A Lightweight LP for Heavyweight Rockers!

The name Les Paul conjures up different images for every guitar player. For some, it's a mellow jazz guitar that happens to be good for rock. For others, it's the aggressive tone monster that spawned the very concept of metal and is still rocking hard today. If you're more in tune with that second description, then boy do we have a Les Paul for you: the 2014 Gibson Les Paul Studio. With its fast-playing '60s SlimTaper neck carve and ultra-hot 490R/490T pickup combination, both you and your amp will appreciate the hot-rod performance the Les Paul Studio has to offer. What's more, your back will love the lightweight feel of its modern weight relief body.

Gibson 2014 Les Paul Studio Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Loaded with smoking-hot humbuckers for fat modern tones
  • SlimTaper neck feels great and provides exceptional playability
  • Your back will love this Les Paul's modern weight relief body
Loaded with smoking-hot humbuckers for fat modern tones

From thunderous power chords to screaming solos, you can't go wrong with the warmth, punch and midrange complexity you'll get from your Les Paul Studio. That's because Gibson loaded this bad boy with the tried-and-true combination of a 490R in the neck position and a 490T at the bridge. We've heard countless humbuckers here at Sweetwater, and these are some of the most aggressive and versatile models you'll find in the wold of passive pickups. But don't take our word for it - grab a Les Paul Studio, dime your amp, and find out for yourself.

SlimTaper neck feels great and provides exceptional playability

The Gibson Les Paul Studio sports a comfortable, fast-action neck with a '60s SlimTaper profile. Early Gibson guitars had huge, often ungainly necks. By 1960, Gibson had gradually carved down this profile into what became their SlimTaper neck. As your fingers moved down this neck, the precisely controlled width-to-thickness ratio of the Les Paul Studio's SlimTaper neck provides you with a consistent, fast, and comfortable feel. It's no wonder many life-long guitar players consider the SlimTaper Gibson's finest neck.

Your back will love this Les Paul's modern weight relief body

Here's a fact: the same characteristics that make mahogany an excellent tonewood also make it substantially heavier than choices like ash or alder. Over the course of an evening, that extra weight can become extremely tiresome on your back and shoulder. The modern weight relief chambering Gibson chose for the Les Paul Studio get rid of the vast majority of that added weight, without disturbing its fundamental tonal character. If anything, you'll notice a slight increase in resonance, which complements the Les Paul Studio's natural sustain and complex harmonics beautifully.
