Not a fan of the studio...but that's just because I played so many crappy ones at stores... .


I say go to a store and check em' out for yourself....Gibson have been lacking in their quality.

I have a Gibson LP Studio myself that's wine red. There's absolutely nothing wrong wtih it. Best guitar that I've played on and I enjoy it immensely.

I'm not really a fan of the studio....if you are looking to buy a LP i would save some money and try to get a second hand standard...thats my two cents
Ask me no questions, i will tell you no lies...

I've got a studio. Good guitar - it's no LP Custom by a long shot - there are large differences, but it's a good axe - definately not a crapper. Th eonly complaint i have is that the pickups aren't that great. If you'r eplannin on usin a Studio seriously, plan on swappin out the pickups. Otherwise it's good.

ive seen and carried a natural wood color LP studio... it does feel pretty light but it looks pretty cool. if only the standard or classic come in that finish.
#11
Studios are nice. So they have no binding (who cares), 490R and 498T alnico pickups (they sound good to me), slimmer version of the 50's neck (thick, but perfect for my hands). It is a great guitar. I personally would not give up my Studio for anything. I suggest playing it to be sure you like the neck, If you do get it, you won't regret it.

i think i would like the 50's neck... my only gripe about my epi les paul is the fact the neck is kind of thick, and i heard that all epi LP's come with 60s style necks. maybe the 50's style would be perfect for me.

nothing wrong with the studio - I've got a gothic (not the new one with the EMG's, the one that was discontinued in '02), and its a beast. I also have an SG special in faded cherry, and it looks great. Go and play it in store, see what you think.

I know this isnt going to win me any friends, but in terms of looks, i actually prefer the studio to the standard. Its all down to one little detail - the way the body binding just comes to an abrupt end where it meets the neck. I cant explain how much I hate that.

its that stripe u see around the edge of the body and neck. like for me, my guitar is black, but there is a cream stripe that goes around the edges of the whole guitar except the headstock.

ok before you people yell at me for being difficult.

You do not want a gibson. maybe you think you do but do you really want to have a guitar that everyone else has? you'll never have your own sound. now IF you have an amazing sound box then maybe. but every gibson i play (no matter how hard i try) it ends up sounding like someone else famous is playing. sure it's fun for awhile but it get's old really quick.

this is just my opinion...normally i wouldn't say anything but you asked for it so i gave it to you. do what you want of course i'm not your agent or anything

He is not going to get a "Unique sound" from a guitar in that price range. Don't get me wrong, I agree with you completely, but he would have to spend significantly more and order a custom shop model in order to do that.

The 60's neck is thinner and much faster. It comes on LP Classics.

The 50's neck is thicker and has jumbo frets.

i got em mixed up then... i meant the 50's style. i think they also come as optional on the standards and studios.

I have that guitar with a Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates in the neck and a JB in the bridge and love it.

I've played it up against an LP standard and mine plays and sounds better.

i'm not an idiot. all i'm saying is that gibsons are being overused. In this forum alone about 70% of these people are getting gibsons. and no your wrong about mass produced guitars sounding like everyone else. i've play fenders and can find my own sound and same with almost everyother guitar but when it comes to gibson, original sound is almost non-existent.

yes, they are nice looking, but i dont think its a big enough deal to make or break whether or not u want a certain guitar... apparently a lot of people dont like the LP studios for the sole fact it does not have binding. i think the studios are nice guitars and the fact it has no binding doesnt bother me one bit.
#28
Ok, first things first, that LP is techincally not a studio. It's the model below (vintage). It's still a fairly nice guitar. As has been stated earlier, go play one first, cause QC can be a little suspect on those models (I've played 3, 2 I liked, 1 I hated). Livetodie, you know not what you speak. I can get my own unique sound out of any Gibson I pick up. And your tone is mostly from your amp anyway, so I'm pretty sure you're an idiot (which has already been stated I believe). Quit going to every Gibson thead and bashing them, if you have nothing useful to say about the specific issue, butt out!!!

So you're telling me Zakk Wylde, who plays a Les Paul, and Jeff Beck's first two cd's, which he played a Les Paul on, sound the same? Their tones aren't unique? Then you're also sayin that Jimmy Page sounds just the same as Jerry Cantrell, right? And Greg Tribbett from Mudvayne played a Les Paul on LD 50, so he sounds just like Jeff beck and Zakk Wylde, right?

You are being an idiot. Think before you speak - it will meet with better results than these.

ehh i dont like the studios i would rather go with a standard les paul and you can still get the wood finish but i prefer the nice tiger stripe finish

I had the same guitar. Anyway, it was the best guitar I have owned. As far as the sound with the Burstbucker Pros, wow... I say for the money you can't beat it. I had to pay off a bill and the weight got to me.. that's the only reason she's gone! Check it out!
