A very rare 1993 Custom Shop Limited Edition (#59 of 300), Les Paul Special Double Cut.
She plays like butter and is much more than a "one-trick pony". I can get amazingly clear jazz tones from her, fun spanky funk, and, of course, the famous snarly growl. She's great for giving a thick rhythm, but can definitely sing and scream for lead!! Lately, I've been using her for slide.
The great thing about the double cut version is that you can get all the way up the neck much the same as with an SG. But unlike SGs that tend to have wider necks and thinner bodies, my Special has the Les Paul 1960 style neck and a very thick body. This translates into a guitar that isn't prone to neck dives.
Mine is a gloss Heritage Cherry with dual P90s. I completely agree that you do not have all of the sounds in the world until you've got a P90 Junior in your arsenal. With so many people swinging the more common Les Pauls, people look up and take notice when you play a Junior.

Does anyone know if some of the '56 LP Jrs were stamped with dark ink?
Attaching a photo of my Gibsons...the only one not in the photo is a SG Classic that I keep at work.
