    1957 revisited by the Custom Shop.

    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. The Junior remained a single-cutaway guitar through 1957. In 1958, Gibson changed the Junior's body shape, adding a double-cutaway version while continuing the popular single-cutaway model.

    Like all VOS (Vintage Original Spec) Series instruments, the 1957 Les Paul Junior Single Cutaway 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.

    The Les Paul VOS 57 Junior

    By KEVIN WRIGHT

    from Prison City

    Comments about Gibson Custom 1957 Les Paul Junior Single Cutaway VOS Electric Guitar:

    Look I understand that the LP Junior is not for everybody...Ive been playing for many years and own the 57 VOS Junior.....All the players know the story behind the original 50's LPJ's so why bore ya'll....the VOS models have to be gone through...you have to play a few to find the right one for you!! But in the hands of a mighty wheeler such as the likes of Leslie West..these guitars can crush you...their made to do just that...the neck is like a baseball bat with strings and the single lone bridge P90 picup is good n greazy! They look mean and sound mean..end of story....but I got some big hamhocks so grab one if you can find one and give it a test drive and see what happens...these are the kind of guitars that either ya love em or not!! But if you wrap your mits around one and it fits then plug it in and watch what she can do....enjoy!
    Tuning is great....plays beautifully....screams like Bigfoot!

    Who writes these reviews???

    Comments about Gibson Custom 1957 Les Paul Junior Single Cutaway VOS Electric Guitar:

    Save your money and buy a more useful guitar!
    Its a slab of wood with an off the rack pup, not the real thing and even those sold for fifty bucks, in this economy I can find a much better use for the money than pretending I own the real deal! Gibson employees obviously write the reviews for the pricey stuff!
    AVERAGE ONLY
    Little value

    I LOVE this thing

    Comments about Gibson Custom 1957 Les Paul Junior Single Cutaway VOS Electric Guitar:

    Possibly one of the nicest guitars I've ever owned. It plays like a dream, sounds like a dream, and the fit and finish are just bloody wonderful. I love the sound of p-90s and this one delivers in spades. the slim neck overcomes the traditional gibson ballbat feel and with my vintage all-tube signal path helps me to recreate some of the most famous tones in rock n' roll history. Great looks, great tone, great feel, its definitely a keeper.

    This is the One

    Comments about Gibson Custom 1957 Les Paul Junior Single Cutaway VOS Electric Guitar:

    Out of all the LPs and LP Jr. Style guitars I own...all of them being real Gibson (8+ at last count); this one is up there with the best. I'd actually say it's better than my 50s Jr. The fit and finish are perfect....unlike my regular custom shop Jr. that the fret work is a total mess. This one feels great. Also the little things like the pick guard are perfect; the screws are screwed in straight. This all can't be said of the Custom Shop Jr. I have that is supposedly 500+ more expensive than this one. The sound of this one is amazing. Just what you'd expect a Jr. to sound like. Like I said about the other one, they beg to be played and make you want to play them. I'd say that this guitar might be the desert island electric. Mine is the TV White which is the coolest color ever. Love it. I want another.

    Fantastic!

    Comments about Gibson Custom 1957 Les Paul Junior Single Cutaway VOS Electric Guitar:

    My first buy from Gibsons Custom Shop. I am absolutely amazed by the quality. The finish and action is SUPERB! It was in tune when I picked it out of the box and it is still in tune after one weeks playing. This is by far the best guitar in my collection.
