      Gibson Les Paul Junior Special with Humbuckers Electric Guitar (H80022)

A rock and roll classic outfitted with raw humbucking power.

Introduced in 1954 as an entry-level version of the Les Paul, the Les Paul Junior graduated from kids bedrooms, to garage bands, to club and arena stages through the course of three decades as it became a favorite of beginners and professional players alike. The bare-bones, slab-bodied, single-cutaway electric earned the respect of rock and rollers in particular, and became a punk favorite in the late ’70s and early ’80s, but also turned up in the hands of a surprisingly diverse range of guitar stars.

As simple as the Les Paul Junior was in design and construction, its basic cornerstone ingredients added up to create a robust and toneful instrument. The marriage of its resonant mahogany body, sturdy glued-in Gibson neck, and now a pair of Gibson 490 humbucking pickups has created a guitar with surprising reserves of power and crunch at an extremely appealing price. Now the Les Paul Jr Special w/ humbuckers reproduces the simple pleasures of that 55-year-old classic, while updating the format with a second pickup in the neck position (a la the Les Paul Special), and improved hardware in the form of a tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece combination.

  • Very good guitar

    As reviewed by James Stapay on 11/2/2012

    I always wanted a Les Paul Junior but I wanted it to have two humbuckers instead of one P-90 or even one humbucker. I bought this guitar because it was what I wanted without having to do the work myself. I'm very happy with this guitar. It came from the factory absolutely perfect. It was set up exactly as I would have made it, which I know is personal and it may not be perfect for everyone. String height, pickup height, and intonation were set where I didn't have to adjust anything. The finish is flawless. It plays great and it looks great. All for a price that I thought was good. If you want a Les Paul but you don't want to spend a lot of money or deal with the weight of a normal Les Paul than this is the one to get. Not as fancy as most Les Paul's but it plays and sounds great and that is what matters.

  • Absolutely Incredible

    As reviewed by Gary Doucette on 4/15/2013

    Bought this guitar 4 weeks ago. The tone, the looks (satin cherry) and the feel are incredible. Had to adjust the intonation but is perfect now. I am so impressed with the tonal quality and sustain. You can hear the guitar go through several tonal sounds while holding a note. The price is fantastic. Would pay several hundred dollars more but am happy with what I paid. I would recommend this guitar to anyone from beginner to pro.

  • Just recieved the Satin Cherry

    As reviewed by Gary Doucette on 3/8/2013

    My Les Paul Special (Satin Cherry) arrived yesterday. I am completely impressed. I owned a "74" Les Paul Standard that was unfortunately stolen and I would put this guitar up against it any day. The action is smooth, the look is fantastic, the humbuckers scream. I can't say enough about this guitar. Highly recommend to anyone.
