Here we have a really cool 2015 Gibson Les Paul Special Double Cut Electric Guitar in excellent condition. Very nice translucent Yellow finish on an all-mahogany body and neck with brushed chrome hardware. The guitar has a lovely action and the thin “D” profile neck with a slightly wider creme bound rosewood fretboard has a really good feel. The frets are in excellent condition. We have replaced the G-Force tuning system with more traditional Gotoh styled tulip heads, we enclose the G-Force in the sale should you wish to re-install it!
The 2 Alnico slug P-90 pickups have that classic soapbar tone with good output. The guitar is equipped with a wraparound tailpiece, an adjustable height nut and Gotoh style Tulip tuners.
In 2015 Gibson is giving all Les Paul and SG models (with the exception of the LP Supreme & Derek Truck’s SG) the innovative G-Force System which allows the instrument to be automatically and perfectly tuned in seconds. It has been simplified and its functions enhanced over the preceding Min-ETune system. It also allows for open and drop tunings, as well as giving you possibility to program your own custom tunings.
Quick action adjustments with Gibson’s new Zero Fret-Nut
An innovative and patent applied for “Zero Fret-Nut” offers two main advantages: 1. The Fret-Nut ensures the open tones as well as played notes to sound more balanced and even. 2. The nut provides action adjustment and thereby guarantees a longer life than other nuts made from bone or plastic.
The hardware includes the new Gibson Lightning Bar Wraparound bridge, which weighs less and is easier to adjust. All of the instruments receive a professional setup with PLEK technology, promising the perfect shape of the frets and guaranteeing precise intonation.
When designing the 2015 Les Paul models, Gibson clearly wanted to improve playability and comfort even further. On each side Gibson has made the neck and fretboard wider by .050”. As a result playing bends and vibrato on the outer strings has become much easier and comfortable. Together with the adjustable action of the new Zero Fret nut and the smoother sanded, buffed and oiled fingerboard, the 2015 Gibson line-up is set to deliver the easiest and most comfortable playability.
Optically the Gibson 2015 models are reminiscent of the classics. All Les Paul models are equipped with the traditional Pearl dot inlays and possess the “100” logo on the headstock, as well as a hologram of the man himself who founded this successful American guitar manufacturer and is celebrating his 100th birthday this year.
GIBSON Les Paul Special Double Cut
The Gibson Les Paul Special Double Cutaway first saw the light of day in 1958 and has remained a favourite for many to this day. Its double cutaway gives exceptional access to the highest frets and paired with the Slim Taper neck profile ensures great playability. The mahogany flat slab body is equipped with two P-90 pickups delivering that snarling rock’n’roll tone.
