Hi all, I asking this question for my friend who is by my side right now. He is wanting to buy a Les Paul Studio from an online dealer and he really likes the looks of Pick guards.
Sooo, does they come with holes so you can put on a Pickguard?
I don't know if I ever saw a Studio with one so this got me curious enough to ask this.

Thanks~

If it doesnt come with a pickguard, then the holes wont be there.
To be honest, it's really not that hard to drill 2 holes.

i have a gibson les paul studio. it has a pickguard, you can drill holes if they're not already there (be careful)

even if they didn`t it`s not exactly hard to install them yourself, they`res a vid on youtube that even gives you step by step instruction.

I thought that higher end Les Pauls don't have the pickguard attatched? Maybe they don't attach them for Standards on?

Standards don't have the pickguard. Traditional's come with them already. I like the look so that contributed to me going with a traditional among other reasons. I believe all studio's come with the pickguard as well

I think they still give you a pickguard with Standards, they just don't attach it in case you don't want the holes. I take the pickguard off anyway, because its practically impossible to even hit the finish with the raised top, and it doesn't look as good imo.
