Overview

A truly classic guitar, the Les Paul Special sprang from the Les Paul Junior design in 1955, taking the simply mahogany slab body design and adding a neck pickup and expanded controls, as well as the extra aesthetic touch of neck binding. The unique TV Yellow finish was created to look white under the unforgiving lights of early television, as a true white finish would overload the primitive camera lenses. The unique greenish-yellow hue has made fans of its own over the years, and graces this great-sounding guitar that's simply fun to play. The P-90 single-coil pickups are a truly archetypal tone for all varieties of American roots music, and match perfectly with the look and feel of the guitar.
