From Our Research Team:
Back-to-basics Look and a Great ValueThe Gibson Les Paul Studio Faded features a smooth, unbound body and a traditional carved maple top, whose beautiful faded finish lends the look of a well-worn guitar. A '59 rounded neck profile with a baked maple fingerboard and two screaming Burstbucker Pro pickups give you a world of classic Les Paul playability. The '59 neck profile is a nice compromise between the original chunky neck and the "slim tapered" carve that followed in the '60s.
Classy pearloid trapezoid markers give this Les Paul Studio Faded the classic Les Paul feel, and a modified heel shape gives you easy access to the upper frets, letting you really dig into your solos! Thanks to a pair of Burstbucker Pro pickups, the Les Paul Studio Faded also gives you that big, fat, smoky humbucker sound. So if you want traditional Les Paul sound and amazing playability - all at a fantastic price - you need a Les Paul Studio Faded!

by Paulbiz from Northern VAWas looking for a no nonsense humbucker-loaded guitar to compliment my Fenders and PRS guitars. Saw this one on the Sweetwater site and the Burstbucker Pros and 59' neck (a personal preference) made i... read more [+]t a no-brainer - especially for well under $1000. My concerns about Gibsons are their notoriously unstable tuning problems. I got the guitar just this past Friday and gigged with t Friday night then again on Saturday. Tuning is just as stable as any of my Fenders - very nice! But the really good news is how great this guitar sounds. The burstbuckers and resonant body give a tight focused punch that really made my rig come alive. This may be the best sounding guitar I own - especially for the blues and harder rock stuff - it flat out smokes! The clean sounds are certainly respectable as well - a nice crisp snap. Playability is really good right out of the box, the action and intonation are spot on...though I may lower the action just a tad later - but it sure does feel right and I bonded with the guitar immediately. Body is light too - which is good for my back! The blue may not be everyones cup of tea but I love it and it got quite a few compliments - its really a minimalist work of art - looks great on stage. So far no real cons - its an excellent value and a fun guitar to play. close [-]

by Rad from hunter,nyI had just played a LP selling for 2,500 dollars at a local music store. My brown baby was on the way. I asked the person who handed me the guitar and was a lead player himself if he had an opinion of... read more [+] the studio models and he just dismissed them as hollow bodies. I played on the full bodies and heavy, high gloss black LP for awhile and was impressed with the tone. I had never played and LP before and enjoyed the way the tone controls, with their treble roll off only, worked. 2 days later I got my faded brown studio and fell in love. I love this guitar and would not trade it for the more expensive one. The unique Sweetwater ability to view and choose your guitar was why I chose them over other sites with the same price.
