Description

Details

The Gibson Memphis 2015 ES-Les Paul P-90 Electric Guitar with Gold Top finish, combines original vintage-style and modern day design with exceptional results. If you're seeking the powerful timbre of an ES semi-hollowbody model, yet crave the comfortability afforded by the instantly recognisable Les Paul, then this is the model for you. 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 brings together the exceptional warmth of a semi-hollowbody, combined with the sleek, single-cutaway playability of a Les Paul. To ensure that rampant energy is tempered, and to prevent it from becoming overwhelmed by its own power, a centre-block runs along the back of the body. This cleverly executed design ensures that feedback is resisted to maintain consistency of tone - even at high volume levels -, without sacrificing sustain. At low volume levels, the f-holes in the top allow the acoustic presence of the guitar to gently yield its timbre.

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 classic gold top is protected by a smooth hi-gloss 90 sheen lacquer, which is finished to a vintage original spec.

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. Newly appointed rolled neck binding allows the fretting hand to reach around comfortably.

Paired with the neck is a hand-selected single-piece rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22-frets that are decorated with full trapezoid pearloid 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 cream binding ensures smooth transitions between each fret, along your hands to glide along with ease.

Memphis Historic Spec Pickups

The ES-Les Paul Gold Top is equipped with a pair of Soapbar P-90 single-coil pickups. These P-90s are powered using Alnico III bar magnets, which are scatter-wound using enamel (43) ABS wire to create the authentic tones of vintage single-coils.

Each pickup has 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 angled to Gibson’s' customary 17-degree angle to uphold tuning integrity, sustain and uniform playability. The instantly recognisable mother-of-pearl crown headstock inlay and Gibson logo reside between the steadfast Kluson single-ring tulip button 15:1 gear ratio tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with precision thanks to their highly impressive synchronised spur gear system.

The body is equipped with a durable team that works tirelessly to ensure a seamless connection between the strings and body, in the form of the superb Tone Pro AVR-2 and lightweight aluminium stopbar tailpiece. Thanks to the resilient responsiveness of this partnership, you can rock out to your heart's content.

The Gibson Memphis 2015 ES-Les Paul Electric Guitar Gold Top recreates the true vintage original spec of classic models, whilst delivering the ground-breaking ES and Les Paul combination. Each model is supplied with a tan hardshell case, as well as a certificate of authenticity.
