This Gibson Les Paul Special was made by Gibson in the USA. It has been refinished TV yellow, and the color is a bit off, more key lime pie than it should be, but no more so than reissues we have seen. Either way, its an awesome player and it sounds great. The original parts are the pickups, tuners, and pickguard. The bridge, and other plastic has been changed. It has been pro-setup and plays great. It comes with a non original hard case.
