For your consideration, Garrett Park Guitars presents this 1957 Gibson Les Paul Special.

From the estate of David Charbonneau of Waterford Connecticut comes this 1957 Gibson Les Paul Special.

This TV Yellow, or limed mahogany Special is just that, Special. In wonderful original condition this Special sounds and plays great.

Originally made for artists who were playing on Television, the limed finish was intended to be less reflective of light and thus a better choice for one those who were playing on TV, hence the name.

This one from 1957 is in very nice shape although It has some very minor dings here and there but overall it's pretty darn clean. 

Two screaming P-90s give this a tone all its own. These guitars excel at several different genres of music, they're super versatile!

David Charbonneau is described by his friends and wife as humble & introverted except when the subject of guitars came up. He was also described as a gracious friend who would let his friends borrow any of his amazing collection built over 40+ years as a union pipe-fitter.
