The incomparable Les Paul Special gets back to basics, sporting solid features and subdued aesthetics. It's made with classic Gibson craftsmanship, has awesome Les Paul Special design features, and boasts distinctive P-90 pickups. This guitar is for players who enjoy the vibe of this modest Les Paul model.

Classic Gibson Craftsmanship
The Les Paul Special originally hit the market in 1955, during the golden era of Gibson innovation. Since then it has been a classic workhorse in the Les Paul family. The single cutaway body is shaped from mahogany and sports a small pickguard. The 24.75" scale length neck is also shaped from mahogany, sporting a Vintage '50s profile. The fretboard is rosewood, lined with 22 medium jumbo frets and acrylic dot inlays.

Awesome Les Paul Special Design Features
With all the classic playability of the Les Paul, this LP Special is stocked with features that make it look and sound top-notch. There's a Graph Tech nut to keep the strings in place and moving smoothly. There's also a simple, effective wrapround bridge, working in concert with the Vintage Deluxe tuners to keep this guitar sounding great.

Distinctive P-90 Pickups
P-90's are an awesome Gibson innovation from the early days of the company. A unique style of single-coil, their wider bobbin produces warm tones that are rarely replicated. There's a three-way toggle switch to find your ideal pickup sound and each P-90 has a volume and tone knob, hand-wired with orange drop capacitors.

2019 Les Paul Special TV Yellow


Best Gibson guitar for the money from the new Original Collection. Received the best service of course from sales rep Sam. He setup the LP Special to my liking with a new set of strings. Cool thing is the nitro finish smells just like a chocolate bar!



The perfect guitar


The perfect guitar. Simple and time tested. More enjoyable than my custom shop strat which was quadruple the price!



The best Les Paul out there


These are the bomb!!! Metal or punkrock. And it cleans up very nice. The p90s got some nice chime to them.



I would buy this product again.


Doing alot of Stones tunes with this guitar . Very pleased with the professional service from Sam Ash, quite simply the best.



Here is the rock machine you've been waiting for...


This is probably the greatest guitar I've ever played. The neck is absolutely killer, and the P90's sound amazing. Gibson knocked it out of the park on this one!!!



Expensive. Worth it.


Superb. I've owned 5 Les Pauls over the years and this one is the best. Build quality is excellent - Gibsons with their nitro finishes tend always to have a few flaws, but I can't find any on this one. It's so good it almost doesn't feel like a Gibson. Body is light and the guitar is very resonant and loud unplugged. It sustains beautifully and there are no dead spots or wolf notes anywhere on the neck. The P90s are a little darker than I normally like them, but they sound enormous through my AC30. This instrument was not cheap, but some things in life are worth the money. Delivery was fast and it arrived in perfect shape.



Incredible! WOW WOW WOW


Well here I go again. Over the years I've owned about 6-7 different Gibson LP specials of all sorts. Single and double cuts, p90's p100's humbuckers all have been great guitars. However, none of them compare to this latest 2019 release. Light and resonant, mine is right under 7lbs. Fret work is near perfect with the lowest action on any guitar I have ever owned. The tone is beyond belief, warm but crystal clear tone, articulate and incredibly responsive. P90's benefit from quality wood and construction more than any other pickup. P90s are by design slightly microphonic and as a result wood quality and resonance makes a significant impact. After 10 years on the hunt for that perfect special is over!




Absolutely incredible!


So this is 7th or 8th les paul special that I have had over the years. Gibson finally got it right. I've been looking for a lightweight (mine is right around 7lbs) Special and to my suprise my local Sam Ash had the perfect one. The wood quality on mine is superb! The finish is gorgeous! The playability is beyond any other Gibson I have ever owned (can't afford custom shop) and finally this is the best sounding Gibson I have ever owned. After 7 or 8 specials 3 traditionals 2 classics, I have finally found the perfect LP for me.




Hell yes!


The neck is very chunky! Love the p90s...buy it!
