I love the color choices that Gibson is putting out. I have played a couple guitars with the baked maple they felt slick and hard more like ebony then rosewood or even untreated maple. Test the guitar out. That is the only way to know.

I've never had a problem with a Gibson based off of fretboard material. Addto this that Studios have been the most consistent Les Pauls I've played, I'd say jump in.

Yeah the Pelham Blue is awesome. Glad Gibson decided to change it up a bit. I love my 2006 Studio.

So your trying to say that you bought one?

Yep without wanting to show off about it.

Awe Yeah. That's like what I'm talking about

I don't mind what ever the fretboard is made of!!!!!!!

It's just there has been some people are a bit sensitive about that of stuff like that.

Imagine that like a fret board made out of different materials would make a difference..:rotflmao. Jk

I prefer maple boards anyways, but I'm a strat guy. I really like the blue with the baked maple, though. Looks classic.

I all serious, who says that a Rosewood Board sounds best anyways?
Just becuase thats what Gibson has always used, doesnt mean it is the best sounding woood ever for a fingerboard.
Had they used baked maple all along, the suddenly switched to Rosewood, people would still be complaining

HNGD!

Gibson 2012 Usa Les Paul Studio
Latest Model New


"Mint Condition"

"Never Played


You are looking at the 2012 Gibson Usa Les Paul Studio guitar finished in glossy Pelham Blue with Crome Hardware in Mint, Unplayed 100% perfect condition with Zero scratches or Dents or Dings

The Gibson Les Paul Studio just got an update. Crucial elements of the Les Paul Studio's design include the carved Maple top & Mahogany body, glued-in Mahogany neck with the back angled headstock, granadillo fingerboard, Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece. All those design points have been making the Les Paul's the desirable tone monters available since the late 50's.

For electronics, a set of Gibson 498T, and a 440R Alnico humbucking split pickups with Coil tapping (to) squeeze every bit of tone from the Intrument.
The neck on this guitar is incredible and so easy to play incorporating a 60's Neck Profile.

Original Hard Shell Cast, Owners's manual and original paperwork.


Electronics

Pickup 498T Split Coil
490R Split Coil

3 way Toggle with Coil Tapping/2 Tone Controls

Tuners - Grover Vintage Style

Truss Rod - Traditional Adjustable

Case - Gibson Hard Case, White felted.

Pics to come.

It looks like Granadillo is where Gibson is moving in replacement of Rosewood at the moment. At least on their middle tier instruments. Obeche seems to be the wood of choice for the lower end as well as some baked maple BUT on a whole the baked maple is on the way out. I was never fond of using maple on Les Pauls. Early review of the Granadillo are extremely positive.

Hmm. Yeah, I just got one with baked maple. Dont mind it much at all, but it does seem a bit dry. I wonder if they will retain value because of that in the future... It certainly isnt as cool sounding as those other woods!

Maybe I'm late to the party, but: Is the coil-tapping a pretty new feature on Studios, or maybe is it unique to this particular model we're talking about? I think that's great. Nice guitar, OP.

Interesting that you mention that. The Private I purchase off, this will be my second off him.

The first was a '60 Tribute with Humbuckers, of I haven't heard any meantion of Gibson making them at all.

They may well be a request order where he has the ability to pick up some odities.

I have two tributes, both inspected by the same person at Gibson upon release.
But the cards say they are both 60 tributes. One with The P90's and the other with Humbuckers.

Indeed interesting.

They are from his private collection.

And thanks to all for the best wishes.

Coil tapping? I have an early 90 LPS. It had these PU's originally. Somone put a hot DiMarzio in the neck and a Neck Pearly gate in the bridge. SOunded nice and better than the 490 type Gibby PU's. THen I got what the guitar deserves, PAF's, WOW what an improvement in tone. Frailin Pure PAF in y case. At this point, you basically have a no frill LP with every aspect of its tone qualities and noteriety in tone.
