Gibson Custom Shop 1956 Les Paul Special Single Cut VOS - Bright TV Yellow


We're sorry. This item is no longer in stock.


Thanks to Cream City Music's close relationship with Gibson Custom Shop, we were able to procure this 1956 Les Paul Special Reissue - formerly only available in Japan. This 1956 Les Paul Special Single Cut has all the vintage vibe of a second-year LP Special, with mahogany construction, a thick neck profile, and iconic TV Yellow finish. Its "1959" neck profile delivers a substantial, chunky feel for your fretting hand, perfect for players who prefer '50s necks to the SlimTapers of the '60s. Along with its period-correct neck profile, this '56 Les Paul's hardware (such as a wraparound bridge/tailpiece) and one-piece mahogany body deliver a true vintage feel as well. Plus, thanks to dual Soapbar P90s with black covers, you a spectacular, yet substantial single-coil sound to match the rest of the guitar's authentic in-hand feel. From top to bottom, this Les Paul Special Single Cut Reissue exemplifies the quality craftsmanship of the Gibson Custom Shop.
