I've wanted a Les Paul Junior type guit for a while. When this came up on local classifieds and the owner (girl who never learnt to play) accepted my offer of $Au1000 I couldn't resist. Slugger neck. It's a one trick pony, but it's a raucous good trick. 2010, basically unmarked. The Burstbucker spits on your boot and says 'hold my beer' Least expensive USA built Signature model and it seems about the only one worth more now then new.
