I'll bet the seller is on this forum.

Just bought my first LP in 11 years or so. The last Gibby I had was a 2016 SG Standard that I sold a couple years back. I couldn't find others to play with, so I sold it and all my gear for...some reason that I can't remember anymore. But suddenly there's a bunch of people putting out ads to start bands where I live. Total switch!

I've always wanted one of these...Les Paul Junior. I just love the stripped down look and burst. It's been upgraded with a Lollar P-90, Faber aluminum TP, and Gotoh plate tuners. The seller is only about 1 hour away so I'll go pick it up sometime this weekend. Oh hell yeah.

Congrats man!!!

I've never been able to find one with a thin neck.
Well, aside from a few OLD ones that I wasn't willing to pay for.

So I'm doing an all-Mahogany Warmoth build on a Strat platform.

I'm excited to get all the pieces together, but I still want a Real Deal Junior.

Several years ago I got a killer deal on a spectacular Les Paul Junior - and through some momentary lapse of reason ended up trading it for something that I don't even remember anymore.

HUGE mistake.

Enjoy yours!

Drive carefully!

I love mine.
If I could afford to collect them I’d have every iteration ever made!

Congrats, those are excellent guitars and a lot better than one might think. Bought the Custom Shop version by accident last year so I got a chance to play one for a while before I traded it for a killer DC Special. I’m a lefty that plays lefty strung rightie. I would have kept that Junior but playing upside down you have limited access to the higher registers due to the single cut. Not a problem with a DC Special. You’ll really dig it that guitar, they’re sooo cool!

I really, really wanted a DC, but all the cherry red ones with the smaller pg’s are vintage or custom shop. I didn’t want a tribute with the big pg.

Yeah, I’m diggin the DC even though it is a righty, works well with the double cut. The DC Special and Jr. are excellent guitars, just took me a while to get it. Rock on Sir!

Happy NGD!
I don't have a "real" Junior yet. One 2007 Epiphone '57 Reissue Junior, and a 2019 Junior Tribute DC. I suppose the DC is a real Junior because Gibson says it is, but I'd still like a USA Junior.

Those Jr Tribute DC‘s are actually very nice guitars. I have a few of them and I really dig them. I modified this one replacing the P90 with a Wolfetone Dr. Vintage Humbucker and it is ABSOLUTELY killer. Gibson appears to have discontinued the Jr Tribute DC, big mistake, they were on to something!
