      Gibson Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar (580091)

The choice of numerous rock legends, the LP Jr. embodies the pure simplicity of rock 'n' roll.

Today's Gibson Les Paul Junior electric guitar captures many of the same details and intensity as the original, including a 24-3/4" scale length mahogany neck that meets the body at the 16th fret, a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard, Gibson's traditional rounded-neck profile, a wraparound bridge/tailpiece, and a single Gibson P-90 pickup that faithfully delivers all the power and punch expected from their single-coil pickup. Includes all chrome hardware, acrylic dot inlays, Gibson's silk-screened logo on the headstock, and a Corian pre-radiused nut. The Les Paul Junior comes with a plush Gibson gig bag.

Gibson's legendary P-90 guitar pickup
The P-90, introduced in the early 1950s, is Gibson's truly hallowed single-coil pickup and offers the soulful, classic tone that only a P-90 can. Delivering more warmth than a standard single-coil pickup, with higher output and sweet treble response, the P-90 continues to be one of the most popular pickups today, offering a distinct and powerful tone that remains unmatched in the face of relentless impersonation.

As the competition to develop and market affordable and professional built solidbody electric guitars was heating up in the mid 1950s, Gibson branched out into new directions that would yield a wide variety of innovative Gibson products at various price points. Among these new products was their Les Paul Junior single cutaway model, which quickly became Gibson's best-selling model and the instrument of choice for such legends as Leslie West, Steve Marriot, Keith Richards, Mick Ralphs, Mick Jones, Billie Joe Armstrong and Paul Westerberg.

  • Les Paul Jr - a wonderful rocker's guitar

    As reviewed by Mark Giacalone on 2/16/2012

    I went into GC intent on getting an Epiphone Les Paul of some sort. After trying a handful of Epis, then a few Gibson LP Studio fadeds (awesome), I glanced at two Gibson LP Jrs hanging there and tried them out. Holy smokes, what came out of these guitars blew the doors off of the Epis. I admired the simplicity and preferred the weight and feel. For the money, this was it. Note that this is not a shredder's guitar persay, and getting to the 22nd fret is not as easy as with other style guitars. Not having a rythmn pickup can also be limiting. For those reasons it is not the versatile instrument you may hope for. But, hands down this is the funnest guitar I have ever had, I absolutely love it. The crunch, grit and growl that comes out of this thing is unbelievable. The tone is beautiful as well.

    This is the BEST guitar that has ever been made. The P-90 pickup just screams away when you crank the distortion. The neck isn't like holding a baseball bat like a regular Les Paul. It is very light, and comfortable. This guitar doesn't mess around at all it takes no crap from anything. It is what i would call the definitive Rock'n'Roll guitar.
