Gibson Les Paul Junior Special at a Glance:
The classic formula for exceptional tone
Plug the Les Paul Junior Special into your favorite amp and prepare to be astounded. It's no coincidence that leagues of players got their start with this guitar - and come back to it time and time again. This solidbody guitar features an original-style mahogany "slab" body with the distinctive Les Paul shape. Mahogany is a tonewood prized for its warmth and sustain. A Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece adds intonation stability and tweakability, while a pair P-90 soapbar pickups cranks out everything from nearly clean, through a range of punchy, snarling break-up, to a full-on sonic blitzkrieg.
The Les Paul Junior Special is packing two P-90 soapbar pickups
Gibson has fitted the Les Paul Junior Special with a pair of single-coil P-90 "soapbar" pickups (unique - most LP Jr. models have but one). From Leslie West to Pete Townsend, P-90s have defined raw rock 'n' roll grind. These pups can be mellow, but properly amplified, a simple twist of your pinkie turns a P-90 into a snarling pit bull with a meaty bite all its own. P-90s serve up the immediacy you expect from single-coils, but with midrange complexity and harmonic nuance that's a pleasant surprise for the uninitiated. Check out the Who's Live at Leeds to hear Townsend coax a jaw-dropping range of tone out of his P-90 equipped SG.
Comfortable SlimTaper neck profile
Unlike the first Les Paul Juniors, which had significantly chunkier necks, the Les Paul Junior Special gives you the fast and comfortable feel of Gibson's SlimTaper neck profile. Made from solid mahogany, this '60s-style neck carve is one of the most popular profiles out there. When you wrap your fretting hand around this neck, you just want to play all night. It feels that good. You simply must out the Les Paul Junior Special for yourself!
