Gibson 1958 Les Paul Junior

This 1958 was subjected to the worst imaginable fate a lefty guitar can befall; it was once converted to righty! The teen who owned it in 1960 converted it to righty by installing a full face Formica® pickguard, along with a Gretsch trapeze tailpiece and floating bridge!

It has been restored to its current state using the correct vintage parts (with the exception of the pickguard and pickup mounting screws) and is once again making music.
