When Gibson first issued the Les Paul Special, its initial purpose was to be somewhere in the middle between a Les Paul Junior and a Les Paul Standard. Gibson now bring you the superb Limited Run edition for 2016 of the Les Paul Special Plus. Unlike the Junior model, the Les Paul Special Plus features two pickups instead of one, offering a much more expansive range of tones with added warmth.


The Les Paul guitar is an icon among musicians all over the world, instantly recognised by its shape. With its single cutaway, multi-piece mahogany body, it looks and feels just great to play. By employing several pieces of mahogany in the construction of the body it is intended to remain reliable and durable over many years.


A mahogany neck is fitted to the body of the Les Paul Special Plus with a comfortable, smooth playing feel. The neck has been shaped to a traditional 60s Les Paul profile that fits perfectly in your hand. Topping the neck is a rosewood fingerboard, providing you with 22 frets to explore. The upper frets are within easy reach thanks to the single cutaway in the body, and with acrylic dot inlays as your guide you can transition with confidence.


The 2016 Les Paul Special Plus has been equipped with not one, but two humbucker pickups. A 490R pickup sits in the neck position while a 498T pickup sits in the bridge position. The pickups complement one another entirely, with original PAF tonal characteristics and superb response. Alnico magnets power the humbuckers, giving powerful midrange and high tones.

There are four control pots, two for Volume and two for Tone, and these are accompanied by a 3-way toggle pickup switch. The controls have also been hand-wired with orange drop capacitors, just like the ones introduced in the 60s, adding stability and accuracy to your desired tone output.


A chrome Tune-o-Matic bridge is fitted to the lower bout of the Les Paul Special Plus with a stopbar tailpiece, improving sustain and resonance with each note.

The Les Paul Special Plus features a black pickguard with a white outline, protecting the body against scratches. The controls have black top hats while the tuners are white, complementing the visual aesthetic of the guitar.

The Gibson 2016 Les Paul Special Plus Limited Run is an incredible electric guitar that combines the best of both modern and vintage Gibson specifications.
