    Les Paul Special P90 weight.

    Just interested to hear peoples thoughts on guitar weight. I’m having to send a Gibson Les Paul Special in TV yellow back, it weighs 8.2lbs and the one I’m receiving is 7.3lbs. I’m interested to hear how they compare. I’m used to the heavier Standards and this is my first Special. Is the general...

    Trying to identify the legitimacy of this Epiphone Les Paul Special

    This Les Paul special is available for a great price in my area but I've been unable to find it based on the serial number and so I have no idea whether it is real, what year it's from or what the pickups in it could be. It seems to have a little wear - and possibly a tiny bit of rust - so I'm...

    What’s your favorite P-90s Les Paul?

    Among the current Gibson USA lineup, what is your favorite Les Paul with P-90? Personally I’m torn between the Standard 50s and one of the Specials. I like the slab body P-90s combo, I don’t know if prefere it over the maple on mahogany body. However, I prefer the two piece bridge over the one...

    NVGD: 1955 Les Paul Special

    I wanted to share a recent arrival to my home - a 1955 Les Paul Special. This one has a handful of non-original parts, but is easily the best one that I've ever had. This is the third one that I've owned and I think it's going to stick this time. I previously had a refinished '58 that I sold and...

    Gotoh 510UB Wraparound bridge install on '18 Special DC

    I ran into a road block on my upgrade to my '18 Special DC. I wanted a bridge I could adjust intonation on, and settled on the Gotoh 510 UB. That arrived this week and I started to install it BUT the studs are M8 thread (instead of SAE 5/16 24 UNF) and the inserts provided require 11 mm drilled...

    NGD: 2015 LP Special DC

    I found a fun guitar at L&M's Attic sale : Somebody swapped the robo-tuners for gold Grovers. Nice and light, sings well, though I might put a tunable wrap-around bridge on it - the intonation gets a little iffy up above the 12th fret. Feels like a nice base for some mods and very playable...

    2012 Les Paul Special w/ neck inlays, neck and body binding?

    I have a chance to trade for this guitar on Craigslist. The person in the email they sent said it is a "2012 Gibson Les Paul Special Faded". The Special pickguard combined with the neck inlays and neck binding seems weird. Then there is some sort of binding on the body as well. Even the top of...

    LP Special, T.O.M or wraparound?

    Hi guys, so long story short, i recently recorded with a original 57' single cut special and it was hands down the best sounding guitar i have ever played. Since then I've been trying to get something similar, be it Gibson or a handmade. The original had: - unpotted P90's ( obviously ) - very...

    Need help! About the set neck Epi LP Jrs ('57 RI) and Specials.

    hey all! First post, but longtime lurker and I've gleaned a ton of valuable information from you people! SO, everybody on here raves about the '57 Reissue Epi Jr, often going so far as to say it's as good as the recent Gibson juniors. So I went on the hunt for one, and word seems to have gotten...

    NVGD: 1957 Les Paul Special

    Well, Jon sort of outed me (or more accurately, I felt like I had to out myself) in another thread, but I suppose I'll make it official. I got this '57 TV Special from Detroit Guitar a few weeks back. I had a refinished '58 a couple of years ago that was nice as well, but I've grown into a real...
