    There seems to be a lot of affection for the cheap Epi Juniors around here!

    I got one for my son about 18 months ago as a cheap guitar for him to learn on and I find myself picking it up quite a lot and playing it around the house. It's nothing like my tele and strats but I find that I enjoy it a lot.

    Can you get chrome covers to fit over the standard humbucker? This is the only thing I don't like about it. It just looks kind of half finished to me! And I do think it affects the tone as, without the metal cover, the slightly metallic ring to the notes is missing - to my ears anyway.

    I think the best thing you can do is to by another pup, the epi stockpups are crap ime. Maybe a hum sized p90.

    Old thread, but yours looks exactly like mine (Dream 90 pickup, Graphtech nut). Sorry for the crappy picture...

    Another owner of a Epi Jr here. A doublecut yellow Korean that I love. I wouldn't call it TV yellow though... It sort of reminds of TV yellow, but that's about it! :lol:

    I love my '62 SG Junior! Someone stenciled "Butch" on the trussrod cover, which seems like a good name for a Junior.

    I am thinking of doing my next build like this, a P-90 on a Tele. How does it sound? Can you post a parts list, please?

    Here's my new 2011 junior. I love the Pelham Blue gloss finish, and the P90 kicks some serious tushy. Great no frills rock and roll machine.

    May be in the LP Jr club soon, assuming my buddy will part with his. I've done a bit of research and I have noticed that on some models the bridges are angled and straight across on others. The one I'm looking at this week is a 2010 and can't recall anything about the bridge. Any info on this at all? Has this model changed much over the years?

    Can't help ya a lot here but I just sold an '01 junior and got a question from an ebay member asking about this. All I know is my '01 gloss model did have the angled bridge, the treble side post was a little closer to the pickup than the bass side post...
