The new, limited-run Gibson ES-Les Paul rolls together two classic Gibson designs into one powerful package. A glorious Lemon Burst finish harks back to the original 50s Les Paul stains, perfect for the old school rockers that want a modern day classic in their arsenal.
Solidbody sustain combined with Semi-acoustic style and grace.
Gibson have never been one to shy away from pushing boundaries on their guitar designs, and the ES-LP is the pinnacle of their master craftsmanship. As soon as you pick up the ES Les Paul you'll notice how light it is, without the need for additional weight relief. A Rounded C neck profile sits full in the hand without compromising on playability, reminiscent of a 50's Les Paul 'chunky' neck. A 3-ply Maple/Poplar/Maple used for the top, back and sides draws inspiration from their ES-335 and 339 models. You get a bit of a brighter tone and more attack thanks to the size of the body but the hollow build still gives you a warm and full low end. The figure is spectacular, with rich hues brought out by the Lemon Burst finish.
Dubbed Memphis Historic Spec or MHS, the humbucking pickups featured on the ES-LP are based on the 50's versions that came on ES series guitars at the time. With a response designed to work with the semi hollow body style these pickups have a classic sound that sounds equally great for clean, crunch and overdriven tones.
Les Paul features and ES construction in a best-of-both-worlds tone monster, with additional appointments including a rolled neck binding, historic truss rod and mother of pearl inlays.
