2022 Gibson Les Paul Special

2022 Gibson Les Paul Special


“The Les Paul Special returns to the classic design that made it relevant, played, and loved–shaping sound across generations and genres of music. It pays tribute to Gibson's Golden Era of Innovation and brings authenticity back to life. Originally introduced in 1955, the Les Paul Special has been embraced by musicians for over 60 years. It is based on the Les Paul Junior with a slab mahogany body, fat 50s-style mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard, wraparound bridge, an additional rhythm P-90 pickup, binding on the neck, a 3-way toggle switch, and additional controls for the rhythm pickup. Available in the always classic TV Yellow and Vintage Cherry.” – From the Gibson Website

This stripped back and powered up Les Paul Special from Gibson checks just about every box one would need when looking for a solid electric guitar. It’s upgraded ThroBak P90 pickups give it a pleasing sonic profile coupled with the muscle of something like a humbucker. The added Schaller Signum bridge also allows for more accurate intonation than a standard wrap-around bridge. These two upgrades make this guitar quite attractive to someone looking for a swiss army knife instrument while maintaining a good value.

The feel of this guitar is one of the more notable structural features. Sporting a 50s style neck profile, one can grip the neck and fret chords with ease without needing to contort their hand too much. It fills up the palm nicely and balances out the guitar’s weight. As to be expected, the rest of the guitar is fairly stripped back in terms of structure and aesthetics. The knobs and pickup switch are very easy to operate and exist in the same location as other Les Pauls – making switching from a standard Les Paul to this special a breeze. As icing on the cake, this model sports a wonderful TV Yellow finish to look as great as it feels on stage.

The original owner of this guitar kept it in pristine condition. It exhibits only minor finish wear and swirling. As such, we rate as EXCELLENT+ condition.
