Les Paul body
The body is crafted using Swamp Ash, which establishes a sweet midrange tonal foundation. The lightweight feel of the body, coupled with the sleek single cutaway design, makes the Les Paul Custom Studio a joy to perform with. The finish remains understated, with a worn ebony aesthetic that gives this model a played-in vibe.
The Les Paul Custom Studio is equipped with a set-neck design, which guarantees exceptional sustain so that every note rings out with unfailing clarity. The neck is crafted using maple and treated to a slimtaper profile to make it easy to extend your fretting hand along its entire length in comfort. Paired with the neck is a rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 frets that are adorned with dot position inlays to guide your way.
Gibson have equipped the Custom Studio with a pair of USA-made double-slug DS-A5 humbuckers, which offer a confident and dynamic range of tones to play with. Control over the pickups comes in the form of a master volume pot, a master tone pot, and a three-way pickup selector switch. The rich timbre of the swamp ash and articulate maple/rosewood partnership come together to create a versatile tonal palette from which to draw from.
The body is home to the ABR-style bridge and stopbar tailpiece, which create a seamless connection between the strings and body to optimise intonation and reinforce the already impressive sustain. Mini-button chrome tuning machines enable you to readily adjust the tuning of each string, whilst remaining steadfast during the most energetic of performances.
Each Gibson USA 2017 Les Paul Custom Studio Electric Guitar in Worn Ebony is supplied with an owner's manual, and truss rod wrench.
