Guitar of the Week (May 5, 2014)

Here is my 1955 Gibson Les Paul Jr.  I picked it up in 2000 at the Philly Guitar Show.  While I don't remember who I purchased it from, I remember going there on Saturday morning right after the show opened.  I found this pretty quickly.  Played it, made an offer and got turned down.  It was too early in the weekend to give such a discount.  So…I returned Sunday afternoon about 30 minutes before the show was closing and to my luck, it was still there.  Now the dealer was ready to work with me on the price…It has a great, punchy P90 and a nice chunky neck.  Love the finish checking, too!
