Description

Here we have a beautiful rare Gibson Les Paul Junior Double Cut in TV Yellow – One owner from new

I believe these were made between 2010-2011 and were a limited run, very hard to come by

As you can see from the photos the guitar has been played, and loved. There are a few dings throughout most notably to the back towards the horn – it just adds mojo in my opinion

The neck is lovely and straight and the frets have lots of life left in them

An aftermarket scratchplate was fitted to the guitar sometime ago which was slightly bigger than the original, which left a hole, which has now been plugged and touched up – the 58 tortoise style scratchplate has now been added. It has crossed my mind to order a new plate 58 style which is slightly larger to cover the hole, in black and put it back to original with black knobs.

Strap locks have been fitted, originally one of the strap locks was on the horn, however the previous owner changed the location to the back of the guitar, as seen on the 58 custom shop. Both locations can still be used, down to your preference.

Here is the original description & specs, when it was on sale in retail outlets:

A mammoth tone monster, the Gibson Les Paul Junior Double Cutaway is perfect for stage or studio. Utilizing a single P-90 humbucker-sized single coil, Mahogany double cutaway body, Mahogany neck and a 22 fret obeche fingerboard, this Les Paul Jr Double Cut was built to rock with the best of them. The Gibson Lightning Bar wraparound bridge provides incredible stability and a unique design to keep your guitar properly intonated.

The Les Paul Junior Doublecut Exclusive carries Gibson’s lightning bar version of the hallowed wraparound bridge, which serves as bridge and tailpiece in one. This late-’50s update of the original smooth wraparound bridge includes raised, staggered ridges for improved string intonation. This simple, solid bridge has long been a favorite of many tone-conscious guitarists, who value its unparalleled coupling of strings and body.

Specs – Each Les Paul Junior Doublecut is crafted from solid mahogany slabs joined with ultra-strong Franklin Titebond 50 glue. This simple but effective tone wood has yielded some of the most classic tones in the history of rock. The original entry-level goal of the Les Paul Junior model directed a simple design, and the Les Paul Junior Doublecut retains that goal. The body is carved with slightly offset dual cutaways (with the bass horn slightly longer than the treble horn) for outstanding upper-fret access, and given a flat slab top for ease of manufacture. The result is a no-nonsense instrument that countless players have appreciated for more than 50 years.

A gloss finish with 90-sheen lacquer gives the Les Paul Junior Doublecut a high-end look that is consistent with its heritage, and a smooth, comfortable playing feel.
Process – The Les Paul Junior Doublecut is hand-finished in nitrocellulose in a process that is carefully monitored to ensure minimum build-up, in an effort to produce a final finish that breathes with the guitar and enhances natural resonance.

The neck of the Les Paul Junior Doublecut is constructed from a single piece of solid mahogany, and glued to the body at a 3.5-degree angle (pitch). Mahogany is the most traditional wood for Gibson electric guitar necks, and offers an excellent sonic and visual partner to the solid mahogany body. The neck on the Les Paul Junior Doublecut is carved to a rounded yet rather slim profile, which graduates from 0.80 in. deep at the 1st fret to 0.90 in. deep at the 12th fret. The angled, classical-style peg head and mahogany neck work together to provide exceptional tonal richness and resonance from the neck, with a good string definition and sustain.

The Les Paul Junior Doublecut is equipped with an obeche fingerboard, which enhances note attack and articulation. The fingerboard is unbound, in keeping with the original Les Paul Junior. The 12-inch radius of the Les Paul Junior Doublecut fingerboard provides smooth note bending capabilities and eliminates dead or choked out notes, common occurrences on fingerboards with lesser radiuses. The Les Paul Junior Doublecut sports 22 jumbo frets, all immaculately dressed and polished. The fingerboard of the Les Paul Junior Doublecut carries acrylic dot inlays, echoing the classic look of the original Les Paul Junior.

The nut on the Les Paul Junior Doublecut is made from Corian, which is mainly composed of acrylic polymer. This popular synthetic alternative to bone offers a very durable material, delivers enhanced sustain, and holds the tolerances of the precision cuts made in the slotting process. It is installed into the top surface of the neck, butting up to the end of the fingerboard to ensure proper tone and sustain transfer, and its nut slots are cut with Gibson’s PLEK system to ensure precise fit, break angle, and string spacing.

A single Gibson P-90 pickup equips the Les Paul Junior Doublecut in the style of the original Les Paul Junior, giving it the bite, punch and sizzle that have made these guitars favorites with rock, blues, and alternative-style players for more than 50 years. The Gibson P-90 pickup gives the Les Paul Junior Doublecut a snappy, slightly gritty response, with a chunky midrange, firm lows, and sweet, musical highs. This single pickup in the lead (bridge) position is known for its snarl and cutting power. The Les Paul Junior Doublecut uses a single Volume control, which consists of a quality 300k linear potentiometer for a smooth, natural volume roll-off. The Les Paul Junior Doublecut features a single master tone control. The pot has an ohm reading of 500k, is non-linear, and carries a .0223mF tone capacitor which allows a smooth transition from bright to warm. The guitar features a 1/4 inch output jack made by Switchcraft. Its super heavy duty construction holds your guitar cable securely in place.

The headstock of the Les Paul Junior Doublecut is equipped with vintage-style white-button tuning keys, which accurately replicate the look and performance of the original Les Paul Junior. The Les Paul Junior Doublecut carries Gibson’s lightning bar version of the hallowed wraparound bridge, which serves as bridge and tailpiece in one. This late-’50s update of the original smooth wraparound bridge includes raised, staggered ridges for improved string intonation. The Les Paul Junior Doublecut’s aluminum strap buttons are the same style and design that Gibson has used since the early 1950s.
