Exceptionally rare four digit serial number, real vintage 1958 Gibson Les Paul Junior Doublecut electric guitar.

This is an exceptional guitar in every sense of the word. It sounds amazing, condition is amazing, and it features especially rare features only found on a few 1958 Les Paul Juniors. Weight is an exceptionally light 7 lbs 2 oz (7.1 lbs!!!)

For a short while in 1958 the Doublecutaway Les Paul Junior began production. It featured sought after specs such as a FAT neck, vintage (small) sized frets, 4 digit serial number, thick doublecutaway slab body for tone and easy access to upper frets, and non-dogear, ie. height adjustable pickup. All of these features are as the guitar came from the factory and are extremely difficult to find together on any one Les Paul Junior. (Later Doublecutaway Les Paul Juniors had much thinner necks, non-height adjustable dogear pickups and larger Gibson sized fretwire)..."
