The Les Paul Special is a beloved design that oozes retro charm. Armed with a set of dual P-90s, a beautiful gloss nitro finish and a chunky Vintage ‘50s neck profile, this old-school number is an absolute joy to play.

Body & Neck

The Les Paul Special gets the double Mahogany combo for both the body & neck, complete with a lush gloss nitro finish. A bound Rosewood fingerboard with acrylic dots offers smooth feel and tone in equal measure, warm with a confident attack that’s complemented by the snappy P-90 setup.

The ‘50s Vintage Mahogany neck balances the guitar out brilliantly, while providing a familiar grip that’s every bit as classic as you’d expect. The finish continues along the neck, while the headstock boasts the classic blackout look.

Electronics & Hardware

One of the standout things about the Les Paul Special is the dual attack of P-90 pickups, lending themselves to high-octane blues as well as raunchy rock songs. These pickups sound gorgeous when you plug into a gritty tube amp or a lovely dirt pedal.

Chrome hardware and black top hat control knobs offer little distraction from the Special’s retro looks, polished off with a subtle wraparound bridge and 5-fly pickguard in black. Delightful.
