Blending the popular ES-Les Paul's clever hybrid build and styling, the new ES-Les Paul studio marries semi-meets-solid construction in an outstandingly versatile guitar. This compact semi blends the look and sound of Gibson's two most influential guitars The Les Paul and the ES-335. The body is constructed in the fashion of the ES with a 3-Ply top, back and rims with a centre-block to keep everything anchored and aid feedback rejection.
The neck has the same redesigned, supremely comfortable 'C' profile as many of the other instruments from the Memphis Custom Shop 2016 lineup. There's trapezoid inlays set into the Rosewood fingerboard providing a visual nod to the Les Paul Standard whilst the rolled fingerboard binding creates a softer playing feel. Gibson's historic truss rod has no tube, a proven known to enhance the guitar's resonance and sustain.
The tried and tested '57 Classic and Super '57 are constructed like the hallowed PAF, with a little extra windings in the bridge position for hotter lead tones. Fitted hardshell case included.
