Click To Enlarge

Here is a rare & incredibly well preserved example from the tail-end of Gibson's glory years. The double-cut Les Paul Special was only made between 1959-1961, with only a handfull sporting the coveted TV-Yellow finish. This particular guitar falls into a short window of production in early 1960, after the "Les Paul" logo was omitted from the headstock, but before the space was widened between the end of the neck & the neck-pickup. The "SG" moniker was initially intended for this model, until the following year when the body was completely redisigned to the current SG. The double-cut Les Paul would not return until 1974. 

Chances are if you are reading this, you are familiar with the iconic tone produced by these early P-90's. This example is no exception, with a screaming crucnch in the bridge position, robust clarity in the neck position, and excellent blending capabilties in between. The Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard provides a smooth attack, while the notes ring out powerfully through the 52 year old Mahogany body. Keep reading for more detaials about this amazing vintage instrument... Here is your chance to own a truly special vintage Gibson; a guitar & an opportunity that do not present themselves very often!


* This guitar is in extremely clean vintage condition; There are normal signs of aging, but only moderate playwear. It is exactly the level of Mojo that Tom Murphy gets paid big bucks to emulate!! 

* NO BREAKS!! Solid neck-joint... The ONLY non-original parts are the plasic tip for the toggle-switch & the 5th & 21st dot inlays on the fretboard.

* The original TV Yellow nitro finish is fully intact with light surface checking finely spread across the guitar. There are a handful of minor dings and scratches, but no major chips or buckle-rash. The edges of the headstock also display typical wear. 


* The electronics are 100% original with un-disturbed solder joints, and function perfectly with minimal noise. Smoking hot P-90's + bumble-bee caps!

* The neck is a medium taper profile; still a little chunky but not as round. The action is straight, true & fast with minimal buzzing & no deadspots.

* The frets appear to be original; as you go down the neck towards the 1st fret, the "nibs" are gradually worn off the fret-ends. 


* The original "alligator" case is in decent shape but will be shipped separately; The guitar will preferably be shipped inside the brand new Gator (brand) hardshell case for better protection.
