One Guitar That Does It All

The Les Paul Studio has always been a truly versatile guitar to take to a recording session, gig, or anywhere else you need top performance in a no-nonsense Gibson. This year's Les Paul Studio 2017 HP takes the concept to a whole new level, both in looks and performance. High-performance playing features make it a superbly comfortable guitar, too, while a high gloss nitro finish coaxes luscious looks from a Grade-A flamed maple top complemented by pearl trapezoid inlays and chrome-plated hardware.

Slim Taper Neck For a Comfortable Play

The Gibson Les Paul Studio HP Electric Guitar features a speedy slim taperd neck profile that is perfect for players with smaller hands, or younger players. This slim tapered mahogany neck also makes it easier and more ergonomic to reach certain chords, as it allows the players fingers to be perpendicular to the fretboard, overall giving you more accuracy and clarity. As well as providing fluid hand flexibility, the mahogany neck is fused to the mahogany body using a mortise an tenon joint, and a provides a fast-access neck heel for playing fast solos.

409R and 498T+ Humbuckers With Coil-Tap Function for Range of Tones

Gibson’s 498T+ and 490R pickups provide the traditional characteristics of the original PAF pickups of the late 1950s, with a few upgrades for the modern player. These pickups are equipped with wax potting, which does away with any air space inside the pickup, therefore lessening the chances of undesirable microphonic feedback. This provides a humbucker with the tonal characteristics of an original PAF, with a slight increase in upper mid-range response. Controlling these PAF style humbuckers is easy, with the two volume and two tone controls, which feature a coil tap function with push/pull access, for a full range of sounds. Along with these controls, the 5-positions DIP switch incorporates the Neck and Bridge Pickup Tap or Split, Neck and Bridge Vol Treble Bleed control, and Transient Suppression for the ultimate choice of tone.

G Force Auto-Tuning System For Quick & Easy Tuning

The Les Paul Studio HP also features the G force self tuning system, which is an innovative system worked by a mechanical device that is secured to the headstock. Each machine head contains a small servo motor that can wind the string up or down. Simply push the on button and strum to see this device in action and perfectly tune your guitar. Not only does the G force tuning system provide standard tunings, it also offers alternate and custom tunings, tuning to instruments that are in tune with themselves but not to concert pitch, adding pitch offsets to individual strings, and tuning with a capo. Powered by a rechargeable battery, the G force system provides up to 100 tunings on one single charge, and also allows for manual tuning.

Titanium Zero-Fret Adjustable Nut

As well as providing the perfect sound and looks, the 2017 Les Paul is equipped with an innovative Nut. The Zero-Fret Adjustable Nut is a superior nut design in Gibson’s High-Performance series of guitars, due to its exceptional adjustability to match various playing styles. This cleverly designed Nut benefits from an all-titanium construction for extreme durability, and a retaining screw so the nut stays in place when you change strings. Like with bridge adjustments, the Zero-Fret Nut allows you to adjust the height and angle, for the optimum feel.

Aluminium Tune-O-Matic Bridge

The 2017 Les Paul Studio HP also features an Aluminium Tune-O-Matic bridge, which is an extremely popular fixed bridge type due to its stability, reliability, comfortable playing position and impressive sustain. Adjusting the string action and intonation is extremely simple with a tune-o-matic bridge, as you simply adjust the height of the bridge with the mounting rods to alter the action, and screw the bridge saddles in or out to achieve perfect intonation.

Added Accessories

As with all High Performance Gibson models, you receive an aluminium case for portability and storage, as well as a premium leather strap, Gibson’s multi-tool, and a polishing cloth. With all these great features, the Gibson Les Paul Studio HP Electric Guitar is the perfect choice for any level of player.
