This is a vintage 1958 Gibson Les Paul Junior previously owned by Melissa Etheridge. It has a Mahogany body and neck, and is armed with a killer P-90 pickup. 1958 marked the first year that Gibson made the Junior with a double cutaway body and a Cherry finish. This guitar is an excellent example from its era with its ever-rich finish and phenomenal playability.
It is all original with the exception of its strap buttons. It is in awesome cosmetic condition, with a handful of nicks and dings here and there and some light buckle rash from Melissa. Oh, right - Melissa.. How'd that happen?
Melissa played the nearby Paramount Theater here in Peekskill, NY during the beginning of her most recent tour. She stopped by the shop where she fell in love with our inventory and eventually worked out a trade for her cherished LP Jr. She was super cool and put on a great show that night, too! If you Google Image Search Melissa Etheridge, you'll see a ton of photos of her with this guitar.
It comes with a new Gibson hard shell case, but the pictured poster is not included in the sale - we're keepin' it! It has been professionally set up and is ready to rock! More photos available upon request.
