Some guitarists adore the ES hollowbody models by Gibson while there are others who just love the classic sound and appearance of a Les Paul. The 2016 ES Les Paul in Pelham Blue brings you the best of both worlds in one phenomenal electric guitar. This striking model is in fact hand-built in Memphis, Tennessee by the experts at the Gibson factory on Beale Street. The years of experience and guitar-building knowledge enables the Gibson workers to create a magical guitar to suit a wide variety of people.


Usually a Les Paul has a solidbody construction, but not the ES Les Paul. Like the well-revered Gibson ES models, this is a Les Paul with a difference as it integrates a semi-hollowbody construction. Gibson have been meticulous in their choice for the body, employing 3-ply maple / poplar / maple to deliver a mix of tones that are often heard in both an ES hollowbody model and a Les Paul solidbody.

To further strengthen the body and enrichen the sound, Gibson have incorporated quartersawn Adirondack spruce top bracing. The guitar also has a centre block which helps prevent any unwanted feedback or noise. The most notable feature is that the guitar feels incredibly lightweight, reducing any fatigue if performing live on stage.


A single piece of mahogany is used to make the neck and is shaped to the comfortable, rounded "C" profile. Topping the neck is a dark rosewood fingerboard with 22 frets decorated with pearloid trap. The neck has rolled binding and the low fret height enables a smoother playing experience. The stability and strength of the neck is enhanced by the historic tubeless truss rod.


Giving the ES Les Paul the ability to generate that authentic, classic PAF tone is a pair of underwound Memphis Historic Spec (MHS) humbucker pickups. At the neck position, the pickup is powered by an Alnico III magnet to give you that hot, broad output, while the bridge pickup is powered by an Alnico II magnet for a sizzling overtone. This pickup pairing is ideal for this stunning semi-hollowbody Les Paul, giving the guitar plenty of edge.

Controls include Lead and Rhythm Volume and Controls accompanied by a 3-way pickup toggle switch.


An adjustable ABR-1 bridge with titanium saddles is fitted to the lower bout of the body. The bridge works wonderfully in improving the guitar's tone, while the bone nut also improves sustain and intonation.

The ES Les Paul headstock is fitted with Kluson Single Ring Tulip Button tuners, upholding tuning integrity with accuracy.

The ES Les Paul in Pelham Blue maintains its finish beautifully thanks to the nitrocellulose lacquer coating, so it will always look the part. Gibson include a hardshell case with the ES Les Paul for added protection wherever you take it.
