2011 Gibson Les Paul Junior Questions!!!

I just bought a new 2011 gibson lp jr in pelham blue!
I was googling around and I saw that all of the other ones I see have black knobs with silver reflector tops. The knobs on my guitar ar all black.
Do i have something special?

Any information will be helpful.

Thanks guys!
Erik

Gibson made several versions of lp jr in 2011 - regular, 58 reissue (non custom shop), limited edition, etc.
Gibson USA 58 reissue come with rosewood fingerboard, all black knobs, satin finish.


Regular Gibson USA LP Jr from end of 2011 has obeche fretboard, knobs with silver reflector tops and come with high gloss finish.

the 58 reissue also has a 60s profile neck for some bizarre (and inconvenient for me) reason.

They call it "chunky Vintage C". A profile is a little different and a little thicker than regular 60s with genuine rosewood fingerboard. I love the feeling of this neck. Mine is Satin Cherry from 2011, the same as in this video. Extremely well resonant guitar!

Re: 2011 Gibson Les Paul Junior Questions!!!

When I bought mine it was advertised as a 60s st neck. It feels significantly thinner than a 50s in any case and I just can't play it for any length of time. Shame really, cos it's gonna have to go...

I like 50s neck more than 60s, but this satin finish neck suits me well too...

Gibson Les Paul Junior 1958 re-issue in Satin Cherry - Nevada Music UK - YouTube
I have this one...black knobs as well.

Although I'm in denial about it, it really has become my #1. Of course its the cheapest guitar I own!

They use whatever is cost effective and/or what's lying around.

@stratlt,

Mine has a high gloss finish, but a darker fingerboard.

Then perhaps it is 2011 Gibson Les Paul Junior Limited Edition.
