Les Paul Studio Hot Rod
Since 1983 the Les Paul Studio has won countless fans for its made-in-America quality, its full-bore tone, and it’s no-nonsense looks and pricing. The Les Paul Studio Hot Rod takes all of what’s best about the Studio and adds more: extra thick body, scorchingly powerful humbucking pickups with Fat Tap switching, and customized street-rod looks on a sleek Ebony finish with blue and white pinstriping. A black markerless fingerboard (side dots only) and double-white pickup coils complement the look, and it’s all nailed down for optimum resonance and sustain with time-tested Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, plus locking Grover™ tuners. Pack it all in a Vintage Brown Gibson hardshell case—at an unbelievable price—and you’re ready for the gig.
