This is a USED piece. Shows significant wear on the head, neck, and body. See pictures. The Les Paul Studio launched in 1983 as an affordable no-frills take on the classic Les Paul design. Like other Les Pauls, the Studio uses two humbuckers and a combination of a carved Maple top on a Mahogany body (though some early models use alder). Unlike other Les Pauls, the Studio lacks any sort of binding on the fingerboard or body.
