    Gibson SG Junior Identification Help

    That's what I thought too, but you can see on the picture the "Les Paul" writing on the headstock is missing, and I think they wrote Les Paul from '61 to '63 ?

    Gibson SG Junior Identification Help

    Hi there, I've got an eye on a beautiful 60's SG Junior, but the seller is not 100% of the year it was made. I've got some pics and a serial number so I'd appreciate if anyone could help on this one! He also says the nut width is 1 9/16 which I believe must be post-1965, but the pots (that may...

    SG Junior and Special questions

    Cool, thanks a lot for your help Kris. You seem to be the SG Junior guru in here :thumb: The owner replaced the bridge for some reasons. Also, the guitar feels a bit hard to play in the beginning - I'm struggling to do perfect pitch bends haha. I think I'm gonna put the original bridge back to...

    I talked to the guy, I can have it for £2,300 (around 2,900 USD) posted and insured on friday. Is it a fair price?

    SG Junior and Special questions

    Yeah... The guy said it had a nut width of 1 9/16. I've never trued that but I guess I'll get used to it? Worst case if it's really annoying I can re sell it.

    SG Junior and Special questions

    I'm really confused about the nut width and neck profiles on SG's in the 60's. I like beefy, rounded necks (for example 59 necks) - but I don't like very big "shoulders" (maybe that's what the nut width is all about?)

    SG Junior and Special questions

    Hey all, I'm looking to buy an SG with P90 (either one or two) and a vibrola. I was thinking of the Juniors. I had a 61 SG Junior but I sold it a few months ago because the neck was extremely thin, which I don't like. So I guess I'm looking for a '65 to '69 Special or Junior? How is the...

    Soon To Be NGD - VOS Singlecut '57 Jr

    Yes it's a 2006, the seller mentionned it was a 2006 when I contacted him, but that's not the question haha. :thumb: What do you mean the finish? Also it weights 8 lbs, is that a lot compared to the average weight of juniors?

    Soon To Be NGD - VOS Singlecut '57 Jr

    Yeah, like the bends are not that easy and it's pretty difficult to play, maybe it's just a matter if habit. I'll take her for a good set up anyways. However I'm a bit disappointed in the way that I wanted a very beefy one, -6034 ballsy like the 59 DC I tried a few weeks ago, it was amazing...

    Soon To Be NGD - VOS Singlecut '57 Jr

    Very nice guitars guys. I got mine, it's very good and it is in beautiful condition. However it is a little bit harder too play than I thought, it's pretty hard to get along with it in my opinion and normally I don't really have problems with that! The previous owner was in a Ozzy Ozbourne...

    Soon To Be NGD - VOS Singlecut '57 Jr

    Hi there! So I was gassing for a Singlecut Junior for a long time and tried a few original 50's Juniors but buying one of these in the UK is very difficult - they're very rare and very expensive (found two for around £5000 each). So I looked at the Historics versions and they look pretty...

    56 Les Paul Junior - Is it fake ?!

    You guys were all right haha, I feel so stupid. The guy answered - he prefers to send it to me because he is "very busy". Thanks a lot for your help!
