Vintage original cherry red 1959 Gibson Les Paul Jr with Original Hardshell case. I purchased this from the original owner over 20 years ago & I've taken very good care of it. The guitar has never had any breaks or cracks. It is in great vintage condition with very little overall wear as seen in photos. All original tuners which are a little stiff like with every 1959 Les Paul jr tuners. You can tell the back of the neck has hardly any play wear which is a true sign that this guitar was not played often. A vintage humbucker was professionally installed at one point back in the 70's but he kept the Original P-90 which was reinstalled before he sold it to me. Please examine photos. Very minor! Comes with the original 1959 hardshell case. Everything is all original except for the bridge. I had the bridge replaced for proper intonation which is very important for any guitar player. I kept the original bridge... if I can locate, I will include it in the listing for now it is being sold with the upgrade bridge. This bridge slides right into the original holes so nothing was modified for this bridge. The hardshell case does show some wear as to be expected but is fully intact and has no structural damage. All latches work perfect. The neck is as straight as an arrow and it was professionally set up earlier this year. Im sad to see it go but I'm just not using it anymore. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. It plays like a dream & In no way compares to any guitar ever made.  Feel free to come test it out if you're in the NYC area.

Insurance is highly recommended & will cost extra.
