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.

I bought this guitar on a whim and at first wished I didn't. The one I got seemed like a lemon. The 8th & 16th frets buzz like there's no tomorrow, the stock tuners can't hold tuning to save their lives and the stock wraparound bridge will not intonate no matter what I do. I was about to return it when I discovered it makes a mean slide guitar when you crank the action up a bit. That's the strong point of my particular Epi Jr. though. I've played other version of the Jr. and they've all been WAY better than mine. So try before you buy is the best advice I got. If you think it doesn't play good, pass on it & go for the Epiphone Les Paul Special II with the 2 P-90 pickups. If you want a cool side guitar, then go for it but at least replace the stock tuners like I did with mine.

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Junior Special Electric Guitar:

    Great fit and finish. Looks like a three piece mahogany body with a mahogany veneer top. Pickup sounds very nice, and is hot. Only issue was after a few minutes of playing, the tone control wiring shorted to ground so no sound. Was an easy fix for me. I also had to do a setup. For the money, this is a very nice instrument.

      Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Junior Special Electric Guitar:

      Guitar had a strange defect...it had two volume controls instead of one volume and one tone control. This was because the capacitor for the tone pot was wired incorrectly. The cap was simply grounded to the tone pot. It should have been wired to the outer prong on the volume pot, and then from there grounded to the volume pot.

      I replaced the cap with an orange drop, and then wired it correctly. The controls worked fine and the pickup sounded pretty good. This guitar also had very rough fret edges--not enough to cut or scratch fingers, but enough to feel very uncomfortable while playing. I carefully filed down the rough fret edges, and then the guitar played well. Still a bargain even with the extra work. The crazy wiring should have been caught at QC, but was not properly examined, even with the QC passed sticker on it. Now the guitar plays well and has a surprisingly good tone. It looks pretty good to me also.

          Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Junior Special Electric Guitar:

          I bought the ebony LP Jr. because the sale price was so outrageously low that I couldn't stop myself. Apparently I got it just in time as MF seems to have sold out on the black model and are no longer offering it. I wasn't expecting much, but I was very pleasantly surprised. It doesn't have as full a tone as Epiphone's LP Special II, but the single bridge humbucker has a gritty snarl to it that caught me off guard. This is a real rock 'n' roll guitar, through and through. It's got a nice bite to its tone. All things considered, this is one of the best purchases I've made in years.

            Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Junior Special Electric Guitar:

            This is the best deal ever, at 64! I got the black version on sale, and I wasn't expecting much. The first things that I noticed were that the frets we relatively smooth and did not require much attention or polishing, and that the strings were properly centered on the neck. Also, the truss rod worked smoothly and did not require much adjustment. The string height was right on the money, and the intonation only needed a slight adjustment by using the two small Allen screws protruding from the rear of the bridge. I love the simplicity of this guitar, no selector switch and only one volume and one tone control. I was surprised by the sound of the single humbucker through my Fender Deluxe Reverb, and when pushed, it has a distinctive snarl for rock & roll. The tuners, although cheap, work just fine, but I had to tighten the wood screws and snug the tension screws to take out the slop when tuning. On the negative side for me, the guitar feels like it was dipped in plastic, and is very slippery. Also, my particular guitar is rather heavy, weighing in at 7.8 pounds. This guitar is a lot of fun to play, sounds great, and is a real bargain. All in all, I am impressed.
