    Definitely not.

    I sold the white BJA Junior I bought earlier this year to fund another guitar. With Gibson support telling me that there was no plan for a Junior this year, I gave up waiting for an USA Junior.

    Went to check the new CS Specials (the double cuts and the single cuts) online, and the prices are outrageous (for that amount of money I'd go vintage...).

    Found a used CS Junior Reissue for less than half the price of these Specials, and less than some LE 2016 USA Juniors or LE 2016 USA Specials are selling for. Received it today and needless to say, I'm happy. Plus it came with an OX4 p90 (da*n, they're good :eek:). A couple of marks here and there, but I can't complain, it DOES sound good.

    Graaaaaaaaiiiiin:

    Don't know if it's gonna stay as the guitars I buy used tend to go first when I need to sell. We'll see.

    Really nice :thumb:

    How does it compare to the BJA? Some say the BJA and CS are practically identical.

    Congrats and HNGD :applause:

    Yeah right :laugh2:

    Thanks Donal :D.

    Regarding the BJA comparison, they are close in apparence, but this CS is a little heavier than my BJA, the frets are smoother (but the seller polished them before shipping - super cool guy living in Switzerland too btw :cool:). The neck is beefier on the CS, and the finish is better than the one I had on the white BJA I bought this year.
    Sound wise, it's on a whole new level compared to the BJA. That's probably because of the pickup, I put a Fralin in my black BJA, and this one has an OX4. Man it just roars, it's pretty amazing tbh.


    Look who's talking? :rofl: You know, I am seriously thinking about adding that line in my signature: "I was there when Donal only had seven guitars in his banner" :laugh2:.

    TERRIFIC. CONGRATS. This is probably going to elicit LOTS of :rofl: but I'm thinking I might be at the "no more" stage myself. :io:I've started paring back.

    I keep ignoring the fact that the number of guitars I owned went up exponentially since signing up to MLP, and coming back for more triggers day after day after day after day :laugh2:.

    There is a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black!

    And you should add that line to your sig! That would be awesome. Or in your avatar!:naughty:
