Gibson Les Paul Jr. w Humbucker in Lexington KY for $400

I don't know exactly which Les Paul Jr. model this is but somebody is offering a good deal on a USA Gibson. Guitar Center offered a special edition LP Jr. with a Humbucker for $599 a little while ago but that guitar had a satin finish and plastic tuner buttons. It also had a coil tap for the humbucker. But i don't think it was available in a Red Sunburst like this one.

This model seems to have a gloss finish and it has chrome tuners and what appear from the photo to be speed knobs. Whatever it is it would be worth checking out.

Warning: I can' help but notice that the back of that neck seems to be unpainted which allows for one other possibility - this could be a cheap Epiphone Jr. Body with a Gibson Sonex neck bolted onto it. Caveat Emptor!

Selling my Gibson (not epiphone) guitar ...serious inquiries can be made via email or text/call five zero two ************.


  1. Wouldn't a real Gibson Les Paul, Jr have a set neck? That one looks like a bolt-on.

  2. I can't see well enough to be sure but it looks like a bolt on neck. You're probably right about the Epiphone body.

  3. Three screw truss rod plastic nut...cheapo Epi tuners. Epi or worse.

  4. It's a Maestro. A very cheaply made import marketed for a while as learner instruments for kids. Should list for $75!


I appreciate your comments but please no commercial links or non guitar related conversations. Thank you. - JC


I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
