Subtle Aestethics, 100% Vintage Tone & Feel
Detailed Replica of a Rare Original "Student" Model
Very few black Les Paul Junior Double Cutaways were made in 1959 and even fewer exist today. Collector's Choice #19 is the first Les Paul Junior to be offered in the series and is based on one of the finest of its kind we've seen. It breaths that unmistakable P-90 tone and embodies the trademark feel and Spartan aesthetic that emerged from Gibson's intent to offer an entry level model that delivered uncompromised performance.
