If you think you know the Les Paul Studio, think again. This newest edition for 2017 may look similar but has undergone a serious diet in the form of an advanced new weight relief system to make the new Les Paul Studio, one of the lightest yet from Gibson. The High Performance spec adds a glorious new heel joint for unmatched upper fret access, a brand new hardware design and upgraded Gibson humbuckers (490R in neck position, 498T in bridge position).
The Gibson workhorse returns bringing new features and a radical new design.
Les Paul Studio 2017 HP the one guitar that does it all. The Les Paul Studio has always been a truly versatile guitar to take anywhere else you need top performance in a Gibson. This year's Les Paul Studio 2017 HP takes the concept to a whole new level, both in looks and performance. Sonic versatility is comprehensive, yet intuitive to handle: its 2 volume and 2 two tone controls all have push-pull functions (for individual tap/split, phase, and coil selection), while 5-positions DIP switch add Neck and Bridge Pickup Tap or Split, Neck and Bridge Vol Treble Bleed control, and Transient Suppression.
High-performance playing features make it a superbly comfortable guitar, too, while a high gloss nitro finish coaxes luscious looks from a Grade-A flamed maple top complemented by pearl trapezoid inlays and chrome-plated hardware. Delivered in a Gibson High Performance super premium stamped aluminum case, along with a Gibson premium leather strap, a Gibson multi-tool and a polishing cloth.
