Duncan Detonator humbucker, dunlop straploks, coil tap via push pull, Fender TBX tone control, Chrome gibby style tulip tuners, Totally refinished in vintage white from the gloss black it once was. The neck has been sanded and shaped to my liking.

 

Oh, and numerous cigarette burns and a burn hole due to drunk nights after a gig.

 

Never use your guitar's back control cavity as an ashtray, I did and it aint pretty. Ive gota burn hole through the plastic cavity cover.

 

haha, youth.

 

This beast weighs as much as a LP custom. IDK how that happened.

I envy you all! Brian, is that the $78 Christmas sale Jr.? Sweet, one and all!

 

There is this really special one on ebay, but I know it'll go over $400.00, the '57 reissues in yellow always do. The guy did a nice job making one of his own (see pics).

There is another "57 in a burst listed for $380

Then there is this one. What is he thinking? $200 + $72 to ship for a used bolt-on neck? Am I missing something here? This is the same one as MF's new $129, right?

Anyways, I'm happy for you all and enjoy! Maybe I'll have one of my own by next summer.

Yep, it's the Black Friday special, er I mean Junior.

 

The folks selling that Epi junior must not have done their homework. I regularly see them going for $75 on CL, and I recently saw a black one for $50. Or you could wait until the next Black Friday.. If I can find a nice '57 reissue, I'll send you mine (less P94 and bridge) for real cheap...

Thanks Brian! You're a doll! So, I hear there's a sweet Yellow "57 on e-bay!:- Just kidding! Hopefully the job thing will work out this year and I'll be able to get one of my own. Junior, that is.

Yeah I'm bummed out - there was a sunburst '57 reissue at a GC in NJ that sat there over the holidays.

 

I had every intention of going to get it THIS WEEK' date=' but it's gone now.

 

Aargh.

 

At this rate, I might have to buy (gasp) a GIBSON JR....[/quote']

If I may ask, what were they asking for it (the '57 Reissue)? I only have ebay to go by as I've not a decent store around me to see them in person.

Oh boy do I miss the "MIJ Lacquer Series" Les Paul Junior that I bought last year. Such a perfect looking guitar, played so well, and with the addition of a full Vintage RS wiring/electronics kit, and a Lollar P90. This guitar rocked so hard, and in a moment of stupidity sold her. Noooooo!!!!!!

Thanks Sheila, that's not a bad price (for eBay). The one I was looking at in CG was $350, no case. I assumed they would let it go for $300, that's really more the going price for a stock '57 RI sans case...

 

BTW, for someone in the Chicago area, this could be a good deal if they can be tyalked down a bit: http://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/msg/1553193760.html
