Summary: Not your ordinary ES-Les Paul! The ES-Les Paul 2016 is the perfect marriage of Les Paul and ES-335. It yields powerful tones and a lightweight playing feel, courtesy of PAF-style MHS pickups, a rounded 'C' neck profile, historic detailing and gives you amazing Low-End tone. The Les Paul is one of the most famous guitar profiles in rock history. Used in some form by a whole host of manufacturers, the Gibson Les Paul was one of the first commonly available electric guitars on the market. Across the genre’s they have been vital to the development of music through the years. Taking the lessons learned from the development of the ES-335, the ES-Les Paul has a center-block hollow body, but this limited-edition version has no F holes (unlike all the other ES Les Pauls). You get great resonance and a deep, characterful tone. The low-profile frets on this guitar give a smooth playability and very accurate intonation, perfect for lead playing.
