The Gibson Les Paul studio is a budget friendly Gibson guitar that allows the budget musician to get an extremely great sounding instrument. This is a throwback addition to the 60s Les Paul studio guitars. This features to P90 pickups which gives it that particular sound that's very different than the sound of a humbucker pickup.

These guitars are chambered to get a have a little bit of a hollow sound is not to be as rich and deep as a solid body Gibson Les Paul guitar. The neck is a 60 slimmer neck so if you played the 50s neck it's going to be a little bit sooner than that neck and not as chunky and sick. The radius is 12 inches and you have 22 frets.

SOUNDS


I really like the color of this guitar primarily because of the warned honey sunburst that it has. It looks very vintage and just has a classic look to it. The P90 pick up is pretty good and if you are into the P90 pick ups then you're really going to dig this guitar. It has a full tone even know it is chambered so it's going to be a great guitar especially for the price. It is good to be a particular sound is to be different than a Gibson Les Paul that has home bikers install. So be prepared to sound different than any other Les Paul that/or Jimmy page would play.

OVERALL OPINION


At new you can find guitars for right around $850 which is a steal the price if you ask me. It's a great introduction into the Gibson family so at this price it's a pretty good pick up. So I would recommend this to anyone looking to get a solid sounding Gibson Les Paul at a great price. Plus of you need a P90 guitar then this isn't a lot of money to update your guitar collection.
