2016 Gibson Les Paul Studio
Gibson Les Paul Studio Faded 2016 T
The ‘no-frills’ Les Paul is back. The Gibson Les Paul Studio Faded T 2016 is an incredibly well built, fantastic sounding guitar at an extremely affordable price. The guitar boasts the classic combination of mahogany body and maple cap but doesn’t have binding around the body and doesn’t have a glossy finish. Missing out on some of the aesthetic features seen on some more expensive Les Pauls means that the price can be kept down without sacrificing tone or playability.
The Les Paul Studio Faded comes loaded with a pair of incredible Gibson Burstbucker Pro pickups. These are very versatile pickups, giving you everything from thick, warm clean tones to blistering high gain sounds whilst still retaining that classic Les Paul character. The neck is a ’59 Rounded profile which is in between the classic 50s thickness and the 60s slim taper; it sits nicely in your left hand and will suit a range of players. Given that this is a Traditional (T) spec model, you’ve got a traditional set of tuners, regular nut and a classic neck width – like they were way back when! The worn finish of the guitar gives it some real character too; vintage sound and look!
Whether you’re looking for your first electric guitar or adding to a collection, the Gibson Les Paul Studio Faded T 2016 gives you classic Les Paul sound, look and feel at an affordable price. The pickups sound fantastic for any style of music and it plays superbly. Whilst it lacks on a few of the features seen on the more expensive Les Pauls, this is a superb choice for someone that wants a well built , quality, straight-forward guitar that looks and sounds the business.
