2012 Gibson Les Paul Special w/ Dimarzio DLX Plus soap bar humbuckers

Summary: Although it's referred to as the Les Paul Junior Special, the Special P-90 is far more similar to early Specials than the Junior. The Les Paul Special presents a modern take on the iconic Les Paul Junior featuringtwo P-90 pickups and these 2 pickups are upgraded Dimarzio DLX Plus Soap Bar pickups! This particular Gibson has a wonderful dark sunburst finish & it was recently set up with a new set of 10’s.

Body: Solid mahogany body with a single cutaway & a satin finish.

Neck: Fully bound mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard, dot inlays, 22 frets, 1 11/16” nut width, 24.5” scale length, Kluson Deluxe tuning keys

Pickups/Hardware: Pickups have been upgraded to Dimarzio DLX Plus soap bar humbuckers. It has a clean and open character with scooped mids and a leaner bass response so low notes sound more defined. Both come with 4-conductor cable for coil-splitting and parallel/phase options. In this case the 2 volume knobs are wired with coil tapping push/pull pots and the neck pickup tone knob is wired with a push/pull pot for an out of phase option. It also has a three way toggle switch and nickel hardware. Original Gibson Deluxe tuning keys with Tulip buttons.

Cosmetics: The satin finish on this guitar does show some wear but overall this guitar is in great playing shape. It has a spot where the finish has been buffed a bit from picking, a small chip under the strings in between the pickups, some chips on the neck, edge of the body and headstock edge as well as some various scuffs and scratches consistent with a well-played instrument. The frets show a bit of wear but don’t hinder the playability.

Playability: This guitar plays great and has been set up with low action and strung up with a new set of 10’s.

Modifications: Pickups have been swapped to Dimarzio DLX Plus Humbuckers and it has strap lock style strap buttons.
Weight: 8 lbs, 6 oz.

Case: This Gibson doesn’t include a case but we will package it well & ship it fully insured.
