Available in Ebony, Heritage Cherry Sunburst, Vintage Sunburst, and Walnut colour finishes.
Zebra Coil Humbuckers
The Les Paul Studio E1's classic Les Paul power comes from two Zebra Coil Ceramic Humbuckers. Owners of vintage Les Paul's often remove their pickup covers for a better bass response and magnetic pull, revealing the black & white (zebra) bobbins underneath. Ceramic pickups have a higher output than vintage Alnico magnet pickups and are designed to provide a tight low-end response with both a smooth mid-range and a slightly more pronounced top end tone. Ceramic magnets have been a favourite of metal and hard rock guitarists for decades. The Les Paul Studio LT has a 650R in the rhythm position and a 700T in the lead position. Controls include volume and tone for each pickup and an all-metal 3-way pickup selector.
