The difference is mainly in cosmetics. The Studio is the least fancy.

The Studio doesn't have body binding. That's the only difference I can think of right off the top of my head though.

Well, theyre heavy as **** to begin with.

IMO, Lookswise, its:
1. Custom
2. Standard
3. Studio

Tonewise:
1. Studio
2. Standard
3. Custom (havent played one)

But then again I am biased :P

Well I was under the impression that the Studio was the 'lowest quality' so should be at the bottom of your list

Studio - Looks are about as plain as Anne Robinson, the pickups are the basic set (490r/498t)
Standard - prettier, Burstbucker pickups as opposed to the bog-standard ones on the studios
Custom - F'cking god-like in looks, 57 classic pickups (which I think are the most high-up of gibsons's lil range, and tbh for that price they'd Better sodding be)
The rig:
Gibson SG faded special -> Marshall MG 50/100 (working on a valve amp)

The difference is that the studio has no binding, does not have a flamed top like the other two, and has different pickups. Custom is obviously handmade. Standard has i better sound in my opinion, because of the burstbuckers. If u play metal u might like the studio, because the pickups have a brighter sound. The burstbuckers have a muddier, fatter sound, better suited for blues/rock. But thats just my opinion, u gotta go to guitar center and try them out, although i dont think they let u try out the custom.

They will. They better, I know I wouldnt buy a guitar without playin it.

They do, It was funny because i actually did not too long ago. I was like "Please grab me a Custom off the wall bro." He goes "I'll get you plugged in, in 1 sec." I respond "Am I going to a get a different les paul sound?" He laughed and said alright, just ask if ya ened anything. I plugged in about 5 min later.

Les Paul Customs and Custom Shop Les Pauls aren't the same thing.

Well you could say that a custom is "better" but you gotta take into account factors such as price, colors offered, pickups, and the fact that u might not wanna take a custom to a gig for fear of it being stolen.

Im getting a standard this friday. Woot!!!

Studio is just the standard but they don't make it to look amazingly good...that's why it's STUDIO. You play it in the STUDIO...ha

The Custom has an ebony fretboard, too making it a brighter tone. Mids are much more pronounced with the Custom, but in all honesty - doesnt really justify the 3000+ price tag.
I got my 87 Custom off eBay for 1500 shipped )

Studios are made from offcuts of lower grade wood than the woods used for the Standards, Classics and Customs. They are, for all intents and purposes, made of hacked-up plywood. The pickups are also lower quality. It doesn't take a genius to see that the Studio should never be touched. Even just an Epiphone Standard has a higher quality body, top and neck than the Gibson Studio has.
#26
What about the specials? I've been looking at a Gibson Les Paul Special singlecut with a Lindy Fralin humbucker in the neck position and a Seymour Duncan in the bridge...



It's used, but there's almost no tear...
