1958 was a monumental year for Gibson in which a whole new lineup of now-famous models were introduced. One of them was the redesigned “double cutaway” Les Paul Junior, which has since found its place in music history as a favorite of hard rock musicians. The extra fret access of the double-cut construction allows upper octave leads while the “simple is better” single-pickup setup projects only thick, heavy tone. Gibson Custom Shop has proudly revived the original recipe from 1958 for this Historic Reissue, from the solid mahogany and hide glue construction to the vintage-style wiring. It is an accurate and faithful replica in every possible way.
Part way through 1958, Gibson updated the Les Paul Junior. Changes included a new double cutaway body-shape with rounded horns as well as a new standard Cherry finish. Other features of the Les Paul Junior remained the same: the Rosewood fingerboard, slab mahogany body, stud-mounted bridge, and single P-90 pickup. comes with Gibson CS case.
