Les Laul Junior
  The Gibson Les Paul & SG Juniors


"Juniors" are wildly popular student guitars.  They came in Les Paul and SG body styles.  Juniors were first Introduced in 1954 with the Les Paul Jr.   The Junior utilized a very basic slab body design with one P-90 pickup, a simple wrap around stop tailpiece, lower end open back Kluson strip tuners, dot fingerboard inlays and a standard sunburst finish.  Gibson also offered a "TV” Yellow version which was made to look white on black and white TV.  Les paul juniors were initially single cut then later avaible as a double cut body. 

Thanks to Rock N Roll Vintage for some of these photos.
