Gibson / Les Paul Junior / 1959 / Cherry / Guitar
Here’s a reasonably priced, classic 1959 Gibson Les Paul Junior in cherry red, double cut away and stonking hot vintage P-90. It is a reasonable price because someone has at some point mounted two extra strap buttons (now removed) behind the upper horn and there is no original case included with it.
Its no museum piece, as there are dings, dongs and marks in a fair few places and the pots plus the cap has been replaced as you can see from the pictures.
No neck or headstock breaks, original finish in good condition with no touch ups or overspray. Original frets have some decent life left and there is one, single rut just by the cowboy index finger position behind the first fret. Nice, fairly chunky, classic 59 neck profile make this one for the player rather than a glass box collector. Oh yes.. and by the way, it sounds terrific - as you would expect :-)
Bridge is original but one of the adjustment screws has been worn down and is difficult to adjust. When it arrived, there was a MojoAx compensated on the guitar which is now in the case pocket should you want to use this.
Nice feather weight of only 3.26Kg makes this a nice and easy guitar to spend a lot of quality time with and when you plug this guitar in, that is exactly what you will be wanting to do…
