OVERVIEW

The choice of numerous rock legends, the LP Jr. embodies the pure simplicity of rock 'n' roll.

Today's Gibson Les Paul Junior electric guitar captures many of the same details and intensity as the original, including a 24-3/4" scale length mahogany neck that meets the body at the 16th fret, a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard, Gibson's traditional rounded-neck profile, a wraparound bridge/tailpiece, and a single Gibson P-90 pickup that faithfully delivers all the power and punch expected from their single-coil pickup. Includes all chrome hardware, acrylic dot inlays, Gibson's silk-screened logo on the headstock, and a Corian pre-radiused nut. The Les Paul Junior comes with a plush Gibson gig bag.

Gibson's legendary P-90 guitar pickup
The P-90, introduced in the early 1950s, is Gibson's truly hallowed single-coil pickup and offers the soulful, classic tone that only a P-90 can. Delivering more warmth than a standard single-coil pickup, with higher output and sweet treble response, the P-90 continues to be one of the most popular pickups today, offering a distinct and powerful tone that remains unmatched in the face of relentless impersonation.

As the competition to develop and market affordable and professional built solidbody electric guitars was heating up in the mid 1950s, Gibson branched out into new directions that would yield a wide variety of innovative Gibson products at various price points. Among these new products was their Les Paul Junior single cutaway model, which quickly became Gibson's best-selling model and the instrument of choice for such legends as Leslie West, Steve Marriot, Keith Richards, Mick Ralphs, Mick Jones, Billie Joe Armstrong and Paul Westerberg.

Having played Fenders almost exclusively for the 13 years I've played guitar, I wanted to branch out in terms of tone and had been thinking of going the Gibson route for quite some time. While I've always admired the "Gibson sound," I could never justify the price tag that most Gibsons come with. With that in mind, the Junior quickly became a contender, not only because of its more modest price tag, but also because of its straightforwardness in terms function and sound, which I discovered after playing a couple of different Juniors, including a vintage Junior from 1956. In terms of playability, the Junior is relatively comfortable. Coming from the Fender camp, I definitely noticed the shorter scale length almost immediately. The neck plays fast but still retains a bit of heft compliments of its "50s" style profile. The action is surprisingly low, especially considering the Junior's wraparound bridge. All in all, the guitar felt comfortable as soon as I picked it up. There wasn't much of an adjustment period, which was a big selling point for me.In terms of tone, the Junior more or less has one sound that it does extremely well. Between the mahogany body and the P-90 single coil pickup, the Junior has a creamy, "middy" tone you expect to hear from a Gibson. As another reviewer noted, the Junior is very resonant when unplugged, an attribute that I would chalk up to not only the tone wood being used, but also the fact that there is minimal routing in the body, which means more wood for the sound to resonate through. The result is a warm tone and lots of sustain. The Juniors I played and the one I ended up purchasing were all well-made guitars, which you would expect from an American-made instrument. I didn't find any issues with the fit or finish on mine, with the exception of a little bit of drill flash hanging out of the upper screw hole on the pick guard. As others have mentioned, I think it would be nice if Gibson offered a hardshell case with this guitar, as the soft case does little more than keep the dust off of it. Overall I would recommend this guitar to someone who is looking for the Gibson sound and not hung up on decorative appointments, because the Junior is pretty bare bones in that respect. But I think it's that simplicity that makes the Junior an attractive guitar; it's meant for picking up and playing.

Gibson made a few models of this guitar, the satin version and the full nitro laquer finish. I was lucky enough to find a full nitro tobacco finish at MF on sale for six bills so with that it came home with me. I would NOT pay six bills for the satin model, as they will show up used in a few months for much cheaper on MF used gear. If you can find the full nitro finish models go for it, that is a way cool guitar that actually has some real value for the money!
Bare bones minimum, but how much do you really need, as long as you have other guitars with other sounds this one is nice to have in the arsenel!
Honestly for eight bills its way over priced the quality is good but its too much cash for a satin finished guitar, satin is just a nice word for CHEAPER MODEL!
Decent build quality, great P90 sounds, over priced!

A real workhorse!

