A Junior at a bargain price that is ready to blow away the competition...

This product is currently on hold.

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 very nice indeed. The yellow section of the burst has been refinished and blended into the original finish following a bridge post repair (a common fault with these early examples). Under UV light its clear that this does not extend to the outer edges of the burst as they retain a dark finish that you can see also on the back. There are a few minor dings elsewhere but nothing serious.

The neck has a few minor knocks but again still retains that glossy finish, the mahogany grain showcased beautifully here. The fretboard and frets are in excellent shape and it has been refretted with slightly larger then what was on there before.

The plastics, as you’d imagine, are in great shape and the electronics are untouched. Action is nice and low with no bridge leaning following its visit to the tech who replaced the studs and anchors with longer types.

The guitar comes with a hardshell case that is non original, sadly far to many of the croc skin original cardboard cases have now disintegrated. Tuners are correct Kluson no line types which have had their buttons replaced.

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 and has a healthy pickup output that takes you a bit by surprise.

Neck is nice and chunky and guitar is totally ready to rock and blow you away..

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.
