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

Sorry, this item was sold out.

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

This is a lovely, 1960 version of the double cut Les Paul Junior in cool cherry red. However, being an early example from that year it has all the 59 appointments, including that classic 59 neck that we all know and love.

The slightly faded, all original cherry red finish looks the part without a doubt. This guitar is set up and plays great 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 just how little this thing weighs? At a mere 2.94 Kg you’ll barely notice it slung over your neck!

Its a superbly balanced guitar too, the correct single line Kluson tuners stop it from being head heavy and the result is a brilliantly balanced machine.

This one is all correct with correct hardware and original electrics that have un-disturbed solder. The Pickup has never been rewound and is the meaty heart to these awesome 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. There is a selection of small dings and marks down the back of the neck but that really is the worst of it! 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 guitars are just so much fun to play, if you haven’t experienced the joy of a Junior yet then what are you waiting for… you won’t regret it!
