Gibson has a load of different types of guitars and they also have a sub branch company called Epiphone which is basically the exact same guitars as Gibson Epiohone's have the exact same type of guitar and see you can get the same type of tone overall with these instruments. This is basically a Les Paul style guitar that is actually called the junior guitar. Gibson's junior guitars feature a single humbucker pick up and the body shape was a little bit thinner and smaller overall.


A real Les Paul boiled down to the basics with one powerful Humbucking pickup.
Bolt-on Mahogany neck with SlimTaper neck profile.
Rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium/jumbo frets.
Premium hardware including Nickel hardware, compensated wrap-around bridge and covered 14:1 tuners.


This is a very cool guitar for someone who likes that Gibson Les Paul tone but wanted in a cool vintage style guitar. It features mahogany wood which gives it a nice warm juicy tone and it fits well in most styles of music. It has a nice focus tone and it's a little bit different voicing from a standard Gibson Les Paul instrument. This is a cool hot Rod Gibson Les Paul guitar because it features humbug to pick up along with one volume control knob and one tone control knob. It has great sound but not something that I would look for in a Les Paul guitar.


These guitars have been discontinued for a while but you can find them fairly easily on eBay or other auction sites and as well as online forums classifieds. This is a cool guitar to add to anyone's collection. If you want a hot rod LP style guitar than this is a cool way to go. I like this guitar a lot but I would not see it being the main go to guitar for me. It does have a cool hot rod look with the single hum but overall the sound is a bit lacking for me. I need a more balanced tone that can cover some of the brighter higher frequency tones.
