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.

Low price, high quality

By t-o-double-d

from Snohomish Washington

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Junior Special Electric Guitar:

The Epiphone Les Paul Junior Special guitar is awesome. The minute I picked it up in the store I felt complete. So f course I bought it. Mostly because of it's awesome sound and low price. It makes a great starter guitar or a cheap guitar to just shred on. Some people say that a guitar like this will not last long. But I know it will if I take good care of it.

sweet little junior

By les paul freak

from utah

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Junior Special Electric Guitar:

i own 3 guitars now and i got this guitar over the presedents day sale. ive always wanted a lespaul or a junior. it rocks the only thing is that mine makes that annoying buzzing sound but i believe ive solved that. man this is an awsome sweet axe. it plays great. just about as good as my squire strat. i wish it came in white and black. but if your a beginner or an itermediate player this is the guitar for you. so if your not looking to spend too much on a guitar get this. i prefer gibson but this is as close as you will get if you cant afford a gibson. buy this guitar

Saved the Day

By Epiphonefanatic

from Pottstown,m Pa

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Junior Special Electric Guitar:

I was looking for a good solid guitar that wasnt going to hurt my wallet. I enjoy the tone and the all around playability of the Junior. The neck feels right to me and it doesnt way as much as alot of other guitars out there. Great guitar for a player with a budget. Thanks for everything and all the help.

Great Value

By MeNotyou

from SLC, UT

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Junior Special Electric Guitar:

This guitar is simple, sounds great and doesn't cost a lot. The only "cheap" component would be the tuners. But the more I play, and the more I tune, they seem to keep the tune better. The sound is great. I bought this to have something to hammer power chords on and save my tele from the stress, but I keep wanting to play everything on this. You really can't go wrong.

I recently recieved this guitar for christmas. The styl isnt the black like on the picture, but a sunburst like the old '57. It sounds amazing. Distortion is great, but what realy amazed me was the clean sound it gives. A great guitar for the collection and amzing sound! GET THIS GUITAR! P.S. i see no flaws in it whatsoever.

The Best epiphone

By omar the beast

from herndon, virginia

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Junior Special Electric Guitar:

ok. So i bought this guitar cause its a junior and i wanted to get a junior cause billie joe armstrong plays one, but i can't afford a $1000 guitar. I have a mexican stratocaster, and i like this guitar more. trust me this thing rocks. Alot of people have had problems with the tuning knobs and the straps need locks. Mine didnt. So far it has stayed in tune for about 5 days and the strap hasnt fallen off since the day i put it on. Now the sound is phenomenal. Sounds almost like the gibson. get this guitar. great finish, sound, etc. Awesome for Green Day and any othe music. Very clean sounding guitar.

This guitar should really cost alot more

By Steven Williams

from Phliadelphia, Pa

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Junior Special Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar about two months ago. When i got it home and plugged it into my amp... I was completely blown away by the power of the humbucker pickup. Before i got the guitar i was thinking maybe I should buy some Gibson dirty fingers, but these pickups can hold their own man. When i drop c tune my guitar and plum-mute it's like hearing a bomb go off every time i strum!!!! I love this guitar, I've played many brands and Epiphone has won me over with this hidden treasure. I will gladly say this is now my main guitar. It sound really good through my Marshell Mgfx50. It has a really good look to it also.

Great Guitar, Low Price

By Edwin Quinonez

from Los Angeles California

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Junior Special Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar this summer. SO far I love it. The only problem is that the guitar gets dirty fast. Youre fingerprints smudge on. So I would suggest to get a cleaning kit.

PIECE OF JUNK

By Chris

from STL, MO

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Junior Special Electric Guitar:

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!!!!
