2014 Gibson Les Paul Special AAA Flame Top Semi-Hollowbody serial number 140020546.

This guitar is in excellent condition. Neck and frets are fine, cosmetically clean. Prior to us buying it the owner had us install a couple of Duncans and wire it standardly. When he sold it to us we reinstalled the original pickups with the original wiring.

This is a limited edition model produced for a big music/big box retailer; hence there is a limited amount of information published.

Here is the quote from the original sales brochure:

“Featuring a AAA flame caramel-burst top on a weight-relieved mahogany body, this semi-hollow Les Paul Special is the stuff of which dreams are made. The ’57 Classic and Super ’57 humbuckers round out the package for a classic Gibson tone that’ll last a lifetime. “

Our evaluation:

The Gibson Les Paul Special AAA Flame Top with F-Hole Electric Guitar has some interesting features. The AAA flame maple top features an f-hole with a body route. The mahogany back has other hollow chambers that help give this guitar a unique semi-hollowbody tone. The mahogany neck sports a granadillo fretboard with dot-position markers. The pickups are ‘57 Classic & Super’ 57. Each pickup has a push pull pot that sounds like a coil tap. But actually it simulates a coil tap sound by engaging some filters that make a humbucker sound like a single coil while still cancelling the hum. Not unlike what Leo Fender did on the G&L F-100 when he started the G&L Company in 1980.

Very nice guitar at a good value.
