No-nonsense performance and classic tones.
Ever since its introduction in 1983, the Les Paul Studio model has been enormously popular with players seeking the power and versatility of the original Les Paul Standard in a ready-for-action package, with a price to match. The instruments' reduced ornamentation”lacking body or fingerboard binding, and using plainer tops”has helped to put them in the hands of many more players, while their adherence to the Les Paul's hardware, pickup, and made-in-the USA construction traditions retained all the thick, meaty tone and unsurpassed playability for which the Standard has been known for nearly 60 years.
The Gibson Les Paul Studio Faded is available in two worn finishes, Blue Satin and Ebony Satin. Combine all this with a pair of humbucking pickups with Alnico V magnets, a '50s rounded mahogany neck with black obeche fingerboard, and a classic hardware complement, and you have a no-nonsense classic for rock, blues, fusion, or any musical style you care to apply it to.

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Studio Faded Electric Guitar:
I received this guitar on time. The frett board is more of a brown color and not black as show in the picture. The frett buzz was out of control. I got most of it out. Some of the screws that hold the back plate in were stripped out..Had to replace them with larger screws. The tone is..well amazing..i have had about 20 guitars and this one by far has had the best tone! I would rate the heaviness of the guitar in the middle.. It's not the weight of an ibanez sls or a schecter damien elite 6. somewhere in the middle. The stain on the wood is a little darker than the picture as well. The tuning knobs have almost a glow in the dar color to them..kinda of a light translucent green. The only upgrade i am making to this guitar is the jack plate. ordering a nickle metal one. i am very happy with this guitar, but i would of expected more from Gibson in the quality department. I also noticed a very small ding in the neck which is hardly noticable. i also added schallar chrome strap locks to this guitar..
