The simple, no-nonsense Les Paul Junior has long been a favorite for everything from down and dirty rock and roll, to meanstreet blues, to raw garage punk. With a light all-mahogany body and one roaring P-90 pickup, this guitar is totally down to business, while surprisingly versatile. This Gibson USA Les Paul Junior comes in a Tobacco Burst— genuine nitrocellulose lacquer and hand buffed to a high gloss. Simple, screaming, superbly playable and undeniably hip, the Les Paul Junior has been a force to be reckoned with since 1954, and it’s still a powerhouse here in the 21st century.
Just like the first Junior to roll off the line in Kalamazoo 57 years ago, the Les Paul Junior from Gibson USA is made from choice solid mahogany. An archetypal tonewood used in countless classic Gibson electric guitars, mahogany has a sonic depth and richness that can’t be beat, yet always remains clear and articulate. The guitar’s neck is also made from solid mahogany cut to the superior quarter-sawn orientation, carved to the fast yet comfortable SlimTaper™ profile, and glued into the body with the time-tested mortise & tenon joint that promotes resonance and sustain. It carries a baked maple fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets and a 12-inch radius for easy, choke-free bending. A PLEK-cut Corian nut ensures precise intonation while enhancing sustain, which is further aided by Gibson’s traditional 17-degree back-angled headstock, silkscreened with the gold Gibson logo and “LP Model,” just like the originals.
The heart of the Les Paul Junior has always been found in its hot, raw P-90 pickup, and this guitar is no different. This accurate reproduction of Gibson’s favorite single-coil pickup is wound with 42-AWG wire and employs a pair of genuine Alnico V bar magnets for a sound that is equally as smooth as it is snarly, with characteristic P-90 edge and bite to cut through any mix. Hardware includes a “lightning bar” wraparound tailpiece with raised compensated saddle ridge for improved intonation and vintage-style tuners with white plastic buttons retain the retro styling up at the headstock. The Les Paul Junior comes protected in a padded Gibson gig bag.
