The Gibson 2019 Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar is designed to be a versatile workhorse for use between both the stage and the studio, as well as being an affordable model for professionals. Boasting a lightweight and fast-playing design paired with adaptable electronics, the Les Paul Studio is perfect for those who want the best of both worlds. Each model is supplied with a Gibson hardshell case to keep yours safe on the road, as well as an accessory kit to keep your guitar in pristine condition.
The 2019 Studio is built using mahogany in keeping with Gibson's long established Les Paul design. To enhance its playability without compromising on tonal integrity, the mahogany has been treated to an ultra-modern weight-relief rout. Paired with the mahogany is an elegant maple top, which is protected by a resilient coating of gloss nitrocellulose lacquer. The lack of body binding gives a no nonsense, understated aesthetic. The tonal foundation laid by the mahogany encourages a rich midrange warmth that is matched by articulate highs for a well-rounded output that is suited to any musical style.
Solid and reliable neck
Connected to the body is a robust mahogany neck, which is shaped to a slimtaper profile to encourage a lightning fast playing feel. The 24.75-inch scale length ensures that depth and warmth is carefully infused with every note whilst upholding consistency of feel. Married to the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 frets that are lavished with acrylic trapezoid position inlays to guide you. Thanks to traditional rolled binding along the neck, transitions between each and every fret feel smooth and seamless. The 12-inch fingerboard radius allows you to execute elaborate technique with the greatest of ease.
Classic humbucker pickups
The 2019 Les Paul Studio is equipped with a pair of humbuckers comprising a 490R in the neck position and a 498T in the bridge position. The 490R is an Alnico II magnet powered pickup that expresses a deeply saturated midrange character for chunky blues-inspired tones. The 498T is an Alnico V magnet that produces a significantly hotter output that is perfect for those who want to throw down epic solos and searing lead licks with gusto. Independent volume controls with push/pull coil-tap capabilities, a pair of tone controls, and a three-way pickup selector toggle switch allows you to pull a wide range of tones from the pickups with ease.
The headstock is home to Grover Rotomatic tuning machines with kidney buttons, which uphold tuning integrity dutifully and work alongside the TekToid nut to solidify stability and tension. Fitted to the body is an aluminium Nashville tune-o-matic bridge and aluminium stopbar tailpiece, which work in partnership to anchor each string securely for optimised intonation and sustain.
