  1. Hi All, I purchase my first ebony Les Paul Studio from Gibson Dot Com on June 8th. So I’m super excited but I have called a few times and spoke with Gibson customer support to check on it and they can see I made the purchase and it’s paid in full but need to check on shipping status because I never received a tracking number. Anyone experienced same shipping email delays? Hopefully my first experience buying from Gibson will be a good one. I selected free shipping 2-9 days. Don’t know who they use as the shipping company but was told to call back and keep checking.
  2. First off, I am a drummer but love to play guitar and some bass too. But I could really benefit from the opinions of other guitar players or Gibson enthusiasts. I have always wanted to own a Gibson but never had the extra coin to spend. Or so I thought until I saw a used Gibson Les Paul Studio Faded T from 2016 with a price tag of 649 Canadian dollars (roughly 500 American dollars). I couldn't believe how much of a bargain it was especially since it was in almost new condition. I bought it without even playing it, which looking back on it was kinda crazy. I am not disappointed however. It looks and sounds and feels amazing. It has a much bigger neck than my Casino but you get used to it. I did some research and wanted to compare this Les Paul model to other models. I knew the one I had bought was ultimately the least expensive Les Paul you could buy without resorting to an Epiphone. After doing some research I was pleasantly surprised. I found that this guitar had all the guts and essentials that the Les Paul Standard had. The main differences were in finish (Faded T has a satin nitro finish), lack of binding and different nobs. Other things that Gibson will often change to save costs on their less expensive models would be pick-ups and a different neck material (maple necks are cheaper than mahogany necks I am told), but my Studio Faded T has Burstbucker Pros and a mahogany neck, a combination that doesn't really seem to exist in less expensive Les Paul models. A lot of Studio models have a maple neck or different pick-ups than the Standard such as the 490R and 490T or 498T. So my question is did I stumble upon a hidden treasure? A diamond in the rough? Could it just be that the 2016 Studio Faded T though low on the price tag is actually super high in value? I am especially interested in hearing from other owners of this guitar.
  3. As the attached picture shows, when I try to lower my neck pickup, only the side opposite the poles lowers. So really the poles never adjust unless I were to lower the individual poles. Anyone else have this issue? If so, how did you fix it?
  4. 1st off I know it is not an actual Gem series, however I have recently been been told that this guitar is "Rare & Highly Sought After". I purchased this guitar of a great fellow named Phil back in Nov. 2017. My son was looking to learn guitar & I wanted to get him a quality guitar. Of course I chose to buy a Gibson Les Paul. When a Gibson collector asked about a post on one of my old forum blogs (not this forum). He told me it was one of the rarer studios. All I know is it is a '98 Studio Emerald Green, using leftover Paint from the "Gem" Series and allegedly only a very few were produced. My curiosity peaked, so I am seeking any information I can get so why not check here on the GIBSON forum as I will probably get the most accurate authentic information. Thank you in advance for any help in this matter. 😎 See below
  5. Hey Gents! I have a Les Paul Studio that I am trying to identify for a buddy of mine. It seems to be a bit of an odd duck. I had originally believed it to be a Studio premium plus. However, the premiums all (or most) appear to have a quilted maple top. This one doesn’t have a quilt and is sort of a honey burst finish unlike any I’ve seen. It does have a “faux” painted binding around the body like the premium plus models. Check out the photos in the link below The serial number indicates that this guitar was made in ‘06. However, my friend says he bought it used in ‘04. Can you guys enlighten us a bit? Thanks in advance! https://imgur.com/gallery/Emh3mXc
