Here is a vintage 1955 Gibson Les Paul Junior electric guitar. This particular example, serial number 510532, is in extremely well-preserved, near mint, 100% all original condition. This no issues example is super clean with no breaks, no cracks, no repairs, and no modifications. It is amongst the nicest examples I have ever seen available.
The Gibson Les Paul Junior in TV yellow finish is, without a doubt, one of the most iconic electric guitars ever made. Early versions sometime feature a lighter, less bold, shade of TV yellow that some collectors have referred to as “fawn.” Others have noted that the finish is reminiscent of highly coveted Korina pieces from the late-1950s. And while it is definitely not a custom color by any means, it is clearly a different finish, certainly much more rare, and in my opinion, much better looking. This lighter “fawn” style TV yellow finish is highly attractive and exotic in a nicely subtle way.
This super clean example features; a single-cutaway slab maple body with an early âfawnâ yellow TV finish, (1) P-90 pickup, stop bar/roll over tailpiece, a Brazilian rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays, an inlayed pearl ‘Gibson’ logo, “no-name” single-line Kluson tuning machines, original black top hat knobs, a single-ply pickguard, and nickel plated parts.
