Bone Nut & Rolled Neck Binding

The Gibson 2016 ES Les Paul Hollow employs a carefully fitted bone nut to provide an improved tone and sustain over traditional plastic and tusq nuts as it improves the vibration transfer between the string and tuning machines without dampening the tone. Featuring a sleek, dark fingerboard finished with Pearloid trapezoid inlays the 2016 ES Les Paul Hollowbody provides a smooth and quick playability whilst the rolled neck binding is rounded off to allow a comfortable fit to the contours of the hand.

MHS Humbucking Pickups

Loaded with two MHS humbucking pickups, the Gibson ES Les Paul Hollow delivers a vintage style tone with airy and biting response. Featuring unbalanced coils and Alnico II magnets with under wound design the MHS pickups are perfect for a variety of playing styles and offer a detailed and articulate response.

Gibson Memphis Series

Every Gibson Memphis guitar receives an ultra-precise Plek Pro setup, which optimizes the fingerboard and nut for perfect action and intonation. Gibson's world-class luthiers took painstaking care with every detail of the ES Les Paul Hollowbody, including fine touches like CTS pots, ceramic capacitors, nickel hardware, and a scrumptious nitrocellulose lacquer finish. These finishing touches add to the amazing tone and vibe of this incredible guitar, living up to the ES Series' legacy.
