The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

❌SOLD❌ Gibson ES Les Paul Light Burst, 2014


Instrument Categories: , , , , ,

Coming from the now shuttered Memphis plant in 2014, the Gibson ES Les Paul combined classic Les Paul aesthetics with the immensely successful thinline ES concept. Along with the plant, this model has, as such, been discontinued by Gibson’s new management. The new ES-235 is perhaps its replacement in this class.

Here we’re looking at a very, clean Gibson ES Les Paul sporting a Light Burst finish. There is very little wear of any type, to the frets, fingerboard, finish or plating.

The ES Les Paul includes Kluson Deluxe type tuners, with a traditional yet locking ABR-1 type tune-o-matic bridge and stop tailpiece. Electronics start with MHS humbuckers, emulating the original Gibson PAF pickups, a pickup selector and individual volume and tone controls. The output jack is on the lower treble side.

The ES Les Paul plays very well, and is one of the lightest quality electrics available. Some of the few lighter are the Fender Telecaster Thinline, the Gibson ES-330 or Epiphone Casino, all very different instruments. If you need the sound of a Les Paul but also need or appreciate lighter weight, look no further. This is a well built, well thought out instrument, with classic lines, excellent playability, and a great sound.

The original brown Gibson branded hard shell case is included.

In their Legacy Archive section (which may disappear at any time), Gibson described the ES Les Paul in this way:
“The perfect marriage of Les Paul and ES-335 yields powerful tones and a lightweight playing feel, courtesy of PAF-style MHS pickups, rounded ‘C’ neck profile, historic details and more.”
