It sounds as great as it looks.

Finally got one

By Mark-_MhtQ

from Billings, Montana

I?m a drummer but have always wanted to learn guitar. I?m self-taught and consider myself as a basement musician. I have always wanted a Les Paul so I did some research and decided on this one. What a beautiful and nice sounding guitar. I?ve had absolutely no tuning problems or any other problems for that matter. I?ve always heard that the Les Paul was heavy but this feels great. Just my opinion. I am very impressed and pleased with this guitar. It looks and sounds great. I have no regrets on spending this kind of money for something that I will enjoy for a long time.

one hell of a guitar

By purple_haze999

I once read that it was named the "studio" due to the high demand for it in studios. whether that is true or not, i can easily see why there would be high demand for it. It sound is as beautiful as its looks. and the price is amazing for such a wonderfull guitar. i have seen no problems with mine at all. the only problem i see is that its easy to get finger prints all over it. but who cares?!...its about the amazing sound, not the looks.

Saw the natural finish and was immediately hooked. Couldn't believe it...AA maple, chambered body, essentially a LP Supreme for half the price. I've played a Supreme too, and they're almost indistinguishable-perfectly smooth, smoother and lighter tone than typical LPs ('cause of the chambers), but simply awesome, still has that indescribable LP tone. A little pissed it doesn't have binding, but you gotta bottom out somewhere.


Beautiful sounding instrument

By Cris Dunn

from Houston, TX

I haven't played a guitar in 20 years so when I decided I was going to play again, I purchased a LP so I could be sure that if I did not produce good music then it was MY fault. The LP Studio Premium Plus is a gorgeous instrument. The book matched high grade maple top draws the envy of any artist while the sound this animal produces is awesome in the right hands. I have played it daily for three months now and I am confident that I made the right choice. The instrument is beautiful and sounds magnificent with a blues lick or a crunching metal rhythm. I play it with a VOX 30w combo and am quite happy with it.

My dad bought me one of these for christmas. It is an amazing guitar. They look so much better in person than all these pictures on here. I am stepping up from an epiphone g-400 to this guitar, and the difference is crazy. The neck fits my hands perfectly, the sound is the best thing I've ever heard. The colors and woodgrain are beautiful. Its an amazing guitar. They are now discontinued so get them while you can.


Great value, great guitar

I have only owned this for a small amount of time, but it has already worked its way to my number one guitar. I play in a couple of rock bands, for the local music theater organization, play in church and for a praise band, and play in a big band and jazz combo at school. I am a full time college student at a private university, so I needed the best deal I could find, and this was it, hands down. I got it in natural, and it gets comments all the time. Plays like a dream. Only reason it got 9 for features is because they put the same old typical stock pickups in it, but for the price, what do you expect, and it's not like I'm complaining at all. Stock pickups sound better than most company's high end pickups.

Les Paul Collector

When I started out checking out Gibson's Studio Model Les Pauls I wasn't expecting the quality to be as good as it is. Boy I was wrong. Right now I have 18 Single Cut Gibson Les Pauls in my collection. And I've been using other Les Pauls in there Studio Line Up that are just Awesome. But when they came out with the Studio Premium Pluses I had to check them out. I ended up buying 2 of them. Different finishes on both. One is Trans Amber and the other Trans Black. Both have completely different Tonal Qualities and the AAA Tops on them just keep the Compliments coming in. I think Gibson should have thrown in some Burst Bucker Pickups but other then that with the 50's neck these Guitars really CRANK. I have a Total of 34 Gibson Les Pauls now and Gibson just keeps building them better. Your without a Doubt getting more for your money on these Studio Premium Pluses. If you haven't tried one out yet I'd make it a Top Priority. You'll see what I mean when you do.
