Very popular around these parts, this 1955 Les Paul Single cut is an almost near mint example with zero issues...

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 never seem to hang around here for long at ATB Towers…

This one is just about near mint, which is rare for these. It is all straight in every way and totally crack free, it even has no cracking at all between the bridge studs and the pickup route which on a 54/55 is almost unheard of. Action is low and guitar plays real well with no lean on the studs. Original low profile wrap around bridge is also remarkably crack free.

Have a look at all the pics in our gallery and we think you will agree that this is a very fine example indeed. There are just a few minor marks here and there but this is bordering for us, as being described as near mint. Included is quite an expensive, later, genuine Lifton Les Paul case in the croc skin style that I have never ever seen before in the UK.

Original frets are in superb shape with very little wear and fingerboard is virtually untouched. Finish is still nice and glossy which is amazing for a 64 year old guitar. It is unfaded and has pretty much zero checking. Needless to say the finish is 100% original with no touch ups, no over spray and no breaks or repairs, or cracks anywhere.

Electrics are totally original with undisturbed solder, hardware is totally correct and even the tuner tips look original. It is real nice when you get a guitar like this in where you can say it has zero issues!

Last one we had like this did not stick around for very long at all and we get asked about these on a weekly basis so if you think you may be interested in this very, very fine example, get it touch. If ya snooze, ya looze as some once said..
