Near Mint 1956 TV Junior that is lightweight, powerful, no issues and really does look the part...

Sorry, this item was sold out.

Let it be known we love these guitars. There is something quite magical about the combination of the searing hot, vintage P-90 pickup, mounted what appears to be frighteningly close to the strings, on a lightweight mahogany body and finished in this sublime blond, straw like, limed mahogany TV finish that you only get on this (1956ish) period.

This particular example of this superb guitar is near mint too. In fact the nickel is still almost chrome like, bright and there are just a few small dings here and there that would prevent me from describing it as totally mint. Have a look at the photos and you will see what I am talking about. I think it is one of the cleanest we have had for some time…

Needless to say it is 100% correct in every way. I cannot see a thing out of place and even the original frets are still almost as new with no wear at all on the highly figured fingerboard. There are no repairs or finish issues anywhere at all.

Included is a very nice condition alligator style soft case that for this period is in also very nice condition.

Everyone should have at least one Junior in their collection, or playing arsenal and if you are going to have one, this could easily be the one…
