    I'm seriously considering this. I think I can get it for $225 USD, w/super clean Epi hsc (which of course I would cover in stickers).

    Do I need it? No hell no. I already have a Gibby LP Special in matte black, a cherry doublecut Hamer Special, and a sunburst Epi Junior (not the $99 boltneck guitar, a "limited edition" setneck "'57 Reissue" with a Seymour Duncan Antiquity P-90 upgrade and badass-style intonatable bridge). But I do loves me some Les Paul Specials, and this TV White gloss finish... nom

    A setneck?

    This is a setneck, not the bolt-neck version.

    Looks like the '55 TV refinish I just sold to a mate.
    I had already 'ruined' the guitar by restoring it.
    Went with fender trans blonde just to be spiteful, when I found out.
    But it was waaaaay more pretty than tv yellow.
    Funny than a beat up unplayable guitar is worth vintage dollars, making one look new is worthless.
    These guitars do the 'woman tone' in spades.
    Beats wearing a Les special for three hours, too.

    Plays great! I'll need to apply some Magic Spray to the pots but otherwise fine. Intonation and action are spot-on. Have only had a chance to play while trying out at seller's through his Mesa. Hopefully will play more tonight at Casa Krashpad.

    Thanks. I'm a big fan of Les Paul Specials. I've been working my ass off lately, and this is a cheapie, so I deserve it. ;)
