OVERVIEW

A marriage of Gibson classics gets a beloved neck.

Marry the Gibson Les Paul to the Gibson ES-335 and what do you get? A perfect blend of two of the most played and recorded electric guitars in history. Ultralight weight, killer in feel, with a big bottom that you know you love, the only question to be asked is, Gibson, what took you so long?

The Gibson ES Les Paul features classic Gibson ES construction including: maple/poplar/maple body supported with quartersawn Adirondack spruce bracing attached to the top with tone-enhancing, old-world hide glue, solid maple center block hand-selected for weight and tone, genuine mahogany neck glued in via close tolerance mortise-and-tenon joinery.

The neck features a 1.7" bone nut for smooth and slick tuning, atop a 22 Medium Jumbo frets firmly anchored into a speed-friendly 12" radius, rosewood fingerboard, perfectly spaced to .001 inside of a 24.75" easy chord scale length. Originally touted by Gibson in 1961 as the world's fastest guitar neck the popular Gibson 1960s Slim Taper contour fast action neck fits like a glove and plays fast and clean for hours without fatigue thanks to the ergonomic shape developed over 120 plus years and the hand-rolled bound fingerboard edges. The in-demand PLEK system setup finishes one of the most accurate and playable guitar necks in Gibson history.

Two Memphis Historic Spec Humbucking pickups wired through perfectly matched potentiometers, unbalanced Orange Drop capacitors, featuring the Memphis Tone Circuit provide for clarity of tone seldom matched by any guitar. Along with a clean sound that would make a statue cry, the ES Les Paul can get down and dirty with the best of them. A Les Paul that can go from clean jazz, to bright country, to filthy rock and roll, will fill the holes in the most complete guitarist's arsenal.

This particular Gibson Memphis Limited run is offered for a short time in the rare Light Burst nitrocellulose lacquer finish featuring the additional Gibson Vintage Original Spec finish treatment. VOS finish applies to the hardware as well as the lacquer, and is designed to replicate an older but well cared for guitar. Although lacquer is time consuming to apply and requires refined expertise to do it right, all Gibson instruments continue to come with hand applied lacquer finishes as the ultra thin lacquer coating is considered by many luthiers to be the best finish available for tone. That it is stunning to the eye doesn't hurt either.

Comes with a form-fit Gibson Hardshell Case and Gibson's dependable Limited Lifetime Warranty.

    Comments about Gibson ES-Les Paul Limited Edition Slim Taper Neck VOS Electric Guitar:

    Perfect for me I like light guitars but I also like Les Paul's with 60s slim neck and this guitar fills the bill. I also like the beautiful aged patina of the finish and the great tone. This is a limited edition so they won't be around forever
