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. For the 2013 edition, Gibson began offering the Studio with its Min-Etune tuning technology as an option. The electronics also now include coil-tapping.
