    Les Paul Satin Yellow Studio

    I had been looking for this color for ever. Nowhere to be found. Combing the internet daily I finely found one. It was 60 miles from where I live. Being that Yellow was one of my favorite colors I had to have it. Finely there it was, this flawless Satin Yellow Studio drawing me in like a magnet. Made the purchase and headed home as fast as my beater would allow me. As I finely made it home, I placed my Beautiful Gibson in my stand and stood back and looked a every inch of my guitar the shined like a bright lite. I plugged it into my amp and the sound was to die for and the feel of the neck was so smooth, I felt like jumping up and down like a 10 yr. old. I have to say, Gibson is my favorite brand and for the money it can't be beat.

    I love this guitar!

    I’ve searched everywhere and haven’t found a review for the yellow satin Gibson Les Paul, so I thought I’d be the first since I now own one.
    I spent a whole weekend going from music store to music store looking for a new guitar after intensive on-line research. My first choice was a PRS Carlos Santana but after playing one I decided it just wasn’t for me. The sound was a bit too smooth for my taste. But, hey, if it’s a Carlos it’s should be smooth. I guess researching guitars on-line is fine in theory, but just like buying a bicycle, you have to try it before making a decision. So my search began in earnest. I plugged in guitar after guitar looking for the sound and feel just right for me. Finally I said to the salesman, “Do you have any Les Pauls that won’t break the bank”? He walked away and returned with this a beautiful satin yellow Les Paul Studio. I wondered to myself, “Why is he bringing that. It’s way over my budget”. I reasoned with myself, “Yea, buy that it’ll give the hubby another heart attack!”. I promptly plugged it in and strummed a few chords. Immediately I heard that deep satisfying crunchy Les Paul sound. Believe me, there’s no mistaking it. I could even feel it resonate deep in my bones. Despite trying to look reserved and demure, I couldn’t help but break out in a big smile. A customer walking by said “I saw that. That’s the guitar for you”! Which remarkably, was exactly what I happened to be thinking at that very moment. I was sure the Les Paul was out of my league so I proceeded to ask the salesman the price as I sighed ready to hand the guitar back in defeat. “$799” said he to my complete surprise. Needless to say I quickly left the store with guitar in hand before he could change his mind. That was a month ago. After many hours of play, I still can’t help but smile every time I play this guitar.
    The specs on the yellow satin Les Paul are the same as the specs on the studio faded models. What distinguishes this guitar from the rest of the pack is the satin yellow finish. I really like this color especially with the black pick guard and accents. This guitar reminds me of the yellow Les Paul Junior that Billy Joe Armstrong plays. I’m not completely sure but I do believe it’s the same exact color. I was concerned that the painted finish might produce a different sound than the stained models but I tried them too and could not distinguish a difference. I also determined that the neck is smoother on the painted guitar then on the stained wood models I played. But, that’s just my personal opinion. See what you think.
