Since everybody is starting clubs I thought we should have a Les Paul Junior Club too.

I just bought my Junior from another member of this forum,thanks man!

I love this guitar!

Gibson called these, discontinued models, "Junior Lites!" Although...technically,
I think they're more "Specials," as they are 2-pickup versions.
But...since they were monikered "Junior's"....Here they are:

Both, had TP-6 tail pieces, and Tulip tuners installed...(Gold, on the Black one, obviously)...
Othewise, they're "Stock!"

I dig this thread guys! There's something sexy about the simplicity of those strip-downed axes!
Congrats to all the owners!

This post brings back the memories. The second guitar I owned was a 55
LP Jr. It also had the original finish removed and was stained walnut. I
had it painted white and put a Mini Humbucker in. Fit perfectly with no
routing. The P90 fed back to much into my Ampeg VT40 and V-4 amps.
I still have the P90 but traded the Jr. for a Ibenez Rocket Roll.

I have to say I'm thoroughly disappointed that nobody has posted a TV Yellow yet!

Hey there,
To me, no Gibson collection would be complete without a "junior" in it. They have a unique and distinct sound; however, that being said.....
I am also into "variety" and having the flexibility to play a huge range of songs. To me, this means owning at least one Les Paul (Standard, Custom, Historic....doesn't matter.), one Junior and maybe, if money allows, SG or other cool and unique Gibson (ie: Firebird, V etc.).
This list, to me, has to include a Fender (Strat & Tele), any Gretsch semi-hollow "rock-a-billy" tone guitar and a 12 string electric.
I know this may come across wrong; however, you asked a very good and honest question....so I thought that I would give you my honest answer.
My opinion: If you only have limited funds, you may want a more "versatile" guitar to get it started. Although the Junior has a killer tone....it is just that. One tone (or a bit more with 2 pick up's).
Just my 2Cents
Steve

To me, no Gibson collection would be complete without a "junior" in it. They have a unique and distinct sound which I love and use a lot in my cover band; however, that being said.....

My opinion: If you only have limited funds like most of us (I am old and started buying guitars a long time ago.), you may want a more "versatile" guitar to start filling out his collection. Although the Junior has a killer tone...a really killer tone......it is just that.....one basic tone (or a bit more with 2 pick up's). I might be looking for a nice Les Paul Standard in a cool sunburst finish since you mentioned the Junior's sunburst.

just bought a 58 reissue junior in vintage sunburst
definately best guitar I've ever owned and one of the nicest I've played
buy one
they are excellent value - sound great - it's a real Gibson!
lot more sounds than one tone can be coaxed out of it
set amp to stun - use guitar volume pot to adjust - about 6 for rythym - 10 for lead
tone pot changes character of p90
stripped down features make you a better player
buy one
