The Gibson USA 2018 Les Paul Studio has everything you would want from a Gibson Les Paul and more. Designed to feel much lighter using a new weight-relief technique, yet also armed with even more sonic range, the 2018 Les Paul Studio is a guitar you will treasure forever.
Lightweight body, rich and powerful tone
The design of the 2018 Les Paul Studio has been improved with a new weight relief system that means whilst you retain a superb tone, you don't have to suffer any discomfort on longer performances.
The mahogany body is joined by an A-grade plain maple top, hand-picked by the expert luthiers at Gibson to provide better, truer Gibson tones. A coat of protective Hi-Gloss Lacquer / 90 Sheen finishes the body top for a stunning visual aesthetic.
Comfortable neck profile
Using the traditional Mortis and Tenon joint and reliable, time-tested Franklin Titebond 50 adhesive, Gibson have joined a smooth mahogany neck. The neck has a more comfortable SlimTaper profile which enhances and promotes a faster playing style.
Topping the neck is a thicker rosewood fingerboard with a 12 inch radius and 22 frets at your disposal. The thickness of the rosewood is a contributor to the tonal depth on offer from this stunning 2018 model. Frets feature the traditional trapezoid inlays to guide you. The frets have also been cryogenically treated to greatly enhance their lifespan.
The 2018 Les Paul Studio has been equipped with a pair of superb humbucker pickups; a 57 classic in the neck position and a 57 classic + in the bridge position. Each pickup has been crafted to replicate authentic Gibson tones that made the Les Paul such a sought after model, while they also work relentlessly to cancel out any unwanted noise or interference for a much cleaner output.
The Les Paul Studio features four control pots for rhythm and lead Volume and Tone, including two push/pull controls for independent coil tapping.
Superior hardware and protection
For unrivalled sustain and resonance, the body is fitted with a chrome-plated aluminium Tune-o-Matic bridge accompanied by an aluminium Stop Bar tailpiece, the most acclaimed bridge/tailpiece combination that there is.
A protective Les Paul pickguard preserves the body top against scratches, while also complementing the finish of the guitar. For protection whilst out on the road or in storage, Gibson include a hardshell case and an accessory kit so you can enjoy your new purchase straight away.
