Gibson Les Paul Junior Special Faded Cherry 2003
Gibson LP Junior Special, faded cherry, made in USA 2003. This is a great sounding guitar, plain and simple. The LP Special has seen a whole bunch of different versions over the decades, but this one gets all the good stuff: tasty two piece mahogany body, belly carve, ABR style bridge with stoptail, streaky rosewood board and a pair of tasty P-90 single coils. The neck is a slim 60s style profile, arrow straight and sleek in the hands and easy to get around on. The body is fairly light and the thin finish really lets it ring, so you can feel the notes ringing around during play. Plugged in, there's a sweet clarity and chime to the neck pickup and a barking, bright punch to the bridge; it's an absolute riff monster and will surely get your tube amp cooking just right. The finish has faded a bit with age, but this is in awesome shape overall and oozes a certain understated charm. We love P90s around here, you love P90s, everyone loves P90s... so hey, join the party!
