Echoing the instantly-recognisable Les Paul Junior design, the SG Junior offers a similar no-frills rock ‘n’ roll experience. A Mahogany double-bill in Vintage Cherry with a single handwired P90 Dog-Ear pickup – what more could you want?
Body & Neck
Mahogany is used for both the body and neck. Those trademark curves and contoured edges offer an ergonomic playing experience, but nothing can stop the weighty resonance of Gibson Mahogany.
An unbound Rosewood fretboard with Slim Taper profile adds a certain smoothness to the guitar’s attack, and makes it a comfy playing experience regardless of your style. A Vintage Cherry lacquer finish quite literally polishes off the ensemble in beautifully old-school fashion.
Electronics & Hardware
At the heart of the SG Junior’s tone is the single P90 Dog-Ear in the bridge position. As the name suggests, this pickup has been handwired for a rough-around-the-edges sound. Add an Orange Drop Capacitor to the mix, and you can expect that gloriously rich snarl that’s enchanted players for over half a century.
The SG Junior’s hardware is comprised of a Graph Tech nut and compensated wraparound bridge to keep your tuning consistent. Classic sound without the associated hassle. Black Top Hat controls and that curvy Junior pickguard contrast perfectly with the eye-popping Cherry finish for the ultimate rock ‘n’ roll vibe.
