The one on the left is a 1960 ES-140. On the right is a 1958 Les Paul Jr 3/4 size. The Les Paul Jr is much more playable FWIW. Very narrow neck on the ES-140.

22.75" scale. That's all I need to know. Too small. Looks cool, tho.

I think it's a ES-140T (thin). There was a thick model too, but as thick was considered normal at the time, there was no letter at the end.

Those 3/4 necks make the guitars look a bit toyish. Nice finishes though.
