About This Listing

The Les Paul Studio was introduced in 1983 as a guitar intended for studio work. The features of the guitar are focussed on optimizing sound quality, tone, & playability rather than appearance. Hence, the bounded body & fingerboard are absent, as are the trapezoid inlays, pickguard, headstock inlays, & a set of volume & tone controls. Only the features at contribute to tone have been selected.

The Les Paul Double Cutaway Studio was manufactured between 1997 & 1999. The double cutaway offers access to the higher registers, as well as a 24-fret fingerboard. The only thing keeping this guitar off the "mint" list is a small ding on the lower horn at the neck join (photo #7).

Appointments & characteristics include:
  • offset double cutaway mahogany back
  • thinner body than other Les Pauls
  • back contour for increased comfort
  • carved maple top in Heritage Cherry Burst
  • set-in mahogany neck
  • slim neck profile
  • 24-fret rosewood fingerboard with mother-of-pearl dot inlays
  • wrap-around stop tailpiece
  • 3-per-side tuners
  • chrome hardware
  • 2 covered humbuckers, 490R & 498T
  • 1 volume & tone control each, with black top hat bell knobs
  • 3-position pickup switch (lead, both, rhythm)

Assembled on 16 March 1998 in Nashville Tennessee. Serial number: 9075 8417. The DC Studio weighs in at 3.2Kg / 7lb 1oz.

Includes brown/pink 5-clip Gibson USA hard shell case, with tags & case locking instructions.
