We can probably all agree that a Les Paul Junior is one of those "do no wrong" guitar designs. Simple, no frills, and all about the tonal experience. This 2006 Gibson Custom Shop '57 Les Paul Junior reissue shows that even 50+ years after the first Juniors came off the production line, these student model Gibsons are still one of the most toneful and iconic electrics in history.
A slab Mahogany body paired with a Mahogany neck, single dogear P90 pickup, and wraparound tailpiece cut right to the heart of what a single-cut electric solidbody sounds like in its most primitive form. Punchy, clear, and immediate, with a distinctive growl that only this concoction seems to conjure. It's the perfect rock and roll guitar that has deceptive versatility once you get to know it.
Condition: Excellent. A very clean example of an early Custom Shop Junior. Very light play wear with some light surface pick wear adjacent to the pickup surround. Light surface wear on the back of the guitar.
Priced with original hardshell case.
