Ben, did you buy this one?  I have photos and the backstory if you're interested.  

Man, no, I wish. But now I'm curious about the backstory, too!

An earthen maple studio calls to me.  That being said, I’m pretty happy with my studio custom.  It’s definitely my favorite of any guitar I’ve ever owned.    The next few guitars will have to be stylistically different.  But if I was gonna get lots of flavors of the same thing, it would be studio/Archtop models.  

there is a pizza day blue one out there with 2 p90s and a full size humbucker and an ebony board that I lust heavily after.

Good one, right? Whale Blue, black hardware, ebony board, and those pickups. What's not to like?

So I sold it.  :wacko:

It's still in the family, though.

Did it come stock like that or was it an aftermarket mod...?

like, didn’t start life as a 2 p90 guitar with an ebony board and the rest added later...

Does this one count?

One of two I bought from Moose. I sold this one and kept the second. I kept it until he asked for it back. That was the best Studio I have owned.

Every time I play this guitar, someone asks to buy it...

IIRC, I bought this here on the HFC For Sale Board.  The original hardware would have been chrome, but everything  had been changed to black.  I replaced it with gold, down to the pickup selector toggle ring and output jack, P-90 pole pieces and mounting screws.  The pickups are Fralin noiseless models. 

The fretwork on this guitar was absolutely perfect.  I suspect it had been Plek'd or dressed by a very good tech.  I was able to get the action uncomfortably low with no buzz.

If the neck profile would have been just a bit thicker, I would have kept it.

As I recall Atquinn has or had a blue Studio Custom that I would love to have.  I'll try to find a pic.

The one they built for Slash always called to me. I think Fung had it at one time. That top and color were AMAZING!!

Back to this thread, I had a TT and couldn't get on with the neck carve. It was wonderful other than that.

Sweet! Ever consider black (speed?) knobs?

EDIT: Rereading post, I see that it’s been sold.

Now you got me curious! Any pics of the Slash Studio? I'd love to know what they did to try to lure Les Paul, Jr away from his signature guitar! Was it a one piece neck with the wrong angle and different scales from 0-12 and 12-22 to keep him comfortable? 🤣
