Check this out. I am very fond of Gibson Les Paul Specials, especially ones with humbuckers. I was in GC about three weeks ago and saw this:
http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/uu144/james149/IMG-20120222-00013.jpg

This is the GC Exclusive Les Paul Special Pro. It has coil taps, 60's neck and gloss finish. Price....$999.

Now check this out. This is a new model that just showed up at Wildwood, Zzounds and MF about a week ago.

This is called the Les Paul Junior Special. It has the 60's neck, gloss finish AND a bound neck.Keep in mind that this guitar comes with either P-90's or humbuckers. Price.....$799 ($749 if you prefer the satin finish).

Aside from the coil taps this seems like the same guitar? No? Why is the GC model $200 more?

Here's the kicker. I actually bought the GC model about three weeks ago. I ended up returning it due to a severe fret sprout issue. Now I plan to buy one of these LP Junior Special's. At nearly $200 less I am glad I was able to return the Special Pro. I plan to get one of these in a few weeks.


I don't understand the Gibson thought process here. Two models, nearly identical but one costs 20 percent less. Makes no sense to me.:messedup

That's worth $200? BTW, neither of these have binding...unless you're referring to the bound neck on the Junior Special (which ironically is the cheaper of the two models).

I just ordered one of the ones for $749. As best as I could tell, the differences are coil tap, hardshell case (as opposed to gig bag), rosewood fretboard (as opposed to baked maple fretboard), shape of the pickguard, bound fretboard and tuning keys.

About a year 1/2 ago Guitar Center started with an GC exclusive model that was for Retail Sales only - They were $999 and it was a Single Cut, Rosewood Fingerboard Bound Neck, P90, with a Belly Cut relief on the back, and a gig bag. The came in Heritage Cherry and Natural Walnut. They were supposed to be a limited run / edition. Another run was done and they were / are now $899 in locals stores by me. A little while back, perhaps Presidents day these were marked down to $729 or $739. There are a few locally left around NJ/NY

The $1299 model with the non-bound Ebony fingerboard was at 1st an American Musical Supply exclusive. These shipped with a Gibson Thin Line LP case. They came in White, Yellow and Vintage Sunburst. There is a Double Cut model also. Over the summer Musicians Friend was blowing them out at $799. AFAIK none of retailers have the single cuts in stock any more. AMS has the double cuts down to $1099.

The Special Pro is another GC exclusive and I'm sure has a good margin for GC to be able to runs sales on - @ 15% off you at $850 and your getting the coil splits. GC has the upper hand that you can't price shop this against other retailers.

The new model at $749 - $799 has the Baked Maple board and my hunch is the pricing is set to quell the concern for lack of the Rosewood. I would also look at the overall finish of the paint. Some of the recent lower costing single PUP Juniors had poorly finished / sanded bodies that you could see grain right though the paint.

Looking closely at the specs, the differences are in the neck construction and pickups. The Les Paul Special Pro has a different bridge humbucker and fingerboard-- ("obeche"/aka "ebony"?). The Junior special has a maple fret board (but bound). Also, there maybe differences in the body construction. The junior bodies are multi-piece. Perhaps the special is not--or has fewer pieces?

Scott L
03-15-2012, 07:55 AM
Obeche is not Ebony - dark and hard yes but a less costly wood.

At this point until you get up the food chain on Les Pauls to the $2300 Traditional you are no longer getting Rosewood.

Gibson got much better at getting the look / color down. The lack of pores / and the tight grain is the way to tell.

NO tele on earth can produce the thick growl and bite of a Les Paul, even a lowly Special!!! I hate the tele twang...not my thing!
I can get a brand new Junior Special LP with gloss finish from Zzounds or MF with a 15% off sale for around $680 brand new. Show me a used Studio with gloss finish for that much. I own a studio and a LP Special with buckers. I prefer the Special. It is lighter and more comfortable to play but side by side through the same amp they sound nearly identical!!

Yeah, all of my LP's have humbuckers. I played a P-90 equipped LP Studio Tribute 60's the other day and it sounded great!!
Maybe my next LP will have P-90's. It will likely be the new Junior Special LP in either gloss tobacco burst or gloss yellow!!

you're assuming that everybody (or even a majority of people) who buys a guitar looks at every possible source. Some people walk in, look around, and buy what they like. They never look online at the other guy, they never search the internet, and never have even heard of "The Gear Page".

