2011 Les Paul Junior. Legit?

The only thing that worries me is the seller says it came stock with the white pickguard. I cannot find another via image search with a white pickguard.

Any info?

i think you are pretty safe with a jr - i've not seen any fakes and there is nothing that looks un-genuine about that one anyway. not seen one with a white pg before but that wouldnt stop me from pulling the trigger. also, with jrs not being made at the moment there seems to be a bit of demand building up recently.
so long as the price is right i say:

BUY IT!

I did end up buying it. It was an Ebay Buy It Now or Best Offer. We went back and forth on the offer a couple of times. I got a decent deal based on what others are going for.

Thanks. I really like the blue & white color combo, and am not that hung up on it being stock even though I would prefer it stock.

I will be doing a serial number check when it comes in.

Yeah looks good to me. Not a stock pickguard though, definitely aftermarket. You can usually find a genuine one on ebay for around $20-30 though.

You will not ever go wrong with a Junior. Congrats!

2010 was the last year they had Rosewood, and the 50's rounded neck.

Serial number checks out. Born on November 5th, 2011.

She's pretty. Not perfect by any means, but neither am I.
