GIBSON 2011 LES PAUL JUNIOR Jr 498T Humbucker USA Satin TV Yellow Coil Tap 11531


Regular price $850
Description

A 2011 Gibson Les Paul Junior--a stripped down rock & roll machine--in the classic sunburst matte 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. Volume/Tone knobs, wraparound bridge, mahogany body and neck, and a baked maple fretboard. Neck has that nice 50s rounded profile.

Overall nice wear for a mild relic effect, which is the whole point of that thin finish: to let your tone come through but also to relic quickly. All hardware is clean. Frets and neck good. All electronics perfect. It's a great playing and sounding guitar. No case. This model was only made for one year so it's not easy to find. 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
All setups are done by our in-house luthier. Setup 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. We spray out any pots that are noisy, 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. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. 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.
Manufacturer Info
Today's Gibson Les Paul Junior electric guitar captures many of the same details and intensity as the original, including a 24-3/4" scale length mahogany neck that meets the body at the 16th fret, a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard (ebony on the Satin white finish model), Gibson's traditional rounded-neck profile, a wraparound bridge/tailpiece, and a single Gibson Burstbucker pickup. Includes all chrome hardware, acrylic dot inlays, Gibson's silk-screened logo on the headstock, and a Corian pre-radiused nut. The Les Paul Junior comes with a plush Gibson gig bag.

As the competition to develop and market affordable and professional built solidbody electric guitars was heating up in the mid 1950s, Gibson branched out into new directions that would yield a wide variety of innovative Gibson products at various price points. Among these new products was their Les Paul Junior single cutaway model, which quickly became Gibson's best-selling model and the instrument of choice for such legends as Leslie West, Steve Marriot, Keith Richards, Mick Ralphs, Mick Jones, Billie Joe Armstrong and Paul Westerberg.
