Advanced wiring gives this one an expanded palette of powerful sounds.
The arrival of the Gibson Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar in 1983 offered guitarists all the essential elements of a Les Paul Standard, including a carved top and humbucking pickups. Its simple yet elegant design quickly helped it become the most popular model in the Les Paul Series.
The Les Paul Studio Deluxe II '60s Electric Guitar raises the bar with the cutting-yet-rich tone of a 490R humbucking pickup in the neck position and a BurstBucker Pro humbucking pickup in the bridge position, which are mounted on a carved maple top with a mahogany back. Both pickups offer coil splitting for single-coil sounds and a boost circuit via push/push switching in the volume controls. œStraight Split coil-splitting offers pure single coil tone and differs from LP Standards and Studios that have a œSuper Tap coil-tap, which still has a small amount of humbucking. The boost circuit has a user-adjustable 10-dB boost for added power and frequency range for solos, single-note picking and dirty chording (depending on amp settings) and features true bypass that disengages the boost completely, ensuring pure passive Les Paul tone.
The hardware is finished in chrome including Grover tuners and Gibson's pioneering tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece. The Les Paul Studio Deluxe is dependable and affordable ” and is built without any compromises. The Gibson Les Paul comes with a hardshell case.

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe II '60s Neck Flame Top Electric Guitar:
When I first saw the guitar it caught my attention because I have never seen such a beautiful design on an Studio, that heritage cherry sunburst is marvelous. But then I played it, man let me tell you I fell in love. The 490R in the neck, BurstBucker Pro in the Bridge, the coil taps, the boost circuit it gives you a wide range of tones, The Les Paul classic Tone but also the sweet tone of a Strat.
-It has a AA maple cap
-It has a rosewood fretboard
-It has grover tuners
-Gloss nitro sides and back
-60`s neck profile
I also own an Gibson 2009 Les Paul Standard and I know it might sound odd but its true, the tone and feel of The Deluxe is way better.
I really recommend this guitar, it has everything and the price tag is very reasonable.
On a side note: I ordered from music123 and man they shipped fast, and the guitar was flawless, great job by them.
