Established in 1894, Gibson began building their range of top quality guitars in Michigan, USA, and have long since been impressing the world of guitarists with their extensive range of axes. Gibson have taken the time to strip back this model and empower it with all of the classic, loveable features of a Les Paul Studio, and all for an amazing value.


Since the birth of the Les Paul guitar in 1952, the two crucial elements in the construction of this beauty are as always, maple and mahogany. The mahogany body is weight-relieved which gives it a significantly lighter feel and thus more comfortable to play. Complementing the mahogany body is a carved maple body top, together these tonewoods work to produce an enhanced sonoric resonance and an overall powerful tone.

Joined to the body is a solid mahogany neck that is shaped to the traditional 1950s Les Paul profile. It has a slightly larger feel which many guitarists will be familiar with on this Gibson Studio model. Married to the mahogany neck is a thicker rosewood fingerboard which is aptly decorated with Trapezoid inlays to guide you along the frets with confidence.


As we all know, the Gibson Les Paul has always been a master model of producing sweet, vintage tones, and this 2016 version continues to use the PAF (patent applied for) humbucker pickup design. The Les Paul Studio 2016 is kitted out with two humbucking pickups, the 490R and 498T, both made of Alnico magnets that aid the guitar to produce those soft, clear tones, but as soon as you increase the gain you will be greeted with a powerful bite. These pickups are fantastic for heavy rock and metal sounds but are befitting of a vast range of genres.


In keeping with Gibson Les Paul heritage, the Les Paul Studio is fitted with a traditional stoptail bridge and manual tuning keys. Built with German Plek technology, this 2016 model offers optimum playability for any guitarist thanks to their attention to detail when it comes to making the best possible string action.

Whenever you’re about to plug in and play, whether in the studio or on stage, just tune up and away you go. It really is that easy!

The 2016 model is finished with a delicately hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer in a range of colours for a striking appearance as well as an authentic, vintage sound.
