We love these. In fact we love almost all juniors - the TV finish Juniors are especially cool in our opinion and this one pretty much ticks all the boxes unless you are looking for a museum piece...

Sorry, this item was sold out.

1956 all correct, Gibson Les Paul TV Junior. Not mint, but I have seen a lot worse. As you can see from the pics it has been played and this is for a very good reason - you will find this out as soon as you pick it up, strap it on and plug it in…

All original TV yellow finish with some forearm wear on the front, a bit of wear on the back and some playing wear on the neck. All solid as a rock, no structural issues, no breaks, repairs or finish issues. No overspray or touch ups.

Original electrics and correct hardware and even has the correct soft shell case that to be honest has seen better days but at least it is there and correct. Do not take this guitar on the road in this case though!

Classic 1956 chunky neck profile and a scorching hot vintage P-90 pickup make this a lean mean tone machine with power enough for most.

Original tuner buttons have shrunk a bit as you can see from the pics but seem stable right now and work just fine. Fingerboard does have some small rutting down at the lower registers and there is some fret wear. Whether it needs a re-fret out not is a matter of personal opinion. I have a few customers who would be fine with the wear on it right now, I also have a few customers who would need to have it re-fretted straight away.

As with most good Juniors the soul of the guitar is that amazing vintage P-90 that is so close to the strings it cannot fail to deliver anything but the best.

A very cool piece that could make you look and sound cool too…!
