She had bought her 1955 model Les Paul Junior and matching amplifier new just the year before, and had handled them very carefully, so they still looked like new. All her stuff was still in the case...and you buy it from her and bring it back to 2007...Here it is! Without a doubt the cleanest, most original, least dinged, least played, least worn Les Paul Junior of this era I've ever seen...Gorgeous Deep Full Rich Unfaded Sunburst Finish...Unworn Brazilian Rosewood Fingerboard is beautiful, an even chocolate color...frets are unworn and fresh looking with perfect play all the way up...playing action is down low and the tone is a simply unbelievable...the playing is easy because everything is still like new...at 7lbs 2oz it is extremely lightweight and lively and resonant...all hardware dead clean-new...very very expensive...if you are seeking the cleanest collector-grade Early 1955 Junior available anywhere at any price...check the pictures and email Paul at bluespm@aol.com for a bigger string of pictures showing this superb instrument...or call Paul at 401 722 5837
