Classic-Style Single Cutaway Guitar
After the release and instant-popularity of the legendary les Paul Junior in 1954, Gibson decided to switch things up a bit and released the Les Paul Special the following year.
This awesome guitar saw Gibson take the Junior design and add in a second P-90 pickup, alongside individual Volume and Tone controls for extra tonal versatility.
Rock Solid Construction
With its solid Mahogany "slab" body, and set-in solid Mahogany neck, the Les Paul Special is renowned for producing a naturally harmonically-rich tone.
On top of this, the guitar features a classic Wraparound Bridge and a set of Vintage Deluxe tuners, which work together to offer increased intonation and tuning stability.
Where the Gibson Les Paul Special differs from the Les Paul Junior is in the inclusion of an extra P-90 pickup and corresponding controls.
P-90 pickups are Single Coil in nature, but due to the wider and shorter bobbins produce a warmer tone, with less edge and brightness. Essentially they're the ideal go-between of a Single Coil and Humbucker.
