Trapezoid inlays in genuine mother-of-pearl provide a classy, upscale look.

The Les Paul Studio HP comes loaded up a powerful 490R humbucker in the neck position and a hotter 498T humbucker in the bridge, delivering that classic PAF tone with some extra modern power. The addition of a push/pull Volume knobs and a 5-position DIP switch will expand your tonal range and maximize versatility. The electronics also feature upgraded components including an upgraded High Performance toggle switch for positive, sturdy feel with quiet operation and a gold-plated multi-contact jack for optimum connection and performance.
