As some of you may be aware, I have been looking for an older Studio for a while and this grabbed my attention on eBay last week and I put in a cash offer and picked it up the same day.
It's a 1986 Les Paul Studio in ebony with a rosewood 'board and a lovely thicker neck profile. The body is a touch thinner than my Standard and has a lovely weight to it. It will be off for a refret for bigger wire so it plays more like my number one. I haven't whipped the pickups out yet - any ideas what they should be? I'll probably put in some Mules as well. Also needs a metal jack plate and i'll put an aluminium tailpiece on it too. It's been well played and it's nicely worn in (which is why i'm not keen on new guitars generally) but needs just a bit of fettling to get to my tastes. Quick and dirty pics:
