1959 Gibson Les Paul Junior Jr ...LOOK!!!!
KILLER TONE FOR THE AGES!!!
Hello and thanks for looking!
You are bidding on a refinished 1959 Gibson Les Paul Jr. No breaks ever. All original sans a few screws, even the nut and frets are original. Frets could use a light level. I bought this guitar at the Philly Guitar Show in the Fall of 2004 as you see it. This is a magnificent sounding guitar...think "Mississippi Queen" or early Humble Pie. Sweet chimey cleans all the way up to the most raucous raging dirt tones you will ever hear. Strong 8.2K Dog ear P90.
During it's life with me I have gigged and recorded with it and it always stays in my home studio which is set at 50% humidity
The headstock face and rear was simply cleared over so the original serial # is intact and the checking on the front is under the clear. I have tried to show the numerous nicks and dings the guitar has accumulated during my ownership. The dealer who sold it to me told me Lay's Guitar in Ohio refinished the guitar(supposedly it was finish stripped in the 70's like most were) but I have no proof of that. Smart on whoever did it to leave the headstock alone.
The jack plate has some cracks in it and the lower truss rod cover screw hole is stripped but not so bad a few slivers of mahogany could not fill. I have simply left that alone through the years. It will ship in a brand new TKL Les Paul case and it will be well packed and de-tuned. Please keep in mind that UPS now requires an item of this value to be brought to a hub or be given to a driver. The nearest hub for me is at least 40 minutes so I would most likely wait for a driver where I work. They are usually here every 2-3 days.
Good luck and please ask ALL questions before bidding.
