Since their introduction in 1954, the Gibson Les Paul Junior has been the epitome of a stripped back solid body guitar, with the focus purely on a great sound and unmatched playability. Despite the lack of tonal options, these guitars are incredibly versatile, and have found their way in to the hand of many players across a range of styles. This 1955 Gibson Les Paul Junior is a fantastic example of a Junior from this period.
Featuring a slab Mahogany body finished in a Sunburst lacquer that has aged to an almost 3 tone burst, this guitar is in excellent condition with just the right amount of wear and patina to the finish. The original dog ear P90 pickup packs a bunch and has some serious bite when you dig in with a pick. This guitar has had its wrap around bridge and bridge posts replaced at some point in its life. The electronics are original, including an original grey tiger capacitor and pots that date to the 51st week of '54. The tuners has been changed for aged Kluson equivalents, but the original tuners are included in the sale.
This guitar also includes its original case.
