    The "Studio", which appeared in 1983, resembles a modern version of the LP allge finish, its colors, its lack of binding (nets) ...
    Note that recalls the Custom configuration: Micros 490 R / T 498, mahogany body, maple neck, black plates.

    ** Peculiarities of my 1991 model **
    Painting: white has yellowed (original it was to be a "classic white")
    dorbr fittings /> Mcaniques oil bath (avoid other, type "deluxe" I think they take less tuning!)
    Repres trapzoidaux (Standard Type - in the 80s had premires simple points)

    USE

    I have to have a good millsime, in view of other messages ...
    The handle is nickel, well-sized frets, mcaniques oil bath ...
    A guy I play with has a wine red 96, her mcaniques with plastic eyelets take less tuning.
    I find the 2 copies I know irrprochables a comfort point of view!
    I solved the problem of the weight (5 kg) by investing in a onreuse strap and thick quilted since happiness.
    The varnish should not be terrible, it aragi rubber of my guitar stand (turns pink fawn locates back, contact area) or "toupee" of the tui ( the head, behind the saddle, also turns pink, without contact with the support) ...

    SONORITS

    Rather I play blues / classic rock, in short, this guitar suits me.
    I plugged into a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 112. This couple offers good clean sounds, otherwise I overcomes the screaming distortion Fender with a Boss MT-2.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    Bought in August 2004 for OCCAZ 1100. Almost the price of a new day ... I do not know if the current Studio is of great quality as all manufacturers there are ups and downs ...
    I do not notice, the better it is of course a try!

    Purchased in November 2001 for 1500 euros.
    The only notable feature is that the studio does not have a maple top (reserved to the standard, the deluxeetc ...)
    For the rest it is a les paul, one likes or dislikes.
    Nothing to say about the quality, apart from the original hardcase who seemed more cheap than the fender cases.
    Cherry red version.
    The handle is not a autoraute but I have another guitar solos.

    I should mention here that I have kept for 3 days at the store, they were kind enough to take me back. I took a telecaster 52 'instead.

    Today I rather regret not having kept, but hey I had a yamaha sg 1000 that sounded better.
    The weight, I did not find huge NRJ my telecaster ash is heavier ...
    The only problem of this guitar is that the sound was too specific too modern.

    SOUNDS

    Who listen to many dique sixties (faces etc ...), I had a preconceived idea of ​​his Gibson.
    I was looking in the studio a fat, fluffy, deaf. The studio is the opposite of that, the sound is brilliant, accurate, balanced, in a word: modern. Big disappointment compared to my expectations, I believe that we must invest in a standard for "the sound" les paul.
    To my taste, yamaha sg 1000 (1973) sounded more Gibson.
    I think the studio are made for modern rock, hard, pop than blues.
    It is ideal in this register but a little dirty or mushy sound, special equipped with p90 (I got one in the year 80) seems more suitable although less defined fat saturation.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    In conclusion, I think the studio is aptly named, clear and precise, it will do for very punchy and clean saturations, short for Studio rods ...
    The Lespaul range is so vast that suited blues and vintage rock find their "weapon" easy but it will by no means the Studio.
    In its modern registry is unbeatable but for me it does not sound that we liked so much disk Robin trower ...
    Noted that guitar would be subjective, because pure matter of taste, for my part I found no personality (for a Gibson ..)

    As the key was a little dry for my taste, I treat once a year not to lemon oil blow sensations Nickel.

    SOUNDS

    My guitar sounds. This is why I bought it after trying in store by chance.
    Both empty, clear (playing on the tones and volume) in full. And at all positions.
    What Gibson sound.
    Ultimately more versatile than what some say a Lespaul.
    I have a Lag Roxanne made in France; the lag is great but different, the gibson sounds softer.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Used for 2 years

    No regrets with my purchase.
    Maybe not quite finished well for the price but hey it's not what I asked.
    A try before you buy because I do not know if all sound and well settled as mine

    Les Paul guitar Nashville with Mahogany body with tone chambers and solid maple table. The handle is mahogany and rosewood (I think) in 50's Rounded.
    Power level was a 498T bridge pickup and neck pickup 490R.

