Gibson Les Paul Junior in factory Cherry finish made in 1959 with original alligator chipboard case. This classic guitar features a solid one-piece Honduran mahogany body, one-piece Honduran mahogany neck and a Brazilian rosewood fingerboard. Equipped with the original Gibson Dog-Ear P-90 Single-Coil pickup with clean bobbin, original windings & pickup cover controlled by a master volume and master tone control. The 24.75″ scale length neck has the iconic Gibson ’59 neck neck profile and was re-fretted roughly 10 years ago with medium jumbo frets that have plenty of life left and plays flawlessly. The original hardware is comprised of Kluson Deluxe single-line tuning machines, lightweight aluminum wraparound bridge & tailpiece, black bonnet knobs with a tortoise nitrate celluloid pickguard, and a hand made bone nut.

The original nitro lacquer Cherry finish is complete with no re-finishing or over-spray. The inked on serial number is clearly visible on the back of the headstock dating to 1959 along with the gold silkscreen Gibson logo and “Les Paul Junior” script text on the front of the headstock. The original central lab pot codes date to the 44th week of 1958 with the original solder joints still intact along with bumble bee caps. This guitar is in good condition for it’s age although there is a fair amount of dings, dents, scratches, chips, and a re-fret. There is evidence of a small neck repair mid-way down the back of the neck near the 12th fret which was fixed without the need for over-spray or any finish work which you can see under a black light. All of the original hardware still functions as it should. The original input jack-plate was broken and has been replaced with a plate taken from a Gibson Les Paul Jr. from the 80’s that is a great fit and aged similarly to the rest of the original hardware.

Guitar is freshly setup and restrung with 10-46 strings and includes original alligator chipboard case. Aftermarket hardshell cases or flight cases are available for purchase and shipping safely upon request.
