Stripped down, bare bones rocker with some incredible unique features!
Packing all the power and sonic versatility of the upscale Buckethead Signature Les Paul, the Gibson Buckethead Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar offers unparalleled potential for 21st century sonic mayhem, at a price every tone twister can afford.
A talent as large and unique as that of Buckethead (aka Brian Patrick Carroll) requires an equally unique guitar to get the job done, and for years Buckethead has expressed his musical personality through highly customized Gibson Les Paul-style instruments. To bring the rarified look and tone of Buckethead's own guitars to hardworking rock guitarists, Gibson USA introduces the Buckethead Les Paul Studio.

- Oversized, chambered Mahogany body with Satin White finish
- Dark, durable torrefied Maple fingerboard
- Coil-tapped 496R neck and 500T bridge humbucking pickups
- Two custom arcade style push-button kill switches allow dramatic performance effects

At a glance, the Buckethead Les Paul Studio might appear to be just a modified Gibson Les Paul with a satin white finish, but a closer look reveals a plethora of hidden specs that make this an extremely unusual guitar. With an oversized, chambered Les Paul body, unmarked torrefied maple fingerboard, Buckethead's choice of Gibson 496R and 500T ceramic humbuckers, and ‘arcade’ style kill switches and a push/pull tone control for splitting the bridge pickup, this Les Paul is like no other. Gibson has designed it for utmost performance for the contemporary rock, metal, and shred performer.
The Buckethead Les Paul Studio's extended 27 inch scale length offers unprecedented harmonic shimmer and a firm low end like nothing you have ever heard in a six-string electric, and helps you to create your own unique voice and styling, whether you keep it in standard tuning or drop it into any of the alternative dropped and open tunings that it handles so well. A chambered mahogany body with solid carved maple top not only reduces the weight of this oversized guitar, but retains the classic rich yet clear tonal signature of the Gibson Les Paul Standard.
Gibson's legendary Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece keep the Buckethead Les Paul Studio locked and loaded, while a Satin White finish offers a fast and tactile playing feel straight out of the case. With the Gibson Les Paul Studio's down-to-business appeal and Buckethead's unique specs and modifications, the Buckethead Les Paul Studio is primed to achieve tonal heights attainable by no other guitar out there.
