great guitar that fits the 1500 eur importing range
Azad Onur Kekilli 24.09.2021
I would really love to buy an LP modern but I cannot import it without a huge tax so i brought this. only difference is the pickups and the phase shift switch which i never used... the guitar itself is great, comes in a premium case, well protected with booble wraps inside the cardbox. no shipping damage is observed.

but the guitar have 2 0.5 x 0.1 cm cracks in the fredboard corners so its a bummer. i don't thing its because of shipping as the damage is not something you can get with an impact when there are 3 card boxes and one case outside...

So, overall quality is top notch, not engraved gibson logo can reduce value over long periods of time as this is an effordable guitar and these don't get price bumps like the standard or upper models but i brought it for keeping so i don't care...

BTW, the string action and neck tension was ok out of the box, the action was a little low for my standards but it was well withing the gibson maintaince specs...

hope this helps you pick the right guitar for yourself.


Three's a charm..!
Zigguitarius 03.05.2021
This is my 3'rd Gibson LP:

The first was a Special with a really fat, almost V- or U-shaped neck, that I couldn't stand. The pup's were probably 500's with very high output; too much for my taste, more suitable for a flying-V..? Bad research, I have only myself to blame, and then sell it.

Second attempt:
This is a 2018 Traditional, as standard as they come.
Compared to my first LP, as I was hell bent on finding "my" LP, this was more to my liking: Slimmer neck profile and classic sounding pup's (BB 1 & 2's). I still own this gorgeous, HCS-coloured jewel...

I should be happy now, with this showpiece guitar in my rack..? Well yes, -and no, I still prefer Strat & Tele playability, and the Trad is kinda heavy in weight, "modest" sounding and chunky in the neck, so there have to be a Gibson out there that is even more suited to my taste..?

ENTER Studio SB:
When I read about this quite affordable version, with slim taper neck, body weight relief, 498/490-pups and the really cool SB-colour, I knew the time had come...

This guitar had to be mine! It "checked all my boxes", it was almost as it was spec'ed by myself, and it didn't disappoint:
It looks fantastic, sounds fantastic and plays like a dream! I have finally found "my" Gibson LP! I'm no longer a pure Fender guy.

Thank you for reading...


It didn't have any faults!
Tomm form Eastern Europe 28.03.2021
First of all. As you probably can see - the sound and features are: 5 stars. I was pretty sure, it will play like a dream. And it did. But there was few worries.

I'm playing mostly rock music. I was worrying that if I buy a studio model, it will look cheap. Maybe I should buy at least Classic. And then I realized, I'm not going to give any gigs anyways and playing at home all the time. And I can chose whatever I want. So it was perfect.. the Smokehouse Burst was my favorite and it will be a "studio" instrument as it was intended. So zero problems in here.

The other concern was the built quality. Before I ordered it from Thomann, I watched 3 or 4 unboxing videos of this guitar. And they all had some minor faults. Nothing about the sound but some cosmetics. I was a bit afraid, but hey, you have to gamble sometimes. And mine came 100% PERFECT. It has very nice finish and all the frets are perfect. Also, what was unexpected: the action was okay, and I have no plan to change any of the settings there. Again very satisfied!
