Gibson Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar Satin Ebony Chrome Hardware

Gibson Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar Satin Ebony Chrome HardwareToday’s featured guitar is the Gibson Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar Satin Ebony Chrome Hardware. Below is the complete description of the guitar.

The arrival of the Gibson Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar in 1983 offered guitarists all the essential elements of a Les Paul Standard, including a carved top and humbucking pickups. Its simple yet elegant design quickly helped it become the most popular model in the Les Paul Series. Cutting-yet-rich tonethe hallmark of the Les Paulpours out of the 490R and 498T Alnico II magnet humbucker pickups (BurstBucker Pro on faded models), which are mounted on a carved maple top with a mahogany back. The Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar includes a Gibson hardshell case (Faded and satin finish models come with a gig bag) and a limited lifetime warranty.

Body and Finish
A solid, carved maple top and chambered mahogany body give the Les Paul Studio the same tonewood combination that has been helping Les Paul Standards rock for nearly 60 years. And each of its four available nitrocellulose finishes makes for a stunning looking guitar, even while its no-frills approach eliminates body binding and pickguard.

Mahogany is a medium-dense wood with excellent resonance and superior sustain, and it offers a rich, round, warm tone, but with plenty of high-end sheen and good mid-range presence. Add a solid maple top, and the guitar’s tone is enhanced with added clarity, sustain and definition. The body’s chambering also enhances its mellow acoustic resonance, and adds further air to the midrange content.

Pickups
Gibson’s 498T and 490R pickups (“T” for treble, and “R” for rhythm) have the traditional characteristics of the original “Patent Applied For” pickups of the late 1950s, with a few upgrades. These pickups take advantage of wax potting, which does away with any air space inside the pickup, therefore lessening the chances of microphonic feedback. The result is a humbucker with the tonal characteristics of an original PAF, with a slight increase in upper mid-range response. The Gibson 498T bridge pickup is the 490R’s ideal complement.

Taking the 490R one step further, the 498T is wound a little hotter and also swaps the Alnico II magnet for an Alnico V, giving it more punch and greater emphasis on midrange and highs. The 490R/498T is one of the most versatile humbucking pickup sets available. In the neck position, the former yields juicy, warm vocal tones with outstanding clarity, while the latter in the bridge position excels at everything from bright jangle through a clean amp to wailing overdrive with near-infinite sustain through a high-gain amp. Selected together, the pair gives you everything from funky to greasy, depending upon amp and effects settings.

Schecter Guitar Research Blackjack ATX Avenger Left-Handed Electric Guitar Aged Black Satin

Schecter Guitar Research Blackjack ATX Avenger Left-Handed Electric Guitar Aged Black SatinToday’s featured guitar is the Schecter Guitar Research Blackjack ATX Avenger Left-Handed Electric Guitar Aged Black Satin. Below is the complete description of the guitar.

The Blackjack ATX Avenger Left-Handed electric guitar sets itself apart from the crowd with an eye-catching, swooping double-cutaway while the potent tonewood combination of mahogany body, 3-piece mahogany neck, and ebony fingerboard provide a resonance platform for explosive Seymour Duncan Active Blackouts humbuckers. Schecter locking tuners and the TonePros Tune-o-matic-style bridge with thru-body design keep your intonation tight and true.

3-piece mahogany neck
Made with 3 pieces of mahogany for extra stability, 3-piece necks can withstand the test of time. Where standard necks may show aging defects from temperature and moisture changes throughout the years, the 3-piece neck will stay nice and straight for a lifetime of playability.

Ebony fingerboard
Ebony has a snappy, crisp attack with the density of maple, but with more brittle grains, oilier pores, and a stronger fundamental tone than maple. It has a tremendous amount of percussive overtones in the pick attack, that mute out shortly thereafter to foster great, long, sustain.

Seymour Duncan Active Blackouts AHB-1 pickups
9-volt active humbuckers for aggressive playing styles. Recommended for old school metal, garage, punk, thrash, drop tunings, and other heavy rock styles. Capturing the tone that players want in an active design using balanced inputs. The result is 12dB to 14dB less noise, plus more lows, more highs, and more output.

Schecter locking tuners
Schecter locking tuners feature a locking screw pin to lock the string into place for greater tuning stability. Details include a 19:1 gear ratio allowing for precise fine tuning adjustments, removable knobs, threaded peghead bushing, and a 10mm diameter peghole.

Schecter Guitar Research Special Edition Riot 8 8-String Electric Guitar Satin BlackToday’s featured guitar is the Schecter Guitar Research Special Edition Riot 8 8-String Electric Guitar Satin Black. Below is the complete description of the guitar.

Just like its Riot bass brothers, the Schecter Special Edition Riot 8 8-String is an ultracomfortable, ultraplayable electric with a 26-1/2″ scale designed for down tuning. The 3-piece mahogany neck has graphite rods for extra strength and sustain while the mahogany body has a satin black finish. This 8-string features deep cutaways which allow free access to the upper 24X jumbo frets on the rosewood fretboard. At the heart of the Special Edition Riot 8 are the active EMG-808 pickups.
Tuners –
Grover
ROTOMATICS® WITH 18:1 GEAR RATIO (102-18 SERIES) The original Rotomatic® with an improved higher ratio gearing. The 18:1 ratio provides for finer tuning and greater stability. The finer gears provide smoother tuning and a higher degree of backlash elimination

Finger Board –
Rosewood
The most common fretboard, Rosewood is naturally oily, and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact. The sound is richer in fundamental than Maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores.

Pickups –
EMG Active 808
The 707 has been leading the pack of 7-string guitar pickups since its debut in 2001, and is now available for the 8-String! Before this model was introduced, existing 8-string pickups sounded muddy and dull on the low F# string, especially when trying to hit artificial and natural harmonics, but the 808 eliminates all those problems. Featuring Alnico V loaded wide aperture coils we were able to beef up that Low F# tone and at the same time provide a more responsive super tight overall sound.

Bridge
Hipshot Custom-8
Hipshot Custom-8 bridge was custom designed by Schecter with a smaller F# & B saddles and offset string thru location on F#/B/E for optimum Intonation. STAINLESS STEEL saddles. Experience brighter highs, more resonant lows.

You can pick up the Schecter Guitar Research Special Edition Riot 8 8-String Electric Guitar Satin Black at Musician’s Friend for $899.00.

The Les Paul Studio ’60s Tribute is built on a solid tradition. Ever since its introduction in 1983, the Les Paul Studio model has been enormously popular with players seeking the power and versatility of the original Les Paul Standard in a ready-for-action package, with a price to match. The instruments’ reduced ornamentationlacking body or fingerboard binding, and using plainer topshas helped to put them in the hands of many more players, while their adherence to the Les Paul’s hardware, pickup, and construction traditions retained all the thick, meaty tone and unsurpassed playability for which the Standard has been known for nearly 60 years.

The Les Paul Studio ’60s Tribute is handcrafted by Gibson artisans in Nashville, Tennessee starting with a time-tested selection of tonewoods: a Les Paul mahogany body with a maple top that is graced with a grain texured satin finish. A mahogany neck with a ’60s profile has a 22-fret baked maple fingerboard while a pair of P-90 provide the snappy biting tone. TonePros Kluson-style tuners and the Nashvillel Tune-O-Matic bridge keep your tuning and intonation right where it should be.

Baked Maple:

Many boutique manufacturers are now using this because it improves the wood with no chemical treatment, its environmentally friendly and is great for making better sounding and playing guitars!