By ILovePointyGuitars

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

I went to a local music store today (as I do every Saturday) and I saw this guitar hanging in the wall. My sight just went over it completly, but did a double-take when it caught sight of the headstock- a Gibson! I instantly began examining it closely: fatty neck and a P-90 were what drew me to it- those are my favorite features on any guitar. I plugged in a Spyder Line 6 head with a Fender cabinet and it SANG! The tone is just amazing! I played some blues, then moved on to classic rock. Unvelibable! Tweaking the volume and tone controls you can get a much softer sound than just the bridge pickup. The finish (cherry) was really good, nice and deep. It had a pleaseant satin touch to it, and the first time, I felt I was actually playing wood. The pickup adapts to picking speed, so you can get soft, ballad-like arpeggios and, picking harder, you can go into rock/blues power chords. The only thing I didn t like: the PRICE! It's twisted, really, offering a "student" model for that price. I plan complaining to Gibson, I hope they listen to me. Overall, if you can afford it, this guitar is beautiful tonemonster/workhorse by excellence. Buy it!

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

I've wanted a single-cut Junior for years, now I finally have one. I've played it through a variety of amps, and the sound never disappoints. The P-90 snarls with plenty of guts, and when I need less bite, I just roll the tone knob back. This is my seventh Les Paul; and although the simplest by far, it has become my favorite. You just cant beat the tone that the combination of a slab of mahogany and a P-90 produce. And besides, it really looks cool on stage.
I gave it a "7" for features, because there aren't really that many - but what's there is all you need.
Solid as a rock. You could probably drop this thing, and it would still be in tune.
I have to say mine was a fantastic value, because i got it as "Used" for less than the regular price. It was listed as being in "C" condition, but being as a guitar such as this is made to be a workhorse anyway, that didn't matter to me. As it turned out, I had to really look hard to find what relagated it to a "C". Turns out there was a fingertip-sized ding on the lower body, that my strap covers anyway.

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

First, I had the string height/action on this guitar lowered by my guitar tech. The factory set up was high past the 11th fret. After getting it set up it now plays effortlessly. Having just the one tone knob makes a lot of sense. Turn it one way for bass, turn it the other way for leads. Clean the back of the neck with a light amount of Liquid Naptha Lighter fluid soaked onto a soft cloth. Applying Pledge or soap and water to this finish would only stain it darker and make it feel greasy, this guitars' finish isn't meant to shine, it has plenty of chrome on it for that. I have the red finish and it doesnt absorb fingerprints. Buffing the finish with a dry yellow flannel guitar polish cloth takes out the factory feel of its'grainy rough texture and makes the guitars' finish feel smooth. If you polish the headstock, you may rub the Gibson logo off, it isn't in an inlay on this guitar, its simply silkscreened on. Just graze lightly over the logo with a guitar polish cloth without applying pressure between string changes to clean/dust it. This guitar is a nice weight, its easy on the shoulder to stand and play with. I like its' tuning pegs, the strings stay in tune. The P-90 pickup sounds soft when it needs to be but can roar when you pick or strum hard, you really need to play this through a tube amp to get the feel and sound it was developed to have. Reccomended string size according to the owners manual is .46/.10. This guitar is in a class of its own, people who write unfounded reviews such as "juniors suck" have obviously had no experience with them, particularly in the way they respond so well with effects pedals.This really is a quality instrument, as a 3/4 scale Gibson has a unique feel of its own. If only it came complete from Gibson with a hardshell case. I bought a Les Paul Junior Case from [@] for $119. So far I like it.

Be Careful

By JIM-GgHU4

from San Diego

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

This guitar is amazing after you fix it up. The bridge on this thing is an old school wraparound which you need to replace with a wraparound in which you can fix the intonation for each string. The machine heads are cheap klusons and should be replaced with a set of grovers. After careful tweaking and lots of nut sauce this guitar is the best sounding and playing blues machine i've ever played.

The Les Teenager

By Twanger-SV3Ri

from Ohio

See all my reviews

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

8
The Les paul jr has a satin finish, the sunburst model has a painted black backing and neck whereby you cannot evaluate the eood grain. The single P90 pick up is low to the brigde and has a full sound, the small volume and tone control provide a range of tones and control. The pick up does provide a fare amount of output. The neck is smooth and has a nice contour with good string spacing for open chording and string bending. It is a minimalist dream, with one pick up , a volume and tone control, but who even uses the tone control? It has a plastic nut, and those old time plastic tuners that would crack apart and fall off in the old days. It seems to have one slab of wood , but it's hard to tell with the black satin paint. It would be nice to have a natural finish, with a red or gold pick guard. Just leave it a natural wood on the front and back with one solid piece of wood. Leave off the tone control, and add the green Klusons, and put some of those active pickups in it that the Gothic Morte has. This could be a minimalist teenagers dream.
But it's a no bones , nice guitar.

