I still have my 1958 Les Paul Special - called a TV Special. That is because when they first came out he [Les Paul] played it on TV when TV 1st came out. My serial # is in gold leaf and is less than 1000 - which there was just so many made. It has the first sunburst every put on a Gibson guitar - which is more yellow than orange. When I get a chance - I'll take a photo of it for you.
I used to play it - but stopped after me and the wife got married and gave up doing music for working too much. But I still have my ole guit box
