You are looking at a Gibson 2016 ES-Les Paul Semi-Hollow Body Electric Guitar Ebony, serial number 12485713. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (6 lbs, 2.9 oz.)

The 2016 incarnation of the Gibson Memphis ES-Les Paul brings the contemporary classic hybrid to all new levels of tone and performance. Boasting a 3-ply maple semi-hollow construction with an ES-Les Paul center block, the 2016 ES-Les Paul now comes fitted with quarter sawn Adirondack spruce top bracing for a beautiful tonal response and that classic semi-hollow resonance. The rounded "C" mahogany neck is capped with a rosewood fingerboard that features a bone nut, comfortably rolled binding for an incredible fretting-hand feel, and Trapezoid inlays that enhance that iconic Les Paul aesthetic. The neck also comes equipped with a tubeless Historic truss rod for superior adjustability and added resonance & sustain.

The 2016 ES-Les Paul comes fitted with a pair of slightly underwound, historically-accurate Memphis Historic Spec (MHS) humbuckers to re-create all of those sought-after PAF tones delivered by the humbucker-equipped Gibsons of the late '50s and early '60s. The traditional 4-knob control layout allows for easy tonal shaping while high-quality Orange Drop capacitors offer outstanding performance and consistent tone. A modern twist on a classic design, the ABR-1 bridge featured on the 2016 ES-Les Paul sports titanium saddles for improved sustain, clarity and presence while the lightweight stopbar tailpiece holds true to old-school Gibson specs. A set of Kluson Single Ring Tulip Button tuning machines give this contemporary semi added vintage appeal. Comes dressed in your choice of Ebony or Faded Lightburst high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finishes. Includes hardshell case and a Certificate of Authenticity from Gibson Memphis.
