Here’s a vintage 1960 Gibson Les Paul Junior electric guitar. This particular example, serial number 0 3896, is in near mint 100% all original condition, and includes the original soft case, the original leather strap, the original instrument cable, and the original polish cloth! 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 toneâ¦ not to mention the fact that most other 1950s guitars that don the ‘Les Paul’ silk screen are worth considerably more.
