In guitar lingo, being "ruined" is when you play something so good, there's no going back to what you once had. No Gibson guitar has evoked this expression more than the Les Paul Junior. In the 1950s it was sold as a student/budget model -- as simple as a set-neck electric guitar could be. But after a while, the humble Les Paul Junior caught the ear of professional guitarists who appreciated its sonic purity and minimalist components. Gibson Custom Shop has proudly kept the recipe the same for this 1957 Les Paul Junior Reissue Electric Guitar. From the solid mahogany and hide glue construction to the vintage-style wiring, the classic Les Paul Junior is back... and ready to "ruin" you.

This guitar is extremly well made, no qc issues whatsoever. This guitar is very resonant, its almost acoustic like unplugged. Ive played and owned a lot of guitars over the years and they dont even compare. A custom Gibson is a huge difference over a production model. Definetly worth the price, this may be the best guitar ive ever owned. Thanks zZounds for enabling me to purchase this guitar. Your payment plans help so many people afford the gear of their dreams.
