Gibson Les Paul Studio T-Series Worn Brown 2017
Gibson LP Studio T, worn brown, made in USA 2017. Mmmmmmm... hot chocolate. This model was a shortlived version of the LP Studio with a thin satin nitro finish on the back and sides and a thin gloss finish on the top and neck. Combined with an earthy cocoa brown stain, the look is understated and tasty. It's light and sprightly in the hands with an easy slim 60s neck; there's a lot to like. The tone has the classic LP growl and grit; the thin finish let's the wood sing truly and adds a certain warmth and flavour. There's something about this that encourages big, enthusiastic rhythm playing; it really eats that up greedily. If you're more impressed by a thick, saucy tone than fancy flame tops, pearl inlays and double binding, this might just the LP for you.
