Gibson Les Paul Special 1956


I'm thrilled to offer this 1956 Gibson Les Paul Special to the market for the first time since it was sold new! I purchased it from the son of its original owner. It's completely original except for replaced tuner buttons and long bridge post bushings to correct post lean. I am also including its original Lifton hardshell case that's kept it so clean for so many decades!

Measurements: 7.4 lbs / 3.35 kg total weight. The neck measures 1.72"/ 43.8 mm wide at the nut, 0.93" deep at the 1st fret, and 0.99" deep at the 12th fret. The bridge pickup reads 7.20k ohms and the neck pickup reads 7.78k ohms.

Originality: All finish, solder, and parts are original to this guitar except the tuner buttons and bridge post bushings. The original short bushings are included in the case. 

Playability: Fantastic! Once the bridge post bushing were replaced, this guitar stays in tune and plays like a dream!

Condition: Very clean. It's been played but well taken care of its entire life. 

Included: Its original brown hardshell case

Fine Print: All guitars ship via FedEx Priority Overnight for domestic sales or FedEx Priority International. I offer a 48 hour approval period beginning on delivery for all sales during which you are welcome to opt for a return as long as the guitar is still in as-sent condition. I do not charge a restocking fee, but any non-refunded payment processing fees, outbound shipping, and return shipping costs are subtracted from the refund in the case of a return.
