'59 Les Paul Jr. on Craigslist... signed by les paul!! maybe

what do you guys think about this? Seems awfully low priced no? Not original tuners and the case looks interesting... could it be a real vintage lifton case? I thought the Jr's came with very flimsy, rudimentary cases then

Vintage 1959 Les Paul Jr. Signed

It's a 3/4 scale junior. Not sure on the year though.

Crazy pickguard too.

I just don't think they are telling "the whole story."

You know what? I'm a maroon - that's not a 3/4 scale.

Odd pickguard though, isn't it? I haven't the foggiest about the case, but I've never seen any old Lifton cases with that satin sheet cover.

The case is a '90 brown case, it's not a 3/4 and if you are interessed, check under the strange pickguard...We hate bad surprise...

even with the changed bridge, tuners, refret, (has it been refinished? does it have the serial number?), still seems like a good price to me.

I'd ask for a few more pics, run them by BCR/Greg - he knows more about Juniors than anyone on the planet I think.

Yes it's odd. I don't think I want to investigate this one. Too many things are off.

Thanks guys, I've got sufficient feedback to back off this one.

Betcha there are routed pockets for a neck pickup and controls under that oversized pickguard.
