Incredible Hollowbody Tone with Gibson Custom Craftsmanship

You'll love how easy it is to invoke incredibly rich tone from the Gibson Custom L-4 CES hollowbody electric guitar. Gibson's L-4 hollowbody guitars are a favorite with jazz guitarists, although the L-4's deep and sultry tones are enchanting in many different styles. While most jazz guitars are all-maple, this L-4 CES tops a mahogany back and sides with a spruce top, for vibrantly mellow bass notes that still have definition. Also setting this L-4 apart from the normal fare is the Florentine cutaway, which creates a sharp look while allowing you easy access to the upper-fretboard. Factor in the one-piece mahogany neck, a pair of '57 Classic humbuckers, and a premium Plek Pro setup at Gibson's Custom Shop, and you've got an amazingly playable performer in the Gibson Custom L-4 CES hollowbody electric guitar.

Very musical combination of tonewoods

The Gibson Custom L-4 CES hollowbody combines a carved mahogany back and sides with a carved spruce top, complete with a one-piece mahogany neck topped with a rosewood fretboard. The mahogany body and neck provide a rich and mellow tone plus incredible sustain. The spruce top complements these nicely, balancing the tonal response and enhancing note definition. It's a perfect recipe for those elusive, well-rounded jazz tones that have made the L-4 such a legendary instrument.

Sonic versatility

Thanks to dual '57 Classic humbucking pickups, each with their own volume and tone controls, you can coax an impressive range of tones from the Gibson Custom L-4 CES. It's ideal for jazz, but versatile enough for country, rock and blues styles too.

Gibson Custom quality

Gibson's Custom Shop took extra care with every detail of the L-4 CES hollowbody. Every Gibson Custom guitar receives an ultra-precise Plek Pro setup, which optimizes the fretboard and results in incredibly accurate intonation. And little touches like the split-parallelogram inlays and single-ply white binding not only look great, they remain true to the history of the L-4 hollowbody guitar.
