I would argue that Gibson's M-III electronics are hugely misunderstood, under-appreciated and under-valued. This Les Paul Studio has all the appointments of a Standard: sunburst finish, maple cap with nice top carve, bound rosewood board and two humbuckers. But: with a flick of a switch, you activate the three single coils, with all the middle positions that a five-way Strat-like switch offers. The only compromise: master volume / master tone control.
