GIBSON USA Les Paul Custom ES Memphis Studio "Black Cherry + Rosewood" (2018).


Who doesn't love the idea of a semi-hollow Les Paul? The first time you experience the Gibson Memphis ES-Les Paul semi-hollow-body 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. Rolled neck binding and low-profile frets make this an exceptionally smooth, fast-playing instrument.This guitar has tone and feel that match its looks. Nice rounded neck profile with good Low action. Whether you're playing rhythm or lead roles, or even both, you'll feel right at home with this guitar. The neck binding is rolled to fit more comfortably in your hand, while low-profile frets enhance playability and intonation.The pickups sound nice and rich.

Before I update you with additional details I need to let you know this used Les Paul, with a 2015 serial number, has barely been played – A nitro gloss finish can easily mark, so very hard to keep them ‘as new’ and spotless, yet this used LP is about as clean as they come – No nicks or grazes, in fact barely a pick mark on the scratchplate, so look hard to find any signs of previous use. Clean frets, as you’d expect. She has spent a short time on my bench for a new set of 10’s.

All considered, the ES Les Paul is a terrific guitar. Lighter than either a standard Les Paul or a typical ES-335, this instrument provides a slew of iconic Gibson sounds in a familiar form that will appeal to blues players, fusion jazzers, and hard rockers.
