Since its inception, the Gibson Custom Shop has been dedicated to accurately recreating the most renowned vintage Gibson instruments. With the Vintage Original Spec series, we have come closer than ever to achieving that goal.
Using a combination of traditional craftsmanship and modern technology, the brilliant luthiers of the Custom Shop painstakingly reproduce the key elements that define a cool vintage instrument: stunning looks, flawless playability, and unsurpassed tone.
As always with our Custom Shop guitars, you will experience an instrument that faithfully recreates our most sought-after classics down to the smallest details.
The Gibson Les Paul Special's solid mahogany body is carved with a double cutaway for good upper-fret access, and was given a flat "slab" top for ease of manufacture. The neck is constructed from solid mahogany carved to Gibson's popular "slim taper" profile, which offers a blend of speed and comfort.
The neck shape on the Gibson Les Paul guitar is an outstanding marriage between the rounded '50s profile and super-slim early '60s profile. A rosewood fingerboard enhances the Gibson guitar's note attack and articulation.
Dual Gibson P-90 pickups give the Les Paul Special guitar a snappy, slightly gritty response, with a chunky midrange, firm lows, and sweet, musical highs. In the bridge position, the P-90 packs plenty of snarly cutting power, while in the neck position it can be surprisingly rich and refined.
