Advanced wiring gives this one an expanded palette of powerful sounds.

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. “Straight Split” coil-splitting offers pure single coil tone and differs from LP Standards and Studios that have a “Super 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.

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

      This guitar has all the stuff I love about Les Paul guitars and nothing that I have always disliked about them! I love Fender necks and this is just as easy to play for me. Despite the fact that I have big hands, the late 50's neck is way too chunky and uncomfortable for me to play for any length of time. The tapered 60's neck profile is super comfortable.

      The pickup combo is really nice. The 490R/Burstbucker sound great together.

      I grew up in the 80's and 90's so Slash was a huge inspiration for me; I have been searching years for something like his tone. Years ago I set out on a quest to find a les paul that I wouldn't just turn around and sell after realizing I didn't like it. There has always been something about LPs I didn't like, usually the neck, playability and balance just felt off to me.

      I spent a day in GC in Concord CA about a month ago. I played several Epiphones, a couple Gibsons and at the last minute I decided to get this one down off the top shelf. I instantly loved it and that's when you know it's time to consider! I don't buy guitars sight unseen, twice I've not liked the result.

      First of all - the weight: the modern weight relief makes this guitar about the same weight as my American Strat HSS.

      Second - the neck feels a lot like a Strat neck but it just feels really good to grab a hold of; you can shred on it or dig in and get chunky with it and it's all comfortable.

      Third - on this guitar you have two push-push coil taps and boost which you can adjust through the back plate. The coil tapped tone, clean, is really unique and chimey, classic single coil tone. As humbuckers, the Burstbucker has that edgy rhythm tone that "whips" on high gain when you palm mute or rake the strings, and the 490R gets you soaring lead sound that actually cuts through on rhythm parts too, it's not muddy at all.

      This is a really flexible guitar. It was between this one and an Epiphone that was cheaper that I didn't like as much. I went with this guitar because I know it will hold its value (after selling previous Gibbys) and it's got great features.

      Finally, the flame - pretty nice on a guitar in this price range. I don't know whether it is A, AA, AAA, etc... but for the price I wasn't really expecting any kind of flame at all so it's more of a (beautiful) bonus than anything else, and the grain on the back of the guitar is also gorgeous. The whole instrument is very well finished and set up with the exception of one tiny finishing blemish on the neck, but I can get past that.

      Highly recommended if you are looking for a flexible guitar that gives you great LP tone.

            Unfortunately the guitar arrived with one of the push/pull pots frozen in place so it was returned two days later. I tried it out briefly and it sounded fine. I am looking forward to the replacement and will update then.

              You will not regret the purchase of this Les Paul. The guitar is so well crafted that your playing ability will soar to new levels very quickly....simply because of how well designed and built it is. Trust me...learning on a poorly built import is more difficult than learning on a well built instrument like this one. I wasted time and hundreds of greenbacks with "lesser" electric guitars. Those things only made learning and playing more difficult! Don't waste your time with junk.... This beauty plays like silk....and sounds like heaven!

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

              Have owned my Wine Red version for four months now--my first Gibson since my Explorer in the mid-80's. This is a very versatile guitar that can make a decent player sound great. Liked the slender 60's neck MUCH better than the chunky 50's version, and the balance is excellent.

              Coil splitting provides a wide variety of tones. The split-mode offers a unique take on the single coil sound--think Telecaster over Stratocaster. My AmSt Strat can't sound like a LP, but the Studio Deluxe can play on the "twangy" end of the spectrum. The boost feature is a perfect mix with the split-coils because in single coil mode you lose a little volume. In humbucker mode the boost will not only increase volume, but also adds dirt--which can be amazing or annoying, depending on what you're looking for. The humbuckers are what you'd expect from a Les Paul--biting at the bridge, fat and mellow at the neck, and right in between with both mixed in. The real fun is when you start mixing either one in single-coil mode. Lots of tones.

