Description

Details

The Gibson Memphis 2015 ES-Les Paul Electric Guitar Black Beauty is a stunning vision in ebony and gold. With the finest appointments sealing the remarkable aesthetic of this gorgeous model, you can rest assured that it plays like a dream. Boasting a trio of Memphis Historic Spec (MHS) pickups, the range of tones at your disposal is nothing short of staggering. Built by Gibson's team in Memphis, Tennessee, this is more a work of art than a musical instrument, and deserves to be adored and treated as such.

Gibson Memphis ES-Les Paul Body

The ES-Les Paul design is a harmonious marriage of the rich, versatile warmth of a semi-hollowbody, combined with the sleek, single-cutaway playability of a Les Paul. Running along the back of the body is a centre-block, which prevents the guitar's output from becoming saturated by low-end power, and that feedback is resisted to maintain smoothness at high volume levels, without sacrificing sustain. Stylish f-holes adorn the top to project a gentle acoustic presence.

The tonewood used in the body is a delicately balanced 3-ply maple/poplar/maple partnership, which resonates sweetly thanks to its robust construction that is reinforced using Franklin Titebond 50 adhesive. The body profile and tonewoods work wonderfully together to yield highly articulate tones that are full of sparkle and energy. The breath-taking black beauty finish is preserved by vintage original spec 90 sheen lacquer to preserve its stunning design for as long as possible.

Single-Piece Mahogany Neck

The single-piece mahogany neck provides a solid and reassuring playing feel, thanks to Gibson's customary mortise and tenon joint that is reinforced with Franklin Titebond 50. Shaped to the rounded "C" neck profile, the neck feels elegant yet robust, and the slim heel on the back of the guitar makes the ES-LP a delight to play.

Paired with the neck is a hand-selected single-piece richlite fingerboard, which is home to 22-frets that are decorated with full block mother-of-pearl inlays. The fingerboard radius is shaped to Gibson's established 12 inches, which they've found creates the perfect platform for executing smooth string bends. The white binding ensures smooth transitions between each fret, along your hands to glide along with ease.

Memphis Historic Spec Pickups

The 2015 ES-Les Paul is equipped with a trio of Memphis Historic Spec (MHS) humbuckers that are fitted in the neck, middle and bridge positions. The MHS pickups are "scatter wound" to recreate the sublime character of Gibson's PAF humbuckers, translating the smooth warmth, and subtle tonal nuances of the ES-LP body profile and tonewoods.

Each pickup is fitted with an individual volume and tone control, allowing you to create silky clean tones and raucous, high-energy tones for performing stadium-filling rock with. Through deft manipulation of the controls, you can find your perfect tone with ease. Orange Drop capacitors are on hand to ensure the smoothest response, giving you complete mastery over your output signal.

Stage-Ready Hardware

The headstock is home to the resilient Milk Bottle Grover Rotomatic tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with precision thanks to their highly impressive 18:1 ratio synchronised spur gear system. The body is home to the Tone Pro AVR-2 gold-plated, die-cast alloy bridge, and matching gold-plated lightweight stop bar tailpiece. This partnership works dutifully to create a seamless connection between the strings and body, guaranteeing stable intonation and string tension throughout.

The Gibson 2015 Memphis ES-Les Paul Electric Guitar Black Beauty is a heavenly guitar at a down-to-earth price. Such a beautiful model deserves sufficient protection, which comes in the form of a Gibson Memphis tan hardshell case, and each model is also supplied with a Gibson Memphis certificate of authenticity.
