About This Listing

The beauty of the Gibson Les Paul Special lies in its simplicity. A slab of ringing mahogany, loaded with the power and clarity of dual P-90 single-coil pickups, that's just what you'll find in this Gibson Custom Les Paul Special. But the addition of a maple top and some clever aesthetic appointments means this LP is in a league of its own. The maple top is understated to stay true to the stripped-down nature of the guitar model. But it adds plenty of top-end snap and sustain to your tone. If you want a Les Paul Special with a little more kick, check out this Gibson Custom Les Paul Special Maple Top.
Unique tonewood pairing

A no-frills slab of warm-sounding mahogany has been the platform for the iconic Les Paul Special since its original introduction. But Gibson Custom has added a new twist to this LP. You'll find an understated top of maple crowning the familiar body. While it adds a unique and attractive look to the instrument, the maple also injects your tone with added snap, clarity, and sustain. If you love the feel and look of a flat-topped Gibson Les Paul Special, but want a bit more cut, grab a Gibson Custom Les Paul Special Maple Top

This Les Paul Special Maple Top feels fast and precise, thanks in large part to Plek processing. Typically reserved for top-dollar custom guitars, this process levels the frets with pinpoint precision, providing you with the most playable fretboard you're likely to own. Each note rings loud and clear, and the fret edges feel smooth as silk.
P-90 pickups deliver the original sound of the Les Paul

Warm, creamy, shiny, and full of life, the P-90s in this Gibson Custom Les Paul Special Maple Top capture the very essence of the classic pre-PAF P-90. Roll back the tone and keep the volume in check. You've got access to the liquid jazz lines Les Paul himself liked to play. Or open them up full-throttle and tap into the slightly rude and gritty tone they have to offer. Simple as they are, these classic pickups give this Les Paul Special the wide range of classic tone you crave.
