The body is large, giving it a great tone, yet it is very comfortable. And the stylish pointed cutaway adds a nice visual touch. When it was released, it quickly became the most popular jazz guitar in the world.

This reissue electric guitar features a transparent finish on a laminated maple body. The bindings on the top back and fingerboard, along with the trapeze tailpiece and parallelogram inlays provide a touch of style and class that is unrivaled. Dual ’57 Classic humbucking pickups crank out all the silky smooth jazz tone you could dream of. The Gibson ES-175 is well worth the hefty price tag that goes along with it.

Gibson Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar Review http://guitar-reviewer.com/gibson-les-paul-studio-electric-guitar-review http://guitar-reviewer.com/gibson-les-paul-studio-electric-guitar-review#comments Sat, 28 Aug 2010 13:46:13 +0000 admin http://guitar-reviewer.com/?p=5 Introduced almost 25 years ago, the Gibson Les Paul Studio gives you the traditional ‘Les Paul’ performance without the luxury extras. This guitar is mainly geared toward studio musicians and is among the most saught after guitars in the industry. And for a good reason. The tone quality is second to none.

Its playability, the way the sustain just easily rolls off without too much work, and the looks and build quality is undeniably Gibson.This guitar features a carved maple top, solid mahogany back and genuine Gibson humbucker pickups (490R and 498T). Gibson even uses a nitrocellulose finish that will encourage the natural vibration of the instrument for a purer tone. In addition, a nitro finish is very porous and actually gets thinner over time.Anything this axe may be lacking in extras, is made up for in performance. There is a reason so many people call the Les Paul Studio their number one guitar.
