A Semi-hollowbody Les Paul!

Who doesn't love the idea of a semi-hollow Les Paul? The first time you experience the Gibson Memphis ES-Les Paul Slim-Taper electric guitar's majestic, airy tone, accented by a subtle hint of crispness, you'll be positively captivated. Twin MHS humbuckers enhance the vintage quality of this irresistibly unique Les Paul. A slim-taper neck with rolled binding and low-profile frets make this an exceptionally smooth, fast-playing instrument. We've seen a lot of guitars here at Sweetwater, and the Gibson Memphis ES-Les Paul Slim-taper is a rare treat!

Gibson Memphis ES-Les Paul Slim-taper Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Legendary tone from Memphis Historic Spec humbuckers
  • Fast playing slim-taper neck
  • Gibson Memphis's commitment to quality
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 playing slim-taper neck

Whether you're playing rhythm or lead roles, or even both, you'll feel right at home with this Gibson Memphis ES-Les Paul. The slim-taper neck contour on this particular model allows you a great playing feel for when you are looking for something more modern feeling than Gibson's thicker '50s style neck. The slim-taper neck also sports binding that is rolled to fit more comfortably in your hand, while low-profile frets enhance playability and intonation.

Gibson Memphis's commitment to quality
