OVERVIEW

A stripped down rock-and-roll icon returns.

With tone that’s warm and thick, a unique finish that was developed to work under the harsh lighting of early television soundstage and a serious rock-and-roll pedigree, the ’57 Les Paul Special has left a distinctive imprint on music history. A favorite of many players across multiple genres, the guitar’s throaty growl comes from a pair of P90 “soapbox” single-coil pickups. This Gibson Custom Shop reissue brings back, in the minutest details, the look, tone and feel of the original. Includes deluxe hardshell case and Certificate of Authenticity.
