What we say:

At A Glance

Playing a Gibson Custom Shop guitar is an experience you won’t forget. The attention to detail and quality are extremely impressive and when you apply that to a model such a 57 Les Paul Junior then you have a real winner! It is hard to believe that what was originally sold as a student/budget guitar turned out to be an all time classic! This Les Paul Junior has been finely crafted by following the same formula as the original. This is as close as you’ll get to the real deal from ’57 but without the astronomical price tag and in perfect new condition too. The Light Aged finish gives the classic TV Yellow just enough character to make it feel like this guitar has already been on a great journey even though it is about to begin its journey with you!

Features We Love:

Custom Dog Ear P90

Giving the Junior its trademark tone, this Custom Dog Ear P90 brings you all the vintage sounds you could want from an instrument like this. Rolling down the volume and gets those lovely smooth tones but with full volume and a touch of gain you’ll be enjoying that sweet snarl that only a P90 can get!

Historic Reissue

This isn’t just a tribute style model – it is full on historic reissue. This means the guitar is made from solid mahogany with a one piece body, has been constructed using hide glue and has vintage style wiring – all of the hallmarks to make this as authentic to the original as possible!

Classic Simplicity

The plug and play mentality is alive and well! We live in a time of almost endless options where we have the ability to finely tweak sounds but then end up spending more time doing that than actually playing! The Les Paul Junior takes you back to the mindset of just playing. No distractions, no unnecessary mods, just a stripped back design that has proved time and time again that it is a winner. 1 pickup, 1 volume, 1 tone, a wraparound bridge… it doesn’t get much better than that!

Pros:

  • A faithful Reissue of an iconic model
  • Finely crafted by Gibson Custom Shop
  • Simplicity at its best

Gibson Custom Shop is the pinnacle of craftsmanship, quality, and sound excellence.

Each instrument celebrates Gibson’s legacy through accuracy, authenticity and
attention to detail.

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 Historic Reissue. 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.