              Speed knobs and electronics work perfectly with no crackling or noise. Tuners are solid and worry free (though locking tuners would be ideal).

              My ONLY complaint with this guitar would be very minor finish imperfections. The finish is slightly rough where there neck meets the body--I've seen this with various Gibson LPs. There was also a minor "chip" on the edge of the fretboard, around the fifth fret. I would have chalked this up to shop wear, but it looks like it came that way because it's finished like the rest of the neck. Neither of these things affected playability or sound, so they weren't a big deal to me, but if perfection is important to you, you'll want to be picky.

              Overall, a fantastic way to own a "professional-grade" Les Paul with coil-splitting capabilities at a decent price. This one's a keeper.

                  Love the guitar, but the set up from the factory was terrible. After taking it to be set up and spending $$ to have it done by a professional, it's fantastic.

                      I have a '75 Les Paul Custom and a '77 Strat that I bought used many years ago and both are now worth 2-3k each. Both play great but my wife suggested I consider getting something for gigs that wasn't so valuable. (What a wonderful woman!) Having had a guitar stolen at a gig years ago and thinking about all the close calls and stuff that happens - kids running on stage at events after an invitation by the front, over served patrons at club gigs etc. etc. - I agreed. (Did I tell you I have a great wife!?)

                      Was looking for something less expensive but after researching it I decided to jump up in price and get this. Never bought a guitar sight unseen before so I was a little unsure but I love this guitar. Spent more than I planned but it does everything I need sound wise.

                      Playing mostly classic rock and R&B covers where I switch back and forth between the Strat and Les Paul depending on the song and band I'm playing with. With the coil taps I can get both sounds from the same guitar. I know people say it's not a true Fender sound but it's close enough and it works for me. As I keep experimenting with the coil taps and blending the pickups I think I'll be able to get even closer. Haven't used the boost control much yet but I'm sure I will over time.

                      Had to tweak the intonation, set the pickup heights etc. like anyone that gets a new axe but now I have it right where I want it.

                      And this guitar is beautiful! Got the heritage cherry burst and the flame is gorgeous. As for the neck I think my 75 Custom is a little thinner but this one is very nice for me. And it's lighter than my Custom which my back really appreciates. Also a very nice case.

                      Great playing, great sounding, beautiful guitar at a reasonable price.

                      after i tweeked the set up (truss adjustment, raised the neck pickup, lowered the bridge, ckecked intonation was ok... it was, and new strings), this guitar rocks!it's natural LP tones are warm, bright, and true. the push/push controls add so much versatility!! the boost takes a guitar who's controls only go to 10, and kicks it up to 11! the color is rich, grains are subtle, and the weight is the same as every other LP i've played. the only difference between this guitar, and a standard, is cosmetics... black: pickup binding, toggle, and control knobs. biggest difference, no contour binding.

                        I have several guitars, and I play all of them fairly frequently. But after a few minutes of playing the others, I always come around to picking up my Studio Deluxe II. It's beautiful (mine is Wine Red), feels great in my hands, requires almost no effort to fret cleanly, and has a wonderful range of tones thanks to the Burstbucker Pro at the bridge, the 490R at the neck, coil splitting, and the active circuit. Intonation and action were perfect right out of the box. Fit and finish are top notch. This is truly a professional quality instrument with great features at an even better price. Rarely am I as happy with a purchase as I am with this.

                          This axe is a real sleeper in the Gibson Les Paul line. With the true coil splits and the boost control, this is a guitar that can pretty much handle anything. Now, don't expect a Les Paul to sound like a Stratocaster in coil tap mode. But.... it does have a very good single coil sound. The boost feature is great. Saves me a pedal on my pedal board. Very few guitars come out of the box ready for me to play. All this guitar needed was a change of strings to Ernie Balls Regular Slinky and the tone is great. Lots of value in this axe. A bit lighter than my older Les Pauls, but still screams like any good Les Paul should. I feel this is a guitar you will keep. Beautiful rosewood fingerboard and action is great.
