Here's my Studio...     Flight959

LP 50`s Tribute Humbucker Rosewood fretboard:      

OK, here we go again. Most people have already seen this before, but here's my 2004 Studio Plus. I love it without an ounce of Standard envy :-     Notice the SG in the reflection?

She is a 2008 Alpine white with gold hardware and a ebony board. She was born on October 8th is seems, If my Gibson decoder ring is working right.

She must be one of the weight relieved models, as it weighs in at 7 pound, 12 oz.

Great neck, play effortlessly.

I’ve always thought it was weird how Gibson sticks gold hardware on Studios since Studios are supposed to be basic models. They always act like gold hardware is a feature on Customs.

Beautiful! I love the older studios, I just picked up a 1990 Wine Red studio with an ebony fretboard and it blows away the 2016 50's tribute I just had. Love the white and gold look

Beautiful, I have got exactly the same guitar, they are great guitars, easy to play, they stay in tune. Here's mine next to my Marshall Amp head and cabinet.

Thank you!

Yep, yours looks just like mine. It is a great playing guitar. I love the pickups in them too.

Nice rig you've got there. [thumbup]

Hello everyone! Here's a couple of my'04 Ebony beast! I've played several Gibson LP's and own an Epi LP Standard, but this one spoke to me! She has the most amazing tone and is the only guitar I have every played that felt & sounded good when playing the last few frets on the fingerboard. With the Bigsby in place (mounted with a VibraMate) she weighs 10.2 lbs, so is definitely not "weight relieved"! I love the look of the Bigsby on the ebony studio!

Picked up a slightly beat up lp studio. Got a decent deal on it because it came without pickups and had had a diy paint job on the top which shows off the wood texture. It's not terrible. I put in some duncan antiquities and a bigbsy. I don't like gold hardware but it's all so tarnished I don't mind it and it doesn't look out of place next to the worn nickel pickup covers. I don't like the all-black look so I changed the pickguard and might change the knobs. I paid £350, so about what you'd pay for an Epiphone LP standard. Maybe I could have got it for cheaper.

 

Anyway, here's how it came:

And here's how it looks now:

Well, I posted a thread on here a few months ago about a Studio that I have that I couldn't sell for $725. I was told that because it had 'Seymour Duncans" and not original pickups, that it wasn't worth jack.

 

Naturally, I thought this advice was moronic. To prove my point, I kept the guitar and added MORE non-Gibson hardware. I added Tone-Pros locking bridge and tailpiece, Faber locking posts, Sperzel locking tuners, Graphtech saddles and miscelanous other hardware. I just got it finished yesterday, and last night was the first time I was able to crank it up. The before and afters are below:

And now, lady's and gentlemen; I give you The Bandit:

Now THAT's a hot rod. Think she'll fetch $725 now?

 

WOW that is an amazing Studio! I absolutely love how it looks, especially how the gold paint was so tastefully done. msp_thumbup.gif

Here's my Studio...

These are all beautiful guitars (and I have the same Studio!) I was just wondering, what is the Les Paul on the far right, in the red finish? I'm digging those two (only two!) tone controls. It looks like a Standard from an earlier model year...

 

If you could let me know I'd really appreciate it!

 

Thanks msp_biggrin.gif

No pics or anything but I spent a few hours playing my 07 wine red Studio today and it still just astounds me how much guitar I got for the money.

It's not the fanciest one out there (obviously) but out of a store full of Les Pauls that's the one that said Buy Me!

Huge "bang for your buck" guitars IMO

 

Drives me crazy when people say "It's just a studio...." like it's a negative thing......great guitars.
