Classic, sleek, and renowned for its gritty rockin' sound, the Gibson Les Paul Special has become a must-have for countless musicians worldwide. Fit with a pair of snarling P-90s and a nice, chunky '50s Vintage neck, this guitar is excellent for players who want a top-notch guitar dripping with old-school mojo.

The Les Paul Special features a lightweight mahogany body that produces a rich, resonant tone with deep lows and punchy mids. Its nitrocellulose lacquer finish allows the wood to breathe, enhancing its sound, and gives it an authentic look that'll only improve with age. And thanks to its '50s Vintage mahogany neck and silky-smooth rosewood fingerboard, this beauty plays exceptionally well.

Gibson equipped this guitar with a pair of P-90 pickups that pump out a stellar array of classic, sizzlin' tones. These pickups have a high output and a biting treble, giving them plenty of edge for lead lines and solos. If you're looking for more aggression, just run the Les Paul Special through a high-gain tube amp and your favorite fuzz effect, and it'll growl, bark, and wail like nothing you've heard before. Dial the volume back, though, and you'll find that it projects a surprisingly sweet and articulate tone. Simply put, this guitar sounds great no matter what you do with it.

Complete with Orange Drop capacitors, Vintage Deluxe tuning machines, and a wraparound bridge, the Les Paul Special is perfect for musicians seeking a premium axe with a classic look, sound, and feel.
