2015 Gibson Les Paul Special (Vintage Correct Kluson Tuners!)

$1,150.00

This beauty is a 2015 Gibson Les Paul Special Double Cut with 2 P90s made for the 100 year Les Paul Anniversary. It has the signed “Les Paul 100” and the Les Paul hologram on the back of the headstock.

Other than hairline pick scratches on the finish from being played, the guitar is in perfect condition. It has a slim and wide neck. And it has vintage-correct Kluson tuners, versus the “auto-tuning system” that Gibson pushed for a few years there. It was ultimately a failed attempt by Gibson to do something very innovative, but it didn’t work out (good for them for trying it, I suppose). But these GREAT guitars of this era are usually cursed with that auto tuning system. This one, on the other hand, is not. Apparently, this guitar came from Gibson without the auto-tuning system and has vintage-correct Kluson tuners instead.

The guitar is in excellent condition. It plays great and sounds great. The P90s are just what you’d want them to be. Awesome guitar. The guitar comes with the original case (very nice and in great condition, with case candy and such).

You can demo this product and more at The Local Pickup guitar showroom in Rock Hill, SC (Charlotte, NC).
