1960 Reissue of the Les Paul Special Doublecut

Les Paul Specials hold a special place in our hearts at the Zoo. Slab mahogany bodies, slim neck profiles, and two rockin' P-90s paired with a wraparound tailpiece...ingredients for a pretty awesome electric guitar if you ask us! Here we have a '60 Reissue made by the Gibson Custom Shop in a TV Yellow finish, light enough to see the grain in the mahogany.

1960 Les Paul Special Doublecut Reissue Feel

This guitar feels even better than an original 1960 LP Special thanks to a lower pickup placement and slimmer neck profile, making it more robust and playable than ever!
