• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

This vintage 1958 Gibson Les Paul TV Model came in from the family of its original owner out of Little Rock, AR. It shipped from Gibson in Kalamazoo, MI on January 29th, 1958 to the Jenkins Music Company according to Gibson's shipment ledger. It's sold now but I will not easily forget this one! The Gibson Shipment Totals 1937-1979 book indicates that more than triple the Les Paul Juniors shipped from Gibson in the 1950s than TV Models did.

I'm always looking for great examples of 1950s Gibson Les Paul TV Models. You can contact me here to sell a Gibson guitar or get help with Gibson guitar dating here: how to date Gibson Les Paul guitars.

Thank you! I check the Gibson Shipment Totals 1937-1979 book to see exactly how many Les Paul TVs shipped in 1958: 429. I imagine that many of those were double cuts as well. Les Paul Juniors shipped in 1958: 2,408.
