Can anyone out there in TGP-Land tell me when the last production year of Gibson's LP Special, VOS model, single-cutaway TV finish? This was a CS guitar, with 2 p-90s and just the wraparound bridge. Also, does anyone know the price they were going for (retail) in their last year of production? This would be a big help, as I've found a NOS model at a nearby retailer, but feel they're asking too high a price. Also, the guitar itself appears as though it may actually be used, although they're listing it as new. It's got strap lock buttons on it instead of the stock buttons, and the cellophane "VOS" sticker on the pick guard is missing. I thought I could see some pick swirls on the pick guard, and would be curious to know what experienced Gibson guys would think a fair price on this would be if indeed, it IS used. Any help appreciated!
