(SOLD) Gibson Les Paul Special P-90 Natural Gloss 2012
Gibson Les Paul Special P-90, natural mahogany finish, made in USA 2012. The LP Special is a superbly cool and very practical take on the evergreen Gibson singlecut. It's similar to a junior in that it's a slim body with a flat top, but you also get a body carve, two P-90s and the trad four knob electronics. This one is delightfully light; it's resonant and sprightly in the hands and easy on the shoulders; combined with the slim neck, this is an effortless player. The P-90s offer the snap and chime in the treble end of a single coil paired with a thick, juicy midrange that eats up overdrive with gleeful abandon. The natural gloss nitro is a tidy and classy finish, combined with cream-bound rosewood board and black trim, this is a offers an upmarket twist on a classically punk aesthetic. Mix one part suave with three parts awesome... and you'll get this.
