The Gibson Memphis ES Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar in Wine Red benefits from the delightful partnership of hollowbody brilliance with solidbody style in a beautifully styled model. The understated aesthetic belies the exceptional tonal offerings afforded by this unique design and the comfortable playability will ensure that you'll effortlessly cruise through sets night after night.

Marriage made in Memphis

Shaped to the iconic single-cutaway body shape of the Les Paul, the ES-Les Paul is built using 3-ply maple and features the ES-LP centre block weight relief design (making the average weight of the body a mere 1.4kg). The chambered design creates hollow pockets that generates impressive energy infused with warmth for stirring tonal depth. The mahogany centre-block prevents unwanted harmonics from overpowering the output tone, whilst retaining enduring sustain.

To maximise stability, Adirondack spruce bracing and Franklin Titebond 50 adhesive are on hand to ensure that everything remains steadfast and true. The elegant F-holes in the top allow the acoustic energy generated within the body to spring forth, making this a delightfully expressive guitar.

Sturdy mahogany neck

Joined to the body via a solid mortise and tenon joint is a single-piece mahogany neck, which is shaped to the historic rounded "C" profile for a substantial yet manageable playing feel. Married to the neck is a glorious dark rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 frets that are adorned with pearloid trapezoid position inlays to guide your way. The rolled binding creates a "played-in" feel that allows your hand to transition between frets seamlessly.

Powerful humbuckers

To translate the rich harmonic energy of the ES-Les Paul, a '57 Classic humbucker is fitted in the neck position along with a Super '57 Classic in the bridge position. Delivering classic PAF-inspired tones, the '57 Classic offers a rich Alnico magnet-powered output that translates to dense bluesy tones. The overwound Super '57 Classic produces a beefier output that is ideal for a more aggressive, edgier character. Independent volume and tone controls for each pickup allow you to sculpt and shape your tone with ease.

Gig-ready hardware

The body is home to an adjustable ABR-1-style bridge with titanium saddles to establish a seamless connection between the strings and body for immaculate intonation and sustain. The headstock is fitted with Kluson single-ring tulip button tuning machines that uphold tuning integrity dutifully throughout the most demanding of performances.

The ES Les Paul Studio in Wine Red maintains its finish beautifully thanks to a protective layer of nitrocellulose lacquer, allowing it to age gracefully. Each model is supplied with a brown Gibson hardshell case to get you out and about in style, whilst a Gibson Memphis certificate of authenticity confirms that it is the real deal.
