Gibson Les Paul Studio
Handle a little big but not invincible, the weight that hurt shoulder for some al. 22 frets and two microphones that all the world connais.Pour me I adore the aesthetic

UTILIZATION

Especially for any rock, a lethal weapon for the Nu metal it goes very well in places drop.Pour clean sound very good too

SOUNDS

Impressive sustain more than 6 seconds in his heat bocoup clean with a huge attack of his first crunch.Elle is best served by an overdrive by the distortion.

OVERALL OPINION

A-, as it was al school. I help the last 6 months I begin to see its limites.L aesthetic I like, I like the sound, the quality / price makes it one of the best guitare.Je bought 1000 euros new al abroad, and if c had to be rebuilt I do it again without hesitate one second

Gibson Les Paul Studio
Made in the United States
Two double mic 490B and 498T (microphones commonly used on the Les Paul)
A selector 3 positions, one for each microphone and to couple the two
knob a flight and a micro tone.
Channel not so big, depending on taste. It is far from invincible

UTILIZATION

Access to acute certainly a little hard but I speak good treble very high in the neck
On the issue of weight, it's correct this problem because my date of July 2004 so the model is ultra new and so I was very pleasantly surprised at the weight. It is very very slight, I compared with the oldest studio of a friend and therefore it is undeniable, bcp mine is lighter.

SOUNDS

I think this guitar charm bcp its big range of sounds. Only by having acquisition and played on this guitar that I realized what a power chord ;-)
So the big pickup bcp oriented rock and the neck pickup is bcp softer more pastel, very nice for jazz and blues
I am very very happy with the sound of this guitar

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 1 month on a home triamp mk2 Hugh and Kettner
I had the opportunity to play on bcp very different models of guitars and this price is the best I could find.
I bought it new in Germany 1000euros
If I hesitate to do it again absolutely not.

Gibson Les Paul Studio
Gibson Studio United States:
- 22 round boxes, glued in mahogany, rosewood fingerboard, perloid benchmarks.
- Mahogany body with maple veneer table 3 parts.
- Tune-o-matic, 6 mechanical means (replaced with Sperzel locking for the LP that I have here).
- Two double Gibson Alnico, one volume and one tone with microphone toggle switch 3 positions.
- Channel 50's type, thicker and narrower than the 60's found on the Special, the Classic, etc.. A real tree trunk.
- Diapason ridiculously small compared to "stratabound" (24 3 / 4 instead of 25 1 / 2).
- Wood quality but nothing special, fairly good gold hardware, pickups ok. Honestly though chick finish compared to other models: no net edge key, edge body, let alone head table in maple who throws less than on other models (including the Studio Plus).

UTILIZATION

- Frankly, the Les Paul, it's misery ... the handle is too thick, too narrow, the boxes are dwarf, have to get used.
- Access to treble is almost zero, because of junction design body / neck dating from the 50's.
- Same for ergonomics pathos of the beast: the body shape is awkward (although very sexy!), Seated, ask for the cut on the leg is too close to the handle, so the guitar is unbalanced. No cut "stomach", you end up with the ridge of high skyscraper in the ribs ... no cutout for the forearm, so we rubbed the elbow a little too much cash ...
- Get up, things are better on that side, but it weighs a dead donkey ...
- In short, it is clear that technical advances in instrument making, it is useful.
- "Do you get a good sound easily ?...": There's interest!

SOUNDS

- Sound?? B'en is the only thing good with a Les Paul for rock, it sounds! At the same time, with a beam of 15 kilos Mahogany, if it sounds no more!
- It is not addressing a bunch of different styles, with the tab and legendary sound typical Les Paul.
- The metal passes not bad either, she balks at nothing!
- I had the "pleasure" of playing on this LP (which a friend made me try once in a while for me to get into the clan-maso Gibsonian) on my usual stuff, it sounds b'en! The clean sounds are quite plump, especially with the micro neck, the crunch going well, scratch that cry alone!
- Large distos not sound bad, although ultra saturated, the microphones go hand and begin to like common bavouiller Duncan. Boarf, with Zakk Wylde EMG chtit kit, everything is in order, but the LP purists will want to burn me on a cross.

OVERALL OPINION

- I B'en ploïnk ploïnk once a month on this LP studio buddy, and that's it! I really like to suffer for the sound.
- Ergonomics dingy, the outrageous price compared to the quality of finish continue to convince me that, yeah, you really be in love with the LP to buy one. Personally, I find more temperamental than "nature" ...
- Clearly, an LP is the legend But, hey, even one day in a flame, it will be a model not only sexy but also playable, if not comfortable.

Gibson Les Paul Studio
Guitar factory in the United States. Body and 22 frets Mahogany neck, button Ebne, medium frets ... Like all the Les Paul, it is heavy the matron. 2 HB pickups (498T and 490B).
What's classic!
Mine in 1991, she possde a acastillage dor which partially cleared out ... some do not like but I think it has charm as a. .. nothing beats a avcu guitar.
Look sober (wine red finish) suggesting the veins of the table. The handle is built for the loggers, they may even feel some twigs Exceeds ... (not just kidding).

