ES-Les Paul Left Handed
A Single-cut semi for the southpaw
$3,299
The perfect marriage of Les Paul and ES-335, the ES-Les Paul yields powerful tones and a lightweight playing feel, courtesy of figured maple top, maple back and rims, cream bound rosewood board with pearloid trapezoids on a mahogany rounded 'C' neck profile with rolled binding for a played-in feel, PAF-style MHS pickups, and an f-hole engraved truss rod cover. All these details which culminate into an amazing instrument are now being offered on a Left-Handed ES-Les Paul! Never before has the tone and feel of the Les Paul combined with the precision and beauty of the hollowbody ES-Series guitars been offered in a Left-Handed version. All 100 guitars in this Limited Run are available now to the Left-Handed artists.
