OVERVIEW

A high-performance workhorse.

The 2016 Les Paul Studio HP is the supercharged counterpart of the traditional Les Paul Studio, and introduces an advanced set of premium, high-performance features to the format, including a new and exclusive fast-access heel, developed specifically for the Gibson USA High Performance lineup, to allow unprecedented access to the high notes - which, combined with the new soloist neck width, provides the fastest and most comfortable Les Paul Studio neck you’ve ever played.

Titanium metal for the saddles and the adjustable zero-fret nut delivers a bright, crisp tone, while being virtually indestructible and ensuring total, personalized control over the action. A pair of 490R and 498T humbuckers delivers true Gibson Les Paul tones, while genuine mother of pearl inlays add to the guitar’s premium level of quality. Includes hardshell case.

    Comments about Gibson 2016 Les Paul Studio HP Electric Guitar:

    G Force system sucks. It works great WHEN it works. The worse thing is that Gibson refuses to send you normal tuners when you are sick of there Gforce ones and putting regular tuners on voids the warranty for the rest of your guitar. There is no warning for the Gforce tuners. When they go bad, your screwed all the way for about a week.

      Comments about Gibson 2016 Les Paul Studio HP Electric Guitar:

      Received the 2016 Gibson Les Paul Studio HP in fine order just as every guitar I have received as a gift from my wife or purchased myself has arrived. Musician's Friend has never disappointed.
      First the Bad News:
      The guitar and case are impressive in appearance at first glance, but after a couple of hours of playing, it soon became very apparent the G-Force Tuning system leaves a bit to be desired. I use a lot of heavy bending and heavy gauge strings. The system often struggled finding proper pitch and it searched unsuccessfully sometimes and ultimately settled for out of pitch tuning. It might be a good system in theory (jury's still out), but in practice, not there yet. This was most frustrating while trying to record tracks and trying to keep ideas flowing.
      Further the volume and tone knobs were all crooked and wobbled when rotated, they were all set at different elevations (height) from the body of the guitar and the volume knobs would fall off when using the push/pull coil splitting feature. I picked the knobs up off the floor almost every time I used them and I found this most disappointing from a manufacture like Gibson. I returned the guitar two days after receiving it, again thank you Musicians Friend your customer service, it has been stellar in my numerous purchases and this was the first guitar I have returned.
      Second the Good News:
      I loved the coil splitting feature, this in combination with the 490R and 498T pickups created an abundance of tonal capability. The guitar played fast and smooth, nice neck, like the added width and the reach to the upper frets. Paint job was flawless and the Granadillo fingerboard played very fast and comfortable. Ditch the G-Force system and afford better quality control on the volume and tone knob fit and installation and you will have a player willing to try Gibson again sometime in the near future.
