    The guitar that fulfilled the guitar dreams of the '60s generation.

    The Les Paul Special made the virtues of the Les Paul available to those who couldn't quite afford the Standard or Custom versions. And it had all the essential features: solid mahogany body and neck, 2 P-90 pickups, wraparound tailpiece, and 2 volume and 2 tone controls with 3-way switching. This Custom Shop Historic Series re-creation duplicates the original at its finest. This is the single-cutaway version (there was also a 1960s double-cutaway) with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with pearl dot inlays. Nickel hardware.

    Gibson's Custom Shop produces some of the finest electric guitars on earth. Using the best materials money can buy, a staff of skilled luthiers reproduce some of the greatest Gibsons of the past and create stunning new instruments for players and collectors who demand the best.

    Features

    • Solid mahogany single cutaway body and neck
    • 2 P-90 pickups
    • Wraparound tailpiece
    • 2 volume and 2 tone controls with 3-way switching
    • 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with pearl dot inlays
    • Nickel hardware

    Order today and play one of history's finest guitars.

    Don't Confuse the Custom Shop Les Paul Special with the standard production Les Paul Special

    By Ken Rosier

    from Baltimore, MD

    Comments about Gibson Custom 1960 Les Paul Special Single Cutaway Electric Guitar:

    You WILL fall in love with this guitar. I have many custom shop Gibson Les Pauls that are not getting playing time since aquiring this baby.
    I have noticed a number of reviews of this guitar on the web with comments that reference the standard production model. Please keep in mind that the quality, feel and playability of the Custom Shop model blows the standard model out o fthe water and makes it feel like a toy in comparison.

    As the owner of over 100 high quality collectable guitars, I can tell you that this is one of the best playing and sounding guitars available and ANY cost. It just plays plays and feels like butter in your hands! You disciver something special the first time you rap your hand around the neck. And the tone and sustain ofthe wraparound bridge teamed with the P-90s make it a complete tone monstor.
    One of the best made guitars available today. Built like a rock but much lighter.
    I paid $2,600 and knowing what I know now, I would have easily paid $3,600.

    Nice guitar but???? they just came out with almost the same guitar for 1k the Pup are the same, a p90 is a p90 nothing different, so you get a piece of paper and a fancy case, check out the new version of the special they have which costs a little over 1k!

    Best Backup Guitar of all Time

    By Kristina Young

    from Branson, MO

    Comments about Gibson Custom 1960 Les Paul Special Single Cutaway Electric Guitar:

    This reminds me of a gig I did back in the day.So the Band shows up to the venue, and we start to set up the equipment. The sound guy was real nice, and he let us dial in our sounds real good that night. So, while I'm doing the soundcheck my Firebird takes a dump on me. My main guitar was a 3-pickup job, and I figured I needed at least the neck pickup to make the sound go off right. My sister had a Les Paul special she bought off a guy around a week ago, the P-90 job with the wraparound bridge. " Does this thing work?" I asked her (it was pretty ragged looking). She said it screamed and I decided to use that for the show. I use 100-watt Marshall Plexi's, and this axe just absolutley tore from my speaker cones. every note was perfectly formed, as if beamed down from heaven by God himself. It cleaned right up when I needed to roll it down. The show was a hit, the axe made a believer out of me, and the firebird just collects dust now.

    Another Great Gibson!!!

    By RockOnMan-gl8QM

    from Hartwell, GA.

    Comments about Gibson Custom 1960 Les Paul Special Single Cutaway Electric Guitar:

    A lot of people have copied Gibsons, and some are nice guitars, but there is only one Les Paul! This one is very well made and looks great! Mine is red and it plays and sounds so smooth! The "REAL" P-90's deliver so much clear, warm tone and sustain you won't believe your ears! Buy one and enjoy!

    Comments about Gibson Custom 1960 Les Paul Special Single Cutaway Electric Guitar:

    I acquired my guitar used at a shop in NC. I have to say that this is the guitar for me. It's lightweight, plays fantastic, and does everyhting I want it to do. I plug into my Bassman and away I go. I have so many people asking me where I get my tone from, and I just tell them gibson. Best guitar out there. period. no debate.
