The Les Paul Jr. has arguably become the most revered student model guitar ever produced. The same simple features that made this 1st year production Jr. affordable then are the same that make it so great today. With a single P-90 pickup and an all mahogany slab body/neck construction, the no frills Les Paul Jr. produces simply great tone. Not to mention the fact that most other 1950s guitars that don the “Les Paul” silk screen are worth considerably more.
This single-cutaway 1954 Jr. features; the large ’59-style profile neck, an excellent neck angle with correspondingly low action, a Brazilian rosewood fingerboard, non-original gold speed knobs, “no-line” Kluson Deluxe tuning machines with replaced buttons, (1) dog-ear P-90 pickup, the larger- yellow center sunburst finish (as opposed to the less attractive tu-tone version with a small amount of yellow, seen in early ’54 only), a light-weight wrap-around tailpiece, one original pot.
