Nashville, TN (June 3, 2011) -- The Les Paul Studio Baritone is a 28" scale length guitar designed for lower tunings used in today's modern rock, thrash, and metal. It has a solid, carved Grade-A maple top and weight-relieved Grade-A mahogany body with a genuine nitrocellulose finish in high-gloss Honey Burst.
The guitar's glued-in neck is crafted from solid quarter-sawn Grade-A mahogany and carved to a rounded '50s profile. It has a rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets and a 12-inch radius. Other period correct details include a 17-degree back-angled headstock for optimum string pressure in the PLEK-cut slots of its Corian nut, and a 1 11/16" width. For pickups, it has Gibson's 496R in the neck position and Gibson's 500T in the bridge.
