Lovely lovely example, she's a Featherweight Beautiful Vintage 1955 Gibson Les Paul Junior. Super clean Excellent minus 100% original condition and every atom (save one screw, see below!) as she came from 225 Parsons street in Kalamazoo Michigan 60 years ago. This beautiful sunburst guitar has that special tone sound, thick-necked playability, and is so light and resonant with that super solid feeling of perfectly weighted unified oneness of purpose, structure, tone and feel.
Characteristic very light finish checking,chipping,and edge rub on the body but nothing major and very nice overall. Sunburst is vibrant and unfaded and she has a nice dark stain on the body neck, and peghead back. Very limited and light play and the neck, Brazilian fretboard, and frets near pristine. Peghead is lovely with original buttons.
Serial is 5 5389 and there is one screw close to the heel that fills the hole left by a strap button install and my thought was to leave that up to the new owner to fill, plug, or ignore as you wish.
Hyperbole on, at 5 Lbs. 15 ozs. this is one of the lightest Les Paul Juniors ever seen and may even hold some sort of featherweight award for the lightest one ever discovered! Maybe it's that fine Colorado air that has done such a fine job of air drying what was wrought back in humid old Michigan. In any case the lightweight solidity and resonance of these two pieces of Hamogany (sic) exists as a unified whole that just plays and resonates like crazy and the P-90 roars. Many poems and sonnets have been written about these and this example will serve to bring eloquence and rock n' roll to her new owner!
