I was just reflecting on how grateful I am to have my Les Paul Studio Satin from 2011:

The 2018 Studios are cool with the upgraded binding, but I'm really ambivalent towards the new finish and the ridiculous price. I'm glad my Studio has a baked maple fretboard and killer Burstbucker Pros!

Glad you like it.

I'm the happy caretaker of a 2017 Tribute, which also has the satin finish and no binding, and I like it a lot. I'm equally happy with my 2017 Flying V (actually, even happier), which also has no binding. My last guitar, the Epi, has binding, and it looks nice. But for the extra cash you have to pay for binding on Gibsons... It doesn't look THAT much cooler! If you're on a budget, it's nice of Gibson to offer alternatives.

I wouldn't put binding on my two Gibsons if you threw it at me, actually.

Happy playing!
