2016 ES-Les Paul Studio




Cool, fairly rare hybrid from Gibson that combines Les Paul styling with ES-335 construction. You’ll notice the F-holes which are a giveaway to its semi-hollowbody construction. Inside the maple body is a mahogany center block with spruce braces and mahogany rim liner. Another departure, the fretboard is outfitted with rolled black binding, matching the body’s black binding. The rosewood fretboard is adorned with the usual trapezoid inlays on a rounded “C” mahogany neck and black Corian nut. It’s finished in a high gloss nitro “Ginger Burst” finish. Pickups are ’57 Classic and Super ’57 Classic, rated at 7.9K and 8.7K, respectively. Other features include Kluson tuners with single ring tulip buttons, nickel-plated ABR-1 bridge and stop tailpiece, single-ply black pickguard, bell truss rod cover with engraved F-hole, and black top hat knobs. This guitar has a fantastic low set up and a fat Les Paul tone, with a bit of the openness that semi’s are noted for. With factory potted pickups, it can stand up to higher gain settings on an amp with no problem. Cosmetically, it’s in spectacular condition with no flaws noted. For cool looks, playability and rarity, it’s a nice buy at $1159. Includes certificate of authenticity, warranty, and original brown case.
