This 2020 Gibson Custom Shop 1957 Les Paul Junior Reissue is in excellent, like new cosmetic condition. There is one line in the finish on the upper bout – I have inspected it throughly in sunlight and under a black light and it appears to be under the finish, like a paint wrinkle. It does not affect anything but it is quite noticeable in bright light and I’m pricing this guitar accordingly. There are two very small dings on the back of the body. Otherwise, this guitar doesn’t show any play wear and it looks brand new. This Junior has an exceptionally chunky, rounded 50s neck profile that feels incredible in the hand and is extremely easy and fun to play. The fret wire on this guitar is in flawless condition and this Les Paul plays absolutely dynamite up and down the fingerboard with great smooth action and excellent intonation. The overall feel of this instrument is just superb. This guitar is lightweight coming in at 7lb even and it’s also very resonant – This Junior rings out loud when being played unplugged. The Dog Ear P-90 pickup sounds stellar. I was able to get some incredible sounds out of this guitar just plugged straight into a 1965 Fender Super Reverb. The tone and volume controls are very dynamic and make it very possible to dial in all sorts of different tones. From snarling saturation to snappy cleans to dark round semi-jazzy stuff, this guitar will deliver it! If you are searching for a killer playing and sounding Les Paul Junior, this Custom Shop 57 reissue is winner!
