    New BJA Junior. 2.2k

    I showed this new guitar and the case to a local female guitarist in a rock band and she loves the case and the guitar - she said that this combo will be highly desirable to female guitarists. Speaking of which, are there any approximate figures for the % of members here who are women?

    NGD -- SG Junior

    That guitar is a blast! I owned one. The 63 neck is slightly thicker than the 61 slim taper, and I love the 63 profile.

That gap is among the reasons why the 1958-60 units are so valuable. If they had stayed in production (even concurrently with the SG) there would...

    Guitars are meant to be played, at least in my opinion. So play away, and be aware of your gear security surroundings.

    Changing P90 to Hum - will it fit

    The Seymour Duncan Custom Shop makes humbuckers under P90 covers - dogear and soapbar. I have been very pleased with them in both iterations. In fact, I have a Custom Shop SG Special that has an Antiquity in the bridge position and in a few days I will have an Antiquity in the neck position...

    Acrylic Painted Les Paul - Recommended Sealant?

    Thanks! I am moving very slowly on this - the guitar has been like this for almost ten years. I'm following up with the artist to see if the paint was water or oil - based.
