Does a Les Paul Studio perform well with classic rock and vintage? i.e. playin Floyd, Zeppelin, Beatles. Muddy Waters, Hendrix so on...

Yah..
a Les Paul studio is essentially a Les Paul standard.. without the maple cap and binding... and some say sub-par quailty overall, which really varies from guitar to guitar.

^True.

You really have to play ALOT of studios to find a good one.

A Les Paul Studio is everything other Les Pauls are, but without all the cosmetic add-ons.
Floyd and Hendrix used strats most of the time, but if you want to get somewhat close the neck pickup on an LP sounds pretty good.

I find its the same for most Les Pauls with a slight exception for Customs and Supremes...

I've played just as many subpar standards and classics, as studios.. its just studios are more prominent in stores because they are waaay cheaper.

LP Studio is essentially the same guitar as the LP Classic, without the binding. LP Studio DO have a 3/4" maple top too, only it's plain maple rather than the figured maple you find on an LP Standard (the same plain maple top you get on an LP Classic). And yes, you can get vintage rock tones out of it easily.

And generally, the rule of "you have to try many before finding a good one" applies to ALL Gibson Les Pauls, not just Studios. I've personally played more Studios that sound fantastic than Standards and Customs. And Supremes have chambered bodies, so they sound compeltely different. I don't care much for them at all.

Just to back everyone up here, make sure you try the one that you buy.

I find with Gibson Les Pauls the same rule applies as guitars like Mexican Strats. They are cracking guitars as long as you get a good example. Obviously a bad Mexican is going to be worse than a bad Les Paul, but you get the idea.

Yeah, my Studio didn't hold up very well on stage. Not sure if it's the guitar itself or just a freak coincidence that everything went at once... I still love that guitar though. It sounds excellent. But I think I'll be sticking to useing my Agile and LTD for stage guitars from now on.

I think you should take your Gibbo and your LTD to your next gig just to make sure it wasn't a freak occurance. If the Gibson starts messing up, just switch guitars.

I always have a backup. I mean, all I needed to do was retune the low E and I was fine for the last 2 songs I played, even with the string our of the notch. The pots / switch being loose didn't affect my playign at all. I didn't need to switch. But my LTD was waiting in the wings in case of more serious problems.
