Well, I am finally in the Junor club now that I have an SG Junior. I was in the local branch of one of our national retailers and first of all I tried an ES 330. Nice enough but both examples I tried sounded a bit anaemic – not nearly enough guitar for the money. My 335 is far superior. There were also two nice SG Juniors. I plugged in the cherry example and what a difference! Blew the 330 into the weeds – strong, ballsy, felt alive in my hands. The other Junior was an ebony one. Lighter in weight but also a great sound. So, I'm all ready to buy when the salesman turns over the guitar and right across the back is a burn mark where some fool has rested the guitar on a rubber stand. Checked the ebony model and it has two burns, one on the body, one on the neck. The salesman said he'd give me a call if he could find another one. A week and a half later I get a call out of the blue. There's one still in its box up in Sydney if I want it. A few days later (after another eye operation) and it's mine! It's a 2011 model, lovely cherry. Fantastic sound! Really muscular. I think these are discontinued so I was very lucky.
