    The SG Junior have never been in the shops in Denmark. People would probably buy them if they where advertised in the facebook group "Danske Guitarister" = Danish Guitarists. Monday i will receive my Epiphone EB-0 SG Bass Short scale. And no i do not need more than the jack and the pup. i have a five band eq. I call it my left hand ;)

    I have two that I own, one I built and one is a tele with the neck pickup ripped out so now an esquire. the tele has a 5 way strat switch for serious tonal diversity, no tone/tone/tone with basscut/tone with cocked wah/cocked wah no tone. The one I built is made up of spare parts I had lying around, humbucker, neck, volume pot, output jack and a 2 planks of wood glued together for the body resembles a cricket bat will post the mandatory photos soon. By the way I'd choose my esquire.

    Sollophonic: This is a work of art and simplicity that i like to do with my own instruments. I do not use pots, but i solder a capacitor to modd the tone a little. One solution to modd the tone could be a two way switch for full blast in one position and treble bleed in the other position.

    My Fender Esquire Custom GT is a go-to guitar. Solid mahogany set-neck with a carved top.


    My home-built that has become known as King Kool (after the name of the headstock set-piece) is a lot of fun too.

    I need to update my pictures. I gave the Pro II to an old friend who served some time in Iraq and needed a guitar to work some things out. I know people love to hate PRS, BUT I find nothing but love when it comes to my my SE ONE!

    My modded Hondo Guitarlin copy, GFS Surf 90 and string-thru-back Strat bridge. Wired straight, all switches bypassed. Solid, non-masonite body.

    Definitely Esquire. Only bridge pickup that really floats my boat. Anything else, neck or neck/middle. Way back in the 70s, I had the rare honor of playing a Fender Hand Carved LTD. It was advertised in the '72 catalog but only 36 were ever produced. Neck pickup only, and pickup and knows were mounted on the pickguard. Tone and sustain all day! The Holy Grail of jazz guitars. Once in a blue moon one can be found on ebay for a mere $20,000.00-$30,000.00 in good condition. Don't think I want one quite that bad!

    The catalog photo looks like it has a broken bridge, but apparently it's supposed to be that way.

    An Esquire with a Duncan Jerry Donahue pickup and Eldred mod is close perfect for what I do. YMMV.
