Really, really nice. If this had been around a couple months ago when I got my Special I probably would have gotten it instead.

In Canada it's the same price as the USA LP Special.
I would have to really think about which I'd prefer.
But I'm buying a second Tele, so I'm out :cool:

I've been eyeing that too. Love the aged hardware and satin finish.

I almost preordered ones of these from Sweetwater back in May, but once they told me the ship date probably wouldn't be until September or October I decided to pass. Now I'm seconding guessing that decision, thanks. :hmm:

They say satin finish but it looks glossy in those pics.

Is the satin finish the only difference between this one and the normal Junior?

I know this model is spec'd with Alnico 3, but I thought Gibson was still using Alnico V in P90's?

Did they recently change over to Alnico 2?

Yes, it seems current P-90s are Alnico 5, at least that's what the Gibson store site says.
I read a incorrect article, it seems.

Watched the first 25 minutes of the premiere - until he was well into the Q&A session. Wish he would have played the guitar. Sharp looking guitar and the satin finish does the trick.

In most every book I read, it appears that the 56 Junior had the gold bell knobs, not speed knobs. The latter were standard on the 1955 models. But of course, being a $100 guitar at the time, at the bottom of the Gibson food chain, they may have put speed knobs on the 56 just because they ran out of the others on that particular day.
