This 1987 Gibson Les Paul Junior is a sleeper.  You don't see many double cut Juniors from the era, and most are not this clean.

The guitar is all original with no issues, changes or repairs.  Well, the strap buttons are changed to Dunlop locks, but that is it!

It came in on a trade with a great setup with the strings wrapped over the stoptail bridge.  It plays so well and sounds so  good that we just left it that way.  WRapping the strings over the bridge before they cross over the tuneomatic bridge gives you a little less string tension for slightly slinkier play.

There are some dings and superficial wear, but the guitar has been well cared for.  The frets appear to have been milled and crowned once and there is plenty of life left for years of use.  The truss rod has been checked and is effective, allowing for future relief adjustments if necessary.

The original hardshell case is included.
