  1. oh the pickup difference is that there is not a cover for the pickups. that silver thing that goes over the pickup can be removed to look like yours.


    Ah, I see. So I got the 490/498 pickups, but still confused on the maple top.

  2. Gibson Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar Features:


    • Carved maple top and mahogany back (Mahogany top on faded finish models)
    • Mahogany neck, '59 Rounded Les Paul
    • Rosewood fingerboard (Ebony on Alpine white)
    • Tune-O-Matic bridge with stopbar
    • Chrome or gold hardware
    • 490R and 498T Alnico 2 magnet humbucker pickups (BurstBucker Pro on faded finish models)
    • 2 volume and 2 tone knobs, 3-way switch

    hope this helps. you know it comes with a gig bag not a hardshell case right?

    Thats exactly what I read on musicians friend, but it only says one thing about the satin, which is it doesn't come with a hard case. Thats what has me confused. The picture of my guitar on musicians friend looks different then the faded and regular finish. No pickgaurd and completely different looking pickups. And the one on here looks exactly like the one on musicians friend, but with a pickgaurd. And I'm confused as to whether mine has the maple top or not. I know the faded is all mahogany and the finished had the maple top. this website says all mahogany on the satin, but the description on musicians friend says only the faded ones were all mahogany. I know i'm gonna be pleased regardless, Id just kinda like to know what its got before it gets here and I'm totally confused.

  3. I just bought a Gibson Studio Les Paul.I have a question. I ordered from muscians friend and all the pictures of the Studio les pauls have the same looking pickups in it, except for the Satin ebony, which I ordered. I know mine has the maple top instead of mahogony like the faded tops, but the pickups in mine aren't the one piece metal looking pick ups, but the double stacked looking pickups. Is that just a difference in the pictures or what? I know the faded finish comes with the burstbuckers and the finished come with the Alnico 490/498, but it never said which the satin ebony comes with, but they definately were different in the picture. Anybody know?
