A beautiful Gibson Custom Shop VOS creation. It’s a correct Reissue of the 1957 Gibson Les Paul Junior. Its in incredible excellent shape and has the original COA, Gibson Deluxe Hard Shell Case, and other case candy!

This guitar is incredible. Only some pick scratches on the pickguard. The frets look unplayed and the Sunburst finish is just beautiful. Nice thick 1950’s Neck on this one and the Gibson P90 does not disappoint. Very full and thick that sound just great!

All I did was clean it up. The set up and strings are fresh so its ready to go..

Heres some info on these cool guitars from Gibson…

History

In 1955, the competition to develop and market solid body electric guitars that were both affordable and professionally built was heating up. Just three years earlier, Gibson had introduced the incredible Les Paul model with a $249.50 price tag (including case), yet increased competition was triggering the exploration into new directions that would eventually yield a wide variety of new and innovative Gibson products at various price points. Among those new products was the Les Paul Junior single cutaway model in 1955—a stripped-down, affordable alternative to the more expensive Les Paul model.

It was given a dark brown color around the guitar’s edge, with a golden sunburst shading in the middle of the body. This finish would eventually become known as Vintage Sunburst. At $99.50—or $149 with a Gibson amplifier bearing the same name—the Les Paul Junior single cutaway, with its lightweight slab mahogany body and single Gibson P-90 pickup, quickly became Gibson’s most popular model, outselling the ES-125 by 142 units in 1955 and peaking at 2,959 units shipped in 1957. It would continue its reign as Gibson’s best selling model until 1960. Built primarily as a “student” model, and later redesigned, the Les Paul Junior of the mid 1950s became the instrument of choice for such legends of the late ’60s and ’70s as Leslie West, Steve Marriott, Keith Richards, Mick Ralphs, Mick Jones, and Paul Westerberg.

 

Near-perfect Recreation

Gibson Custom’s 1957 Les Paul Junior Single Cutaway is a meticulous reproduction of this classic Gibson model at the height of its popularity, faithfully capturing every detail and intensity of the original. Every period-correct feature is there—24 ¾-inch scale length mahogany neck that meets the body at the 16th fret, long neck tenon, 22-fret rosewood fingerboard, pearloid dot inlays, Gibson’s traditional ’50s rounded neck profile, CTS potentiometers, bumble bee capacitors, white-button tuners, and lightweight wraparound tailpiece. It is available in Vintage Sunburst, TV Yellow, Faded Cherry and TV White finishes – in either V.O.S. or Gloss – and comes with the standard Gibson Custom Shop case and certificate of authenticity.

This is the full 24.75 inch scale neck on this one. Not the short scale. Great action that’s a pleasure to play with low playing easy playing action. No sore fingers with this cool guitar. Nut measures 1 11/16th inch and the guitar weighs only 7 lbs 9 ozs.

The Case candy includes the Gibson Custom Shop Certificate of Authenticity in the Hard Case and the Gibson Gold Warranty folder that has the Pre-Pace Checklist and serial number that matches this guitar, Gibson Reissue Strings Hang Tag, Gibson Historic Collection Hang Tag, Gibson Custom Hang Tag, Gibson Pick, and the Case key. Everything that came with this cool in 2010 is included.

The Gibson Deluxe Hard Shell Case is as nice as the guitar. Emblazed with Gibson Custom Shop on the top, beautiful quilted Burgandy Plush interior that highlites the Guitars Sunburst finish and includes the Case Key. What a great case for this beautiful Guitar!

This guitar is fantastic, but sold as-is no returns as its used. However, I have been hand picking my customers instruments for over 18 years now and they all loved the guitars I found them. This cool Gibson will certainly not be an exception.

Thanks for checking out our cool guitars.
