Reverb Estimated Used Price Range

The Les Paul Studio launched in 1983 as an affordable no-frills take on the classic Les Paul design. Like other Les Pauls, the Studio uses two humbuckers and a combination of a carved Maple top on a Mahogany body (though some early models use alder).  Unlike other Les Pauls, the Studio lacks any sort of binding on the fingerboard or body. Starting in 2005, Gibson produced a version of the Les Paul Studio with a more economical faded satin finish.
