The Gibson Les Paul Guitar Speaks For Itself

Whether in the hands of an able bluesman, a metal shredder, a snaky chordsman, or a pop strummer, the Les Paul has a sound and image immediately identifiable as pure attitude and power.  Since the company began churning out mandolins in the late 1800's all the way until today, bearing an instrument with the name Gibson emblazoned on the headstock gives the performer a certain sense of gravitas, and the Les Paul Studio is no exception.

Sometimes You've Just Gotta Dress It Down
The specs are exactly what you've come to know, expect, and respect from such a fine instrument as a Gibson Les Paul, without any of the frills or flair some guitarists look for in a stage axe.  If Gibson Les Pauls were clothes, the Custom would be a tuxedo with tails, whereas the Studio would be a velour track suit--comfortable, versatile, and with the right shoes, classy enough for a night on the town.  Ok, let's put it this way: a Les Paul Custom is a British international super-spy, and the Les Paul Studio is an undercover Eastern European sleuth wearing an inconspicuous trenchcoat.

These Specifications Will Self-Destruct in 3, 2, 1...
These LP's feature carved Maple caps on Mahogany bodies, '59 Les Paul Rounded Mahogany necks, 22 frets on a 24 and 3/4-inch scale length, and Pearloid
trapezoid inlays.  Available in 4 striking finishes, the Wine Red, Fireburst, and Ebony LP Studios all feature Rosewood fretboards, while the Alpine White packs a
secret surprise on board.

Normally reserved for instruments double in price, the Alpine White Les Paul Studio features an Ebony fretboard, adding a distinct cutting edge to the tone of an already very able tone machine.  The pickups are capable of dishing copious amounts of tone, thanks to the Alnico magnets in the 490R and 498T pickups found in the neck and bridge positions, respectively, controlled by the standard 3-way toggle switch and array of dual volume and tone controls.  The guitar ships strung up with Gibson Brite Wires, gauged .010 to .046, in a Black Reptile Pattern Hardshell Gibson case, with a Dark Grey Plush interior.

When you buy a Gibson electric guitar, you know you're not only getting an instrument hand-crafted by some of the finest luthiers on the planet, but you're also supporting a heritage of American workers and craftsmen.

Gibson Has You Covered
A musician's worst fear is having his or her gear fail during a critical moment.  Whether that's just as they're about to step out for their first solo with a new band, trying to woo a love interest with a ballad of vulnerable tenderness and yearning, or taking the stage in front of a crowd of thousands of adoring fans, sometimes things go wrong.

It's an unfortunate part of a gigging musician's life, but a part that Gibson have gone out of their way to soften with their Gibson Gold Warranty.  It's simple--your new guitar is guaranteed to be free of any manufacturer defects for as long as you own the guitar, and if something does pop up, they'll repair or completely replace your faulty piece of kit. This covers both the cost of labor and materials. While this warranty can't guarantee that nothing will ever go wrong, it can guarantee that if it goes wrong once, they'll make sure it never happens again.

If you want the classic Gibson Les Paul feel and sound, but find the Epiphone Les Paul Standard a little bit out of your reach, take a look at the Les Paul 100.  Two
humbucker pickups, a Rosewood fretboard with a bolt-on Mahogany neck and great body wood give this model the powerful, sustaining tone character of the best Les
Pauls.  The painted models feature a body made of Alder and the transparent finishes feature Mahogany (because Mahogany looks so incredible with a stain finish).  This guitar is hot enough to let your leads sing and the rhythm pickup has the smooth, fat tone that Les Pauls are known for.  The Les Paul guitar is synonymous with Rock and Roll.  No other guitar gives you the power, the sustain and the sound of a Les Paul.  If it's got Les Paul's signature on the headstock, it's the real thing... Accept no substitutes!  Authorized by Gibson USA!

Rickenbacker 4003 Electric Bass (with Case)
Push/pull treble tone control.


In the short lifetime of electric string instruments, very few basses have earned the accolade necessary to genuinely call themselves "classics." Even less can claim the title of industry standard - but no one can dispute the fact that the Rickenbacker 4000 Series deserves these titles. The piano string-like ring, punch, and sustain brought the bass player out of the shadows and into the spotlight.

Entire new dimensions of bass playing capability are directly attributable to this venerable series. Rickenbacker basses are still handmade in America, using traditional methods refined and honed since Adolph Rickenbacker put his first electric guitar in service at the United States Patent Office almost 70 years ago. Experienced craftsmen lovingly oversee every detail of production. No robots, no computerized machinery - just human hands and eyes, backed by a determination to make, quite simply, the best products possible.

New for 2006
Rickenbacker introduces the Vintage Tone Selector for 4003 Series basses. This additional control is included standard at no additional cost on all 4003 basses beginning in the 2006 model year.

Prior to 1984, Rickenbacker basses utilized a capacitor in the treble pickup circuit to emphasize treble tones coming from that pickup. However, changes in tone preference and a call for higher output led RIC to discontinue the use of this capacitor in favor of a more balanced sound. Nevertheless many users added this capacitor back into the circuit, experimenting with and sometimes preferring the sound of the older configuration, despite the resulting drop in volume.

Rickenbacker has now decided to give players a choice, allowing the best of both worlds. With a simple pull of the treble tone control, the Vintage Tone Selector will allow a player to move between both sounds at the drop of a hat. Pressed in, you'll hear the familiar balanced tone of the 4003, while pulled out to engage the circuit, you'll appreciate the bite and crispness popularized by such artists as Chris Squire.

Combination Tailpiece and Bridge Assembly
Nestled into a massive metal tailpiece, the height adjustable bridge reflects the maximum string energy back as extra punch. Individually saddled strings have generous intonation adjustment range. A variable mute assembly hides out of the way until called upon; each side adjusts separately. Strings are easily threaded through the end of the tailpiece for rapid changes.

Internationally Acclaimed Pickups
Traceable back to Rickenbacker's original 1928 patent, this bass pickup is renowned for unbelievable clarity and wide range response. Both pickups on the 4003 models are single coil, hum protected designs with high power output. Adjustment screws lower and raise units to player's preference.

Ultimate Control
The toggle pickup selector may be used to switch from one output channel to the other, or both. Each 4003 bass has separate treble and bass tone controls and separate pickup volume controls. The control knobs were selected not only for aesthetic reasons, but also for visibility in typical low light situations.

Dual Rod Neck-Through Body
Always the hallmark of a Rickenbacker, the neck runs the full length of the bass; string tension remains entirely on one laminated wood assembly. The result is a lifetime of accuracy of alignment, plus markedly superior sustain and tone. All bass necks have 2 field replaceable truss rods, allowing for each side to be adjusted separately.

A Balanced Neck and Body System
Instantly recognizable, the fluidly sculptural body and head shape serve primarily to establish proper instrument balance. One of the thinnest and fastest necks around plus an ergonomically accurate body contour mean easy playing without fatigue. Full cutaways permit access to the highest frets without strain and a conventional tail shape permits stable storage in a stand between sets.

Bass Tuning Keys
The keywinds are superbly crafted to microscopically fine tolerances. As a result, gear backlash and slippage are virtually eliminated. All components are completely removable for cleaning or maintenance and finished to a superlative smoothness, fully protected from hard use or abuse.

All Round Protection
A deluxe molded hardshell case is included with each Rickenbacker bass. Plush lined and form fitted, these hard wearing cases feature an accessory pocket, heavy-duty hardware, and extra padding.
