Les Paul Studio 2017 T
The Workhorse. Now with Extra Horse Power.
The Workhorse. Now with extra horse power. Beautiful yet simple, the Les Paul Studio offers everything you demand from a Les Paul and then some. Lighter than ever, the 2017 Les Paul Studio T benefits from our new Ultra-Modern weight relief that offers endless sustain and hours of comfortable playing, while its slim-taper neck profile is ideal for fast yet comfortable playing. A combination of 490R and 498T humbuckers provides genuine Gibson tones with a hint of modernity and aggression, wired to comprehensive controls and coil splitting for outstanding sonic versatility. This versatile performer is delivered in a classic Gibson brown hardshell case, along with a premium leather strap, a Gibson multi-tool, and a polishing cloth.
