2015 Gibson USA Les Paul Junior 100th Anniversary Model TV Yellow with OHSC





£675.00 




With Special Edition Gold Moulded Hard Case & G Force Tuning


This lovely Les Paul Junior came in as a part exchange. It truly is in near perfect condition with just some light playing marks only. It's in the very popular TV Yellow & the G Force tuning is actually very good (despite what I initially thought!) & string changing was a doddle too! 

Here's a little bit of history of the LPJ

The Gibson Les Paul Jr. is a solid-body electric guitar introduced in 1954 as an affordable, entry-level Les Paul. It was first released with a single-cutaway body style; models with a double-cutaway body style were later introduced in 1958. The Jr. continued through the first three years of the Les Paul/SG body redesign. It was discontinued in 1963, and was not re-released until 2001.


The goal for the Les Paul Jr. was to have a high-quality guitar that was still affordable. This was achieved by stripping the Gibson Les Paul down to the basics: no binding, no carved top, one pickup, one volume knob and one tone knob. The Junior was equipped with one P-90 "dog-ear" pickup at the bridge, which was actually a stop tailpiece from the standard Les Paul, repurposed. It was originally released in sunburst.


In 1955, Gibson launched the Les Paul TV model, which was identical to the Junior except for the name and a fashionable contemporary "limed oak" style finish, later more accurately named "limed mahogany". This natural wood finish with white grain filler often aged into a natural wood or dull yellow appearance, and eventually evolved into the opaque mustard yellow, popularly called "TV yellow". The model was not, as a popular myth says, to avoid glare from old TV cameras, but a modern look and a name to promote "The Les Paul & Mary Ford Show" then on television.


This particular guitar is the Gibson 100th Anniversary model with G Force tuning, a signature headstock transfer & a gold moulded hard case.
