Is there any difference between a studio electric guitar (i.e. Gibson Les Paul Studio) and a like.. non-studio one? (i.e. a Stratocaster)

Is there any difference in sound or anything?

Is it retarded to play a studio guitar out of the studio, like at a concert?

studio guitars tend to have less emphasis on looks and are generally heavier, at least in my experience.

Well, I know there's a difference brand-wise. Disregard the brands, though. I'm asking straight up the differences between a studio guitar and a regular one.

In my experience there is no difference. I've seen videos of a couple of my favorite bands recording and they used the same guitars and basses as on stage. They use a hell of a lot more equipment and precise wiring though. One amp head that my favorite guitarist uses is 15,000 dollars. He uses 3.. He will also not disclose what amplifier cab and speakers he uses, he has a printed cloth cover over it.

mainly the quality and the looks. although a studio is still as good its of less quality. and yes many people play studios at concerts its not retarded its just cheaper. i got an alpine white les paul studio for 3 or 4 hunderd dollars cheaper and the only difference is the neck binding basically. and pickups maybe

I heard that if you take a studio guitar out of the studio it will burst into flames.
Which begs the question: how do they get the guitar INTO the studio???

Very few brands actually use "studio" in the name of their instruments. A studio guitar such as a LP studio isn't specifically geared toward studio use. It just means that the look of the instrument isn't the main selling point, but rather the sound is. In other words, a LP studio isn't as flashy as an LP supreme, but it'll sound just as good for 2 grand less.