That's why an item can be 200 dollars more in one store than another... among other things...

Obeche is not Ebony - dark and hard yes but a less costly wood.

At this point until you get up the food chain on Les Pauls to the $2300 Traditional you are no longer getting Rosewood.

I know this post is late to the party, but here's my .02. sorry if it's a long winded rant...

1. Prices from the factory will generally be pretty rational. If seemingly similar guitars with the same promotional scheme are $200 different - there is something you need to look for. Pickups, wood (Obeche. Baked Maple Rosewood or Ebony) construction - Solid vs 5 piece, and Case/no Case can all factor in here. What is "worth it" or important to you will help you decide - but you need to know the differences. General assumption (see #3 though) - the 'better' or most desirable components will only be available at the higher levels.

2. They use this approach to get you to spend up - if you want Rosewood (even if you don't care about Gloss, or Burst Buckers or whatever) you gotta go for at least the Traditional). Want Binding and Humbuckers with P-90's? only in some years, or from the custom shop.

3. Sellers will be motivated by different things - inventory, sales forecasts, cash flow. There are a shitload of good examples in this thread where someone got "the better" model for less than the next one down the food chain. You gotta find the motivated sellers, and use coupons/discounts.

My Final point - Any of these guitars can be great or just OK. From Slabs to Customs, they can be fine instruments. Example - Leslie West's Junior - "a tree with a pickup stuck on it". The trick is that you gotta figure out what you want, and then play them to find the right one - don't just buy by price. I had a real nice LP Custom that I gave to my brother, and now have a '94 Studio that I love just as much.

Check this out. I am very fond of Gibson Les Paul Specials, especially ones with humbuckers. I was in GC about three weeks ago and saw this:
http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/uu144/james149/IMG-20120222-00013.jpg

This is the GC Exclusive Les Paul Special Pro. It has coil taps, 60's neck and gloss finish. Price....$999.
__________________________________________________ ___________

Now check this out. This is a new model that just showed up at Wildwood, Zzounds and MF about a week ago.
http://www.wildwoodguitars.com/images/products/les_paul_103120686_f.jpg http://www.wildwoodguitars.com/images/products/les_paul_jr_102721377_f.jpg http://www.wildwoodguitars.com/images/products/les_paul_jr_101820351_f.jpg


This is called the Les Paul Junior Special. It has the 60's neck, gloss finish AND a bound neck.Keep in mind that this guitar comes with either P-90's or humbuckers. Price.....$799 ($749 if you prefer the satin finish).

Aside from the coil taps this seems like the same guitar? No? Why is the GC model $200 more?

Here's the kicker. I actually bought the GC model about three weeks ago. I ended up returning it due to a severe fret sprout issue. Now I plan to buy one of these LP Junior Special's. At nearly $200 less I am glad I was able to return the Special Pro. I plan to get one of these in a few weeks.


I don't understand the Gibson thought process here. Two models, nearly identical but one costs 20 percent less. Makes no sense to me.:messedup

Mine showed up yesterday. My initial impressions are it's a great playing guitar. It was new in an unopened box from Gibson. The setup is not bad at all. Intonation is spot on. I might tweak it a little to play with the action, but I wouldn't say I "need" to.

Sounds great! The pickups are a tad bit on the bright side for buckers, which ids a good thing. You can roll off treble, hard to add it back in. Neck feels good. I like the satin finish. It's thin - you can easily see the wood grain through it. Baked maple feels a little stiff, but I'll put some lemon oil on it when I change strings. I don't have a scale, but I'd guess it's in the 8 - 9 lbs range. Not bad.

I suppose my only complaint would be the binding on the neck. Looks plasticy and the color is like a peach. Doesn't look anything like aged binding that had yellowed.

All in all it's a keeper. I'll post more after I get a chance to get her broken in.

Just ordered the Junior Special w/P90's, Heritage Cherry, Gloss...can't wait! Any of you guys know if this fits comfortably in a standard les paul case or will I need to order a special (no pun intended) case for it?

Nice, I almost bought that!

Decided since it was identical to my white one though that I should maybe get a doublecut instead.

It's identical to my white one too :) I got it because I chickened out getting a yellow one when I ordered the white one, and my son got sticky fingers for the white one too. Guess who's all over this one.... Looks like I'm back to the white one ;)
