The Gibson SG Junior was a solid-bodied electric guitar manufactured by Gibson from the early 1960s to the late 1960s. Like its earlier sister, the Gibson Les Paul Junior, it had been created for sale at a lower price. It is known for its single P-90 treble pickup, and the stopbar bridge instead of the two-bar tune-o-matic bridge. From 1961 to 1963, it was branded with the "Les Paul Junior" name. In 1963, "Les Paul" was removed from the headstock and it was officially called the SG Junior. From 1965 to 1971, it had a generic SG pickguard with a soapbar P90 rather than the original dog-ear. It was discontinued in 1971. The late 1960s version has been re-issued by Gibson since 2003. In 2011, Gibson re-issued the Junior closer to its early 60's incarnation.
