Gibson / Les Paul Studio Satin / 2012 / Blue Stain / Guitar
Just like the most revered Les Paul Standards of all time, the Les Paul Studio Satin starts with the classic tonewood combination of a mahogany body with solid carved maple top. Together, these woods offer outstanding tonal depth and richness from the mahogany, with superb clarity and “snap” from the maple. In this model, the strategic placement of several tone chambers enhances resonance while also reducing the guitar’s overall weight considerably, without sacrificing an ounce of punch or sustain. And even in this more affordable instrument from Gibson USA, the glued-in, solid-mahogany neck is cut to the superior “quarter-sawn” grain orientation for superior strength and optimum resonance transfer between neck and body. The neck is carved to a comfortably rounded ’50s profile that measures .818” at the 1st fret and .963” at the 12th. It is topped with a 22-fret fingerboard made from hard, brown baked maple, a wood selected for its sustain and bite. Traditional acrylic trapezoid inlays grace the board, but a lack of fingerboard and body binding help to keep costs down, while enhancing the raw, ready-to-rock look of this Studio model.
To make optimum use of all that sweet resonance and singing sustain, the Les Paul Studio Satin carries a pair of Gibson’s best pickups. Updated from the acclaimed Burstbucker pickups that populate numerous instruments from Gibson Custom, the Burstbucker Pros on this guitar give you all the renowned warmth, growl and zing of genuine PAF humbuckers, with biting Alnico V magnets. The set includes a slightly overwound bridge pickup for searing lead tones, and both pickups feature wax-potted coils to squelch microphonic squeal at high volumes. Together, they provide everything from warm, vocal blues tones in the neck position, to snappy in-between settings, to phenomenal crunch and wail in the bridge position. To further maximize all that vibrational energy, Gibson includes its legendary Tune-o-matic bridge and stud-mounted wraparound tailpiece, along with a PLEK-cut Corian nut, and a set of vintage-style TonePros™ tuners. Wrap it all in a grab-and-go Gibson gigbag, with owner’s manual and coverage by Gibson’s Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 Customer Service, and you’ve got one of the best values going in a genuine Les Paul, only from Gibson USA.

Typical Guitar Store ‘snobby’ attitude, is not welcome here. We have EXTENSIVE KNOWLEDGE here, but, we do NOT know everything!

We are never offended by the customer who is ‘just looking’. Guitars are meant to played. They are not merely things at which to be stared. We like to see a fine instrument in a persons hands, not on the wall.
