Les Paul Studio Baritone

Gibson’s new Les Paul Studio Baritone may well be the ideal bit of kit for any aspiring metallers that require some serious low-end.

Resplendent in high gloss Honey Burst, the new Baritone takes the classic Les Paul Studio features and adds a whole new depth of tone ideal for drop-tuned throb.

Gibson's latest offering is lightweight thanks to its weight-relieved mahogany body with maple top.

It has a solid quarter-sawn mahogany neck with '50s profile and a rosewood fingerboard with 24 medium-jumbo frets.

The trouser-flapping shunt comes from Gibson's 496R neck pickup and an overwound 500T bridge pickup, both with ceramic magnets.

Gibson's classic combo of Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece complete the guitar.

At just over a thousand pounds it's a pro guitar for serious rock fans.
