1959 Gibson Les Paul Junior – Sunburst
We present an original 1959 Gibson Les Paul Junior in Sunburst. Made in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
Overall, this Gibson Les Paul Junior is in extremely clean condition with minor play-wear. The original Sunburst finish is vibrant and clean, still retaining that red layer, that wonderfully contrasting the natural finish on the back with beautiful tiny finish checking. The original frets are in great shape and there are plenty of life left in them. It even comes complete with the original hang tags.
This Gibson is all original except for new white tuner buttons because the original buttons shrunk over time.
A Gibson Singlecut mahagony body with 1-piece mahagony neck is just a great combination. Gorgeous rosewood fretboard with dot inlays. This guitar has a nice big neck profile that is a joy to play. Strong P-90 “Dog ear” singlecoil pickup sounds fantastic. Black singlelayer pickguard, Aluminum lightweight wrab-over tailpiece. The original Kluson tuners are still in working order and turns perfect.
The single cutaway Junior models from 1957-1958 benefit from an improved bridge position as compared to earlier models that suffer from leaning bridges as a result of placement/shallow bridge studs.
The pickup and the electronics/wiring remains untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickup. All original and correct.
Comes with its original Alligator chipboard case. Latches and handle are in perfect working order.
