About This Listing

Classic Reissue from Gibson

Don’t let the tag “Junior” fool you. There is nothing small about this classic reissue. Today’s Gibson SG Junior stays true to its historical roots and brings the past into the present without compromise. With thick, punchy tone that translates through gritty rock ’n’ roll to blues to raw garage-punk, the SG Junior is a workhorse axe that has been front and center in all these styles in the hands of some of the most legendary players of the past 50 years. Featuring a lightweight mahogany body and one absolutely red-hot P-90 pickup, this guitar brings the heat and a surprising level of versatility. The SG Junior also has the SlimTaper neck that so many players have come to love.

P-90 power and punch

We have many fiercely loyal P-90 fans here at Sweetwater. These guitarists know that the P-90 offers a unique tonal palette that is distinct from — and complements — humbuckers and traditional single-coils. Gibson’s first successful single-coil pickup, the P-90 can be heard on countless classic recordings. With its biting treble and high output, the P-90 cleans up nicely when you roll back your guitar’s volume pot. It’s an amazingly versatile pickup with its own brand of grit — a bit brighter, leaner, and less refined than a humbucker and almost as hot. Hit your amp hard, and the P-90 really wails. Plugged into a proper high-gain tube amp, you can elicit grind, sizzle, and bark that would be impossible with humbuckers — or with other single-coils, for that matter. To hear P-90s brilliantly deployed in historical context, check out Santana’s fiery Woodstock performance or the Who’s masterful Live at Leeds album.

SlimTaper neck and Plek’d frets for optimized playability

Comfort and playability were two of Gibson’s primary concerns when they were designing the SG Junior. You’ll be delighted by how this guitar’s fast SlimTaper neck profile comfortably fits your hand in just the right way. For your playing pleasure, the rosewood fingerboard is buffed to silky smoothness and bound with rolled edges so that no fret ends impede your dexterity. The frets are dressed to perfection using a Plek Pro machine for optimized playability. Typically reserved for top-dollar custom guitars, this process levels the frets with pinpoint precision, providing you with the most playable fretboard you’re likely to own.

Nitro finish for the look and feel of a classic

Gibson gave the SG Junior a gorgeous nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Nitro finishes — standard back in the day — are significantly thinner than today’s polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to “breathe.” Nitro finishes not only look amazing, but they also enhance the instrument’s tonal qualities. The Les Paul Standard ’50s has the look and feel of a lovingly cared-for classic — one that will only improve with age.

I got this new from Chicago Music Exchange,  with the chip in the finish. It's never bothered me it is pictured closely for your consideration. Besides that and normal light picking scratches on the guard it's in great condition.
The board is super rose colored and has been smooth as it was a little rough from the factory. No fret wear to speak of. Beautiful guitar, im going to miss it, for sure.
Feel free to ask any questions and check out my shop, thanks.
