For over six decades, Gibson have been crafting top quality guitars and this is continued in the form of the 2016 Les Paul Studio Traditional with Gold Hardware. The Les Paul has been one of the most highly regarded models that Gibson have ever produced, and this 2016 version gives you all of the vintage attributes you would expect at a price that won’t break the bank. Like many esteemed guitarists before you, deliver that classic Les Paul sound with this brand new Studio Traditional axe.


With any Les Paul, a predominant feature when it comes to its construction has to be the use of mahogany and maple tonewoods. The mahogany solid body is weight-relieved which makes it feel notably more comfortable to play without forfeiting its tonality. The carved maple body top complements the mahogany body to produce ultimate sustain and thunderous, vintage sounds.


Accompanying the mahogany, weight-relieved body is a mahogany neck which has been shaped to a 1960s Les Paul SlimTaper profile which benefits a faster playing style. A rosewood 22-fret fingerboard is connected to the neck and is decorated with Trapezoid inlays so you can confidently glide up and down the luxurious neck with ease from note to note.


The Gibson Les Paul guitar has always been the boss when it comes to accomplishing those well-known sweet, vintage tones, and this 2016 version continues to use the PAF (patent applied for) humbucker pickup design to achieve this. The 2016 Les Paul Studio is kitted out with two pickups in an aurous gold hardware finish, the 490R and 498T, both powered by Alnico magnets which have very similar features to pickups on a ‘57 classic but with an increase in the upper-mid, humbucker sound. Also, there are four knobs on the guitar, two for volume, two for tone, with an additional push-pull coil tapping component which allows you to switch between vintage humbucker or single-coil sounds.


The 2016 Les Paul Studio is equipped with a Tune-o-Matic bridge and traditional stopbar tailpiece. The manual Green tuning keys enable an accurate harmony between notes and chords.

The Gibson 2016 Les Paul Studio is completely kitted out to have the traditional specifications but has contemporary features to bring it right up to date. 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.
