    1955 Gibson Les Paul Junior Sunburst Electric Guitar, #510888. This is one of our favorite guitars of the auction! It's not the prettiest and it's not the most expensive. It is however one of the friendliest. Long after you hand over a small King's ransom for it, it will quickly become your favorite guitar for life. From the 1st time you pick it up, it just fits. Kind of like your favorite flannel shirt or pair of old jeans. Remember that old broken in leather baseball glove you favored as a kid? Previous owner didn't like the look of the plastic pickguard on the guitar, so he removed it. It's long gone. Looks like original nut is shimmed with paper. Black plastic truss cover is missing. Also, missing one knob. Simple fixes. The original dog-eared P-90 pickup sings. Original single-line 3-on-strip tuners. Please expect scratches, nicks and dings throughout. Not clean enough to be called museum grade and way too nice to be called a player. Frets are original and have lots of life left. Aftermarket soft case. Condition: Very Good+
