Gibson Les Paul Studio - Wine Red w/ Gold Hardware
The Les Paul Studio is like a line of guitars of its own now. Before all the faded guitars and what not the Studio was the original budget model. It has all the features of a real Les Paul but isnt a JR model. There are many variants of the Studio now and this one is the model with Gold hardware all around. The body is chambered mahogany now. If you get an old one it might not be chambered. The neck is a fat 50s mahogany neck. The fretboard on this model is rosewood. On the white model it is ebony. Older studio models have dot inlays while the newer ones have trapezoid inlays. The tuners up top are non locking as is the bridge. It comes with standard gibson 490R and 498T pickups. It has the standard Les Paul control layout with a volume and tone for teach pickup and a 3 way switch.


This guitar is pretty spartan all around. There is no binding anywhere and some of the fit and finish might be rough. I have seen un even frets on some Les Paul Studios. With the 50s style neck some players might have some problems. They have put the 50s profile Gibson neck on this guitar so the neck is huge. People call the 50s profile neck the baseball bat neck. This may make it hard for some people with smaller hands to play. Because of the set neck design there is a large neck tenon and joint. This can make the upper frets hard for some people to reach because the body essentially joins the neck at the 17th fret. After the 17th fret you are reaching around the body to get to the frets. Because there is no binding the guitar will be more likely to have sharp fret edges when you first get it.With the non locking tuners and non locking bridge you get the traditional problems. The it may go out of tune on you and when you change strings the bridge and tailpiece will fall off. With the Gold hardware it is more prone to tarnishing. If you do not clean it after every session it will turn black on you or green. Tarnished gold hardware doesnt look cool like dirty chrome hardware it just looks bad.


With the generic Gibson pickups you get a generic modern Gibson sound. A generic Gibson sound from 60 years ago would be really good. But a modern Generic Gibson sound is not so good. A lot of the base tone is lost due to the chambering as well. The thick mahogany body is part of the Gibson tone. This guitar has a big chamber inside it and although they say this chamber doesnt affect tone it really does. Some of the thickness is gone on these chambered models. It is especially noticable when you try one out acoustically. A good acoustic base is the key to a good amplified tone. Guitars that sound bad acoustically can sound good amplified but if you have a good base everything beyond that gets better. The pickups are decent all around pickups. They are more voiced for classic rock. If you are playing a more specialized type of music like metal you may want to change the pickups.


The gold hardware on this model does not make it any better than the other studio models. I would not recommend this model over a normal Studio model. I would normally not recommend a studio at all. I would only recommend this model if you come across a good deal used. For the price of these guitars New you can get a much better Japanese guitar or a guitar from another company with much better features. Of if you want a Studio you can get a guitar with the same features for much cheaper.

Gibson Les Paul Studio - Wine Red w/ Gold Hardware
If you like the look of the wine red then you will dig this guitar. This guitars is very sleek and sexy looking instrument. The wine red color just pops when you see this guitar in person. Any picture you see of it just doesn't do the guitar any justice at all. It is one of those must see to believe slogans that people say, only this time it actually is true. This guitar is just stunning to look at and the zebra humbucker pickups just top the cake for this instrument. The fine red color is simple exquisite to look at in the light. My favorite color is red so I am a little biased towards red guitars.


Gibson Les Paul Studio Wine Red Gold Features:

Carved maple top
Mahogany body with chambered weight-relief
Mahogany neck, '50s Rounded Les Paul
Rosewood fingerboard (Ebony on Alpine white)
22 frets
Corian nut
Nashville Tune-O-Matic bridge with stopbar

2 volume and 2 tone knobs with black speed knobs, 3-way switch
Vintage-style 14:1 tuners with perloid buttons


The sound from the chambered Gibson Les Paul's is not as good as the the full bodied Les Paul's. I don't like the tone of the chambered in comparison. It is different tone not better or worse but just something that I particularly don't care for. This guitar sounds great as a Gibson Les Paul should aside from being a chambered. I like to play Les Paul's with a Marshall amp of some kind. The two are beautifully matched to each other like they were born to be together. The tone of the instrument is a great organic tone. The pickups are ok as I have never been a huge fan of the burstbucker pickups. In this guitar I would go with a Suhr Aldrich pickups set to get a more driven PAF style tone.


You can pick these guitars up new for right at around 41320, which isn't bad for a new Gibson Les Paul. This is the intro guitar in the the Gibson Les Paul's. There are some that are cheaper but don't have the glazed lacquer on the body as this one does. Plus you don't have to shell out a fortune to buy a custom LP or a VOS LP. This is a good price for this guitar and will serve the purpose it was intended quite well.

Gibson Les Paul Studio - Wine Red w/ Gold Hardware
Manufacture United States, 24 frets, 2 micro hambuckers Gibson Classic, Gibson Bridge


Its clear, solo attack of acute micro snapping, trs sustain good but a bit small round that requires precision.


Warm sound. Amps lamps highly recommended.


Use for 10 years. The look is fascinating. is a unique guitar that made school. A little heavy especially if you play standing up. If I could afford, I buy a version without hsitation Std.
