Gibson Les Paul Junior 1959


images via this auction

"The pickguard is black as Gibson used on the Junior for a short stretch in 1959. To quote an online source for vintage guitar specs, "With the double cut body style the pickguard changes to single ply tortoise, but either a black pickguard or a tortoise pickguard can be seen until late 1959/early 1960. " The body has the more rounded edges that are present on Juniors from early 1959 on.

The pickup is hot - it reads 8.91K. The guitar weighs 7 pounds 10 ounces. The serial number is 9232**."
