Epiphone's number one selling model!
The Les Paul Junior was first introduced by our legendary Kalamazoo factory in 1954 and was intended as an affordable way for beginners to get the look, sound, and feel of a real Les Paul. However, the Les Paul Junior quickly became a legend of its own. Throughout the years and in all its many incarnations, the Les Paul Junior has been an on-stage favorite for artists like Leslie West of Mountain, Keith Richards, Paul Westerberg of the Replacements, and John Lennon, who all embraced the Les Paul Junior for its lighter weight, commanding sound, and all-mahogany body. Today, the Epiphone Les Paul Junior is still the best way for beginners to get started on a full-size guitar with real vintage Les Paul tone. And if the Les Paul Junior’s rock and roll history wasn’t enough to convince you, check out Rocksmith™, the breakthrough guitar video game which features the Epiphone Les Paul Junior as its go-to guitar!
