Gibson Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar Review From Premier Guitar
http://www.premierguitar.com/Magazine/Issue/2012/Aug/Gibson_Les_Paul_Studio_Electric_Guitar_Review.aspx

All the details from the web site:

Gibson 2012 Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar

The Gibson 2012 Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar features great, useable additions never before seen on a Les Paul Studio from Gibson USA. The 2012 Les Paul Studio continues to offer the tonal power and unparalleled quality and playability that first made the Les Paul Standard legendary 60 years ago. All that, and the Gibson 2012 Les Paul Studio’s stripped-down look and feel still brings it in at a remarkable price!

The classic tonewood combination of a Mahogany body, solid carved Maple top and Mahogany neck are still there, along with the acclaimed Gibson set-neck construction for optimum resonance and sustain. To top it off, the 2012 Les Paul Studio guitar has a pair of Gibson 490R and 498T humbuckers for the perfect marriage of power and depth, with push/pull coil splitting for versatile single-coil tones.

Gibson 2012 Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar Features
• Mahogany body with Solid Carved Maple top
• Mahogany neck with slim, fast ’60s-style profile
• Coil-tapped 490R and 498T humbucking pickups in the neck and bridge
• Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece
• TonePros vintage style tuners with 16:1 tuning ratio
Body
The 2012 Les Paul Studio’s lack of frills like body and fingerboard binding doesn’t mean it misses the mark where tone and playability are concerned. Like the most revered Les Paul Standards of all time, the Gibson 2012 Les Paul Studio starts with the legendary tonewood combination of a mahogany body with solid carved maple top.

Together, these woods offer outstanding tonal depth and richness from the mahogany, with superb clarity and snap from the maple. The updated modern weight relief in this guitar’s mahogany body enhances resonance while also reducing the guitar’s overall weight considerably.

Neck
The glued-in solid-mahogany neck on the Gibson 2012 Les Paul Studio guitar is cut to the superior ‘quarter-sawn’ grain orientation for excellent strength and optimum resonance transfer between neck and body. The neck is now carved to a slim, fast ’60s-style profile that measures .800 inch deep at the 1st fret and .875 inch at the 12th, and is topped with a rich brown fingerboard made from granadillo.

Hardware
The guitar has a PLEK-cut Corian nut, and, to further maximize vibrational energy, Gibson includes its legendary Tune-o-matic bridge and stud-mounted wraparound tailpiece, with high-quality vintage-style TonePros tuners up at the top.

Pickups
Plug in the 2012 Les Paul Studio through your amp of choice, and its superb blend of tonewoods and hardware rams it all home through Gibson 490R and 498T pickups. Made with an Alnico II magnet and coils wound to the specs of original PAF humbuckers, the 490R in the neck position provides creamy, warm tones with outstanding articulation. Made with an Alnico V magnet and extra turns of wire for added punch and grind, the Gibson 498T in the bridge position excels at wailing leads and thundering crunch tones.

Electronics
To increase the guitar’s sonic versatility exponentially, the Gibson 2012 Les Paul Studio guitar now includes independent coil-split switching. Pop up either pickup’s volume control to access a new frequency tuned coil tap for a fatter single coil tone and better output balance, with hum canceling when both pickups are combined, and low-noise operation when used individually.
