Vintage Gibson LP JR - This is a great old wood 1959 or 1960 JR that plays and sounds great. Many years ago the owner decided to take the finish off and stain it. It looks great and fortunately they did not touch the front of the headstock. Because of the finish and some non original parts, you can pick this up for a fraction of the cost and you wont mind taking this one out to a club.
The neck is straight and the brazilian rosewood board looks great. The frets are original and in excellent shape. I had someone tell me that the neck profile feels more like a 1960 than a 1959. Because the serial number is gone, I am not certain of the year. There are no breaks or cracks in the guitar. The wiring looks original and the pickup is the correct vintage although it did not come with the guitar. There are some newer parts including; lightweight bridge, pickguard, truss rod cover, and tuning keys. There is a very minor route in depth only, (the previous owner had a soapbar P90 in it), and the bridge had been moved. There are a few extra holes from the old tuning keys and where the strap was located. But hey...this is a great old JR and is meant to be played!
Don't buy a Historic when you can get the real deal for a little more! Includes Gibson form fit case from the 70's. Ship to USA only. No negative feedbackers. Local pick is OK!
