WE'RE ON VACATION TILL JULY 15 -- NOTHING SHIPS TILL THEN!

GIBSON LES PAUL JUNIOR PELHAM BLUE USA discontinued color Awesome Jr! 11507


Regular price $1,499
This is a 2011 Gibson Les Paul Junior in discontinued Pelham Blue finish. You don't see many around but they look amazing. These have a gloss nitro finish and 60s Slim Taper neck profile. The single dog-ear P-90 pickup provides time tested sought after tone--strapped to mahogany body, it's pure rock and roll bliss.

The guitar is very clean. Visible marks include a paint chip on rear edge and another pinhead size mark (see pics). Overall I'd call it a 9/10. (There are of course tiny scuffs and marks just from being handled [it's 10 years old]. If you know you are sensitive about tiny imperfections, contact and ask questions). Frets are in excellent condition. I put a washer under the rear strap peg to cover a little paint chipping around the screw hole. It comes with a black strap and Schaller straplocks. Also included is a Gibson gigbag and original factory paperwork. Weight is 7 pounds, 8 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) I may end auction early if it sells elsewhere. Thanks for looking!

Note on Pelham finish:
Pelham blue finish starts to "green" after a few years. If you see Pelham guitars from the 60s, most are completely green. You can see green stripes already starting on this guitar but very faint and you have to hold the guitar in the sun to see them. This is normal, and if you own the guitar for another 30 years, you can expect it will turn green (and be worth a bundle).

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.
