⚌Reduced‼  Gibson Les Paul Special TV Yellow, 1958

The Gibson Les Paul Special TV model appeared in 1955, with the ‘TV’ referring to a special ‘limed’ finish intended to make the guitar more visible on black and white televisions and films. This finish had become available in 1954 on the Les Paul TV, a single-pickup Les Paul Junior. Both models used a slab Mahogany body with no Maple cap, and a Mahogany neck, with a bound Rosewood fingerboard, which into the mid 1960’s meant Brazilian Rosewood.
