Gibson's Take:

Legend has it that the famous "TV Yellow" color of the Les Paul Special was named for its vivid appearance on black & white televisions in the 1950s. That's debatable. What's not up for debate is the indelible imprint this model had on music history since its inception. The classy looks and thick, meaty tones of the Les Paul Special have been preferred by players of all genres. And this 1957 Les Paul Special Reissue from Custom Shop revives every single feature in spectacular detail for the ultimate vintage ownership experience -- from the solid mahogany construction to the roaring P90s.

Our Take:

The conversation regarding the famous "TV Yellow" color of the Les Paul Special will continue on for some time; but the legacy of this instrument is unanimously agreed upon. Clearly inspired by the idea that "less is more", the simplicity and huge sound that the Les Paul Special is beloved for is pretty hard not to love. It's no wonder to us why it's used by all walks of guitar players! Two Custom Soapbar P-90 pickups, a slab of solid Mahogany, and a Vintage 50s Mahogany neck with a Rosewood fingerboard all combine to create a monster of a guitar. And of course, there's no beating that TV Yellow finish!
