    Almost perfect....... if it had a '50s neck it'd already be in my cart, still, it's as cool as bees knees

    Those look really cool! Interesting choice by Gibson on the logo, though. Congrats!

    I wish they would have done the 3 on side plate on the tuners. But I will probably do that down the road on mine.

    It's a beauty. The price surprised me but it's a beauty. The case is worth $100.

    I bought a black NOS 2012 model from Chicago Music Exchange in 2013 for about $700 but it had a gig bag so I bought a nice case immediately and the red with the beautiful wood grain looks prettier than my black model. I mean pretty in the most masculine and bad ass sort of way.

    The 2018 is a winner.

    They seem to be doing a LP Jr the same way but with a 50”s neck, same tuners and logo and vintage style neck joint.

    That's a nice guitar. I love 1 PU SGs and Juniors because they don't have the PU rout at the base of what is already a bad neck joint, and I'm usually on the bridge PU anyway. I love the clean, open space. The list price on that guitar is obscene for what it is, so it's good to see the big discount. Still not cheap. The PLEK'd Juniors I've played have been amazingly playable -- fantastic, really -- and that's one of a relatively few things that Gibson is getting right these days. Also nice = the real, complete finish, rather than the unfilled fake-vintage, cost-cutting satin ripoff they've been promoting. It'll go from glinty to lustrous soon enough!
