Collection Spotlight: 1956 Gibson Les Paul Special

All of us here at Cumberland Guitars absolutely love 1950's Gibson Les Paul Special and Junior models. The stripped-down nature really shines a spotlight on the design mantra of less is more. Here is only what you need, and nothing fancy on top of that. It doesn't need to be gorgeous because it's a tool. It just needs to work, and work well. That is exactly what this 1956 Gibson Les Paul Special does. 

I'm a sucker for TV Yellow lacquer finishes. The story behind why a yellow guitar was necessary is quite fascinating and we would love to share it with you anytime, just ask us the next time you stop by the shop! 

This charming '56 features the original alligator case, original hang tags, and more. This one is a blast to play, stop by and give it a spin while we still have it!
