Les Paul Studio Fireburst or 50's Tribute

Biggest difference, is the finish! The glossy takes more time,

and paint, so it's more labor intensive, and costlier.

 

Best thing to do, is play both, and decide then. I'm sure you've

checked out the differences in spec's, on the Gibson web site.

 

I have a '60's tribute, Gold Top, with P-90's, that I absolutely

LOVE! Different pickups, than you're interested in, but otherwise

essentially the same guitar (save neck profile), as the one you're

asking about. It's light, sounds awesome, and plays that way, too.

The "satin" finish is lighter/thin, but I actually like that. However

some prefer the Glossy, full 4 coat version. Either way, you'll get

a great guitar! [thumbup]

Yeah, it's a "50's profile," instead of '60's. Which is why I said ("save the neck profile"), above. [biggrin]

They vary some, guitar to guitar, being hand made, so sometimes, they're quite different, and

other times, not so much. It's one reason (of many), you should try to play both, to see which

one appeals to you more. [thumbup]

Hello! What Charlie said is very true! The neck-shape of my Classic Custom is very different to a friend's 60's Tribute SG's, although both guitar is stated being made with 60s Slim Taper neck. They are all hand-finished, so there are no two guitars with exactly the same necks. Cheers... Bence

Thanks Charlie, I love the beefier neck so I think this will be fine. I went to guitar center and played a few however they did not have my color in stock so I ordered mine online from zounds. I ordered the Fireburst studio as opposed to the tribute. Hope I made a good choice!
