1958 Gibson Les Paul Special TV Yellow + Lifton 5 Latch OHSC

The cleanest of the three TV Specials we have right now and included is it's original Lifton 5 latch case. Not something you often see...

Sorry, this item was sold out.

Let it be known we love these guitars. There is something quite magical about the combination of the searing hot, vintage P-90 pickups, on a lightweight mahogany body and finished in this sublime blond, straw like, limed mahogany TV finish that you only get on these TV Juniors and Specials from the 1955 to 1958.

This particular example of this superb guitar is from early 1958 and has the poker chip type switch washer. It is also just about near mint too, in fact the nickel is still fairly shiny like, bright and there are just a few small dings here and there that would prevent me from describing it as totally near mint. Have a look at the photos and you will see what I am talking about. I think it is one of the cleanest we have had for some time…

Included is a classic, Les Paul Lifton 5 latch case of the Cali Girl variety which on its own is worth a few Bob and if you did not want the case with this amazing guitar we would be prepared to deduct a few Bob…

Needless to say it is 100% correct in every way. I cannot see a thing out of place and even the original frets are still almost as new with no wear at all on the figured fingerboard. There are no repairs or finish issues anywhere at all.

Everyone should have at least one Junior or Special in their collection, or playing guitarsenal and if you are going to have one, this should easily be the one as it is one of the finest we have had around here for a while…
