    Welcome to the MLPF :wave:

    You mention looking at one right now... dont suppose we could take a peak at that?

    If you have any trouble loading pics here just sing out, its best to store them on an external website and just link them into a post using the "insert image" button [where you adjust your font in the new/reply post etc - your looking for the yellow icon with a mountain on it] - hope im not being too vague......

    Welcome again and hope to see some nice Lesters - or Plexi's? :dude:

    [Edit: your first name isnt Norman by any chance is it ;) ]

    Three Red Devils. 58, 59 and 60.

    I get why people feel the need for a neck pickup. But as gigging machines, vintage juniors are hard to beat. My band plays pubs and bars with poor acoustics where a sound check is as rare as hen's teeth. I'm happy if I get one decent tone. A vintage junior through a quality tube amp never fails me.

    Glad that Mike Bowen posted pics of his many fine double cut examples. The Junior story would not be complete without both the SC and the DC, and no owner should deny himself the fun of owning both. Some may like the aesthetics and sturdiness of the SC, but there are tonal differences between the two.

    Gibson Les Paul Jr. |

    One day, when we know enough about instrument modeling and pickup interaction with the wood, we may be able to tell why the shape and weight of a guitar, and possibly, how the neck is joined to the body, can dramatically influence the holistic sound of the instrument. Were the designers at Gibson geniuses in the 1950's, or did they accidentally discover the secret of sound, now essentially lost to us decades later? Again, this happened with the violin and Stradivarius, but magically centuries later, a new formula was discovered for acoustic and electric guitars. Hope the next golden age repeats itself in my lifetime, but I doubt it.

    I wouldn't mind a Single pickup guitar, as I rarely use the neck pickup. I just roll the tone off if I need something a little warmer and less 'brittle' sounding.

    The Dwight Eliminator is the single pickup Explorer type, which is bad f'n ass..(though I truly believe a black pickup ring should be on it..:naughty:)
