1959 Gibson Les Paul Junior (consignment) SOLD

Comments It’s not often we see guitars as clean as this 1959 Gibson Les Paul Junior. This guitar is in very good condition, with a few small marks on the top and back, but very little play wear.

This fine example of the one-pickup, double cutaway body sports a cherry red finish; many of these instruments had the ‘TV White’ finish, which was intended to show up better on black and white television sets. The third available finish was a sunburst, and a very few were made with black finishes.

The Gibson Les Paul Junior was introduced in 1954 to provide a high-quality, low cost guitar. Originally, it used the single cutaway body design of the Les Paul and the double cutaway model appeared in 1958. In 1961, the body design changed again, to what was finally called the SG Junior.
