I recently bought a 2012 studio in faded brown that has an amazing wood grain pattern of a knot and rings on the maple top. Or at least I think its a studio faded. I just saw some of the new LPJ's and they come in the same color as my studio. My question is this to anyone who would be in the know on this, Other than the obvious features like No pick guard and the black pickup covers, What is the difference between my 2012 studio faded and a LPJ in the same color brown. Also is there any way to tell if mine is actually a studio and not just a LPJ that someone modified into looking like a studio? and What pickups came on the 2012 studio faded browns. I have been told that they went to the "Modern classics" on that year but the older ones have the burst bucker pros in them. I had a "Vintage Mahogany" studio that had BB pros in it but it also had a mahogany top so its kind of hard to compare the tone from those pickups. And anyone who could send me a link to a advertisement with the specifications of 2012 Studio Faded I would be really grateful. As soon as I figure out how to post pics on the site I will show you all the knot pattern in this les Paul, its really something.
