Here we have an amazing TV Yellow Les Paul Special from 1958. This is last year of the single cut Les Paul Special and features 2 of Gibson's famous P-90 pickups. This one appears to be all original and is in great condition. The TV Yellow color came about when white guitars were found to not work well on black and white TV shows. This creamy yellow color showed better on film and thus became TV Yellow. So this is not only one of the most collectible Les Paul Guitars but also has a place in pop culture and TV history.

1958 Gibson Les Paul Special - Solid Body Electric Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"This is a very rare and wonderful 1958 Les Paul Special. It's in great condition and plays beautifully. This was among the last single cut Specials in 1958 before the switch to the double cut that later became the SG model. It's very exciting to hold and play this guitar it's take you right back to the early days of rock n' roll, television and pop culture. A gem." - Paul Heumiller

"I love these guitars. I remember salivating over one of these in my old Gibson catalog, back when I was a youngster. "TV Yellow" was used for these guitars because white guitars would glare too much on early black and white television broadcasts, whereas TV Yellow guitars would not cast a glare. This one is in great condition and has just the right sized neck and body. What a joy." - Al Petteway
