• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

WTB Single Cut Les Paul Junior

Back in 2007 I played a '56 Les Paul Junior at the Santa Monica Guitar Show. That guitar has never left me, and I am now in the position to buy one. At the time I couldn't justify a month's salary for a guitar, but being in a better place brings me back. I am in interested in a 54-58 single cut Junior, no head stock repairs but a solid guitar with original electronics. I may go for a re-fin if it is the right one, but I want a player just like the one I held at the show. I now kick myself for not pulling the trigger that day, but hope there is something out there. BTW that was the year that Phil X did a bunch of demo videos for the Bursts at the show. One highlight was visiting Ganzler's booth and getting to play a burst through a '50s champ. Never could have afforded that but he obliged.
