A Great Look on a Value-packed Les PaulThe Gibson Les Paul Studio Satin solidbody electric guitar is a great looking variation one of the most-played guitars in the world, with a sweet Satin Fireburst finish. Ever since its introduction in 1952, the Les Paul has had an impact on both guitar players and on music itself. What started out as Gibson's answer to the introduction of solidbody guitars in 1950, turned out to be perhaps the most influential of them all. What started out as a simple gold-top guitar has turned into a veritable rainbow of colors, in configurations to meet everyone's needs, wants and yes, even budget. You have a carved maple top over a chambered mahogany body, a '50s-profile mahogany neck with a baked maple fingerboard and two screaming Burstbucker Pro humbucking pickups. The Les Paul Studio Satin is a performing guitarist's dream come true.
Gibson Les Paul Studio Satin Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
Carved maple top in Satin Fireburst finish over a mahogany body
The Gibson Les Paul has seen an array of finishes and tops over the years while maintaining the classic look and sound. This Les Paul Studio Satin features a new Satin Fireburst finish on the carved maple top, and a chambered mahogany body for lower weight - the timeless recipe for smoky tones, incredible sustain, and excellent note definition.
'50s-profile mahogany neck with baked maple fingerboard
The first Les Pauls had huge necks. This Gibson Les Paul Studio Satin has the '50s neck profile, which strikes a great balance between the classic feel of a larger neck with the faster playability of a rounded profile. And Gibson claims that baking the maple for the fingerboard not only gives it a matured look similar to rosewood, it makes it harder and more resistant to moisture.
Two Burstbucker Pro Humbucking Pickups
When you're talking about a Les Paul, you're talking about that big, fat, smoky humbucker sound. This Gibson Les Paul Studio Satin sports dual Burstbucker Pro humbucking pickups for the classic tone you crave. Plug into your favorite tube amp, peg the Les Paul's volume controls, and hold on!

The Real Deal, slightly undressed
by Tom W from Columbia, MOThis guitar has THE sound, and the chambered body makes it much easier to wear than the heavy Les Paul logs of the past.
