Gibson studio guitars are one of those guitars that match the demands of the budgeted musician. Gibson has successfully built guitars that reach to the highest of platform and have been played by the most famous musicians of all time. Gibson guitars have a girth and mystic that is distinctly Gibson. Most of their guitars feature mahogany wood throughout the body and they just have tone that Fender cannot match, not better or worse but just a different feel and tone all together.

SOUNDS

The neck feels good and smooth and like an old glove. This is nice feeling guitars nonetheless. The tone is just not where I would like it to be. It is at a great price so there isn't too much to complain about. What I don't like about he new Gibson Les Paul's are they are chambered. This means they are somewhat hollow on the inside. This cuts down on the girth and raunchiness of the tone in my opinion. I have heard them A/B and I prefer the original style of build to the Gibson Les Paul's.


OVERALL OPINION

At new you can find these for right around $899 or so. That is a good intro price for a Gibson Les Paul guitar. These have a good build quality even though they are chambered. They have a feel and tone that is pretty transparent within the Gibson line of guitars. This is a great rockers guitar for sure.
