1987 Les Paul Studio Standard

Recommended Posts

Guys, just picked up this 1987 Studio Standard model Les Paul. It is in amazing condition for an almost 25 year old guitar. I believe they made these for a few years, 83-87. These guitars had the bound body and fretboard like a Standard, but had dot fretboard inlays instead of the trapazoid type. Also, the body was slightly thinner than a Standard, giving it a nice weight without being chambered. Alot of them had Tim Shaw pickups also. I haven't taken them out yet to check. Also has the original paperwork and bullet-proof chainsaw type case. The only real flaw is one of the knobs seems to have internally shattered. I am probably going to change to gold speed knobs anyway. I think the color is "Ferrari Red". this must have sat in the case for most of it's life - not any more!IMG_2568.jpgIMG_2569.jpgIMG_2572.jpgIMG_2574.jpgIMG_2575.jpg
