GIBSON LES PAUL JUNIOR RARE! Worn Aged Polaris White Faded Satin Relic Jr 90583
This is a pretty rare bird. A Les Paul Junior in a faded worn white, no gloss coat. See lots of these in sunburst and cherry, but not white!

This is a 2009 Gibson Les Paul Junior in a Worn White finish. I called it "Polaris" white because it looks a lot like that color Gibson used back in the day. Less gloss finish means your tone comes through loud and clear--plus, these relic really fast, so they look cool within a year. Playability is top notch. The single dog-ear P-90 pickup does the honors with its legendary sound. Strapped to a mahogany body and neck, it's pure rock and roll bliss. Rounded 50s neck is nice and chunky. Frets are pristine and I just polished them so they look great. Fretboard is rosewood--NOT baked maple--good thing in my book. Various minor wear marks (see pics), but that's part of the trip. Made for those who don't want a museum piece, but rather a tasty light relic. It's ready to play and enjoy. No case. Weight is 7 poiunds, 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.

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!
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.
