I drove about an hour each way yesterday afternoon and this followed me home. It's a 1956 Junior that's been around the block a few times. Lots of play wear as well as a repaired headstock break. The frets are tiny and have some wear on them as well, but are working for me (for now).

The P-90 sounds really nice and is a little different than my '60 Junior. This one has a little more grit to it to my ears. It's nice to have them a little different, actually.

Here are some pics that I took today. Enjoy!

Awsome guitar! I played that one at a local shop when it was here in Indiana and still kick myself for not pulling the trigger. If I'm not mistaken the repair work was done by Chad Fitzpatrick at CF Restorations--which means you are in luck--it was done properly.

Yes! That's the one! The previous owner got it from Copper Chord Music in Huntington, IN and Chad did do the repair.

Awesome, I live right around those guys. Chad has been my go-to guy for a few years now. He is as good as they come!

I think, that these earlier (pre 1957) Juniors are a bit brighter and more aggressive cause their tailpiece is a bit more closer to the pickup.

Added a poll just for fun in case anyone's still looking. Probably should've done it when I first posted the thread as most people have already seen it and are probably not coming back. :laugh2:

It looks like they started to stamp this with a slightly different serial number before committing to a different one. Kind of interesting...
