What we say:
Gibson’s new 2019 range of instruments is shaping up to be a classic year for electric guitars and basses. Doing away with the more outlandish experiments of recent years, Gibson have delivered a collection that gives guitar players everything they want!
The range is populated by iconic designs, built with all of the features and hardware choices that make sense on heritage-style instruments, in finishes that are well-regarded player favourites. It’s time to get excited about Gibson more than ever!
Of all the great guitars in Gibson’s Original Collection, this one has been a real talking point! The allure of the TV Yellow Les Paul Special is undiminished after some 60+ years, bringing unadulterated tone and some stripped-back swagger to the Gibson catalogue.
This guitar, along with the single pickup Junior, have been the choice of both no-nonsense Garage Rockers and obsessed tone connoisseurs for decades. Mahogany and P90s are just one of those winning combinations! If one pickup simply isn’t enough for you, then the Les Paul Special is the guitar for you!
So, in a brief roundup, we have a slab Mahogany body with a glued in Mahogany neck. The neck has a chunky 50s profile neck which is entirely appropriate for this type of guitar.
The extra P90 does really open up the guitar to a host of additional tones, making it much more than a vintage crunch machine! You may be surprised at just how versatile this setup can be. Clean tones retain clarity and warmth, whilst overdrives have a life of their own! This is one great sounding guitar, and will suit all situations where great tone is a virtue.
All guitarists should at least experience the joy of playing this: it’ll breathe some fresh air into your playing for sure! We welcome the return of the Gibson Les Paul Special.
