Les Paul Special Single Cut P90 TV yellow

Recommended Posts

I am looking to buy a 2nd hand LP special, single cut in TV yellow with scratch plate, however they appear to be quite rare below £1,000.

 

I'm based in the uk therefore the availability is less than US or even Japan.

 

The more recent specials no longer have a scratch plate and don't look as good IMO.

 

There are a number of the cherry ones on ebay but TV yellow seem rare at that price point. Does anyone know the history of LP specials mainly regarding those distributed \ sold in the UK

 

Do Gibson bring out every year, and if so which Colour? If they do not bring out every year which year to they re-issue in UK.

 

There do appear to be a few that have sneaked in from Japan, I assume these are made in US for Japanese market, are these standard?

 

Who knows about the special Japan propriety model and how do these compare with standard.

 

Million questions...by the way I'm new, my names Gblues and I'm a guitaraholic....well on the way

They made a limited edition TV yellow DC in 2018. Maybe not what you're looking for. They're weren't a lot available and lots of them seemed to have gotten bought up by Japanese shops. There may actually be some available from US online dealers. Not sure if that could work for you.

 

Here's a coulpe of blemished models.

I got one of the 2018 Les Paul Specials, double cut away in TV Yellow. You had to be fast to find one. I was watching for them close on Sweetwater. I saw then posted late at night, they were sold out in two hours.

I ended up getting a "demo mode", it had a scratch on the back that I can only see in certain lighting. Everybody that plays this guitar loves it. Fit and finish is excellent, very comfortable, and the P90s are very nice. Excellent tone!

I bought one in 2014 when Gibson did a Limited Edition Run & have no intention of selling it.

 

But, there's one on Reverb.com right now.... Here's a Link..

TV yellow always seems the tough one to find in specific models......

 

I looked without any luck and finally bought a cherry DC and waited several more years before a TV Yellow one came along.

The OP is looking for a Single Cut & everyone keeps posting Double Cuts? What's up with that? I guess it doesn't really matter as they haven't jumped on any of them.......

 

 

Because the DCs are just so dang cool. We satisfied owners jump at the chance to discuss them, and it doesn't matter too much in the grand scheme of things. 😜

 

I love mine so much, I'm considering adding another one. I would take a single or double cut away. The one I have now is my first guitar with P-90s, they are incredible.

Gibson have just last night anounced a new 2019 model single cut special in TV yellow!

 

I wish it was double cut, but it’s not, but I’m still going to try and get one!

 

Looks sick though!

Some new ones up... Not sure if the pages are final and the finishes are right
