This Gibson Les Paul Special in Vintage Cherry is brand new and comes with its original hardshell case and full manufacturer's warranty. This electric guitar weighs 7 lbs 15 oz.
A pair of Gibson P-90 pickups are equipped in the Les Paul Special and they are truly magical! With enough bark and bite in the bridge and round warmth from the neck, you'll find the perfect, acoustic-like tone in the middle position. Gibson created the P-90 pickups so they know a thing or two about making them right!
The neck, constructed from Mahogany, is carved to Gibson's 50s VIntage Profile, a fuller feeling neck than the 60s era profiles or the SlimTaper. A bound rosewood fingerboard carries a 12" radius, 22 medium-jumbo frets, and 1.694" nut width.
The Les Paul Special returns to the classic design that made it relevant, played, and loved shaping sound across generations and genres of music. It pays tribute to Gibson's Golden Era of Innovation and brings authenticity back to life.
Initially introduced in 1955, the Les Paul Special has been embraced by musicians for over 60 years. It is based on the Les Paul Junior with a slab mahogany body, fat 50s-style mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard, wraparound bridge, an additional rhythm P-90 pickup, binding on the neck, and other controls for the rhythm pickup and the 3-way toggle switch.
