Not a top end Gibson but its from the famed golden age. Scroll down to see how much it sold for. Here's the blurb from the seller.
VTG 1957 Gibson Les Paul Junior LP JR Electric Guitar
Original & Clean - Factory Black Stinger - Great Junior
Here we have a very nice vintage 1957 Gibson Les Paul Junior, serial # 7 4631 in yellow ink. The guitar has a unique factory black "stinger" on the back of the headstock. Stingers were often seen on higher end jazz guitars but occasionally found their way onto other models. I did put the guitar under a blacklight and there were no inconsistencies or evidence of any repair or refinish, I am very confident this feature is original to the guitar.
The rest of the guitar is in great shape, the body and neck both have very light play wear most of which is barely visible. All of the hardware and electronics on the guitar are original with the exception of some newer Kluson Deluxe tuners, the originals are included and could be put back on the guitar, they will need new buttons. The guitar has a solid C shaped neck that is perfectly straight. The frets and fretboard are both clean with very light wear. The guitar sounds and plays great, I forget how fun these little Jr's are.
The width at the nut is 1 11/16" inches. The guitar comes with the original brown reptile chipcase, which is in good shape other than some wear on the interior of the case.
