The arrival of the Les Paul Studio in 1983 offered guitarists all the essential elements of a Les Paul Standard, including a carved top and humbucking pickups, in a simple yet elegant design. It quickly became the most popular model in the Les Paul Series. Cutting-yet-rich tone -- the hallmark of the LP -- pours out of the 490R and 498T alnico magnet humbucker pickups mounted on a carved maple top with a mahogany back. Rosewood fretboard with trapezoid inlays makes for great looks while dual volume and tone controls provide complete command of your sound. Includes Gibson hardshell case.