    UTILIZATION

    This is an LP so ergonomics is no longer present, in terms of weight that is relatively acceptable, the string action is set fairly basic and the game is pretty nice.
    Level finish, I will not complain guitar is beautiful.

    SOUNDS

    A powerful and effective sound, ideal for good riff rock. I play with my PB and mo amp Amp FX and the result is terrible. Its very typical rock with a warm grain. The guitar shows limits on the nag but at the same time it is not his field, I have a Godin Redline for that.

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's been 6 months since I played with and I'm still in love, bought used in superb condition, it is for me the guitar I play the most. I had the opportunity to play on a standard LP 60s and personally I prefer mine, the weight makes them more manageable and the sound is more straight forward.

    See google for Gibson LP
    The finishes are not super TOP -> 9
    White, black, gold, I find it very beautiful.

    UTILIZATION

    Handle well, right, right.
    Balanced guitar
    RAS.

    SOUNDS

    Mesa Boogie, Marshall.
    The sound is clean, predictable.
    The dynamic is very good.
    The whole is less and less singing a living standard, or ES335.
    The sustain is great (ebony?)
    Crystalline sound on demand.
    Good fat saturation, present and clean classes.
    In this guitar, there is nothing to throw away, everything is good.
    It is very versatile (hence the name 'studio'?)
    It is all very well: rock, jazz, blues, pop, Varietal, solos, rhythm, etc ... and it is always very clean.

    It has Gibson sound, but without the specific magic large Gibson (much more expensive).
    If you are looking for a very particular sound, this is not the right guitar.
    If you want to play all, with well-known sounds and without breaking the bank, this is a guitar that you should consider.

    I fully share the view of 'King Loudness' below.

    OVERALL OPINION

    For 2 months.
    Very good guitar, serious, effective, pro.
    It is found used 800 euros and sometimes less.
    At this price, this is a very good deal.

    Everything has already been said.

    I wanted to add that level against finished, I had to redo some modifications on the pickguard so that it is fully seated and not hit against the table every time I put my hand on it.

    UTILIZATION

    Weight heavy enough but we made it quickly, I personally do not feel more.
    on the other hand, when it comes to lugging in his hut, after a while it becomes VERY heavy! But hey, we console quickly by saying that a les paul in his hands.

    The neck is perfect for me! I love it, I feel I put my hand on a cushion whenever I play, though it may not please everyone.

    The sound is great for what I play! I play mostly rock, with a big, fat sound, the bridge pickup is perfect for this style! We feel that in "as a pick!"
    However, I find a little molasson 490R, it lacks attack and volume output for my taste.

    OVERALL OPINION

    A perfect guitar for my game, with a handle is great microphones that send the block!

    A beautiful instrument

    Gibson Les Paul StudioPublished on 12/20/12 at 07:48
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    I do not assume the characteristics they have been mentioned before. Mine has the distinction of having a handle 60 (ie the thinnest and I love it!).

    It has mechanical gibson "luxury" (This is a 2011 model, wine red color.)

    I was hooked as soon as I tried it. But I had been disappointed before trying some models, but then I fell in love!

    The finish is good, although my luthier had to do a little editing (purely aesthetic) as the paint had jumped behind the neck 2 cm (hey at this price point, I must be the guitar nickel!)

    The case comes with custom, this is the class!

    I added strap locks because, well, would not break down!

    The case comes with custom, this is the class!

    I added strap locks because, well, would not break down!

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is nice, but i get used to the. I was playing on sleeves rather fine and i readjust a bit of me.

    Small flat on access to acute. We can not say that it is really cut to shred, it is a little less easy to play on the last boxes.

    The neck is super comfortable against. You can play longer without getting tired.

    It is very pleasant to play, against the form of the body that I am more at ease standing than sitting, it is surely a matter of habit.

