Description

Summary: Slightly higher-end than the Les Paul Jr but still considered a student-level guitar, the Les Paul Special was introduced in 1955 with a pair of P-90 pickups. Like other Les Paul models, the Les Paul Special underwent a total transformation at the end of the '50s switching form a single to double cutaway body shape. The model has been reissued several times since and remains in production. This particular guitar is from 1960 and features a fully bound neck.

Body: Solid body mahogany dual cutaway electric guitar

Neck: Fully bound mahogany neck with dot inlays, 22 frets, rosewood fingerboard. The frets are in good shape & have a ton of life left in them.

Pickups/Hardware: 2 original P-90 pickups, 2 volume knobs & 2 tone knobs with a 3-way switch. This guitar has an old school Bigsby that has been added. Chrome hardware, original Kluson Deluxe tuning keys.

Cosmetics: This instrument is 68 years old so it does show normal vintage wear with some cool checking & various nicks & dings.

Playability: We set this instrument up with 10’s and it plays great with low action, no buzzing or dead spots.

Modifications: An old school Bigsby tremolo has been added to this instrument.

Weight: 7 lbs, 12 oz.

Case: Non original hardshell case
