A masterfully built vintage-inspired Les Paul Jr. that embodies exceptional craftsmanship.

The Gibson Custom '57 Les Paul Jr. Single-Cutaway is a museum-quality recreation of one of the most iconic and influential electric guitars ever made. Earning both the VOS (Vintage Original Spec) and HLE (Historic Limited Edition) designations, this masterpiece was handcrafted by Gibson's most experienced luthiers in Nashville to capture the magic of the original 1957 Les Paul Junior—every detail, curve and specification meticulously studied and replicated.

Vintage Construction With Period-Correct Techniques

Every component adheres to the authentic construction methods of the '50s originals. The nitrocellulose lacquer finish is painstakingly applied and properly aged, while the body and neck binding utilize traditional hot hide glue just like the vintage pieces. Beneath the surface, lightweight solid mahogany is selected for the body and neck, imparting the signature warmth and richness that defined the Les Paul's tone. Even the scale length, frets, wiring and hardware faithfully recreate the look and feel of a '57 Les Paul Junior.

True Historic Tone From a Legendary Design

As you caress the nicely rounded '50s neck profile and scan the vintage-style inlays, you'll be instantly transported back to the era that birthed so many genre-defining sounds. Plug into your favorite tube amp and the '57 Les Paul Junior comes alive, generating harmonically rich chords and searing leads. The wraparound bridge lends itself to wild, untamed solos and crunchy rhythms. From warm jazz tones to searing rock riffs, this guitar recaptures all the magic that made the Les Paul an icon.

Exclusive Craftsmanship You Can Hear and Feel

Only a select few of Gibson's most seasoned luthiers construct these VOS and HLE instruments. Every minute detail, every precise spec, is carefully measured and recreated by the experienced hands in the Nashville Custom Shop. You can hear the effort in the guitar's resonance, sustain and woody midrange character. You can feel it in the silky playability and immaculate fretwork. And most importantly, the '57 Les Paul Junior inspires you to play at the highest level every time you pick it up.
