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.

I could not let 120th Anniversary go by without one
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
For the money invested, this is a fine guitar. I did not expect a $3000 Les Paul, nor did I get one, but I did get a great $1100 guitar.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
The quality of craftsmanship is on par with what one will expect from Gibson USA, save for the finish which is adequate for this price range, but the polish is not there. Then again , this is not the gloss lacquer on more expensive guitars, but it could have been polished better.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
This is the lightest of the 7 Les Pauls that I have owned and that plays into ease of handling, though I am a big fellow and the heavier ones never bothered me.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
490 T & R pickups combined with the lightened body give this an almost SG sound which is not a bad thing.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
Again I refer to the paint as adequate but the polish could have been better. This is not a sloppy job at all, but rather nice , save for the final buffing, strictly a matter of taste.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
I got more for the price than I had assumed while shopping for a 120th Anniversary Gibson. I feel like I did not pick the guitar because it was the least expensive, but saw it as a great value.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
The action out of the box could not possibly suit my taste 100% as I did not set it up, though it is very nice and well intonated.
