OVERVIEW

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

The Les Paul Studio Deluxe T 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. 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 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.

Notable features
A user-adjustable 10-dB boost for added power and frequency range for solos, single-note picking and dirty chording (depending on amp settings)
Traditional '60s-style neck shape
True bypass: disengaging boost completely removes active circuit, ensuring pure passive Les Paul tone
Super '57 humbucking pickup in the bridge position. Classic 57 humbucking pickup in the neck position
Easy-to-use push/push pots engage coil-splits and boost circuit
Straight Split coil-splitting offers pure single coil tone
Non-locking Grover tuners
Includes hardshell case

I come from a mainly Fender Strat background, but got my feet wet in 2012 with a Faded Studio Model with Burstbucker Pros, and really love it. I prefer fat chunky necks and a 12" radius over most of the American Strat Standards which have thin C necks and 9.25" radius, so this won out over a Fender American Deluxe V neck I was checking out. I'm on a beer budget with a Champagne taste, and wasn't willing to dish out big $$ for a Standard LP or Traditional, so I found this which proved to be a very nice compromise, and of course scored it for a nice price over President's day.
It's bittersweet since at last minute I changed my mind to get the Blue over the Burst. When it arrived, I was happy, but not as much as I had hoped with this color choice. Unfortunately, this one came shipped with a broken pickup cover and a small ding in the back. How the heck does that happen even with a QC checklist inside. Well, the sweet part is, I did return it and was able to get the color that I really wanted anyway. The HoneyBurst is more than I had hoped for. It's fit and finish is amazing with some Maple flame on the top, and the wood back simply looks better to me than the blue's black back. My only gripe is that the guitar is perfect other than of all things, the top strap Phillips screw is a bit boogered up. That bothers me because it's the first thing I saw an otherwise a 10 on fit and finish. Does MF open these up and throw the wrong size screwdriver on them to ensure they are tight? This was the same issue on the blue, but I didn't mention it.
Now, about the guitar, the smell of the fresh nitro smells like caramel!! I want to literally eat this guitar! I researched the components and found that these 57' pickups had excellent ratings. Well, they sound great, and not muddy on the neck PUP like my busrtbuckers. The splitting and DB boost are neat attributes, but for now full bucking is my style. If you can grab this on sale, it's a great guitar for the $$$!

Nice looking guitar but I had the same issues as another reviewer on here. Microphonic pickup, poor grounding. Twangy sound when you did hammer ons. that just rang forever. Nut was not cut properly.
I cant believe something like this leaves the gibson plant especially for an instrument in this price range.
Thanks to MF for taking it back. I am scared to try another especially since the other guy on her Lucinda
got two that were bad.

    Extremely happy with this beautiful instrument! Finish and craftsmanship is perfect on body and neck. Frets are nicely finished/dressed. Pickups sound great, and all control knobs function as they should in all modes. As others mention, the caramel-vanilla aroma of the finish is delicious. Case is very nice too. And a nice touch: Gibson includes a photo postcard of the actual model at the factory. Glad to see that Gibson is still capable of producing fine world-class instruments!

      Comments about Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe T Electric Guitar:

      I just wanted to say I bought the Epiphone version of the same guitar...I played both for over an hour. Where I bought mine the Gibson was Substantially more and the Epiphone (Cherry Burst it what its called on mine) was Substantially less. I could not distinguish one from the other....my guess is your paying for the parent company name....

      Poor Quality Control

      Comments about Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe T Electric Guitar:

      I'll start off by saying I really liked the looks of the guitar and that's where it will end. I sent the first one back after it had a faulty coil tap switch. The second one I was sent had more issue's than the first. A static or ground issue when touching the back of the neck and around the body causing a crackle/buzz. A pickup issue that seemed due to a micro phonic bridge or pickup. The frets on the guitar were sharp and some what stuck out from the neck. What I would expect from a much cheaper guitar. And lastly at the top of the neck behind the tuning keys it looked like there were older vintage tuners once on it cause all six of them had marks/dents around them. Like when they built this guitar they used an old neck they had laying around and used that without sanding down properly?? both brand new guitars.. I don't know about that but the second one was sent back too. Gibson quality something I always admired has really let me down. Musicians Friend though was very helpful and understanding of my situation and let me return both of them. I was not impressed at all and own 3 Les Paul's already.

              Comments about Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe T Electric Guitar:

              Gibson has done some funky stuff in naming these guitars as I've seen with a few other models. This is the same guitar and specs as the Studio Deluxe T, which confirmed with Gibson though emails. Yet, they boast different price points. Interesting, If you are looking at this guitar, check both names and get the cheaper one, they are the same.
              I bought this one in Honeyburst to add to my only other faded studio Gibson. I got a great one, fit and finish was perfect, nice brown Gibson Case and the gloss nitro really looks amazing. I think I had equal excitement looking at this guitar on a stand from my couch as playing it. Although this has some "Modern" appointments, like the boost in particular and the splitting, I've found spending a little time with all of these features really makes this a powerhouse guitar. The boost can push the brilliant single coil tapped tones and can also balance out one pickup on full humbucker and one on split. This sports a 60's slim neck which I didn't read into much since I wanted this one, but compared to my older faded studio, its a bit smaller and doesn't have that baseball bat feel. I was a bit concerned about this since most of my Fender's have a Slim neck and really was liking a fat one like on the Studio. Well, after hours under my belt, I like the neck but don't love it. If you read up, many of the new Gibson's, most have these necks. There are so many Les Pauls to choose from around the 800-1500 price range, I feel confident that whoever picks one of these up will like it (get it on SALE!!). I would have to recommend the Honeyburst over the Caribbean blue, simply because of the back of guitar Finish. (I've seen both)

              Comments about Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe T Electric Guitar:

              I am really a Fender guy and (Strat and Tele) but many years ago I had an Epiphone LP that I had 57' PAF's installed on. It was a sweeeeet sounding guitar but I sold it to help pay for a 57' Strat reissue. I saw this LP on an open box special and jumped on it thinking if I did not like it I would return it. I like it... The 57' PU's on it sound amazing and the mahogany body while heavier than a Fender is not unmanageable. The body resonates well and I can actually practice with it unplugged. I did spend 15 buckaroos and put a pick guard on it. Other than that the fit and finish was flawless and the nitrocellulose smells like vanilla. Sustain is fantastic and the electronics are so versatile it is really three guitars in one with the Humbuckers, coil split and mid boost.
