Gibson Les Paul Special HB Worn / Faded TV Yellow Relic 2002 Electric Guitar

This is a 2002 Gibson Les Paul Special in faded TV Yellow finish. These get a thin nitrocellulose finish at the factory so they show wear quickly to achieve a worn relic appearance. You'll see in pictures that this one has some wear on the body, edges and underneath the neck. This Les Paul special is the HB version which features 498T/490R pickups rather than the P100s. In 2002 the Special could come with either. It has a 60s slim taper neck. This Les Paul Special has a mahogany body and neck with rosewood fretboard. 


  • This is a used guitar. 

  • Physically this unit is in good condition. The wear is accentuated due to the very thin nitrocellulose finish, which was a feature of this model/finish. It looks to me like the previous owner may have also tried to speed up this wear. It does also have some other small dents and marks. The Pick guard cover holes have been filled in. It plays very nicely for a 20 year old guitar. Please see all photos for further details. 

  • The 498T/490R have been checked. They have the Gibson logo on the back. The Potentiometers have been checked. They are original Gibson pots produced by CTS. 

  • This guitar has been tested. It is fully functional, the intonation has been checked. There are no faults to note. 

  • This Gibson has had a minor service. This included:

    • Cleaning the neck, buffed and polished frets. Oiled the neck.

    • String height / action adjustment. 

    • Body has been cleaned and metal hardware has been polished. 

    • Graphite has been added to nut. 

    • Brand new D'addario regular light gauge 10-49 strings have been installed.

  • For safety during shipping, tension will be taken off the neck. The guitar will need to be tuned on arrival. 

  • Please note that although we have tested the intonation and set up the guitar here, due to the nature of guitars as well as the shipping and handling process there is a chance you will need to set up the guitar again. The set up may need to be modified to suit your personal preferences. 

  • Guitars picked up from our West Gosford store will set up ready to play!
