High-performance updates and an affordable price make this Les Paul a must-have.
The Les Paul Studio has been a popular choice of hard-working guitarists everywhere ever since its introduction in 1983. Now, Gibson USA brings increased sonic versatility and performance upgrades to a new Les Paul Studio as part of its big 2013 Year of Les Paul celebrations. 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. The 2013 Les Paul Studio looks stunning in your choice of colors, all in high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer.
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 Gibsons 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 USAs 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 a set of high-quality TonePros vintage-style tuners ensure smooth, accurate tuning.
Each guitar includes a a gig bag, owners manual and truss-rod wrench.

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Studio Gold Top Left-Handed Electric Guitar:
Mine shipped direct from the factory. I am happy with the guitar but it had the worst factory setup I've ever seen on a guitar. I do my own adjustments so no biggie but I was shocked that a guitar this expensive shipped with the strings so far off the fretboard.
