GIBSON 2010 LES PAUL JUNIOR Jr 498T Humbucker USA Relic Sunburst Coil Tap 01326


Regular price $799
Gibson LP Jr in sunburst finish. Iconic dog-ear p90 pickup gives it grit and growl.

Description

This is a 2010 Gibson Les Paul Junior--a stripped down rock & roll machine--in Sunburst satin finish. Has a killer sounding Hot Alnico Zebra 498T humbucker with a great warm tone, and you can split the pickup by pulling out the Tone knob. Wraparound bridge, mahogany body and neck, and a baked maple fretboard. If you like the LP Jr but P90 is not your thing, this reved up Jr might be the ticket. These normally have a thin matte finish but this one got a light coat of nitro to seal the wood, which makes it even cooler looking. Hardware, frets, neck, and electronics are all in good shape. It's a great playing and sounding guitar. This is basically a medium relic guitar. Looks great with all the wear. Frets are A+ condition. No case. Weight is 8 pounds, 2 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking.

TONE

The 498T humbucker in these is flat out a great humbucking pickup. It's a simple guitar that gives a big fat tone. Luckily the coil split adds some versatility when you want to go for that single-coil more defined sound. You cannot go wrong with this pickup on an all-mahogany rig, especially for a rock sound.

Guitar Setup
My setup on guitars includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. I spray out any pots that are noisy. I turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. I don't claim to be a trained luthier, but I'm able to set guitars/basses for a reasonable out-of-box experience and have had very few complaints. If you're looking for the perfect setup on a used guitar, please expect to take it to a trained luthier who is familiar with your individual playing style and preferences. ps: basses get the same setup minus the new strings. Thanks!

Packing
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
