From Gibson - 

“Gibson Custom Shop is the pinnacle of craftsmanship, quality, and sound excellence. Each instrument celebrates Gibson's legacy through accuracy, authenticity and attention to detail.

In guitar lingo, being "ruined" is when you play something so good, there's no going back to what you once had. No Gibson guitar has evoked this expression more than the Les Paul Junior. In the 1950s it was sold as a student/budget model -- as simple as a set-neck electric guitar could be. But after a while, the humble Les Paul Junior caught the ear of professional guitarists who appreciated its sonic purity and minimalist components. Gibson Custom Shop has proudly kept the recipe the same for this Historic Reissue. From the solid mahogany and hide glue construction to the vintage-style wiring, the classic Les Paul Junior is back...and ready to ruin you.”

Switchcraft

This guitar is in excellent condition. It was bought second hand direct from a reputable US Gibson dealer back in 2016, but unfortunately without its Custom Shop certificate. But it’s definitely the real deal. All the CS reissue features are there, and the fit & finish is typically Custom Shop.

Everything is stock on this guitar and no changes have been made that the owner is aware of. Cosmetically in good shape, with a few minor dents on the back, and some pick swirling on the pickguard, but not much other wear to be seen.

Single cutaway solid mahogany body in sunburst finish with wraparound stopbar bridge and single ply black pickguard.

Weight: 7.89 lbs

Nicely rounded mahogany neck with white side dots and pearl dot inlays. Rosewood fingerboard is in excellent shape and frets show almost no visible wear. 1 11/16” nut width, 24 3/4" scale length. Vintage style two-stripe Gibson Deluxe tuners function perfectly. Neck is straight and truss rod works fine.

One P-90 single coil pickup in the bridge position with black knobs, 1x volume, 1x tone.

This is an accurate reissue of a vintage classic with fantastic, biting tone, and a resonant lightweight design. This Junior plays beautifully, with terrific touch and easy playability up and down the length of the fingerboard.

A classic one pickup screamer. Dial it down for cruisy, bluesy, jazzy goodness, or turn it up and peel the paint. A light and lively LP Jr in great condition and rather more affordable than the original.

Comes in its Gibson hard shell case in good condition.
