A lovely 1960 double cut LP Junior in mighty fine condition with a mighty fine sound to boot...

This product is currently on hold.

Have we ever said we love LP Juniors…? I think we have a few times but in case of any doubt, we are saying it again!

This is a lovely, 1960 version of the double cut Les Paul Junior in cool cherry red. If you prefer a slightly skinnier neck on your Juniors then the 58 or 59’s then this is the one for you.

Slightly faded, all original cherry red finish looks the part without any doubt. This guitar is set up and plays like a demon on its factory wide frets and with that 8k plus vintage P-90 so dangerously close to the strings, you will never be short of raw power, which these guitars are well known for. Did we also mention it is lightweight? Yes, it is a mere 3.18 Kg so you barely notice it slung around your neck.

They are superbly balanced too, the correct single line Kluson tuners stop it from being head heavy and the result is a brilliantly balanced machine. We tend to shy away from these that have been Grovered as the extra weight of these tuners does upset the balance of what is usually a very light guitar.

This one is all correct with correct hardware and original electrics that have un-disturbed solder. Pickup has never been rewound and is a meaty heart to these cool guitars. Frets just have a little bit of wear but still have plenty of life and it will be a very long time before a refret is required.

Finish is all original with no touch ups and is in very good condition, not mint but we have seen a lot, lot worse. Needless to say there have been no breaks or repairs anywhere on this guitar.

These are just so enjoyable to play, if you have not experienced these yet then what are you waiting for… you will not regret it!
