1959 Gibson Les Paul Special DC Electric Guitar

52 folks are watching this 1959 Gibson Les Paul Special DC Electric Guitar from the good ol’ USA. She is all kinds of lovely.

This 7.11 pound honey is mostly original: Mahogany body and neck (though her fingerboard binding has been touched up); Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard; three Centrella pots and bumble bee caps; pick guard; three-way switch; rubber grommet Rhythm/Treble surround; headstock inlay and neck carve.

She also has some non-original parts in her: three on a side tuners; Kent Armstrong stacked P-90 pickups; compensated bridge; truss rod and cover; one pot and cap; and her case.

Oh, and her neck appears to have been reset (hardly surprising for a 56-year old guitar that, from the wear on her fingerboard, has clearly and lovingly been played).

There’s just something about this axe that makes my heart beat faster. She’s got fire, spunk and spirit. She was born to play and she has been living her mission ever since. It’s imperative we find her a great home.

Do the right side of your brain a favor and soak in her pictures. She says so much with so little.

If this 1959 Gibson Les Paul Special DC Electric Guitar has reduced you to babbling, as she clearly has done to me, then pony up and bring her home for $2795 Buy it Now on eBay.

Go get her.
