Gibson's Traditional Rounded Neck Profile

No guitar neck profiles are more distinguishable than the neck profiles employed on the Gibson models of today. The rounded neck profile found on the Les Paul Junior emulated the neck profiles most commonly found on Gibson's iconic Les Paul models of the late 50's. Machined in Gibson's rough mill means that there are no two necks with the same dimensions; while each neck has the basic characteristics of the rounded neck profile, each neck will be slightly different, with a distinguished but traditional feel.

Classic Dot Inlays

With a figured, swirl acrylic to give the Les Paul Junior the classic "pearl" look, the classic dot inlay is one of the most distinguishable feature of many traditional Gibson Models.

One-Piece, Solid Mahogany Body and Set-Neck Construction

Two of the most central features of the Les Paul Junior are its one-piece, solid mahogany body, and its set-neck construction, or glued neck joint. Just like most of Gibson's classic guitars, the neck of the Les Paul Junior is set into the body's neck cavity using glue to ensure a "wood-to-wood" contact, no air space in the neck cavity, and maximum contact between the neck and the body - allowing it to function as a single unit. Better tone, better sustain, and no loose or misaligned necks.

The Wood

As with all Gibson woods, the regimen involved in selecting the right body wood and the formula to dry it out is extensive. First, the wood is personally inspected and qualified by Gibson’s team of skilled wood experts before it enters the Gibson factories. These onsite inspectors also ensure that the plain maple comes from corporations adhering to the forest-saving standards of the Rainforest Alliance, of which Gibson is a proud member and sponsor. Inside the Gibson factories, humidity is maintained at 45 percent, and the temperature at 70 degrees.

This ensures all woods are dried to a level of “equilibrium,” where the moisture content does not change during the manufacturing process. This guarantees tight-fitting joints and no expansion, and controls the shrinkage and warping of the woods, in addition to reducing the weight. It also improves the woods’ machinability and finishing properties, and adherence to glue. Consistent moisture content means that every Les Paul Junior will respond evenly to temperature and humidity changes long after it leaves the factory.

Gibson’s Legendary P-90 Pickup:

The legendary P-90 – introduced in the early 1950s – is Gibson’s truly legendary singlecoil pickup, and offers the soulful, classic tone that only a P-90 can. Delivering more warmth than a standard singlecoil pickup, with higher output and sweet treble response, the P-90 continues to be one of the most popular pickups today, offering a distinct and powerful tone that remains unmatched in the face of relentless impersonation.
