First available in 1987, the Studio Elite embodied the essence of the L.A. studio scene. With contoured and cutaway neck, heel, and body area, plus a deeper cutaway on the treble side, the upper frets are easier to access. The lead/rhythm circuit and mid-boost preamp makes the Studio Elite one of the most versatile guitars around. Choose one of our many finishes for just the right look.
