You demanded and Gibson listened – traditional Gibson Memphis hollowbody jazz tones and modern Les Paul playability meet in the 2016 ES-275. This fully hollow beauty makes it debut decked out in ES-345 appointments, nickel hardware, and aged cellulose split parallelogram inlays, accented with an elegantly understated tailpiece. The ES-275 holds two MHS humbuckers that churn you out that true vintage Gibson tone to perfectly match its stunning looks.
