I bought this 1959 Les Paul Junior from a friend at college in 1972. As you can see from the accompanying photos, there are many imperfections in the instrument’s finish. All of these were sustained before this guitar came into my possession. Within one year I had made the following improvements:
Replaced the original tuning gears with Grovers (sorry, I don’t know what happened to the originals)Guitar was professionally re-frettedReplaced a faulty tone control capacitor and replaced non-shielded wiring with shieldedBought a 1972 Gibson hardshell case to keep it in (included in this sale)Replaced a broken bridgeThis Les Paul is still as solid as a rock after 49 years. It is a truly amazing piece of work. Everything except for the items mentioned above are the original equipment. (Including the P-90 single coil pickup and tone/volume control knobs). There is a slight crack in the headstock that has been there since the day I first saw it, and has never been a problem. Also, adjusting the bridge for proper intonation and action is tricky. I have had best luck with light gauge strings and have put on a new set of Ernie Ball Regular Slinkys just now.

It breaks my heart to have to sell this instrument, but my musical tastes have changed and this particular guitar doesn’t mesh well with my new taste for jazz. My loss is your gain.

Thanks for bidding!
