What we say:
Gibson’s enduring tradition of offering supremely affordable Les Paul ‘Junior’ models continues into 2019 with this brand new offering. Not a vintage reissue nor a classic design, this double cut from Nashville is an entirely fresh take on the Les Paul Junior theme.
The outline will be largely familiar to LP Junior aficionados, with its influential, slab-like Mahogany body proving to be perfect again for another generation of players. Gibson have added a new pickguard design here, presumably to give this guitar its own identity amidst a slew of more ‘vintage correct’ Juniors and Specials. We think that is fine, since this is a new take on the model as part of Gibson’s ‘Modern Collection’.
In true Junior fashion, this Gibson is all about simplicity: one pickup, one volume knob, one tone knob and a wraparound bridge/tailpiece. Nothing is wasted here: it’s a triumph of function. All of these elements are collected on that new pickguard, which has a quality 5-ply black and white construction.
The body itself is Mahogany, with a Slim Taper Maple neck glued in and the whole lot receiving a satin coat of nitrocellulose lacquer. Happily, the jack socket is located on the body’s side rather than directly on the front like some other Junior models. This keeps things more tidy and practical in one opinion.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: P90s are awesome. You get all the bark and aggression of a humbucker with all the snap of a single coil. One P90 in the bridge is all you need, frankly. Gibson know this and have made an art out of it! This instrument may not have binding or fancy inlays but that’s hardly the point with Les Paul Juniors! If you want to lay down the law with authority, tone and a great feel, check out this 2019 Gibson Les Paul Junior Tribute DC in Worn Cherry.
