|Comments||If you’ve ever wondered what the term ‘Closet Classic’ means – this is it. A near-mint 1959 Gibson Les Paul TV Model; the guitar has been played but has also been taken care of.The TV model was produced to address the needs of television production – this colour, it turned out, was most visible on black-and-white television sets. The TV model is basically a Les Paul Junior with the TV finish, and a decal identifying it as a ‘TV MODEL’ rather than ‘JUNIOR’.|
