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.

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.
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.
