This is the latest incarnation of the cult classic - the stripped back, no-nonsense Gibson Les Paul Special, finished in the iconic TV Yellow finish.
The Les Paul Special has always had a special place in the hearts of many Gibson fans. With its 60+ years of history and simple, workmanlike design itís a guitar that delivers instant mojo!
The slab mahogany body is married to a 50s style, rounded mahogany neck and topped with a 12" radius rosewood fingerboard set with 22 medium jumbo frets and simple dot inlays. It has a traditional 24.75 scale, 1.695" (43.05mm) nut width and vintage deluxe tuner with white buttons.
A close relative of the Les Paul Junior, the Les Paul Special comes loaded with not one but two P90 pickups. Wired through the traditional 3-way pickup selector, 4 knob configuration (2 x volume and 2 x tone), and orange drop capacitors you have access to a great selection of tones, able to cover a wide selection of genres.
The Les Paul Special also features a wraparound bridge, Graph Tech nut and comes complete with a Gibson hard shell case.
