We present an all original and 100% complete 1960 Gibson Les Paul Special DC in TV Yellow, Made in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
This exceptional Gibson Les Paul Special comes directly from the original owner. The color is commonly known as TV Yellow, but the color is actually called Cream in the Gibson catalog from 1960. This Gibson Les Paul Special Double Cut is in excellent and super clean condition with just minor nicks and dings. This guitar has some serious mojo! The original finish is still very strong. We have graded this guitar to near mint condition. No breaks or any repairs – 100% original! This guitar sounds absolutely amazing with its original P-90 “Soap-bar” pickups, which are well balanced and strong. Great lightweight and resonant mahogany body.
The original frets are perfect with plenty of life left. The original “2/3 Kluson on the stripe” tuners are still in place and work perfectly. Medium sized 1-piece mahogany with rosewood fretboard, Wrap-around aluminum tailpiece, 4x black Reflector knob and 3-way toggleswitch. Still with silkscreen Les Paul on the headstock with no fading.
