Massive Tonal Range Meets Killer Playing Comfort!

Whether you're getting ready to take the stage or record your next record, this Gibson 2014 Les Paul Studio Pro will give you the extended range of tone you need to get the job done in style. At Sweetwater, we've seen countless guitars, and the Gibson Les Paul Studio Pro is by far one of the most flexible instruments you'll find anywhere near its price. That has a lot to do with its pair of pickups, a more traditional '57 Classic at the neck and a modern BurstBucker Pro at the bridge, each of which includes its own coil tap. The Les Paul Studio Pro's chambered mahogany body is easy on your back, and you'll enjoy the balance of comfort and speed you'll get from its '60s SlimTaper neck.

Gibson 2014 Les Paul Studio Pro Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Classic PAF sound meet modern tonal range and versatility
  • Your back will love this Les Paul's modern weight relief body
  • SlimTaper neck and compound-radius fretboard deliver exceptional playability

Classic PAF sound meet modern tonal range and versatility
If you're a fan of classic Les Paul tone but want a little more range out of your rhythm tone, then Sweetwater has your axe: the 2014 Les Paul Studio Pro. That's because Gibson decided to outfit this guitar with both a traditional PAF-style '57 Classic humbucker at the neck and a modern BurstBucker Pro at the bridge. The '57 Classic gives you nothing but spot-on PAF tone, whereas the BurstBucker Pro provides the extended lows and highs you crave. And for extra tonal versatility, you'll even find individual coil taps built into each pickup's tone control. How cool is that?

Your back will love this Les Paul's modern weight relief body
Here's a fact: the same characteristics that make mahogany an excellent tonewood also make it substantially heavier than choices like ash or alder. Over the course of an evening, that extra weight can become extremely tiresome on your back and shoulder. The modern weight relief chambering Gibson chose for the Les Paul Studio Pro get rid of the vast majority of that added weight, without disturbing its fundamental tonal character. If anything, you'll notice a slight increase in resonance, which complements the Les Paul Studio Pro's natural sustain and complex harmonics beautifully.

SlimTaper neck and compound-radius fretboard deliver exceptional playability
The Les Paul Studio Pro sports a comfortable, fast-action neck with a '60s SlimTaper profile. As your fingers moved down this neck, the precisely controlled width-to-thickness ratio of the Les Paul Studio's SlimTaper neck provides you with a consistent, fast, and comfortable feel. It's no wonder many life-long guitar players consider the SlimTaper Gibson's finest neck. On top of that, the Les Paul Studio Pro sports a compound-radius fretboard, which flattens out as you go up the neck. The result is that it's super-easy to fret chords closer to first position, yet you'll have more than enough space to pull off mad runs and solos up the neck.
