Gibson Les Paul Junior Special P-90 Sunburst, 1991

Instrument Categories: , ,

Based closely on the classic Les Paul Special, the Gibson Les Paul Junior Special uses a slab body, set neck and a pair of P-90 pickups for a straight-ahead guitar.

The Les Paul Special was originally produced from late 1954 to 1959, in a form very much like this Les Paul Junior Special. The slab body and neck are Mahogany, the bound fingerboard is Rosewood. For hardware, Kluson Deluxe style tuners were used, with a pair of P-90s. On the originals, a combination stop tailpiece/bridge was used but all the reissues have installed a tune-o-matic style bridge with stop tailpiece. Wiring is typical Gibson – a pickup selector and individual volume and tone controls.

This Gibson Les Paul Junior Special dates to May 14th, 1991 and was built at the Gibson Nashville plant. It sports a traditional yellow sunburst burst nitrocellulose lacquer finish. It is in good shape, though it has clearly been used as intended and there are a few small chips around the edges and a little bit of buckle rash; the frets are moderately worn but it plays well. The neck is full width, but fairly slim in terms of profile.

A non original hard shell case is included.

Here’s what Gibson has to say about the current versions of the Les Paul Junior Special:

“The Les Paul Junior has remained a no-nonsense favorite of rock ’n’ rollers ever since its introduction way back in 1954. This single-cutaway, slab-bodied electric guitar always has had a simplicity and affordability that has appealed to punk, blues, grunge and garage rockers, along with an impressive tonal depth and purity that has landed it in the hands of players in plenty of other genres as well.

The original Junior and Special models were distinguished by their single and dual P-90s, respectively. Gibson’s original fat single-coil pickups have been favorites of countless tone-conscious players since their arrival on great Gibson archtops way back in 1946.

Now with the Les Paul Junior Special P-90, Gibson USA combines the attributes of these two affordable classics in a two-pickup guitar that is equipped to take you everywhere that the best dual-P-90-loaded guitars of the past six decades were able to go. “
