Help Please - very unusual LP Junior needs ID

Bass Bowel Blaster

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks - I have this pretty unusual LP Junior Special, I've never seen one like it, Gold/Silver/Green wierd paintjob, silver is the base coat judging by the overspray in the rear cavity.


Rear Cavity has a large 2 pickup style cover and cavity, not the usual small cover.


Paint has a beautiful crackle/aged finish.


Gibson tuners are color matched to the paint (might just be a coincidence).


Plays great, sounds great, all my Gibson owning friends love it, but what the heck is it ???


Gibson did not produce any Juniors in '83, or so I've been told.


Any help greatly appreciated, love it and it plays great but it's a bit of a mystery!












Thanks for any help !!