    SOUNDS

    I use the micro side easel rather solo in his light. Once you put an overdrive or distortion, it sounds really good! Sustain, presence, everything is there for me!

    The sound is warm, round, I love the clear sound with the microphone in the neck position or intermediate. Corrections are effective.

    To me, you get a good sound from that branch. An amplifier, reverb and it sounds really good. I think it sounds as good as its clear that its saturated, which is not necessarily the case for all guitars.

    OVERALL OPINION

    While some say "yeah, but good new models, this is not the same." born that neither my friend! I tried with handles logs 50, and I said "no, no no, it's not possible!"

    I have not seen any difference in the depth of sound compared to older models. And I've tried many other models, sometimes much more expensive and also less expensive, and there I came across a studio that sounds good. I was even surprised to see that there are no obvious difference with the Paul standard in sound.

    In conclusion, I have read a lot about the studio, but I think that above all, we must try to choose the right model, and especially to pay by a luthier.
    J, did bring action orders. It is mounted on the 10/46. I play rock, funk and jazz, and it suits my style of play

    The only thing a bit annoying is that it tends to detune a little too quickly for my taste.

    You should also know, it is covered with cellulose varnish, so do not put it anywhere, I paid the price with a rubber stand that left marks. And it seems that some people have problems with the handle sticking time. So a carefully maintained.

    10 being the best, I put a good 8 out of 10. It is a beautiful instrument.
    I remake that choice without hesitation. For me it is a good value for money.

    2 humbuckers are both bold and incisive. perfect for blues, rock, hardcore, funk, pop, jazz .. why not and even metal. the sound is very balanced and easily takes a central place in the mix.

    this guitar is a must for a solo blues, rock and funk-soul .. big sound very fat, with a strong presence and low-medium warm.

    the handle is wider than that found in fender, but remains relatively "thin" for a gibson. the binding makes it very fluid.

    UTILIZATION

    the handle is very nice, and little tiring.

    it is a gibson lp, so this is access to acute or tapping, it is not as comfortable with one or charvel lag .. but this is not the main objective. (I say this for the "modernist-purists" .. I personally do not like the sleeves square Ibanez Jem, and I take my foot to play the van hauling a LP .. but I regret that there is no affordable LP with floyd!)

    Another downside: you have to be tough, it weighs! it is better to start with a big padded shoulder strap (leather yen too ugly): at the beginning, I wanted not one hour standing with the guitar! => = Répets muscle.

    Gets it easy to sound good? ... yes, it is a plug n play guitar:
    and you plug it sounds. and of course with a compressor and a wah, a phaser or chorus, it's huge. let alone OD or distortion who sing the guitar. the sound is balanced, but I avoid the neck pickup on the rhythm is too loaded bass. by a lead against greasy lover or solo kills.

    SOUNDS

    I play on a hughes & kettner attax 100 preamp and a lamp mfx VOX TONELAB ..
    and some native plugins on inxtruments guitar rig or ik multimedia AmpliTube

    As stated above, the sound goes from "hot" to "fat" and ç'est well balanced ..
    but it sure is the opposite of a telecaster with birch handle!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have 10 years and I have tried almost everything .. I had strato, Tele, ES, flying v, explore .. U.S. and other rosewood handles or birch

    all sold (each time to buy something else ..!) except LP gibson epiphone and explore.

    a gibson is not given, but its worth it. if you have the dosh and that is the sound you are looking for, do not hesitate to lasseras you do not!

    but models are "cheap" in Gibson lately I do not know if there are mods, passke wood prices and wages have not declined in states it seems .. and the dollar as much.

    gibson rocks!

    Access to Acute is correct, no worries. on the other hand, like all the models of this kind, it is heavy. I usually play sitting down, so no worries. But standing, it is not comfortable in the long run.
    Buttons and switches can find a lot of sounds but I think the race tone is not very precise. Basically, we go to the original song sound smothered in a very short time (1/5 of the race of the knob). The rest of the race I am not useful because the sound becomes too dull.

