The new Les Paul Special TV Yellow 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. Originally 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 additional controls for the rhythm pickup and the 3-way toggle switch.

Finish Available: TV Yellow & Vintage Cherry

Just added to my collection. What a joy to play. You need a guitar to inspire you to play, this is it. Don’t buy the cheap Chinese Epiphone version. This is the way to go... P90’s won’t disappoint

Picked up a 2014 "limited Japanese run" demo for a good price; considerably less than what they are now available for (US$1600). I would argue that $2000 for this guitar is NOT good value but that's not L&Ms fault. Lovely guitar and tone. Easy to play and looks great. The only drawback is the stock Gibson wraparound bridge. Just couldn't dial in the intonation; a common problem. Solved by buying a compensated wraparound bridge (Mojo axe). Perfect ever since. Not sure why Gibson hasn't caught on.

I was excited to see this new line of Gibson’s and the Special caught my eye right away. I’m glad they finally put the wraparound tailpiece back on it, it makes this guitar in my opinion. Pretty bare bones guitar but that’s what it’s supposed to be. Big fat neck, great sounding P90s, beautiful wood and finish.. one of the best guitars I’ve played in awhile. Bought it immediate.. as soon as I grabbed the neck there was no turning back. Thanks Oshawa
