Gibson Les Paul Studio - its around £800 ($1600)

I play lead in a band, currently playing a fender strat. However its coming to its end of its time, and im looking for a new guitar. Do you guys rate this much?

Here are the specs:

Body - Carved maple top, Mahogany back

Neck/Profile - Mahogany/'59 Rounded Les Paul

Fingerboard/Inlay - Rosewood/Pearloid trapezoid

Scale/Nut Width - 243/4 inch - 111/16

Bridge/Tailpiece - Tune-o-matic/Stop bar

Hardware - Gold

Pickups - 490R Alnico magnet humbucker / 498T Alnico magnet humbucker

Controls - Two volume, two tone, three-way switch

Strings - Les Paul Signature .009-.046

I have basically that budget, so if you guys think that its crap, please give me your suggestions about other guitars

hi Mate,

I recently bought a les paul studio similair to those specs, its a an excellent guitar, the only difference is my studio has burstbucker pro pickups.

The main reason i got the guitar was because of the 59 neck profile ( i have big hands)+ the pickups. i own a strat, the gibson is much easier to play.

These guitars have a great thick sound, much heavier then a strat, great for metal blues hard rock etc.

What kind of music do u play?

Check out some jackson's or esp's before u make your decision.
