The first single cut Les Paul Junior we have had here for some time. This one is a no issues, 1955 with good posts, low action and a sound to die for...

Sorry, this item was sold out.

A defining voice in Rock n Roll history, these classic single cut Les Paul Juniors are always popular with our customers and this superb, light weight example is unlikely to stick around long…

I think you’d agree that this guitar is quite something. The colour of sunburst is vibrant, still retaining that two tone classic look, that wonderfully contrasting the natural finish on the back. There are a few minor dings but nothing serious, the lustrous sheen of a classic vintage instrument preserved. The neck has a few minor knocks but again still retains that glossy finish, the mahogany grain showcased beautifully here. The fretboard and original frets show very little signs of wear. There is still plenty of life left in them.

The plastics, as you’d imagine, are a in great shape and the electronics are untouched. In addition, there is no sign that any work has been carried out on the bridge which can sometimes be the case with juniors. The posts are stable, there is no cracking and the intonation is excellent, in fact one of the better ones we have had here!

The guitar comes with a hardshell case that is non original, sadly far to many of the croc skin original cardboard cases have now disntergrated.

As those of you who have played these guitars will testify, there is a certain gravitas to the tone of these instruments. Paired with the right amp, it will make you question why you need any other guitar. The controls are very responsive offering a wide palette of sonic options. This is a great sounding junior.

Everyone should try a Junior and this one should not be passed over. Looks and tone is always a winning combination at ATB Guitars, so grab this one whilst you can.
