTM physically turns the tuners, the system is always organic and natural. There’s no delay, no dampening and no dead sound — just the natural vibration of guitar strings in total harmony with the vibrations coming out of the amp producing ringing harmonics and powerful sustain.

    Rock Out
    With the new Min-ETuneTM equipped guitars all you have to do is PUSH the button, STRUM, get TUNED and ROCK out. Min-ETuneTM is a huge boost to the live performer, the touring professional, the experienced enthusiast, the beginner and novice player alike.

    Save time and money in the studio because the tuning system is so fast and accurate. And Min-ETuneTM is a priceless tool for writing creatively with its instant access to the sounds your muse demands. Perfect for the professional – Min-ETuneTM will have you rocking around the clock.

    Travel light to your next gig or across the globe, just one guitar does the work of multiple guitars in different tunings – perfect for the enthusiast. Keep on rocking and experiment with a wide range of alternate tunings or program your own and save it forever with Min-ETuneTM.

    Spend less time learning to tune and more time learning to play the guitar. Perfect for the beginner – Min-ETuneTM puts a variety of tunings at your fingertips. You are ready to rock? With Min-ETuneTM you can even experiment with open tunings, something that usually takes years of practice.

    More than just efficient, affordable, versatile, and powerful, Min-ETuneTM is truly a creative tool that you can’t do without.

    Each guitar includes a black Gibson hardshell case, owner’s manual and truss-rod wrench.

          Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Studio Min-ETune Electric Guitar:

          I have owned many Les Paul Electric Guitars from the Custom, Standard, Traditional and Classic. This is my first Studio. I always thought the Studio Less Paul was a lower quality guitar, but my new Gibson 2013 Les Paul Studio Min-ETune Electric Guitar with the vintage burst has all the qualities of every Gibson I've ever owned plus the push pull knobs that allow me to change from double coil single coil pickups add even more tones most Les Pauls don't have. I would recommend this guitar to players of all levels.
