Starting in 1954, Gibson offered players a simple, affordable take on the Les Paul dubbed the Les Paul Junior. This bare-bones solidbody featured one dog-eared P-90 pickup, a stud-mounted bridge, an unbound Rosewood fingerboard, and slab Mahogany body. Because of its lower-end production quality, many early Les Paul Juniors have been the subject of major repairs or refinishes. Unaltered original Les Paul Juniors, however, are much more appealing to collectors.
