For your consideration, Garrett Park Guitars presents this 1958 Gibson Les Paul Special.

 If you've been waiting for a clean example of this classic, here is your guitar.

The Gibson Les Paul Special was a slightly higher-end than the Les Paul Jr but still considered a student-level guitar, the Les Paul Special were equipped with a pair of P-90 pickups. Two screaming P-90s give this a tone all its own. These guitars excel at several different genres of music, they're super versatile!

The TV models were actually limed mahogany bodies and necks with a Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard.

This model is in excellent condition. It is 100% original but has a newer hardshell case.

Originally made for artists who were playing on Television, the limed finish was intended to be less reflective of light and thus a better choice for one those who were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