Hi Everyone,

Meet "Bucky." A 2001 Custom Shop Junior in Cardinal Red (named after the Wisconsin Badgers football team). A few dings and scratches but no breaks or repairs. Couple different lighting scenarios. Came with a Gibson USA case with the black shroud (very cool!). Very resonant and low action. Love it, and a keeper!

Nice.
Saw a live Badger crossing the road yesterday in Moose, Wyoming.
I would rather have your guitar in hand than a live Badger any day!
Happy NGD!

Thanks, all! This had been sitting on eBay for a few months and I kept track of it and decided to get it before someone else did. Love the color Cardinal Red on the Firebirds and it looks great on this Junior. This is a keeper and I've been through a number of guitars in the past five years.

Oh - and the neck profile seems to be in between a slim taper and the 58 neck on my 2018 Custom Shop Junior Doublecut. Still has substance but isn't a baseball bat.

What about a Beaver?
Why yes I did.
Saw his handiwork, his dam.
Mr. Beaver was swimming around his pond, when he swam head first into a mound , of sticks and mud.
Did not know what he swam into until he came out of the water, rubbing his head and said, “dam” !

Thanks, everyone! Very happy with the guitar and may mod the truss rod cover and the pickup. Will post some better pics in the future.
