The Gibson Les Paul Studio 2016 T is a stripped-down Les Paul with power to spare!

The Gibson Les Paul Studio 2016 T blends timeless tonewoods and components with improved comfort, powerful humbucking pickups with built-in coil-splitting switching for the added versatility of single-coil tones, and the classic looks that define it as a genuine Gibson Les Paul.

The Gibson Les Paul Studio 2016 T is tone-assured right from the start, thanks to a foundation of the traditional tonewoods that helped to make the Les Paul Standard legendary when it first arrived six decades ago. A carved solid maple top lends bite and articulation to the sound, while a select mahogany back—treated with Gibson’s new modern weight relief pattern to increase playing comfort and enhance resonance—contributes superb warmth and depth. A solid, quarter-sawn mahogany neck is glued in and carved in the fast '60s SlimTaper profile, and topped with a rich brown granadillo fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets and traditional trapezoid inlays. In keeping with the stripped-down Studio ethos, the body and fingerboard are left unbound, but the Gibson Les Paul Studio 2016 T retains elegant touches in its pickguard, hot-stamped truss-rod cover, and black or gold speed knobs, depending on finish. Classic Gibson construction ensures optimum playability, too, along with traditional specs like a 24-3/4" scale length, a 1-11/16" width across the PLEK-cut Corian nut, and a 12-inch fingerboard radius for smooth, easy bending.

A pair of Gibson USA's Modern Classics humbucking pickups prime the Les Paul Studio for unparalleled tonal versatility. Both are made in the image of the legendary PAF humbucker, with Alnico magnets and 42-AWG wire, but adapted for the demands of contemporary players. A 490R in the neck position offers vintage warmth and throaty blues tones, while a hotter 498T in the bridge belts out all the scorch, sizzle and sustain you require. Furthermore, both are wired for coil splitting, with individual push-pull tone-control switching to tap authentic single-coil tones, which are even wired for hum cancelling in the middle position. The innovative pairing of a Tune-O-Matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece ensure solid sustain and precise intonation, while a set of high-quality TonePros vintage-style tuners ensure smooth, accurate tuning. Comes complete with a hardshell case.

Features:

  • Mahogany body with Solid Carved Maple top
  • High-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish
  • Mahogany neck with slim, fast ’60s-style profile
  • Coil-tapped 490R and 498T humbucking pickups in the neck and bridge
  • Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece
  • TonePros vintage style tuners with 14:1 tuning ratio

Comments about Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar with Gibson Hardshell Case:

This is the best sounding guitar I have. Excellent sustain and crunch, better than the SG standard. Very balanced, resonant sound. Sound a little on the dark side due to the pickups. At first I didn't like the 50s rounded neck but I got somewhat used to it. The maple top does help give it more crunch and sustain than the faded series. The guitar is a nice, light weight due to chambered body. Purists will tell you not to get a chambered guitar because it affects the sound negatively but I disagree. I think you get a nice thick sound with this guitar and it's a comfortable weight. My only criticism is the lack of contrast on the black model. The all black is very boring, serious, goth-looking. I replaced the black pickguard and toggle switch and pickup holders with cream ones. I also replaced the black knobs with gold knobs and it looks much better. this is a quality guitar IMO. I prefer it to some of the more expensive gibson les paul models.

If some one puts a "Seymour Duncan Hot Rodded Humbucker" pickup at this guitar, will be a great instrument, professional for shows, and great for play in studios.

      Best Uses

      • Great all-around guitar

      Comments about Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar with Gibson Hardshell Case:

      I looked at all the Les Paul models and chose a wine red studio with gold hardware. It's a beutiful instrument and plays great. From a pure function stand point, the difference between this, the standard, and custom are minimal. You're adding slightly better hardware, pickups, and more bling as you go up the line. You're getting 80-90% of the performance and playability for a fraction of the price. I just couldn't justify paying the difference. If money's not an issue, by all means get a more up-scale model.

      • Lighter than Epi

      Cons

      • Pickups

      Best Uses

        Comments about Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar with Gibson Hardshell Case:

        I wanted to do some mods to split the coils on the pickups. It was supposed to have 490r and 498t pickups with 4 wire cable, but had single wire instead. The volume and tone pots are mounted to a circuit board. Only way to mod this guitar is to replace all the electronics, including pickups. Overall, the guitar has a good feel and is lighter than the Epiphone counter part. Not bad if you are happy with the limited tone from stock. Middle position on the 3-way switch has very little to no change compared to Rythem. Seems that Gibson has gone cheap on this one, but not on the price tag.
