Gibson 1956 Les Paul Junior Sunburst
This 1956 Gibson Les Paul Junior is about as cool as it gets. Introduced in 1954, the Junior was intended to be a student model in comparison to the much gaudier, much more appointed Standard and Custom models, with a single slab mahogany body, no binding, and a single P90 pickup. Since the advent of rock and roll, these understated little monsters quickly made a name for themselves as clear, articulate, blazing rock machines, with a surprising amount of versatility for a single pickup guitar.
This particular example has the original sunburst finish and is surprisingly clean, with minor checking and a few dings.
Along with a singular repair on the treble bridge post to fix some cracked/missing wood, this guitar is original and has stood the test of time.
- No breaks!
- Treble bridge post area has been repaired
- Weight 7.35 lbs.
Serial #611680. Comes with original chipboard case.
