The Les Paul Studio Faded with Maple Top fits the bill in spades. This model includes all the classic ingredients that have made the Les Paul Standard legendary since humbuckers first hit the Goldtop in 1957, along with a familiar played–in look and feel, at a price that any hard–working guitarist can sink their teeth into. Right from its introduction in 1983, the Les Paul Studio model has been a firm favorite with guitarists looking for genuine Les Paul tone and performance in a down–to–business package that is light on frills, heavy on swagger, and easy on the pocket. Several Studio models offer this in an all–mahogany body, but now the Les Paul Studio Faded with Maple Top adds this dense, hard wood top to the package for enhanced clarity and outstanding sustain, just like the original Les Paul Standards. Not one element of construction or component quality is sacrificed to bring you this high–performance electric guitar, and the Gibson USA Les Paul Studio Faded with Maple Top takes this thinking one stage further, in a guitar that offers the pre–aged look and feel that so many guitarists prefer.
