Gibson Les Paul Junior 1957 Reissue TV Yellow #791198



What's behind the addition "TV" on the Les Paul Junior? Over the years, the myth arose that the special finish on the "Les Paul Junior TV" was supposed to prevent reflections that had a disruptive effect on the television cameras of that time. In truth, the choice of the name was only to promote the Les Paul Junior on the "Les Paul & Mary Ford Show".

The Les Paul Junior was offered as an affordable entry-level model – the so-called "Student Guitar". Therefore, the development of the guitar had focused on the essentials: a single Dog-Ear P-90 pickup, a volume and a tone control, and that's it. Extremely spartan, but that's what makes this guitar so appealing! Sometimes less is more. There's an old saying: "You only need ONE real good sound, nothing more!" The Dog-Ear P-90 installed on the Les Paul Junior TV offers just the right amount of crunch and fat sound – more biting than a single coil, but not as mulming as a humbucking pickup.

That is why the Les Paul Junior was not only used as a student guitar, but was also used in Blues and Rock music by well-known artists. A current example of this is Billie Joe Armstrong, singer and guitarist of the legendary band "Green Day", who gave his Les Paul Junior the nickname "Floyd".

So what are you waiting for ... come and get your yellow beauty! And if you prefer to have your Les Paul Junior TV with two cutaways, no problem: Also available at Guitar-Place: The Gibson Les Paul Special DC 1960 TV Yellow VOS.
