Product Description

Les Paul fanatics know that the Les Paul Studio is the way to go when you want that LP tone in an affordable electric guitar. The Gibson Les Paul Studio 2014 is a stunning step in the evolution of the Les Paul, featuring Gibson 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret, the popular 490R/490T humbucker combo with coil tap and cryogenic treated fret wire for longer life and corrosion resistance.


Gibson Les Paul Studio 2014 Electric Guitar Features
  • Mahogany Body with Grade A Figured Maple Top
  • Mahogany, ‘60s Slim profile Neck
  • 22 Fret, Rosewood Fingerboard
  • 490R and 490T humbuckers
  • Cryogenic treated fret wire
  • Includes Gibson Gig Bag
Body and Neck
The Les Paul Studio 2014 is crafted in the image of the original Les Paul Standard. It’s made from a solid mahogany back with modern weight relief for enhanced resonance and a lighter strapped-on feel, with a carved Grade-A figured maple top. Its glued-in maple neck features a slim ’60s profile, a rosewood fingerboard with 22 cryogenic treated frets for long life, traditional trapezoid inlays, and a commemorative 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret.

Pickups and Electronics
The guitar carries a pair of Gibson’s popular 490R and 490T humbucking pickups in the neck and bridge positions. These pickups are crafted in the image of the original PAFs with genuine Alnico magnets, but updated for the requirements of contemporary music. They are wired through the traditional complement of independent volume and tone controls and a three-way selector switch, but updated with coil-split switching and Orange Drop tone capacitors.

Hardware
Vintage-style tuners join a chrome Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece for outstanding resonance and sustain, while enlarged strap buttons (new for 2014) keep your guitar secure throughout the set. New dark-cream pickguard and pickup rings are contrasted by black Max Grip speed knobs for optimum on-the-fly control manipulation.

Case and coverage
The LP Studio comes protected in a Gibson gig bag, includes a truss-rod wrench and owner’s manual, and is backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson’s 24/7/365 Customer Service.

General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
Overall, this is an excellent value.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Build quality is first rate. No construction or finish flaws that I can see. The fret ends could use a LITTLE final dressing to smooth them out, but they're not at all sharp or painful.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Love the 60's slim profile neck and the modern weight relief is totally comfortable without the loose, flabby sound of the chambered LPs. Set-up out of the box is very nice. Again, the only minor thing I could quibble about is the fret ends could use a little extra smoothing, but it's not a big deal. The fret ends are the only reason I gave feel 4 out of 5 stars. My base model American Fenders have perfectly dressed fret ends.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
The stock 490 pups are quite bright, but full of upper harmonic detail and complexity. They nicely bridge the gap between singles and buckers. Of course, you also have coil taps on both for ever more of a single coil sound. If you use darker pedals/amps, these pups will smoke. I will likely switch them out for a warmer PAF model of similar vintage output. This is the only reason I gave sound 4 out of 5 stars. Frankly though, the stock pups are totally fine if they suit you.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
Finish job is perfect. Love the satin on the back of the neck, which feels much better than high gloss.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
I plan to buy another one. These are priced in-line with Fender's base model Americans. I do wish the Gibson LP cases were priced as low as Fender's. I bought a generic LP hard shell that fit's this guitar perfectly.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
Set-up and action were excellent for me out of the box. I may fine tune it as time goes on.
