This is a vintage 1957 Les Paul Junior electric guitar. The Les Paul Junior, introduced in 1954 as an affordable, entry-level Les Paul, it quickly gained popularity with rock players because of the crunch the single P-90 offered. Since then, the Les Paul Jr. has remained popular with players and collectors alike because of their unique tone, and increasing rarity and collectibility. This particular example, serial number 7 26XX is 100% original, is in perfect working condition, and very good vintage cosmetic condition showing only expected signs of wear and use.
Features include a solid mahogany body construction in a sunburst finish, mahogany set neck with a rosewood fingerboard and pearloid dot inlays, a single original P-90 pickup, all original pots and electronics, a chrome stopbar tailpiece, Kluson Deluxe tuning machines and the original single-ply black guard.
The neck is dead straight, the action comfortable all the way up the fingerboard, and thanks to the short 24.75â scale is remarkably quick-playing. Cosmetically, this guitar is in very good vintage condition with only expected signs of wear and use. There are some dings and finish chips around the edges of the body and on the top of the headstock, as well as some light buckle rash on the back of the body. There is weather checking throughout, adding to the already huge vintage appeal of the instrument.
