Rebirth of a Solidbody Classic
Strap on the Gibson Les Paul Junior Tribute Doublecut solidbody electric guitar and experience a primal instrument that's primed for rock 'n' roll. The Les Paul Junior Tribute pays homage to one of the 1950s' most beloved guitars. From its single P-90 pickup to its SlimTaper neck profile to its simple-yet-sturdy hardware, you'll love the instantly recognizable LP single-cutaway design and vintage vibe. With original LP Juniors becoming harder and harder to get a hold of, this Les Paul Junior Tribute Doublecut puts a classic in your hands.
Double cutaway mahogany slab body
Gibson built the Les Paul Junior Tribute with one thing in mind: to deliver the feel, sound, and vibe of a genuine LP Junior to your hands. This axe features a premium-quality mahogany slab body that retains the distinctive Les Paul shape. The nickel-plated wraparound bridge anchors your strings to the body for great sustain, proving that sometimes simple is better. It's the perfect example of a purpose-built instrument, and a real blast from the past.
One P-90 pickup in the bridge position
You won't be able to get enough of the Les Paul Junior Tribute Doublecut's lone single-coil P-90 pickup. Plug the Les Paul Junior Tribute into your favorite amp and prepare to be astounded by the sound. The pickup straddles the perfect line between single-coil clarity and humbucker power. Yet, when cranked, it screams with a midrange snarl all its own. It's no coincidence that leagues of players got their start with this guitar — and keep coming back to it time and time again.
SlimTaper neck feels great and provides exceptional playability
This Gibson Junior sports a comfortable, fast-action neck with a SlimTaper profile. Early Gibson guitars had huge, sometimes ungainly necks. By 1960, Gibson had gradually carved down this profile into what became their SlimTaper neck. As your fingers moved down this neck, the precisely controlled width-to-thickness ratio of the Firebird's SlimTaper neck offers a consistent, fast, and comfortable feel. It's no wonder many life-long guitar players consider the SlimTaper Gibson's finest neck.
