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.

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.

It's a keeper

By Michael-vD6El

from California

This Gibson came out of the box with the standard factory setup, which is nice for some. I had my guy restring and set it up to my specs. The stock tuners I've left on to test. It's been a month and they fail. It's funny how such a wonderful Guitar would be fitted with tuners that won't stay in tune. The sound is incredible through my rig. I'm a poor boygrowing up playing many copies cat guitars. Nothing compares to Gibson's Feel, the neck and sound left me breathless. Thanks Gibson for making the Devil pay that debt of the Golden Fiddle he always promises. M.F. S.C.

Les Paul Collector

By Charlieroxs247@aol.com

from Las Vegas, FROM New York, now Retired

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.

The Real LP Feel in a Cheaper yet dreamly version

By oreo_madness

from Cyprus

I was searching for a new guitar to buy as it was my birthday. I firstly considered buying an ESP thinking that metallica are wise in order to be using them. Later on I thought that my dream from a young age was to play or even to own an original Gibson Les Paul. When I browsed the net to find one I noticed the high prices, however I was hooked with the vast variety of options in the Les Paul category. When I saw the gibson les paul studio premium plus natural I thought that it would be rather pricely like all other gibson products. When I noticed that it had a much more reasonable price than any other guitar I had seen so far. I thought it would be a great experience owning one so with no second thought I purchaced it. By the way I had to mention that I often regret buying stuff. The fact is I couldn;t be more happy with my guitar!

LP Studio Premium Plus...Beautiful!!

By StratShadows

from Minneapolis, MN

This is definitely a "head-turning" guitar! The flame top is awesome, and sounds every bit as good as a LP standard. Plays just as good too. One word of caution however. As you probably know, LP studios lack the traditional body binding. While this makes the instrument affordable, it also leaves the maple edges exposed and susceptible to dings. I put a dent in mine the first week (sigh...) Most used "Studios" suffer from similar beauty marks. If you plan rough service for your LP, consider a standard or higher model. Otherwise enjoy this one. I love mine...dings and all.

This is my favorite of no less than 5 heavily played axes. Prior to purchase I compared it to another Les Paul on the shelf for $2,000 more, and the biggest difference was the lack of binding, which is pretty much cosmetic. The woods, pickups, etc. were all the same. The finish is beautiful Gibson nitrocellulose, and the tone and playability are unmatched. Fast, good weight, versatile...It is perfect. Mine is rootbeer and played through a Peavy ValveKing, and sometimes through the GNX4 processor. Love it.

Best value for the buck

By jolietjeff

from Chicago

This guitar not only looks great but sounds unbelievable. It is clear and clean even when playing up on the 20th fret and is so light and FAAAST. I have the cheaper mahogany LP and that is great but this is a dream come true

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.
