    1961 Gibson Les Paul/SG junior in Cherry? Oh yes please..

    What first strikes you about it is the vibrancy of the colour. The body is in exquisite shape with only very minor marks on it. Both front and back look stunning with no fade to speak of. 

    The neck shows a few minor signs of use and there are a few very small marks but the lacquer hasn’t worn down and still retains its lustrous shine. The fretboard and original frets show no signs of wear and are in exceptional condition.

    The plastics are in great shape. The pick guard has warped a little towards the lower end but is crack free, as is the pickup cover.

    The hardware is tarnished but is in good order. 

    Electrically everything looks to be correct and untouched. In fact I think we can say this is 100% original but what about those knobs? True, they are usually seen on earlier Les Pauls but they are original black bonnet knobs and look as if they have been on site eternity. We have seen one or two early 60's with these knobs so we are not ruling out they have been replaced.

    The guitar comes with its correct Gibson black Tolex, orange lining SG fitted hardshell case.

    This guitar really sings. The P90 is fantastic and the lighter body gives the tone a little more air when compared to an earlier Junior. The controls are very responsive and the neck is comfortable to play. The Tremotone does work and with careful setup should stay reasonably in tune. If you're lucky.

    Sometimes all you need is a Junior and a dimed amp. Grab this and lets go…
