The Gibson Les Paul Studio Plus is celebrated by live performers and session players alike. This GIBSON GUITAR CENTER Exclusive Gibson Les Paul Studio Plus covers even wider sonic territory with its coil-splitting 490R/498T humbucking pickups. This combination unlocks plenty of creative textures to flesh out musical ideas, from classic cleans and modern crunch to single-coil spank. Spec’d with a stunning AA maple top and eye-popping custom nitro finish, this Studio Plus also benefits from an Ultra-modern weight-relieved body; this reduction of more than a pound in weight provides extra comfort for extended sessions and performances. A feature your fingers will thank you for is the SlimTaper mahogany neck, which re-creates the speed and playability that ’60s Les Pauls are famous for. Dependable Grover Rotomatic tuners keep this axe pitch-perfect and ready to rock. The Gibson Les Paul Studio Plus is a limited edition and only available at GIBSON GUITAR CENTER— so you’d better reserve yours while you can!
Classic mahogany/maple body is weight relieved for comfort
You can’t deny two fundamental guitar truths: that early Les Pauls were glorious, and they were also heavy. That’s the tradeoff of strapping a solid slab of mahogany and maple to your body. But Gibson has done something special with the modern Les Paul Studio Plus’s Ultra-modern weight-relieved body, which retains classic Les Paul resonance and sustain, while scoring a big reduction in weight. This just means you can enjoy yourself onstage for longer, and drag yourself out of bed more easily the next day.
SlimTaper mahogany neck plays fast and smooth
The neck on this Les Paul Studio Plus is a breath of fresh air. Its SlimTaper profile conforms naturally to the hand for smooth leads up top and fast licks and comfortable chording down low. If you’re looking for the playability of a ’60s Gibson with modern features, we highly recommend checking out the Studio Plus. You’re gonna love it.
Plek’d frets for precision playability
This Les Paul Studio Plus feels fast and precise thanks in large part to its Plek fret treatment. Typically reserved for top-dollar custom guitars, this process levels the frets with pinpoint precision, providing you with the most playable fretboard you’re likely to own. Each note rings loud and clear, and the fret edges feel smooth as silk.
