2021 Gibson Les Paul Studio Smokehouse Satin, Near-Mint w/ Case & Tags


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2021 Gibson Les Paul Studio in near-mint condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case, CoA, and case candy. This iteration of the Les Paul Studio platform is a no-frills tone machine, sporting a Smokehouse Satin finish and loaded with a pair of 490R/498T humbuckers.

Lightweight at 8lbs 2oz, tonewoods comprise a mahogany body, two-piece maple top, and mahogany neck capped with a rosewood fretboard. Via the 490R and 498T humbucker pair, the guitar has plenty of power on tap, and these alnico magnet pickups cover a wide tonal range. The 490R is Gibson's Modern Classic humbucker, featuring Alnico II magnets and similar in its response to a PAF, yet with more midrange emphasis. The 498T Hot Alnico bridge position pickup has Alnico V magnets, with plenty of muscle and growl, well-suited for high gain scenarios. Each pickup has a dedicated coil tap on its Volume knob, Additionally, the push/pull coil taps at the Volume knobs enable single coil sparkle and snap. This Les Paul Studio has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.
