The Les Paul Junior was first introduced in 1954 as a more affordable “student model,” the little sibling to the Les Paul model. Since that time it has become a no-nonsense favorite of countless punk and garage rockers, beloved for its straight-on power and playability. It’s of little surprise that this utilitarian instrument should appeal to the premier punk rocker of his generation, and Billie Joe Armstrong has used a Gibson Les Paul Junior right from the very start of his tenure with Green Day. In honor of Billie Joe’s achievement in taking the punk ethos, attitude and energy right to the top of the mainstream without once compromising his vision, Gibson USA presents the Billie Joe Armstrong Les Paul Junior Double Cut, a great partner to the original single-cutaway Billie Joe Armstrong Les Paul Junior, and a guitar that is primed to get you straight into no fuss, no frills rock ’n’ roll.

We sincerely apologize to our fans, but unfortunately due to illness Billie Joe has been hospitalized, and we regretfully must cancel our performance in Bologna, Italy this evening. We are beyond devastated and will make it up to you when we come back next summer.
