    Sometimes all you need is a 1959 Gibson Les Paul Junior…

    Born from a desire to provide a no-frills yet well constructed alternative to the company’s other offerings, the Les Paul Junior proved popular with all who appreciate the primal nature of the instrument. Introduced towards the end of 1958, the Double Cut design added better upper fret access to the neck and the cherry finish gave the guitar a fresh look for the coming decade.

    Classic pairing of mahogany and cherry finish in a killer package. The entire body has been refinished and the serial number restamped a while ago. The finish has worn, the guitar was evidently played a bit. Thankfully the decal has been retained. 

    The neck feels like a classic 1960 profile and not a chunkier '59. There is no sign of any breaks or other repairs under the refinish. The fretboard is in great condition and the original frets have plenty of life left in them. Tuners are later Kluson Double Line.

    The tortoiseshell pickguard and pickup cover are in good shape . The Knobs are reproductions. The bridge is correct and there is no sign of any repairs. 

    Electrically there has been work carried out. The tone pot is a replacement and it looks like the solder joints have been made more than once. The volume pot reads as week 36 of 1959.

    The guitar comes with a hardshell case.

    What can we say about these guitars that you don’t already know? Incredibly versatile for an instrument with so few options. The controls are very interactive, coaxing out a wide palette of tones. These guitars are incredibly popular for a reason.

    Juniors are very popular and this one will not hang around for long. Grab it whilst you still can…
