Gibson Les Paul Junior Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
Single cutaway mahogany body
The Les Paul Junior was made to capture the sound and feel that's made this Gibson axe a truly classic model. This solidbody guitar features an original-style mahogany "slab" body with the distinctive Les Paul shape. The Lightning Bar combination bridge and tailpiece also gives the Les Paul Junior a wonderfully snappy response that's fun to play - it's the perfect complement to its single P90 pickup.
One P-90 "dog ear" soapbar pickup
You want a raw, rocking experience? You can't of the Les Paul Junior's lone single-coil P-90 "dog ear" pickup. By the way, it's called dog ear because of the mounting flanges which players jokingly referred to as looking like a pair of dog ears. But, how does that single legendary pickup perform? Plug the Les Paul Junior into your favorite amp and prepare to be astounded by the sound. It's no coincidence that leagues of players got their start with this guitar - and came back to it time and time again.
Comfortable SlimTaper neck profile
Unlike the first Les Paul Juniors, which had significantly chunkier necks, this Les Paul Junior gives you the fast and comfortable feel of Gibson's SlimTaper neck profile. Made from absolutely solid mahogany, this '60s-style neck carve is one of the most popular profiles out there. What's more, Gibson gave the Les Paul Junior a sleek Obeche fingerboard, a great-looking sustainable wood!

A Les Paul Junior Dream!
by Rockin Bob from MidwestDon't look at it like it's an entry level guitar! That would be the great low price Gibson sells it for. This is a classic guitar similar to what a few of the great old classic rock guitarists played.... read more [+] This guitar rocks, period! Also, it is very classy looking. I've got other more expensive guitars, but I'm really enjoying playing my Les Paul Junior! Basically, the one P90 pickup doesn't take a backseat to the more expensive 2 pickup Les Paul's or other brands as well.
