Welcome, you are looking at an incredible vintage example. This is the 1958 Gibson USA Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar. 24.75" scale. 1 11/16" nut width. Serial #: 6879. 7 lbs 4oz.
The Les Paul Junior Doublecut was made from just 1958-61. This Gibson is one of the late '58 '4 digit serial' guitars.
This is a tone machine.
The light weight aged mahogany body/neck makes for incredible resonance.
As you know, 50+ years ago luthiers had access to exceptional old wood stock- so this guitar has that extra something special.
The mahogany here also creates that exceptional bottom end and cutting midrange response.
Soaking up that great natural tone and adding its own character is the P-90 pickup and you've got yourself a tone machine.
The tone you 'hear' in your head when you think 'Vintage Gibson P-90'- that is the exact rich tone here!
The cleans here are incredible- a touch of clean sparkle with a full body. But roll back the tone control and you'll find a number of fantastic sounds out of the one pickup.
Add some gain and this Junior really comes alive. The P90 here is very quiet, so you can be liberal with the overdrive. Incredible.
The neck here is a .90" thick C profile- very comfortable. The 10" fretboard radius enables effortless bends while the deep cutaways and heel-less feel give you full acces to the entire length of the fingerboard. A true player.
The look here is gorgeous- vibrant cherry finish, single-ply pickguard, and beautiful strip tuners.
There are several small checks and marks(pics)- to be expected.
The headstock here was professionally repaired at some point- if you hold the guitar at an angle in light, you can see the lines where the lacquer shrunk into the lines of the repair on the headstock and side of the neck. This is a strong, and old, repair.
This Junior is a fantastic example- a truly great find.
The frets are clean- just professionally setup with action of just about 3/32" at the 12th fret low E.
This auction includes a non-original Gibson Gear hardshell case.
