I really don't see how this is much better than a plain old junior. Yes it's cool

Yeah cool, but ouch on the price!

I guess since they are Custom Shop, so that’s gonna jack up the price, but dang, they’re like 4x the price of a normal (GUSA) Junior. No thanks.

Nice concept but I paid around $3,500 for a Custom Shop Jr. a couple years ago. Will these sound much different?

not a bad idea but lose the fugly pickguard on these, i think i would stick with a junior if i was looking for single pup....have not checked the pricing but based on comments, no need to..

I want one. I just can’t justify (or afford] spending that kind of coin on a Junior. Wonder how much they want for the “prototype” with tobacco sunburst finish?

I could modify a Les Paul Melody Maker because it already has a carved top, or have a carved top added to a regular Junior. Wouldn't cost $6,400.

Music Zoo offers great stuff and that's a great guitar just not for $6000+

That's a $3500 - $3900 guitar.

Saw those in the email yesterday. Cool, but way too much $$$ - I'll stick with my Les Paul CM or Jr.

Simple ripoff. Typical old-style Custom body, all the frills removed, simpler finish, and one P90 for double the dollars. Classic "limited edition" markup for collectors. That actually pretty much a "partspaul" with mainstream Gibson components, most of them budget, put together into what we see. As for the tone, it sounds really effected in the intro section, and all of the rest sounds like every guitar ever depending on the amp. Even if the MSRP is super-inflated and dealers ask $3K, it's still a hose job.

While still pricey with the carved top and binding, I could see $3500 tops but leave off that stupid pickguard!!

As soon as I saw Music Zoo I knew the $ would be stupid......but I didn't think that stupid.
