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 III Electric Guitar raises the bar with the Super ™57 and Classic ™57 humbucking pickups, 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. œStraight Split coil-splitting offers pure single coil tone and differs from LP Standards and Studios that have a œSuper 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 Les Paul Studio Deluxe features a traditional-spec SlimTaper '60s neck that offers a comfortable playing experience for which Les Paul models of that era are famous. The hardware is finished in chrome including Gibson's pioneering tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece. The Les Paul Studio Deluxe is dependable, affordable, and is built without any compromises.
Classic ˜57 and Super ™57 Humbucking Pickups
Since their introduction in the late 1950s, Gibson' famous "Patent Applied For" humbuckers have been considered the ultimate pickup because of their smooth, velvety tone. The Super ™57 uses slightly overwound balanced coils, exactly like the original PAFs of the late 1950s that accidentally received a few additional turns of wire. They are the perfect bridge-position companion to the ™57 Classic, delivering just a little more of "the sweet stuff" without sacrificing any of the rich vintage tone. The Super ™57 humbucker features the same enamel-like coated wiring, Alnico II magnet and maple spacers as in the original models, achieving a creamy, smooth output that sounds rich and full whether they'e being played clean or overdriven. The Super ™57 pickups are so authentic that they even carry the original "Patent Applied For" decal on the baseplate. All of them come with braided, two-conductor wiring and are fully wax potted to eliminate any chance of microphonic feedback.

I love this guitar, however mine came with grounding issues. The only option that given was a return from Musicians Friend. Which is something I did not want. I love this guitar. So off to the shop it goes.
