In 1965, Gibson began offering the Maestro Vibrola standard on all SG Juniors, giving players even more options with its expressive feel and simple, elegant look. From that year, we have a Junior that feels and plays as well as any other with its Vibrola adding an extra twist. A bit heavier than most, its sustain and weight give it some nice power that makes it a great rocker. It’s also a very clean guitar, with only a few dings here and there.

And, if you love it, you’ll know someone else has—a Social Security number has been scratched into the back of the body near the neck heel. This is a mark that we find on more than a few of the guitars we get, indicating that they’ve been well loved in the past. But this one has also been taken care of pretty well too. Check it out. 


Body: Mahogany with cherry finish.

Neck: Mahogany with rosewood fretboard and dot inlays. Round, narrow profile. 1 9/16" wide nut.

Pickups/Hardware: One bridge P-90, bright and percussive. Maestro Vibrola, compensated bridge. Open-back three-on-a-plate tuners with metal buttons. Chrome hardware.

Setup/Playability: The strings are at a comfy medium height, fret easily and lack buzz spots anywhere on the board. Smooth player with nice Vibrola action. Great for bends with its relatively high frets.

Cosmetic Condition: Social security number scratched in near neck heel. The body is in great shape, there's just a few checking lines around the jack and a few small dings around the edges. The neck is very clean and glossy. The headstock just has a few small spots of finish wear around the edges and is otherwise in excellent shape. This Junior looks fantastic!
