Gibson Billie Joe Armstrong Les Paul Junior at The Music Zoo

A new signature instrument for the Green Day frontman and Les Paul Junior Aficionado from Gibson USA!

You might remember the series of Billie Joe Armstrong Les Paul Juniors that were built by Gibson USA from 2008-2012. Originally available in classic colors like Sunburst and TV White, the guitar has been updated and renewed for 2023 in two new colors with new features! The Billie Joe Armstrong Les Paul Junior is now available in Vintage Ebony Gloss and Silver Mist, each including a wildly cool hot pink Protector case with a Leopard print interior!

What's new on the Billie Joe Armstrong Les Paul Junior?

While retaining the classic Les Paul Junior construction of mahogany bodies and neck with a rosewood fretboard, the guitar has a Billie Joe SlimTaper neck profile and the Gibson P-90DC pickup. The neck is slim, but has a bit more shoulder to it than usual which is great for getting a solid grip on power chords and rhythm playing.

The P-90 DC was designed by Gibson Master Luthier Jim DeCola, and its the latest in Gibson hum-cancelling P-90 technology. It features a modernized version of the Sidewinder Dual Coil design that was first developed by Seth Lover in 1958. It still retains P-90 clarity and airiness while reducing the 60-cycle hum you'd generally hear out of the pickup. It's great for plugging into an overdriven amp and keeping things quiet as you can!