UTILIZATION

The weight of the Les Paul may still be the only black ... and not the Studio n'chappe RULES. The poor sitting balance that allows the instrument to switch from cot body requires time to adapt to find the correct position of the game .. but then got used to it quite easily ... and then play standing up, not bad too.
The size of the handle can Drout some, too, requires men to paw out the master (whatever!), It is far from the profile of Asian highways clbres or m I still others amricaines Chres Randy ... but we can do many things on it. I use a deep draft of strings for better stick to the spirit of the guitar, I do not for one of the virtuosos of the instrument, but a Gibson is not made to handle dbouler unbelievable speed .. is only a gibson you dcoller finger skin!

SOUNDS

Whether on an amp lamps (ENGL 30W), a transistor (Peavey Bandit 112 gnration Transtube before), or even directly in a pod, we have the Gibson sound. Not the prcis all, but the spirit is l. The micro granular desire is serious, it dgouline greedily, it makes you cry the amp.
The microphone is acute insist, violent, full of harmonics and what a pleasure ....!!!
The sounds are typs, cantons few styles (blues sound very fat and very heavy) but you get what you are entitled to expect from a Gibson. Not the most versatile ... but it is trs what to do.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 2 years. She has an uncle who is now part type beef with jimi, stevie and other ...
I love this shovel, his look, all the scars that make it an instrument part. She has me and has no price.

Gibson Les Paul Studio
Gibson studio United States
22 frets
easel very practical tune o matic (it does not break the strings conytrairement to fender)
2 humbuckers
A 3-position selector
1 Volume 1 Tone by micro
Mahogany neck easy to play al

UTILIZATION

The handle is nothing more enjoyable (small lack of finishing, but I think it has to c is less CHRE)
The cutaway to facilitate Access in c sharp but fairly even when dlicat
The weight and shape are the major weaknesses BEYOND guitar: It's your MIDI shoulder and thigh sitting upright. A guitar for those who are not afraid to suffer so

SOUNDS

C his views against the top by: Gibson's big is the power and unique agressivit
His bold, punchy, comes in, the door's notes
Obviously it's not a versatile guitar but when it's not a Gibson achte to the bagpipes too ...

OVERALL OPINION

I got 3 years
default: the change mcaniques absolutely!
quality: the sound simply, once you accept the finishing average mcaniques rotten and the weight of the bte, it remains the standard and its beautiful ...

For it is against trs CHRE today (1500) I got it for 500 okaz the era
It is the right choice for the rock / metal.
It is the right choice if you do not play in clean sounds.

e-axe le vieux's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Gibson Les Paul Studio
It's a real Les Paul American, without decoration (although I've never been fanatic bindings of all kinds and I liked the decor simple: mine is black with gold hardware).
And it has everything a Les Paul!
- The same wood (mahogany body with maple table, mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard)
- The same pickups (a standard), two microphones, two tones, two volumes, a toggle switch
- The same hardware (tailpiece, bridge, mechanical ...)
- The same production (excluding bindings): set neck Gibson in tune (the one that fits in the hand), cellulose varnish, etc ...
- Case Gibson (yes, with the wig pink inside ...)

It seems that the only differences are:
- Less wood "chosen" aesthetic (mine is black so how do you know?)
- A body just a bit thinner (although it seems to me that when I compared mine to a standard at the time of purchase, it was really the same thickness, I'll have to check). Anyway, today they are a bit of a tad thinner.
- No binding on the body and the handle (decoration very expensive to carry out properly)

UTILIZATION

Scoop: This is a Les Paul!
It's heavy as a Les Paul and comfortable like a Les Paul (standing, is the strap that I destroyed the shoulder, sitting is the edge that I destroyed the ribs)
The neck is thick with the Les Paul
Routing microphones like Les Paul the whole family. Usage is simple: two microphones, each with its volume and tone. A toggle switch for routing.

The Les Paul is not the most ergonomic guitar (no weight and muzzle), so no note max.

SOUNDS

The sound is known: it is the sound LesPaul.
Sounds clear, smooth handle microphones, microphones croaking bridge (I have not found better as defined)
Distorted sounds: neck pickups with big sound, microphones rack teeth
Both pickups together = the mixture of everything. Pretty versatile but always in the register Gibson. It also buys for that.

A play full on amps not too dirty, to avoid drooling too (unless we look like this: I have already connected to the pedal drive Expandora of Bixonic and there it can be very zztop-discharge)

OVERALL OPINION

At the time, I bought it for the sound of a Les Paul at a lower cost. Contract filled!
In 1995, I bought it for 5700 USD NEW Pigalle. Yep, you read that right, happy time of the weak dollar and importers understanding.

With the price difference there was between a LP Studio and an LP Standard at the time, I do it again the same choice. Today, not sure the difference is as important (in any case, Gibson's overpriced), and the Standard is still the legend!
