Gibson Memphis ES-Les Paul Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Legendary tone from Memphis Historic Spec humbuckers
  • Fast, smooth feel
  • Built to vintage-correct specs
Legendary tone from Memphis Historic Spec humbuckers

Tonal excellence is yours when you plug this Gibson Memphis ES-Les Paul into your favorite tube amplifier. Loaded with a pair of Memphis Historic Spec (MHS) alnico humbuckers, which are based on '50s-era pickups and designed to enhance the sound of semi-hollowbody guitars, you'll be able to dial in chiming country tones as easily as savagely distorted rock tones. The Alnico III neck pickup gives you classic hollowbody-style tones for everything from smooth jazz to dirty blues. Flip to the Alnico II bridge pickup, and you'll command sounds covering everything from bright and clean to raw and mean.

Fast, smooth feel

Whether you're playing rhythm or lead roles, or even both, you'll feel right at home with the Gibson Memphis ES-Les Paul. The neck binding is rolled to fit more comfortably in your hand, while low-profile frets enhance playability and intonation.

Built to vintage-correct specs

Gibson Memphis wanted to re-create the experience of playing a classic Gibson, and built the ES-Les Paul to exacting vintage specs. From the precise Plek treatment that optimizes the fretboard feel, to the carefully selected capacitors and other electronics, the Gibson Memphis ES-Les Paul pays homage to the originals.
