    NGD!! 1961 Gibson Les Paul Jr “minty”

    Very excited to add this to my collection. This is probably the most clean 1961 Les Paul Jr I’ve ever seen. Included in the case candy is the “Mr Dealer” tag. Extremely hot P-90, plays outstandingly! This 61 Jr was virtually unplayed! Still has the wonderful vintage smells though haha!

    Holy smokes!!!

    Can we see a picture of the ink stamp of the hang tag as well?

    You're on a real Junior kick this month! Are these local guitars?

    I imagine the 61 has a slimmer neck than your hefty 63? Any other differences?

    I know haha! I’ve certainly itched my junior itch I had. Yes a much more slim but wide neck. The 63 is a baseball bat, but I love them both. Yes, these are all local guitars. I’m done with juniors until I’m introduced to a 1957

    Wow, this really smokes! Congrats, this is really mint condition.

    How do these two SG Juniors differ tonewise?
    My diagnosis is: Hiwatt and Norlinphilia

    Thanks everyone for the Jr love! This guitar is simply amazing to me. I probably over paid but sometimes that happens. In general what would something in this condition in your opinion trade privately at? Sometimes it’s better to ask questions later after the fact if you really connect with something. Lol Just curious.. I’m scared to ask haha!

    So, which one do you like more - the 61 or the 63?

    And, what are the differences between the two?
