A dream vintage guitar from Gibsons golden era of solid body electrics: the 1955 Les Special in original TV Yellow finish. This is an original and repair-free Les Paul with vintage Lifton California girl hard case. Beautiful original TV Yellow finish shows play wear on the back of the neck and body. Fingerboard shows wear in the first position but the original frets have no divots and play well. Typical for this year, the factory original short wraptail bushings show some forward lean, but are holding solid with no cracks.
I see no need to change them and have left the guitar original. All original down to the frets and nylon nut. The Kluson Deluxe tuners are working well with one slightly bent gear.Great sounding original P-90 pickups and Grey Tiger capacitors. Wonderful neck shape that plays smoothly with a comfortable, broken-in feel. Perfect weight of 7.38lbs.
