A Special Les Paul Junior

The Gibson Les Paul Junior Special solidbody electric guitar has a distinguished ancestry. Since 1954, the Les Paul Junior has added a cool, straightforward vibe to the world of rock music. Over half a century later, the Jr. is still a favorite among players everywhere. If you're looking for affordable US-built guitar, the LP Junior is right up your alley. Made from solid mahogany and finished in classic nitrocellulose, this Jr. gives you an impressively rich and detailed tone. Its SlimTaper neck is a pleasure to play, and you just can't beat the sound of two P90 pickups. Order your Gibson Les Paul Junior Special from Sweetwater, and find out for yourself.

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!
