Listen to Leslie West with Mountain to get an idea of how great these guitars can sound.

Yup, yup, yup! :P

LP Jrs are one of my fav's. Simple, beautiful, solid, tone monsters!! I'm not expert on new ones, but I have a couple of old ones. And, they simply kick butt. I particularly love the ones with the massive thick necks.

 

The down side is that they are somewhat limited in the variety of tone they can produce. But, with a decent amp, and some creative use of the volume and tone knobs, you can make substantial tone-age!!

 

Us Guitaraholics KNOW THAT A GOOD LP JR IS A REQUIRED PART OF ANY DECENT AXE COLLECTION!!

 

Get with it Zan..... :eek::D

 

See you on the Guitaraholic thread :D

I'm a big Johnny Thunders fan... so one day I want to get a Jr. I thought about getting that Epi 57 Reissue for $300. But I really want a Gibson.

 

There are lots of Jrs to choose from... of course the most expensive would be vintage Jrs fromthe late 50's. Then there are the regular Gibson reissues along the way - under $1,000. There's custom shop models for around $2,000. and then there's the new Bille Joe Greenday version...

I can smell ya from here :D

 

...just go buy some of those little guitar pins. It's like methadone for the G.A.S. crowd.

I still think guitars are like shoes, but louder.

For a guitar like that, sacrifice the body!! as long as you don't damage your hands, you're fine :D

Never argue with an idiot. They'll bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

I was at Guitar Center checking out different kinds of pickups and one guitar I used was the LP Jr. Special:

 

http://www.gibson.com/products/gibson/lespaul/images/lpjsna.jpg

 

(Though I don't remember that funky pickguard, and I thought it had a combined bridge/tailpiece.)

 

Anyway, new at $750 and I had a hard time putting it down, though the others at hand were a Classic & a Standard, nice guitars each.

 

Love those P90's, nothing else sounds quite like 'em. Well, they were probably P100's, glad to see that a humbucking version can still sound sweet.

 

Was sorely tempted to leave the shop $750 poorer.
