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.
