1956 GibsonLes Paul Special – TV Yellow

We love a 1956 Gibson Les Paul Special in TV Yellow, especially when it has a vibe like this one! This finish has taken on a hint of amber, which couples so well with its fine weather checking and light edgewear. After some issues with the bridge posts in the previous design, from 1956 on this model features full-length bushings for an even more solid connection than before! This one sounds great unplugged, and even better amped up! As with many others of the era, the original tuner buttons have been replaced due to shrinkage and wear.
