    Epiphone '57 Reissue Les Paul Junior in rare Cherry finish. "The original pickup has been replaced with a hum cancelling soapbar pickup. Please note that this guitar is a factory second, as shown by the "2nd" stamp and defaced serial number on the back of the headstock."

    This is the only Cherry '57 Reissue I've ever seen. I've seen a lot of them in Sunburst or TV Yellow. Pretty cool. :cool:

    Here's my '01 LP Jr. I picked up a few weeks ago for a really good price. Picked this one up at a pawnshop. It came loaded with a Rio Grande Bluesdawg P-90 that sounds amazing.

    At last a genuine LP Junior owner, and a heck of a find by texsunburst59!

    Not too many black juniors have come my way. Hmmm. I like it. Hope she sounds as good as she looks.

    Nice one! Enjoy.

    Thanks Tonyj.

    I hadn't ever really seen a black Gibson Jr. out in the wild .

    This was the 1st one I've ever come across.

    The neck leans toward a 60's style neck and is REALLY comfortable and fast.

    The pickup sounds very good in this guitar. I don't know what the original Gibson would have sounded like,but I would think it couldn't sound any better than this one.

    I'm sure this one's going to be a lifer in my guitar collection.

    2009 Gibson Les Paul Junior for right-handed player converted into a left-handed guitar.
    Upgrades: CTS 500K reverse pots (i.e. left handed) and .022 orange drop capacitor and new wrap around bridge that can be intonated. One of the tuning machines has been replaced with a generic Gibson-like one.

    Gordon Smith guitars. Started in the 1970s in England and still handmade and affordable. It looks like the punks of the late-1970s started using them and they are still going today.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordon-Smith_Guitars



    This is their Junior and Special guitar called the GS:

    http://www.gordonsmithguitars.com/shop/guitars/gs/

    Junior = GS1
    Special = GS2

    You can choose everything to your spec: body thickness, P-90 or humbucker, body wood, neck wood, neck profile, finish, bridge, 6 or 12 string, machine heads / tuners, string gauge, 13 color choices, right or left handed, cutaway style, etc.

    Guitarists known to have used Gordon-Smith guitars include:

    GS1


    GS1 through a Swart tube amp


    GS2 with coil taps


    GS2

    This fellow says near the end that you can send in your preferred pickups, etc. when they're building your guitar and they will put them on the guitar for you. :)

    Epiphone SG Junior vs. Gibson SG Junior.

    Both guitars have a single P-90 pickup. The Epiphone has a GFS P-90 and bolt-on neck.

    I gave up on finding a Gibson, or even an Epiphone for a reasonable price...
