Gibson USA Les Paul Custom Studio, Denim Blue
A very cool USA-made Gibson from their vintage/modern hybrid 'S' Series featuring some tonewoods not typical on the rest of their line! The Custom Studio wouldn't be the first to feature a solid Swamp Ash body, the Swamp Ash Studio and the Voodoo series are a couple of recent models that come to mind that also used this excellent tonewood. Very resonant and with a beautiful grain it makes a great guitar. Here it has a carved top and 9-hole weight relief to make it comfortable and resonant. The glued-in neck join has a dressed away heel allowing much improved access to the upper frets.
The neck is a single piece of Maple with Gibson's Slim Taper profile, the fingerboard one-piece Rosewood. The guitar is loaded with completely new, modern, Made-in-USA, Double Slugs Alnico 5 Rhythm DS-A5 and Lead DS-A5+ humbuckers to deliver amazing quality, tone and playability and are tied to simplified controls, a single volume & tone control. TheLes paul Custom Studio features a nitrocellulose finish with a new Nitro stain on both body and neck for a gorgeous vintage look. There's a chrome ABR style bridge, Stop Bar and mini-button tuners with black top hat knobs. A 'S' Series padded gigbag is included.
