2020 Gibson Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar


This Les Paul Junior is near-new but it's built so close to the original specs (size, shape, feel-wise) of the '50s originals that it does confuse my mind a little bit playing it. The neck shape is that medium-heft C with the tighter old-fashioned radius and the appointments are all correct. I mean -- I really like this guitar. That doesn't happen too often with new-repro instruments for me.

It does help that it has just a little mild wear to it and that the lacquer has finish-cracked on the upper-bout top a bit, too, giving it a slightly-older look despite its otherwise-cleanliness.

It arrived here for consignment essentially ready to go and all I had to do was give it a few mild adjustments before it was playing spot-on and clean. The pickup is raunchy and pure P90-crank, as you'd expect, and the fit and finish throughout is good.

It comes with all sorts of goodies, too -- a plush hard case, factory photo of the instrument in completion, original sales material, and all that good stuff. There's even a truss wrench and Gibson multi-tool stuffed in there.
