Classic Les Paul styling combined with a lustrous finish makes the Epiphone LP Junior Special Electric Guitar one hot-looking axe. Fast-playing neck and resonant tonewood body enhance the amazingly powerful, sustain-drenched tone of the single humbucker in the bridge position. The LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece create more sustain and make string changing easier. A fantastic first guitar or a very affordable solution for old hands who've always wanted a Junior to call their own. Case sold separately.

for anyone wondering this guitar is insane for the price. i own my share of expensive guitars but i also enjoy finding cheap guitars that can hold their own. i picked this guitar up at my local g.c. just to play around on and was impressed with its action so i plugged it in and was i surprised. so i decided to buy it and when i got home i hooked it up to my metal zone and nothing but insane sounds followed. wonderful clean tones and distortion has a nice fat crunch to it. if your looking for something fun to add to your lineup this is it.

This guitar doesn't stay in tune, the input jack needs to be replace about two-three weeks after having it, the paint chips easily and makes your hands stick to the neck which slows you down when playing this guitar, the pickups are some of the worst I've ever seen on a guitar for it being a BRAND NEW guitar, and the bridge is not aligned correctly with the rest of the guitar so anything past about the 7th or ninth fret hardly ever comes out the way it should sound. The tension was completely off as well on this guitar with the E, the D, and the G strings hitting the 1st fret which will constantly give you that bad sound from it constantly vibrating off of it. This was also due to the fact the the bridge wasn't properly aligned as well!! And this is the way it came Brand New and I never made any adjustments to it or anything because I took it back and got my money back. This guitar made my little nephew's First Act guitar sound like as if it were a Gibson SG just because of how poorly made this guitar was. I Do NOT recommend this Guitar to anyone, Beginners, experience players, or even anyone who is on a tight budget for that matter. Just Buy something else that is a name brand and make sure you check to see where it was made!!!!

This guitar is absolutely great for what it is; an awesome basic electric. No frills, got it on sale for less than $100! Great sound even from the stock pickup. You may need to do some setup, as I did, but once that's done you're good to go from then on. Simple guitars like this are easy to customize, too. I replaced the stock pickup with a Lace Red/Silver humbucker, then added a 3-way switch to give me the three combinations of single-red/humbucker/single-silver. This thing comes to life for blues, rock, metal, even clean tones! The action is adjustable from too-low-buzzy all the way up to slide-guitar-heaven. Tuners could be better, but I always tune before a playing session anyway. If you like the Gibson scale (24.75") you really can't go wrong with this guitar.
I was given this guitar used, and I will say, HOLY CARP, this is an excellent instrument! Though it is Epiphone, it has quite the tone and won't kill your shoulders like a regular Les Paul. The one (surprisingly hot) pickup (a 700T I think) is very good for most styles, but can excel in Rock, Punk, and other high gain genres. it felt very sturdy in my hands, and was of high standard for build quality. Mine was in a fine (Alpine?) White and was Ltd. Edition Custom Shop, with a (somewhat cheesy) checkerboard duct taped pickguard. All in all, this is an IMMENSE guitar, good for beginners and experts alike.
I have been playing guitar for 40 years and was amazed at how great this guitar really is. Excellent value for the money. An absolute win win purchase.
I got the Les Paul Jr. when my wife bought the Rocksmith package that came with this guitar. I had played for awhile before but I had to sell my gear (including my Strat) and had not played in almost 20 years. When I first saw the guitar I was skeptical. I am not a skeptic anymore. It holds tune well and has a great action. For the price and country of origin, it is a great deal. I have the vintage sunburst. I bought a more expensive guitar (Ibanez), but I always go back to my Epiphone. Change the strings that come with it though, they kind of suck.
nice guitar.. nice pickups.. good price.. awesome sound..
i have no cons about this product.. from the time i got it out of the box i cant put it down... i have had it 6 days now.. and my finger tips hurt to the point needing ice.. lol... i have played non-stop.. i havnt had a guitar in a little while.. but now that i found a good affordable one thanks to les paul and the folks at guitar center.. they gave my hands back their voice.. love the guitar!!
I've had this guitar for about a year now. I love it! It sounds and feels great. I haven't had any major problems with the guitar yet. I have one in the ebony finish and it looks great. It's even a good, un-expensive gigging guitar. The pickup even sounds amazing. Overall, this is a very good quality guitar for any player looking for a nice guitar under $200.
This guitar is my baby. After my Behringer gave out, this Les Paul JR was a breath of fresh air! Its a good weight, nice size, easy to play, looks good, feels and sounds great! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good guitar to use for a long time for practice or even for shows!I paid $40 for mine from guitar center Albuquerque.
I just bought this guitar about a week ago thinking "ahh man, I really want a Gibson Les Paul Junior, but I'll give this little guy a try." I fell in love with it as soon as I plugged it into my Orange 35w crush amp. This thing is a little monster when in a nasty overdrive! The only things that I'm modifiying to this guitar are the pickup (going to put in a P94); the pickguard (Tortoise shell); the bridge (classic wrap around bridge) and the tone/volume knobs (like a golden colored). I'm trying to go for an old '57 les paul juninor look/feel/sound. I know, putting so much time/money into this little epiphone is useless, but it will be so worth it! Love the guitar! I highly recommend it!
This guitar...it's simply wonderful. I bought an alpine white one last year and it's aesthetically stunning. All the hardware is good, it stays in tune always, and the sound is amazing. I strung it with a set of d'Addario 12's and it's great. I'm now priming mine for a Bigsby fitting and a new DiMarzio pickup (although the stock is more than adequate) and I don't think I'll ever need a new guitar. Besides an Epiphone Les Paul Studio, but that's a nice $400 I don't have.
