Phattest lady for the lowest price!!!

AdvantagesAmazing build, clarity and tone... perfection in intonation and action.

DisadvantagesIf you're looking for something light... forget it!

"...I take part in. The Gibson Les Paul Studio features pretty much the same build specifications of any other Gibson Les Paul. It is a Mahogany Body with a maple top, set thru neck. Never had any problems with fret buzz, no problems with intonation, any string gauge that I have tried has worked beautifully and on the go and it has never, ever, let me down. The Action can go really low (the strings can get really close to the neck) and the clarity ..." Read review

Gibson Les Paul Studio

AdvantagesA good buy if you are thinking of buying a Les Paul guitar

DisadvantagesOther guitars offer better value for money

"...and the range of Gibson tones available is wider than that. It can be made to sound like an SG by using the tone controls, and it is possible to approach the "woman" tone of the ES335 with this guitar! It plays acceptably, although the bridge has to be on its lowest setting, and I have other guitars with a better action. I like the short scale on Gibson guitars - it suits my small hands, and gives a little more tension with light strings than a ..." Read review

Get Ahead, Get a Gibson

Advantagesplays like no other guitar I have ever owned

DisadvantagesDamned Expensive

"...I opened the parcel the Gibson logo shone up at me from the very sturdy looking hard case. With trembling fingers I opened the latches and pulled back the velvet covering. There it lay, unmarked by fingerprints, metalwork gleaming, I felt like Harry Potter when he unwrapped his Firebolt for the first time. The first thing I noticed when I lifted my baby from the case is that Gibson have done something about the weight. Their solid mahogany ..." Read review

Cuts it fine.

AdvantagesGreat sound

DisadvantagesNot hard wearing

"... Features (8/10) --------------- The Usual Gibson features are present on the Studio. It has the tone Toggle switch (which can get worn out if you play too much with it), Volume and tone control. My pick ups and hardware are all finshed in Chrome. Some of the cheaper Gibsons tarnish if you have the gold metalwork. The body is not as deep as a Standard Les Paul and seems much lighter. The ebony and rosewood fretboard gives a stark contrast ..." Read review

Gorgeous tones shame about its face!

AdvantagesClassic Styling, Superb Playability, Authentic Tones

DisadvantagesHeavy, Doesnt Look Quite as Good as The Real Thing

"...headstock History Back in the day gibson and fender battled it out for supremacy in the guitar world and fender released their popular stratocaster model while gibson had their les paul model both retailed at around the same price. i own both a strat and a les paul and i cannot see why there was any comparison while the guitars were at the same kinda price. Comparison Strength - 10/10 The les paul wins hands down i cant tell you how ..." Read review

A good versatile guitar let down by QC

AdvantagesVersatile, tough, nice finish

DisadvantagesQuality of hardware

"...for it. Personally, I use Gibson polish and it keeps it looking new. Hardware isn't the best though. Mine had a couple of issues pretty much straight from the word go. The nut kept pinching the B string and has worn to a point there is fret buzz when played open. Very disappointing. Toggle switch also has dirty contacts and can cut out intermittently in the neck position. Very frustrating. My budget cheap knock off Strat has had no problems and ..." Read review

Gibson Les Paul Studio Fireburst Review

AdvantagesExcellent sound, Superb body shape, very playable

Disadvantagesyou can't put it down

"...first place to buy the Gibson Les Paul Studio Fireburst. I have played Gibson guitars for around 6 years and i have never been disappointed by them. The structure and build of the guitar is superb. Also , in my opinion, the tones of the guitar are so versatile you can play anything from classic rock to blues to heavy metal on a Gibson and it will sound fantastic. I own a Gibson Les Paul Studio Fireburst and I use it for practicing quietly and for ..." Read review

beauty+ sound and decent price

AdvantagesUnchambered... well balanced... great sound... good price

DisadvantagesNo binding...not recommended for very high volumes.

"...studio is basically entry level gibson and I recommend it for any gibson beginner ( note I did not say:beginner, I said gibson beginner) first off it is very affordable if you look at the $2499 that you will be paying if you bought a standard, I bought mine used for $925 and it was worth every penny, first let's start with the finish, the fireburst finish is very beautiful and usually gibson guitars with this finish sell for more than their wine red ..."
