    At last I pulled a trigger on '59 Junior, and I must say it's a special piece that is superior in the WOOD aspect than all other Gibsons I posess. Really enjoyable neck profile also :cool:

    Thanks everybody! Guitar plays and sounds really nice. If it gets as much attention from me as now, in a few years it will need fret job done)

    It has Faber compensated and locking bridge installed, and I see that it's a necessary measure because I couldn't get right intonation on a wraparound. The scale was wrong on the treble strings, so it's good I can adjust it. I wonder if it's common on these Juniors or I just got one with wrong holes))

    welcome to the club
    i agree, the neck on my 59 is by far the best shape i have had in my hands through the years
    my junior intonates fine with the original bridge but not a deal breaker either way
