I'm looking for a used Epiphone Les Paul Junior '57 reissue TV yellow. I've seen a few on this site and I was wondering if there were any deals to be had. Thanks for the info!
Yah, I had registered a while ago, but I haven't really viewed this site. Is there a search feature? I'll check out the for sale section, I'm still learning my way around this forum. I got offered to buy an Epiphone '57 reissue Les Paul Junior in vintage sunburst for $250 on craigslist, but I'd rather have a TV yellow one. Thanks for the help!
Dude, if it's the one in Danvers with the Lollar and Tonepros bridge, you'd better snag it while you can, you won't see a deal like that again for a dog's age if ever. The case and hardware alone are worth $250, it's like getting the Jr for free.
If I still lived in Boston it'd be so gone. Epiphone Les Paul jr 57 reissue
I think the '57 RI LesPaul Junior' had been made later than 06.....
IIRC it was around 2009-10
It concerns me greatly that it's going to be at your house instead of mine!
Wow, small world... I have been in contact with the owner for the past few days. It looks like i will be picking it up Monday as he is not available this weekend. I really don't need a new guitar right now, but I am pretty sure that this is a no-brainer at this price. If/When I need to move it, I can't imagine I would lose on this.
Are you saying that you are not sure if the sn makes sense for production of the set-neck Lp Jr's? Unfortunately the wiki doesn't mention the years of the 57 Re-Issue. Les Paul Junior - The Unofficial Epiphone Wiki
Should I be worried? I trust the collective minds of this forum to know more about these things than anyone else!
The one you're looking at seems to be one of the earliest, Jan 06
and i fixed the wiki
though the tuners do look like early korean craftmanship
Yes the '57 RIs came with Grover kidney beans.Yah... I did notice that. As long as it holds a tune, I will deal with a crooked tuner. I am pretty sure that this originally came with Grovers... I imagine that whoever installed the Klusons tried to re-use the hole that was already drilled from the stock tuners.
