Introduced as a “no-frills” model for players who needed the sound and feel of a Les Paul without any of the cosmetic appointments, the “Studio” model has caught on as an affordable, American Les Paul at a player-friendly price. This 1995 model has a new pickguard and pickup rings, which combined with the all black finish make for an subtle but elegant rock n’ roll machine! EXC w/OHSC $1,295.
