The Gibson Les Paul Studio has long been the popular choice of the gigging musician who wants high-end components and raw power, at a price that’s within budget. The 2013 version of this model continues the tradition of affordability but offers you even more for your money. Alongside choice tonewoods the guitar features a pair of powerful humbuckers with coil-splitting.
An upgrade from the standard model, the Gibson Les Paul Studio Min-ETune 2013 Electric Guitar comes factory-fitted with Gibson’s Min-ETune system. With this addition being set at the headstock, it’s surprising just how much the compact, battery-powered Min-ETune tuners can do. Along with being able to adjust the tuning pegs manually, you can select from 12 popular tunings, across two banks (Red & Green), by simply pressing a button and giving the strings a strum. 3 seconds later, and the guitar is set to the new selected tuning. On top of this the Min-ETune also has an additional Blue bank, which allows you to store up to six user-defined tunings.
The available tunings consist of the following:
|Red Bank||Green Bank||Blue Bank|
|Standard||Open E||User-Defined Tuning 1|
|DADGAD||Open A||User-Defined Tuning 2|
|Low D||Open D||User-Defined Tuning 3|
|Drop-D||Open G||User-Defined Tuning 4|
|Eb||Dobro||User-Defined Tuning 5|
|Double Drop-D||All 4th||User-Defined Tuning 6|
With a pairing of tonewoods that have stood the test of time (they’ve been appearing on this model for sixty years) the Gibson Les Paul Studio 2013 is set up to deliver consistent, high-quality tone. A carved, solid maple top projects articulation and bite, while the select mahogany body produces the underlining warmth and depth. What’s more the body benefits from a modern weight-relief pattern to keep the weight of the guitar low.
In-keeping with its stripped-back ethos, the body of the 2013 Gibson Les Paul Studio Guitar remains unbound and has been finished with a high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, which is only interrupted by an elegant pickguard.
Quarter-sawn and glued-in the Gibson Les Paul Studio 2013 Electric Guitar utilises a solid mahogany neck. Instantly comfortable in the hands of fast players, the neck has been carved to the '60s SlimTaper profile and is topped by a 22 medium-jumbo fretted, granadillo fingerboard, with a radius of 12-inches, and traditional trapezoid inlays. Like the body this has been left unbound.
Ensuring the best possible sustain, and precise intonation the Gibson Les Paul Studio 2013 Electric Guitar has been outfitted with Gibson’s exceptional combination of a Tune-o-Matic bridge and a Stopbar tailpiece. This is in addition to a set of vintage-style TonePros tuners and a PLEK-cut Corian nut.
Ensuring you are not left wanting the Gibson Les Paul Studio 2013 Electric Guitar has been loaded up with a pair of coil-tapped PAF-replicated humbuckers with Alnico magnets and 42-AWG wire; supremely versatile combination.
Un-split, the 490R at the neck throws out classic warmth, with deep, raspy blues, while the bridge, with its 498T, burns with scorching, sizzling screams. Activate coil-splitting, via the push-pull controls set into the tone control knobs, and you have a choice of genuine single-soil tones from either pickup, or hum cancelling when the middle position is selected.
