Gibson Les Paul Special 1960 Cherry Red
Condition: very good
Case: original soft
1960 Gibson Les Paul Special, Cherry Red, P-90 pickups, combination stop tail piece, bound Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard.
Vibrant un-faded finish, heel repair by Lay's Guitar Shop, otherwise 100% original condition including brown "alligator" case.
This very cool LP Special has a late '59 neck shape; rounded but not too fat, as opposed to the flat/wide contour seen on most '60/61 models.
The heel was broken about 30 years ago...... the break was along the grain in the heel tenon - there was no damage to the body. It sat untouched in it's case until we purchased it from the original owner and sent it to Lay's for expert repair and finish touch-up.
The guitar is very resonant with lots of chime, the P-90's are fat & rich, and it oozes with vintage mojo and patina.