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

A solidly built, simple tone machine. Definitely a no-frills guitar, but it is great at what it does. Although it only has one pickup, the tone control is very responsive and provides a wide range of usable sounds. Right out of the box, the action was spot on, but the one-piece bridge had to be adjusted a bit to get the intonation under control. I have ordered a bridge that has intonatable individual saddles, and I think with that (haven't got it yet), the LP Junior will be even better.

The finish is flat white, which looks great. I don't know if it is due to the thin nitro finish or the super simple construction (or both), but the guitar is surprisingly loud when played unplugged. It definitely has great resonance! The neck is also not overly chunky, which I was concerned about. I'm a long time Fender guy, and this neck was fairly comfortable right away.

My only real gripe with Gibson is that the LP Junior does not come with a hardshell case. The gig bag it comes with is also very tight, and I believe with continued use that the finish on the headstock would probably wear off quickly. I bought an SKB case for it (and it fits the guitar very well!). I would definitely recommend a hard case for any Gibson guitar because of the angled headstock.

Gibson Les Paul Junior

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

This is a great guitar. I've been playing for about 6 years now and mostly played Strats. I also have a Carvin Holdsworth Signature Model, but this Junior is my new #1. I gave it a 2.5 on features because it is a very simple guitar. Just volume and tone with 1 pickup. The quality is 4.5 because of the satin finish. But the satin finish looks very good. It gives it that vintage look, I would probably still take it over a gloss finished one. My guitar came with a good action and near perfect intonation right out of the box, and I would say that most of the others would be close to the same. The most impressive thing about this guitar is how wide a range the tone control has. It seems to turn forever, and can go from very mellow jazz tones to bright twangy tele tones. P-90 pickups are now my favorite pickup and I would definitly recomend this guitar to anyone who is looking at getting a new guitar that can cover every style.

Excellent - a keeper

By guitarjunkyinalberta

from Edmonton, Alberta

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

I just purchased the white version of the Gibson Les Paul Junior and I absolutely love it. I've always wanted a Les Paul and although this one is lower down on the list of ones I really wanted, it was the one that was affordable, and it doesn't disappoint. The only down side to this guitar is the finish. If you really want the ultra-slick, varnish as thick as a slice of pizza, use the guitar as a mirror to comb your hair finish, then this guitar isn't for you. The finish is flat and as you clean your guitar it is actually taking some of the colour off. Not good, right? Well, depends on how you look at it. The guitar starts to get a worn look to it fairly quickly and is going to look custom and cool (if you like that sort of thing). Anyway, the sound is awesome. I realized that with many of my guitars I played mostly with the switch on the bridge pickup anyway, so the one pickup on the Junior is exactly what I need. Plus, the tone knob lets you adjust to get a good variety of sounds.I've only had my LP Jr for a short while but I'm convinced that this one isn't leaving any time soon. My Fender Strat and Tely, well, that's another story.

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

Simplicity pays off when it comes to the Les Paul Jr. My Junior arrived without harm or hassle from Musicians Friend, as always. The only thing I changed out was the original tuning machines for a set of Kluson KB3 Tone Pro's, but just for looks. Nothing wrong with originals, saved them actually. When Playing through my Fender Hot Rod Blues Jr. NOS or my Fender Champion 600 this guitar exhibits all the performance I expect from an American made Gibson Guitar. P 90 pup is clean and clear as a bell and the volume and tone controls are all you need to make this thing do everything from clean to scream. This is a solid built guitar. You get all a guitarist really needs in this instrument...just add your own personality and soul.

Hello, Junior!

Ask me a question

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

I just picked up a Satin White model here on Musician's Friend, and am really digging it! It replaced a white 60's SG Tribute that I found way too slick for my playing. The Junior lets me play as fast as I want to without overshooting my target. The neck is thick enough to allow me to put the brakes on when I need to. The guitar unplugged is so resonant and lively. At least mine is - I've played others that were less so. I'm sure the ebony fretboard (featured on the Satin White models) helps in that department. I absolutely LOVE the tone of this thing. Fit and finish were good, overall. Stock strings (whatever they are) are surprisingly good! I'm almost afraid to change them out when the time comes. I did notice, however, a small hairline crack in the finish around the neck toward the headstock end. The guitar seems solid enough and stays in tune, so I am pretty sure it's just a stress crack in the paint. The finish is fairly thin and not glossy, so I imagine I'll be seeing more of these over time. As long as the wood stays intact, I'm happy! I may swap out the pickup with a Seymour Duncan at some point, but honestly I don't really know if that's necessary. It's that good. Anyhoo...my only complaint to Gibson about this particular guitar is that it comes with this cheesy gig bag that *just* fits the guitar. I swear if you're not careful you'll rub the finish off of the headstock putting the guitar in and out of that bag. C'mon Gibson...these are nice guitars, ship'em in a case!!!

