Gibson Les Paul Junior 1954 - 1959 #gibsonguitars





1956 Gibson Les Paul Jr. owned by Jeff Tweedy of Wilco | Reverb

Starting in 1954, Gibson offered players a simple, affordable take on the Les Paul dubbed the Les Paul Junior. This bare-bones solidbody featured one dog-eared P-90 pickup, a stud-mounted bridge, an unbound Rosewood fingerboard, and slab Mahogany body (though some early examples which can also be seen here used a 2-piece maple body). Because of its lower-end production quality, many early Les Paul Juniors have been the subject of major repairs or refinishes. Unaltered original Les Paul Juniors, however, are much more appealing to collectors. Notable Players: John Lennon, Billie Joe Armstrong, Johnny Thunders
