Purchasing Gibson Les Paul Special


Recommended Posts

Hi,  I am thinking of buying my first Les Paul Special model and just have a few simple questions related to these models. 

I've come across a lot of Specials when searching online, but I noticed some of them are named SP Juniors with two humbuckers and P90s.
Is there a difference between Special and Junior Special with two pickups, or are they basically the same guitars with different names?

I found this Gibson Les Paul Special Junior with Humbuckers which I like. I think it has been manufactured somewhere between 2002 and  2006.
The price is reasonable and it is in good condition but as I found it online, I cannot try it. Is there anything specific about these models I should be aware of? 😀

Thanks in advance

I can't answer your questions but I'm pretty sure that model you're looking at is a satin finish, not a gloss.

I went through that trying to find a TV Yellow Special many years ago - the seller was pissed when I sent it back.
