i have this think for 3 pups and wanting something different. I have been wanting to try my hand at routing and felt the jr was a great candidate. what really makes this a fun guitar to play now is the pups and tonal potions. The pups are awesome. gfs did a great job on these.

 

to be honest. if i where to do again i would not install a toggle. really is not needed.

good reasons... why is the toggle not needed? can you play thru all three at once?

I think it's because with 3 vols and 1 tone, you can just use the vols to mix pickups.

that's actually pretty cool. i take back my initial thoughts about turning a Jr into a 3pickup monster... sounds way cooler now.

I'll have to get pics of my Epi LP JR project tomorrow. I picked up a JR over pres day sale at guitar center. $89. Today I made a 2 piece mahogony body for it. Routed it for a P90. Ordered a GFS dogear. I'll get some pics tomorrow. Should be a real screamer. I already leveld, radiused and polished the frets. Fun project...

aj' date=' do u have a project u want to do? [/quote']

already done my junior project.

working on cosmetics on my squier strat to 70's fender strat relic project

waiting on money to re-fix the neck on my no name LP DC special project.

 

also, when i get some money i'd like to do another junior. maybe the white or the black. white would be pretty rad, and black with a tortoise shell pick guard and gold knobs would be awesome too. either way i want to do the adjustable wrap-around tail piece so it's easier to intonate and keep in tune.

i'm in the UK, and i've wanted one of these for a while, think my epi SG might have to make way, although my SG has a wire that's came away from the input which needs re-soldering Epiphone SG G400, wrong place to brag about it but anyway.

Came with a stock Epi P90. It's a 97 so I assume back then they did with the Juniors. Not like today when you get thos crappy pickups. I could be wrong, Im sure someone will correct me.

I was at GC, just the other day, and there were about 6 of the LP Jr. guitars for sale on the floor. It was difficult to walk away from the sunburst.

 

Seems these are getting hard to find, online, but I spot them all over the GC showroom floor.
