Gibson / Les Paul Junior / 1960 / Cherry / Guitar For Sale
Sometimes its just three chords and a 1960 Gibson Les Paul Junior…
Born from a desire to provide a no-frills yet well constructed alternative to the company’s other offerings, the Les Paul Junior proved popular with all who appreciate the primal nature of the instrument. Introduced towards the end of 1958, the Double Cut design added better upper fret access to the neck and the cherry finish gave the guitar a fresh look for the coming decade.
Classic pairing of mahogany and cherry finish in a killer package. The top has faded a little and there are a fair few bumps and scraps all over the body. The finish has checked beautifully, giving this guitar a classic look.
The neck has that classic 60 profile with a slim yet not skinny feel in the hand. There is very little wear on the back of the neck and no signs of any breaks. The fretboard is in great condition and the original frets have plenty of life left in them.. Tuners look to be correct. The decal is still strong and there looks to have been other tuners fitted at some stage.
Included is the correct soft 'gator case which is becoming increasingly difficult to find and the receipt from Matt Uminov Guitars from when the last owner bought this on 2005.
The tortoiseshell pickguard and pickup cover are in great shape as are the knobs. The bridge is correct and there is no sign of any repairs. The bridge studs are later chrome plated versions.
Electrically everything is correct. The solder joints look to be undisturbed. The pickup looks to have escaped any issues.
What can we say about these guitars that you don’t already know? Incredibly versatile for an instrument with so few options. The controls are very interactive, coaxing out a wide palette of tones. These guitars are incredibly popular for a reason.
Juniors are very popular and this one will not hang around for long. Grab it whilst you still can…
