About This Listing

Here's a very cool LP Special from 1958. Gorgeous original TV finish with slightly opaqued woodgrain. These are classic guitars for good reason.
This example has its share of cosmetic wear, as shown in the pics. No headstock break or neck joint issues that you see with some examples.
Plays and sounds great. The original small frets still have plenty of life. Nothing "vibes" like a 50's Gibson!
This guitar was once oversprayed gold and red (probably Candy Apple Red, which has a gold undercoat and a red transparent overcoat). You can see traces of red paint on the very edges of the pickup routes, and you can see bits of gold and red inside the bridge post holes. The oversprayed paint was painstakingly removed, revealing the original TV finish. Whoever did the work did an amazing job. The original TV finish understandably has normal mild checking, as shown in the pics.
The weight is a perfect 7 pounds, 15 ounces.
Replacement CTS pots are date-coded 1983. Looks like the original (or at least very old) wax capacitors. The P90s sound amazing but are not the originals. They are Gibson P90's from May 1980 - one is stamped with the date and the other is not.  The pickup selector is old - possibly original.
Includes the newer Gibson brown hardshell case shown. The combination is broken, but the rest of the case works fine. It protects the guitar very well.

Thanks for looking!