Excellent Tone a bit pricey

By Tin Ear

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

Was surprised of the tone of this guitar, I love the P90, I think the simplicity of the controls, finish, etc adds to the tone, one of the best sounding LP i've played. the neck feels wide and flat yet a bit chunky. I ordered the white model, looks retro, finish is a bit like the vintage mahogany LP, fit and finish was very good. Was disappointed it came with a gig bag and not a hard shell case. The guitar is a bit pricey for what you get, what Gibson isn't?

great guitar / ridiculous price

By Retroguy

from Undisclosed

See all my reviews

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

The LP Jr. in it's original incarnation was a stripped down rattle-the-paint-off-the-walls guitar that was geared to be AFFORDABLE to novice players. (The Juniors originally sold for just under $50 which was a bargain, even back then.) Gibson approached the guitar build with one mind set - reduce costs whenever possible. They achieved this by building a guitar with one single p'up, one volume, one tone, no binding and a screen painted company logo on it. With the latest version, Gibson got the overall build right (although they didn't angle the bridge the same as the original), but they forgot the original intention that lead to the design to begin with - make it AFFORDABLE. This price tag is a joke. Is it a great guitar? Absolutely. Is it a "value" buy? No way in hell.

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

I was very disappointed in this guitar. Les Paul Juniors and P-90s have lots of cache for me for providing great tone for a lot of players, and the no-frills style and straightforward look seemed like a win-win for a ballsy rock guitar with lots of tones in the knobs and pick attack. Alas, I shipped it back soon enough, very disappointed and angry....

The good: the P90 pickup is great--tons of chime and definition, sweet cleans and raunchy midrange bite for overdrive, especially getting power chords to explode out of a cranked amp. Very responsive to changes in the controls and pick attack. BUT,let me say that I can closely cop all of its tone with a good Tele/Esquire bridge pickup with a slight clean boost and by turning up the mids a bit on the amp--enough so that I felt underwhelmed when A/Bing with my Esquire. So, unless the shorter scale length is important, it may not trump a good Fender single-coil for you.

Now, the bad: this guitar arrived from Gibson very poorly set-up. I expect to have to tweak any guitar to my liking, but this was just awful. The nut was barely cut, making it impossible to keep in tune; by the second verse, chords are noticeably off. And the wraparound bridge sounds fine when playing alone, but in a band context, intonation sounds WAY OFF against another guitar or bass--I couldn't fake through a gig with this, much less track with one. The flimsy gig bag Gibson ships it with is a joke--you need a hardshell case for any guitar with a set neck and angled headstock! Dealing with these issues, I realized I wasn't looking at mods, I was looking at needed REPAIRS and upgrades to have a giggable guitar, and I wasn't going to shell out for a new nut, bridge, and hard case to do what Gibson should have done.

Like another reviewer, MF dinged me for shipping the guitar back because I wasn't happy with it, which is a whole different story, but a slap in the face to say the least. Suffice it to say I won't be buying another Junior....

    A surprising Les Paul

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Gibson Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

    First off I want to state that I am an Epiphone man. I am a working class guy and epiphone makes instruments that are built to last and that perform well. With that being said, I bought this Gibson because I just got promoted and decided to spoil myself a bit. I was looking for something that would stand out a bit from my other guitars. This Les Paul Jr. certainly does that. The P-90 is clear and powerful and gets surprisingly growly without getting muddy. I love the thin body, also. The finish took some getting used to, but I like it. My only gripe is that I wish Gibson had sprung for a hard case over a gig bag. All in all I am quite pleased with my purchase. This is a straight rock n roll guitar. Straight, simple and to the point.

    This guitar is at best OK, nothing much in the value dept, if you dont care about the name on the headstock look elsewhere as their are better deals to be had, this is over a slab of wood with a p90, seymour makes a better version of the pup, Ill pass!
