1955 Gibson Les Paul Junior + OHSC - Near MINT

Gibson |  1955lpjr8

Probably one of THE cleanest 1955 Les Paul Juniors we have had here. All original of course, with hardware gleaming almost like new... Unreal... and nice light weight too.

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, just about near MINT, unfaded 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 red layer, that wonderfully contrasting the natural finish on the back. There are a few minor dings but nothing serious, the lustrous sheen of a new instrument preserved and it is one of the nicest ‘55’s we have had through here recently. The neck still retains that glossy finish, the beautifully dark mahogany grain showcased beautifully here. The fretboard and frets show no signs of wear.

The plastics, as you’d imagine, are also 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 of this era.

The guitar comes with the original croc skin cardboard case, which while not being the most secure or safest of cases is a great addition to the originality of the instrument.

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.
