The Les Paul Special was introduced as the TV Special in 1955 as an intermediate model between the regular Les Paul guitar and the lower-priced Junior and TV Junior instruments. The Special underwent two successive body redesigns in 1958 and 1961, while the Les Paul affiliation was discontinued in late 1962. The model was then renamed the SG Special without any apparent changes in the specifications other than the removal of Les Paul markings.
In 1963, Gibson shipped 374 SG Specials in Polaris White as compared to 1,017 in Cherry. However, in total, between 1962 and 1968, they shipped only 1,956 in Polaris White as compared to 16,090 in Cherry.
