Hi All... I'm starting to look around for a new guitar to add to my collection & have a fairly basic question, what's the difference between a Gibson's Studio and Standard models? I know there are some cosmetic differences such as the body and neck binding and know that some of the cheaper studios come with 300k pots and 490 pickups where the standards usually have 500k pots and burstbucker pro pickups. I also know that the electronics in different studio models vary too, 300k pots in a mahogony studio while a studio deluxe has 500k pots. I'm sure theres more variation in electronics when it comes to Standards, but is there much else that may be different between the studios and the standards? Is there really a difference between the two that justifies the extra 500 to 1200 dollar price tags?
