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.

Rounded C-shaped neck delivers 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. Its rounded C-shaped neck's binding is rolled to fit more comfortably in your hand, while low-profile frets enhance playability and intonation.
