    Gibson

    A stripped-down classic rocker with an edgy tone.

    Introduced in '55 as an affordable alternative to the Les Paul's carved-top luxury, the Gibson Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar -- a one-pickup, flattop cruisin' machine -- caught on quickly and climbed right into guitar legend. The set neck and compensated wraparound bridge/tailpiece provide solid intonation and vibrant resonance. The single dog-ear P-90 pickup dishes out single-coil high definition with added punch-- beautiful electric guitar tone through a lightly or heavily pushed amp. Rosewood fretboard with 22 frets and dot inlays. Mahogany body and neck. Chrome hardware.

    Features
    • Mahogany neck and body
    • Rosewood 22-fret fingerboard
    • P-90 pickup
    • Compensated wraparound bridge

    Oh my gosh where do I even begin? This is the absolute best guitar I have ever used. Before this I used a Jackson Charvelle and it was time for an upgrade, so I went to get a new guitar, I had my eye on a Surf Green strat, but when I got to the store it was already bought. I saw this odd yellowed color guitar on the wall, and I thought WOW! I don't think they make these anymore, and I got my hands on a limited edition TV yellow les paul jr used. It was used and was still kicking a brand new fender strats butt. Bottom line is this is an amazing guitar!!!

    This is my first Gibson purchase and honestly, I'm feeling a little let down. Don't get me wrong this guitar sounds fine and is reasonably well constructed. Just for the price it could be better built. The hardware is average, but that can be replaced/upgraded. The nitro finish is nice but the back is painted solid black presumably to hide the 3 piece body like the one that came on mine. Its solid, just 3 laminated pieces of solid wood not 1. Further the paint on the back of the neck is a bit thick and gets sticky when you play it. Fit and finish could have been better too, as mine came with a filthy dried out fretboard. Again, nothing I can't remedy, But, I should'nt have to on a guitar this price bearing the Gibson name. All in all, I'll be keeping it but its a bit of a bummer to have to spend more on hardware upgrades and a hard case (it comes with a gig bag. Fender guitars I'd carry in a gig bag but, not Gibsons with their somewhat fragile necks). Bottom line, it sounds nice, but quality control needs some work.

    Comments about Gibson Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

    If your a musician on a very tight budget and want a Gibson LP jr. then go for it but its not the best, so basically what you pay for is what you get. The quality of the guitar isn't amazing, you can tell that Gibson hid what they did with the body in the back by painting over it...not great. it sounds decent, if you hate hum though, don't get this guitar because it hums like CRAZY. The P-90 sounds kind of cheap compared to the more costy ones. I would suggest saving up for Billie's signature because it is just as good as a real LP junior, but with an H-90 hum-canceling pickup that sounds just like a P-90. It is also the cheapest, but very very high quality, LP Junior on the market. So, if you want this guitar, make sure you know what your buying first

    1 pickup + 1 volume + 1 tone = all you need.

    By Tay-Tay

    from Wisconsin

    Comments about Gibson Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

    This guitar is pretty bare-bones, it only has one single-coil pickup, one volume knob, and one tone knob. But I like that, because that's all you really need. This guitar sounds awesome with distortion, and it also sounds good clean, too. Plus, it looks cool if you're into minimalism like me. Get this guitar instead of paying way more for a different Les Paul, and only getting one more pickup and a carved body to show for it.

    Comments about Gibson Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

    I am a converted p-90 nut, and have in the past few years turned onto the exciting tonal possibilities that P-90s bring. I own strats and les pauls and I must say that this and my les paul faded double cut (also with p-90s) out play them all.I feel bad for the guy before me whos guitar came in such poor condition because mine was in excellent condition. Not so much as a blemish. The P-90s do come with hum. They ARE noisy pickups. I don't mean that the buzz will even so much as be a slight factor when you are playing but if you have the volume up and you are not playing, noise will come out of the amp. I think its ridiculous when people complain about this, its just the nature of the pickup so do your research! A simple solution to the noise - if you are not playing, turn the volume off... problem solved.I highly recommend this guitar to anyone who wants that good, punchy P-90 sound. You won't regret it!

    Ive had this guitar for 5 years and its still one of my main guitars, I have played many gigs with is, never had a problem with it, lucky for me I bought it already set up. Its second only to my original 1957 version :)

    Great Junior for a great price

    By JuniorLover1957

    from Bellville, Tx

    Comments about Gibson Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

    This junior was one of my starter guitars. i Am very impressed with the sound that comes from the p-90 single coil pickup. THis guitar is hand built in the U S A, So if you are looking for a great Gibson for a small price, i recommend this junior.

    Comments about Gibson Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

    First the bad. The first one I ordered arrived with no packing in the box and a broken headstock. The second one is poorly finished and has a small ding near the control cavity. The tuners are crappy. The gig bag is nice, but it's still just a bag. The Vintage Mahogany is a much better value with a hard case and $250 worth of Burstbucker Pro's included. The good news? Some of the old Junior mojo is still alive in this plank. The neck is really nice; as nice as any new Gibson. And the thing sounds great. It even sounds great at high gain settings, something the punk guys have known for years. If you're looking for a good value, this ain't it. But if you're looking for something cool and different and a little wierd, buy one. Just make sure they pack it right.

    2 PIECE BODY

    Comments about Gibson Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

    I got mine and its a TWO piece body. I also have 2 Historics, and a 50's original. The Historics use better grade wood so they tend to be deeper sounding. My 1950's vintage Junior tends to sound bright because the wood and paint has dried out on them over the last 5 decades. I think the USA model sounds closer to the vintage. The historic is more like what the originals sounded like when they were new. So its really a matter of taste, which sounds best. But they are all good.

    Great Guitar

    from PORTLAND, OR

    Comments about Gibson Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

    I've played them all big and small,old and new,custom and used.Guess what; this is one great little axe for the money. I played the spec and the armstrong version but I have to tell you this little guy plays better! Hell maybe I just got lucky, luck isn't a reality, fate is. I think this is money well spent, mine was/is great out of the box. Gibson u.s.a.!

    Great tone right out of the box

    By Straker Studios

    from Bakersfield, CA

    Comments about Gibson Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

    This is a great little guitar for the money. I was able to get great tone right out of the box. However, there were some minor imperfections in the finish. This made me drop the quality rating down a notch. Also, even though it sounded good the intonation was off drastically. If you don't know how to do this I would recommend paying someone to do it for you. This is definitely a step up from my Epi les paul junior.
