The Gibson Custom Les Paul Special Maple Top Electric Guitar in Dark Cherry is a limited-edition model that offers a stripped-back affair without compromising on quality. If you're seeking a more low-key visual aesthetic, yet crave the sublime tones produced by the Les Paul, then the Special Maple Top is just what you've been looking for. Don't hang about though, as this limited-edition model won't be around for long.
Classic single-cutaway body
Endowed with the body shape of one of the most iconic instruments ever created, the Les Paul Special has a lot to live up to. Crafted using a solid mahogany back, the guitar establishes a rich tonal foundation with warmth and energy. Paired with the back is a two-piece figured maple top, which counters the mahogany with a crisp high-end to ensure a balanced output.
The guitar has been treated to a dark cherry paint job, which is protected by a layer of nitrocellulose lacquer to uphold the finish for as long as possible.
Sturdy single-piece neck
Fitted to the body of the Gibson Custom Les Paul Special Maple Top is a durable mahogany neck. Shaped to the medium C-shape profile, the neck provides a substantial yet manageable feel in the hand. Paired with the neck is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 frets that are decorated with simple dot position inlays to guide your way. Thanks to the Les Paul's classic single-cutaway, all frets are within easy reach so that you can explore in freedom.
Custom P90 Soapbar pickups
The body is fitted with a pair of Custom P90 Soapbar pickups, which each have hand-wired volume and tone control pots for seamless attenuation. Whether you're practising at home or performing to an adoring crowd, you can rest assured that your Les Paul Special will sing with glee. From deep and dirty blues to hard rock sonic assaults, this awesome guitar can do it all, and does it in style.
Hardware and finish
The body is equipped with an ABR-1 bridge and stop bar tailpiece, which work together dutifully to optimise intonation and sustain. The headstock bears Kluson Deluxe 3-on-a-side tuning machines, which tirelessly maintain tuning integrity throughout the most demanding of performances.
The Les Paul Special features a faux tortoise pickguard, which complements the dark cherry finish in subtle fashion. The black top hat controls complete the understated package.
The Gibson Custom Les Paul Special Maple Top Electric Guitar in Dark Cherry is supplied with a brown/pink Custom Shop hardshell case, which allows you to get your pride and joy to any gig in style.