    SOUNDS

    I play blues, rock, pop and metal, mostly on modeling amp (Vox AD60 and Fender Mustang / GDEC)
    It is ideally suited to most genres but does not allow me sounds crystalline or aggressive as my Strat. It lacks some versatility to my style. The two scoops are all very complementary.
    If one considers that its area is rock and hot sounds, it makes the job very well. The bridge pickup is very good distos rhythm and solo. It gets a bit messy if you push too much grain. In clean sounds, although he attacks while retaining heat.
    The neck pickup is very good sounds. I do not like to sound distos, the results imprecise. It also can be a personal preference: with all the guitars I play, I almost never use the distortion in the neck pickup.
    His favorite subject is the British rock 60-90 years.

    OVERALL OPINION

    For less than € 1000, I was able to offer a Gibson. So, admittedly, the lifts are not top, the neck pickup is average ... But all is very consistent and allowed me to have the sounds that were missing from my Strat.
    A good guitar, a bit expensive, but I like it.

    The violin is SERIES but trs correct.

    UTILIZATION

    The handle "tree trunk" Designed specially for bcherons is a highway. In fact, the ergonomics are good trs, the frets are enjoyable. Access in sharp notches is facilitated by a profile silky.
    The weight of the guitar Whereas (prvoir a wide strap), but a guarantee of sound quality. Indeed, on essaysrcemment MODELS I t surprised by the lgret the body (is it of mahogany? Have I thought for a moment and demand it was a modification bnfique ... For Paul alone: ​​the sound dplu me.
    Whereas I do so more weight as a inconvnient.

    SOUNDS

    Trs round neck pickup, I used for voicing for jazz clean sounds that require the grave. The bridge pickup is sharp, I have long been used for the metal and trs is good, only a DiMarzio or a Duesenberg take my mind the comparison. May be a little chtif for clean sounds you want crystal (it is a question that I go simple micro for versatility on the instrument, but this requires making a dfonce and good, c is just a sacr Gibson) ...
    We can use the 490R into overdrive (or crunch) for a more stoner is convincing.
    I attack many amps, sometimes in just a Joemeek between Cubase and more often a Jmp-1 - Mesa Boogie 2:50 about HP Hughes & Kettner. Whatever the legalization rcupre what you want it, the pickups are good trs.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I play this instrument for over ten years, but I have not abandoned my old Yamaha because it possde a floyd (I frquente certainly not assiduously). I also played on Agile 8 string as well as a fender in frne (the one with the famous Duesenberg micro, so musical).
    For the price (just over 3000 francs era) I do not hsit long.
    The ease of the handle (a binding Reduces tune a bit more) is a combined sensation that I do not connate elsewhere: it fits easily into the ropes (right hand more flexible, because chewing gum a little groovy and warm) and they sound until we shall adopt the no. Channel driver? It is as if c'tait useless, as it is al.
    If I were stolen, I Rasht one, yes, but not new: it seems that rcents The models are less well made, the woods are in Tuve SCHS or whatever what else. No nostalgia for lower Tagus, but these old sr (not so much by the way) taient guitars assembled with more care twenty years ago.

    Hasn't held up that well

    Gibson Les Paul StudioPublished on 12/26/11 at 19:05
    Usa made. Pretty much this is an LP standard with less appointments and different pickups. Also the white model I have has an ebony fretboard. I bought this with the intention of it being a touring guitar since most of my other Gibsons are too nice to take on tour and destroy, which I typically do. I compared it to a few upper end models like the standard and traditional. It's pound for pound the same thing besides a few minor features. The big one is the pickups and the lack of a maple cap. Although I've heard that now these actually do come with some sort of a maple top. I'm not really sure.

Although I've heard that now these actually do come with some sort of a maple top. I'm not really sure.

