Quickly after the release of the original Les Paul, Gibson started thinking about diversification. These thoughts were especially stimulated by Fender`s approach. Fender had affordable guitars which could be repaired easily. With Les Paul being their basic model and being very expensive, Gibson`s management and luthiers came up with the Junior concept. It was a flat-top, stripped-down version of the luxurious LP. Junior became an instant hit and it remained in catalog to this very day. Current incarnation of the Junior comes with a solid, single-cut body made completely of mahogany. Bridge section is very simple, it features a lone wrap around bridge. P-90 single coil pickup is installed in the bridge position. Set in mahogany neck is topped with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard.
