This is a vintage 1960 Gibson Les Paul Junior! This particular example, 0 7770, is in extremely excellent 100% all original condition and includes the original alligator soft case, a vintage era-appropriate coil cable and even the original La Bella flatwound strings! Exceedingly clean and near mint, this is a very fine collector’s condition example. It’s light-weight, 6 lbs. 11 oz., has a screaming P-90 measured at 8.42Ω resistance, and features an incomparable ’60 profile neck with factory jumbo frets.
The Les Paul Jr. has arguably become the most revered “student” or “budget” model guitar ever produced. The simple features that made the Jr. affordable back then are the exact 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 1950’s guitars that don the ‘Les Paul’ silk screen are worth considerably more.
This particular example displays absolutely no visible playing wear. With No breaks, No cracks, No repairs, and No modifications this is an extremely intact, highly preserved, all original specimen.

This double-cutaway ’59 Gibson Les Paul Jr. features; that perfect ’60 profile mahogany neck with a superb neck angle, a mahogany slab body, a beautifully rich cherry red finish, a single dog-ear P-90 pickup, a Brazilian rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dot inlays, Kluson Deluxe tuning machines with original plastic buttons, a faux tortoise material pickguard, black bonnet knobs, and original pots with bumble-bee capacitor.
With an absolutely perfect neck profile and large original frets, this guitar plays and feels fantastic. It has one of the hottest P-90 pickups you will ever hear. It’s acoustic resonance creates incredible sustain when plugged into an amp. Issue-free, virtually unfaded, this guitar displays no significant condition flaws worth noting. Aside from very superficial weather-checking mostly on the top, this guitar looks as if it was removed a vault where it has remained for the past 5 decades.
