In 1954, Gibson introduced the first Les Paul Junior. At that time, it had a retail price of $120 and proved to be a very successful model. With its single pickup, simplified controls, flat-top, and distinctive tone, it made the now classic Les Paul model affordable to most every guitarist.
Epiphone has reissued this classic design with many of the same great features that made it so popular”and a few upgrades.
Original Juniors were equipped with a single P-90 pickup. This limited edition Epi features a single humbucking pickup. Unlike older P-90 single coil pups, this custom-made 700T humbucker is noise-free and specifically designed for the bridge position. With its ceramic magnet and slightly overwound coils, this pickup has clear highs with increased definition and no muddiness. The pickup is controlled by a single volume and single tone control.
The LP Junior features Epiphone's SlimTaper(tm) neck profile that's both fast and comfortable to play. To add bite as well as stability, the neck is made of hard maple and bolted to a select mahogany body. The fingerboard is made of solid rosewood for smooth, long-lasting performance and is fitted with 22 medium-jumbo frets. Like all Epiphones, the headstock is angled at 14 to provide excellent downward string pressure on the nut without the use of string-tree gadgets that often cause tuning problems. To provide further tuning stability and accuracy, the Junior features deluxe 14:1 covered machine heads. For accurate intonation, the vintage-style wrap-around Stopbar Bridge has adjustment screws at each post. For long-lasting performance and playability, an adjustable truss rod inside the neck allows for neck relief adjustment. Other features include nickel plated hardware and a "Limited Edition" logo on the back of the headstock.
As with all Epiphones, the limited edition Les Paul Junior is backed by Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 Customer Service.
