One of the Very Last Of the LesPaul/SG Specials.
One of the very last Les Paul Special's with a 'slab' Honduras mahogany body. This amazing guitar weighs 8.40 lbs., and has a one-piece mahogany neck with a typical early sixties thin profile. Brazilian rosewood fretboard with pearl dot position markers. Two P-90 pickups with outputs of 6.33k and 8.40k. Five-layer (black/white/black/white/black) plastic with six screws. Four controls (two volume, two tone) plus three-way pickup selector switch, all on lower treble bout. Black plastic bell-shaped "Bell" knobs with metal tops. Combination "wrap-over" bar bridge/stud tailpiece. The cherry-red finish is totally unfaded and apart from a one inch 'ding' on the treble bottom edge and a few insignificant surface marks this is an exceptionally fine (9.00) example of one of the very last of of the very best of the slab-bodied Les Paul Specials. Housed in the original Gibson 'aligator' soft-shell case. The double-cut LP Special came and went in the same year. The change from the earlier single-cut style was in early 1959, while late in 1959 Gibson removed the Les Paul logo, and changed its name to SG Special. (01029)
