That is exactly what a Special should be. Well done.
The upside of those is the upper fret access. They do need a gentle touch.
Congrats on the score! Mahogany and P-90s,hard to beat!
This is my luthier made '57 Special style---I used to have an original,and like a dummy I traded it.
I've had a regular maple capped LP for a long time and it's a sweet machine, but having spent some time with the much thinner uncapped Special LP recently (also thinner and smaller than strat's/tele's), I've grown to like it. You can really push it around and have your way with it.
P90's are icing on the cake.
I've never been a LP guy, but if I was I'd want one just like that.
Nice, TV yellow is awesome. I normally don’t get giddy over Les Pauls...unless they have P90’s or whatever single coils they used prior to humbuckers!
Congrats! I’ve got the same one, too (2019 Original Collection). My one and only Les Paul. These snarl but also clean up very nicely. TV Yellow just rocks! And yes, just about a perfect a neck as you could want.
Very, very nice Special! Enjoy!
I had an SG with P-90's. Loved the pickups, hated the neck although I liked the Plek'd frets. I ended up selling the guitar. When Gibson gets it right you can turn the volume half-way down and still get fine sound and the tone controls are nicely progressive too. A fine chunk of neck, nice binding; turn it up and you're the big dog.
I have been lusting for any variety of a Gibson (not Epi) LP Special, but have difficulty pulling the trigger based on new prices. Congrats, it is a very sweet axe.
Oh Yeah, Sauce!
If you're jonesin' for a Special and don't want to fork out a grand, here's an idea: Hamer Special K.
I recently got one and I'm THRILLED!
They retail for around $600 - I found mine online at a mom-and-pop music store in Maryland that bought up the inventory of a guitar shop that was circling the drain - got it for $499 delivered.
Plays like butter.
P90s are amazing.
Korina body and neck, ebony fingerboard, even the tuners stay tuned.
Three-way switch was garbage, and is getting replaced.
Also somewhat neck-heavy, which I'm going to address by adding wheel weights inside the control cavity.
But overall, best guitar I've purchased in some time right out of the box.
And it fits in a standard LP case, so no worries there.
I think they just did a limited run of these, so get one while you can.
It's made in Indonesia, but the fish don't care how much your rod cost.
Don't let Gibson's price stop you. I have the Epi version and it's ... basically the same.
The Special that Rick uses is a DC.
Congrats! I have one just like it and it’s a fantastic guitar. The chunky neck really plays nice and they did a great job on the frets. I could really go on and on because it’s all good, and yeah that smell.
That guitar has been in my bucket list for awhile now…
I really like em! I have not smelled that smell in a long time!!!
