Les Paul Studio Baritone

This new offering from Gibson is a long-scale, drop-tuned instrument with a 28″ scale length that is suitable for lower tuning.

It comes with a maple top and weight-relieved mahogany body.  The mahogany neck has the ’50s profile with a rosewood fingerboard that has 22 medium-jumbo frets and a 12-inch radius with a 1 11/16″ nut width.

I have yet to try this guitar but my immediate thoughts are around balance and weight for playability and how much use I would get out of it to make it worth forking out over £1000.
