What if you took the sought-after style and features of Gibson’s “student-level” double cuts of the ’50s and ’60s and rebuilt them into a premium Custom Shop instrument? You might end up with something that resembles the Gibson Custom Les Paul Special Double Cut Figured Top. Choice electronics — Custombucker Alnico III PAF pickups fed into high-grade CTS pots — equip this guitar for classic blues to red-blooded rock ‘n’ roll. Tastefully aged nickel hardware adorn a beautifully figured maple-capped bound mahogany body and rosewood-clad Slim Taper mahogany neck in this one-of-a-kind double cut, made all the more irresistible by a paper-thin VOS aged nitrocellulose finish. Top Hat knobs, kidney-style Grover tuners, and an ABR-1 Tune-o-matic bridge give the Les Paul Special Double Cut Figured Top flair and performance in all the right places.

Inspired by Les Paul Juniors and Specials from 1959–1960

The Les Paul Special Double Cut Figured Top draws inspiration from two double-cut Les Paul models straight out of Gibson’s Golden Age: the Les Paul Junior and Les Paul Special. The double cutaway design is equal parts form and function, allowing thumb-over and thumb-behind players alike to access higher frets without encumbrance well beyond the neck joint. Paired with a speedy 1960s Slim Taper mahogany neck, the Les Paul Special Double Cut Figured Top is one axe you don’t want to miss out on.

Custombucker pickups deliver timeless PAF tone

When it comes to capturing that classic Gibson tone, nothing beats the sound of its very own painstaking Custombucker PAF (“Patent Applied For” — Seth Lover’s original 1950s humbucker design) re-creations. For classic country to modern high-gain, you’ll love the tight low end, complex midrange, and sweet highs you’ll be able to coax out of these pickups. the Les Paul Special Double Cut Figured Top’s Custombucker pickups are some of the most historically accurate PAF copies available today. Premium 500K CTS tone and volume pots complete the circuit.
