1957 Gibson Les Paul Jr.

Gibson’s Les Paul Junior model was introduced in 1954 as an entry level student model electric guitar. It wasn’t until the 1970s that the Jr kicked the student model image in favor of the bare bones rock and roll screamer that it’s known to be today.

1958 Epiphone FT-79 Texan
