version of the hottest Les Paul Guitar that Gibson ever

guitar because it was very light (weight) and the neck was perfect
for smaller handed players. Its flat un-carved body was and
remains a very attractive instrument today. Epiphone is a wholly
owned subsidiary of Gibson Guitars and is the only other entity
permitted to build the Les Paul Jr. This lightly used (broken
in & sounds awesome) black body, cherry neck and chrome hardware
make this great 1st guitar along with a genuine Gibson USA gig-bag,
worth $250. Bid Hi!
