1960 'Double-Cut' Les Paul Junior.
1960 Gibson Les Paul Junior.
This super light guitar weighs just 6.90 lbs. and has a solid mahogany body with rounded edges. One-piece mahogany neck with and a nut width of just over 1 11/16 inches, a standard Gibson scale length of 24 3/4 inches and a typical thin-to-medium profile. Brazilian rosewood fretboard with 22 original jumbo frets and inlaid pearl dot position markers. Headstock with "Gibson" logo and "Les Paul / Junior" silk-screened in gold. Black plastic bell-shaped truss-rod cover with two screws. Closed-back single-line Kluson Deluxe strip tuners with white plastic oval buttons. Serial number inked-on in black on the back of the headstock. One super hot black P-90 pickup with a blistering output of 8.51k. Black plastic pickup cover stamped on the underside "UC - 450 - 1 / 2". Single-ply 'tortoiseshell' plastic (0.08 inches thick) pickguard with four screws. Two controls (one volume, one tone) on the lower treble bout. Black plastic bell-shaped "Bell" knobs. The potentiometers are stamped "134 6005" (Centralab, February 1960) and the capacitor is the requisite 'Bumble-Bee' type. Combination "wrap-over" bar bridge/stud tailpiece. There is a 4 1/2 x 1/16th inch scratch on the back of the neck behind the 4th to the 8th frets. There is some fine finish checking and the body and neck are slightly and uniformly faded. There is a tiny amount of belt buckle 'scarring' on the back of the guitar - but nothing actually through the finish. There are a few very small and insignificant 'dings' on the top and the sides of the body. This incredible fifty-three year old guitar is in exceptionally fine (9.00) condition. The original 'jumbo' frets show just a miniscule amount of playing wear, the fretboard shows almost no wear. One of the best sounding 1960 'Double-Cut' Les Paul Juniors that we have ever handled. Housed in the original Gibson brown 'Aligator' softshell case with brown felt lining (7.50). (#1711).