    UTILIZATION

    There's not much to say on this. It's a les paul. I do have some gripes though. I've been touring it for roughly a year and the finish has started to wear through to the wood. This has never really happened to me before. I would like a more durable finish. I guess if you want a well aged guitar it's not an issue but sweat seems to really eat through the paint on these. Also I think my neck has warped to some extent. My action has become very unstable and bad no matter what setup I give it. I think the neck angle has become misaligned with this bridge breaking angle. I understand this happens to guitars if they are exposed to elements. But I never really let that happen to mine. May be a bad piece of wood who knows.

    SOUNDS

    The stock pickups are alright but I'm not a huge fan. I replaced mine with burstbuckers and like them a lot better. Most people seem to be happy with the stock ones though, I'm just very picky. To me it sounds like this guitar has a maple cap. I have a 2008 model fyi. I usually play it through a hughes and kettner statesman 50 into a matchless 2x12.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Seems like Gibson got cheap on the finish for mine but other than that and the neck warping I'd say this is a great value. Don't take my example as final word I'm sure I just got unlucky. But the finish issue I've heard is somewhat common. Take it for what you will. This is still a good deal on a perfectly good les paul guitar.

    Clean white studio

    Gibson Les Paul StudioPublished on 10/19/11 at 12:00
    Before there were a million different Les Paul models there were about 3. You had the Custom at the top, the Standard in the middle and the studio was the budget model. Nowadays there are many more models and there are Les Paul models cheaper than the Studio but the Studio to me is the cheapest real Les Paul, any cheaper than this and you are getting very spartan models that are lacking finish. The only thing the Studio is missing compared to the Standard is binding and lots of people like the clean unbound look. This is the alpine white model which I think is the best in the line up.

    Before there were a million different Les Paul models there were about 3. You had the Custom at the top, the Standard in the middle and the studio was the budget model. Nowadays there are many more models and there are Les Paul models cheaper than the Studio but the Studio to me is the cheapest real Les Paul, any cheaper than this and you are getting very spartan models that are lacking finish. The only thing the Studio is missing compared to the Standard is binding and lots of people like the clean unbound look. This is the alpine white model which I think is the best in the line up. This model has a chambered mahogany body with a maple top. It has the fat 50s mahogany neck with an ebony fretboard. Only the white model comes with an ebony fretboard. You get chrome tuners and a tune-o-matic bridge with standard Gibson pickups. The controls are standard Les Paul with a volume and tone for each pickup with a 3 way toggle on top.

    UTILIZATION

    This studio has the classic Les Paul playability, if you like it that is up to you. Having an ebony fretboard is nice compared to the Rosewood you get on every other model. The neck is still a fat 50s baseball bat. This might be uncomfortable for some people. Because there is no binding the guitar will be more likely to have sharp fret edges when you first get it. This guitar is a lot lighter than most Les Pauls due to it being chambered. This means they cut wood out from the inside of the guitar so it is almost like a semi-hollow.

    SOUNDS

    The factory tone of the guitar isnt great. It has generic Gibson pickups and since the whole body is chambered out you lose the thing mahogany base tone that real Les Pauls have. You can compare a chambered Les Paul to a non chambered Les Paul and you can really hear the difference. A non chambered Les Paul will sound more solid. The mahogany wood give the guitar a really deep sound even though the body is not that big. If you want to play heavier music you may want to change out the pickups. The Gibson pickups are medium output and are voiced more for classic rock. You can get a decent crunchy sound from the bridge pickup. If you put on a ton of gain you will lose definition in the notes though. The neck pickup is bright but kind of smooth. It is not really the neck position sound I go for personally. Putting in some Classic 57s is what I would recommend or some Seymour Duncans.

    OVERALL OPINION

    If I was looking for buy a Les Paul and It had to be a Gibson I wouldnt buy anything lower than A Studio. The Studio has all the stuff the standard has that effects the actual sound of the guitar. The faded models with the lack of finish on them are not as durable and the different finishing methods effect sound. If you are looking at a Studio I would recommend also Looking at Edwards guitars. They cost about the same and for the price of a real Gibson Les Paul studio you can get an Edwards Les Paul Standard or Custom.
