About Les Paul Junior Guitar
There are no two names more synonymous with guitars than those of Les Paul and Gibson. Founded in 1902, Gibson has created some of the most iconic guitar designs, and Les Paul's signature is undoubtedly the most famous of these.
Designed by Ted McCarty in collaboration with the legendary guitarist, the Les Paul has a versatile, practical design, making it popular with everyone from beginners to the most accomplished guitarists in the world.
The Les Paul is a compromise between traditional acoustic guitars and heavier, full-body models. It is known for its distinctive scratch plate and sleekly curved body. The scaled down Junior version, suitable for children and some adults, keeps all parallels with the full size version, occasionally losing a few frets on the way down.
Guide prices for these sought after guitars are high, especially when the guitar itself has age to it. Other things that adjust the price of the guitar are the strings, whether or not it has been modified, the material the body and neck is made of, as well as any other modifications or attachments. These commonly include custom heads, scratch plates, necks, frets, inlays, switches, whammy bars, bridges, or pickups.
Attachments sometimes sold alongside these guitars include straps, cases, spare strings and plectrums. If the guitar is not sold with a case and is not brand new, you should make sure that the seller uses appropriate packaging to protect the guitar against any damage during transit.
