When the ES-LP Line up was first introduced, I was very curious about how it would compare to a regular Les Paul. I can tell you that 'feel' wise, an ES-LP just isn't the same. It feels a little bit more cheaply built, but does have a nice acoustic resonance to it. However, does the semi-hollow chambers and F-Holes in the Les Paul actually change the tone of the instrument? In person, you might think you hear a difference, but once recorded and mixed... let's find out!

This is also a video that compares Gibson Burstbucker 1 + 2 pickups to the Gibson MHS Spec pickups.

The Guitars Used are a 2014 Gibson ES Les Paul with Flame Top in Sunburst finish and a 2009 Gibson 1960 R0 Reissue Les Paul in a black finish.

In the end, I was surprised how little of a difference there actually was. These guitars are roughly $1,000 apart on the used market. I feel the ES LP held it's own and shined a little bit better on the cleans, but fell a little short on the dirty channel.

Overall, I would say it is worth having an ES LP laying around!
