Never played one but, if it sounds anything like my SG Junior, it'll have bright, midrange-centered tone with lots of plucky attack. Personally, I think both of those guitars you linked to are ridiculously overpriced; if they were regular old Juniors, I'd be willing to pay $800 for one but, as CS and VOS, maybe $1,500 but even that's too much IMO for a slab body guitar with one pickup that basically does one sound with some variations of that one sound if you include the tone/mud knob.

 

My SG Junior that I got for $250 at a clearance sale back in the early 90's:

A very cool guitar but a one trick pony.

I just purchased the regular ol' satin cherry Gibby Junior for $800 in January, and modded the hell out of it. And after dumping $700 into it, she plays and sounds beautiful.

 

However, I did get a chance to play one of those VOS Juniors at a GC, and they are pretty. But there's a bit of extra wood where the cutaway and neck join together, and it makes upper fret access uncomfortable (for me). The $800 Gibby Jr. version doesn't have that extra wood by the cutaway and neck. Very easy to play in the upper register.

I see that the not-VOS model is more expensive..why is that? Is it a better guitar, better pickups?

EDIT: I also see, when I compare the two models, that the normal 60's model has got p-90's, and the VOS model SINGLE COIL P90's. Is there a difference?
