    It was a great little guitar back then and it still is today.

    The Les Paul Junior, introduced in 1954, was the economy Les Paul model. With its no-nonsense look, a single P-90 pickup, and a price of $49.50 it was an instant hit. In 1958, Gibson changed the Junior's body shape to a double cutaway.

    Like all VOS (Vintage Original Spec) Series instruments, the 1958 Les Paul Junior VOS is handcrafted for comfort and playability in the Gibson Custom Shop. The construction, neck profile, hardware, and electronics are period accurate, and a special nitrocellulose finish treatment gives it the patina of a gently aged vintage guitar. Includes Gibson Custom Shop case and a certificate of authenticity.

    Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.

    I got an original

    Comments about Gibson Custom 1958 Les Paul Junior Double Cutaway VOS Electric Guitar:

    I bought one back in 1974 from a guy who found it in a land fill...can you believe it! Was still in good shape...the origial pickguard is tortoise shell which is cool...serial number indicates it was made in 1960...I paid $100 for it....I had to replace the tuners, added grovers and at the time I replaced the p/u with a Deluxe Les Paul p/u, the mini HB....I have since replaced that with a Dimarzio P90 and the thing now sounds like I believe it was meant to....one piece mahogany w/one piece mahagony set neck...this neck is slim and fast....I will admit, for those that can afford the remake, its a sweet guitar.

    Rock'n'Roll monster

    Comments about Gibson Custom 1958 Les Paul Junior Double Cutaway VOS Electric Guitar:

    What more do you need? A nasty sounding P90 one volume, one tone control, a beefy neck put them together and you've got a rock'n'roll monster. Because of it's simplicity it's down to you the player to get the tones out of it that are hidden within. I get more comments about my tone/ sound with this guitar than any of my other guitars which include strats and PRS. A bit overpriced but if you spring for one you will not be sorry.

    Killer

    Comments about Gibson Custom 1958 Les Paul Junior Double Cutaway VOS Electric Guitar:

    I am a big fan of the single cut-away les paul juniors...but as soon as I got this guitar, it was love at first sight! The finish on this thing is absolutly beautiful...its light, and if its played through a marshall 100watt super lead, it is a match to the sound of greenday!!! The single coil p-90 in this thing sings like a bird. It has CTS pots and a bumblebee capacitor, in other words it is the sound of the vintage juniors. This is a custom shop guitar, so that means you are not getting a piece of junk. this is a great guitar for any true gibson fan!

    Comments about Gibson Custom 1958 Les Paul Junior Double Cutaway VOS Electric Guitar:

    One of these 'REAL' ones. It's a VOS and it's like the original ones with the 50's baseball bat neck. The TV yellow looks more like a lime green than the mustard yellow. It's a rocker! I've had all of the reissues and they didn't quite cut it. This is the real thing!
