Gibson Les Paul Jr.


Neil's first electric guitar was a used Gibson Les Paul Junior purchased for him by his mother. In 1963, after receiving repeated shocks from the guitar, Neil destroyed the guitar by smashing it against a wall in a basement in Winnipeg.

During the 2007, 2008 and 2009 Electric Band tours, Neil returned to the Les Paul Junior, performing with three different vintage copies. The first was a sunburst 1956 of Larry Cragg's, described by Cragg as a "really rude, in-your-face killer." The second and third, also from Larry, are cherry red copies. Each feature a single P-90 single coil pickup and simple volume and tone controls.

The Les Paul Junior can be heard in performance on Dirty Old Man & Spirit Road and Neil's vintage Squires instrumental, The Sultan.
