1994 Gibson Les Paul Special Double Cut DC Heritage Cherry w/ P-90s, Tags & Case, Yamano


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 1994 Gibson Les Paul Special Double Cut in exceptional, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case and hangtags. This Les Paul Special was ordered by Gibson's Japanese distributor Yamano, and Gibson's USA-made guitars distributed via Yamano are often considered among their best, featuring the highest quality woods hand-picked for Gibson's discerning Japanese audience.

Offering the same tonal platform as a late '50s double cutaway Special, this Gibson features a mahogany body and one-piece neck, capped with a rosewood fretboard. Unlike many Les Paul Specials of the era offered by Gibson with P-100 pickups, this particular model features vintage-style P-90 pickups. These true single coils have a glassy treble cut, excellent articulation and plenty of rich midrange bark. Weighing 7lbs 13oz, this Les Paul Special has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and accurate intonation.
