Very musical combination of tonewoods

The Gibson Custom L-5 CES hollowbody combines beautiful maple back and sides with a carved spruce top, complete with a maple/walnut neck topped with an ebony fretboard. 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-5 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-5 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-5 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 block inlays and white binding not only look great, they remain true to the history of the L-5 hollowbody guitar.
