    Comments about Gibson 2015 Les Paul Junior Single Cut Electric Guitar:

    I walked into Guitar Center and saw a Heritage Cherry Junior on clearance and was curious to try it out. I wasn't interested in purchasing a second guitar as I was quite content with my 2013 Les Paul Studio Deluxe II. Upon first look over, I noticed that the G Force tuner had been removed and the store had installed Kluson Deluxe tuners. It was also very light. Compared to most Les Pauls that I've played at stores, the action at the nut was fantastic. I plugged into a 5 watt tube amp and was blown away by the tone. I like the P90s in this Junior; the growl and snarl is all there - it also cleans up really well with the guitars volume and adjusting the tone on the guitar also adds some versatility in the direction of a neck pickup. The Junior has enough of a different feel and tone than my humbucker LP that it was worthwhile to purchase it. I put the guitar on layaway after not finding a single quality control issue. The wide neck is very good and the lower frets don't bother me one bit – in fact, they are what I'd call vintage height and promote a lighter touch. The shape and width of the slim taper neck brings out a different approach and I like that it isn't the same as my 2013 LP (60s neck) which I like very much too. The 009-046 gauge strings really seem to suite the neck and pickup very well. I think the Les Paul 100 logo and hologram sticker are unique and don't affect tone or take away from the beauty of the instrument. I wanted an Old School guitar when I bought my 2013 LP - so I gutted it and put in Seth Lovers with 50s style vintage wiring and it really pushed the guitar in the right direction. Other then strings, this Junior doesn't need any upgrades - it's a classic bare bones piece of mahogany with an awesome pickup screwed on the top and it's a real dream to play through my hand-wired Plexi clone. The setup of the intonation is very good as read by my Peterson strobe tuner and the case is very nice.

    Comments about Gibson 2015 Les Paul Junior Single Cut Electric Guitar:

    I've wanted a Les Paul Jr for some time now so when they became available again in 2015 I jumped on the opportunity. I ordered mine online in TV yellow and I've owned it for about 1 month. Overall the fit and finish is excellent. It weighs in at about 4.5 pounds, and is really resonant. I own 2 other Gibson's, both both of which are older SGs (2007, and 2008), and this one is equally as good. The G-force tuners have worked well for me. A lot of people don't seem to like them, but I haven't had any issues. If you spend some time digging into the online manual you'll find that they do more than just tune to standard. I find myself wishing my other Gibson's had them. I really like the zero-fret nut. It works for me. I have heard some folks have had issues with the strings cutting grooves into the brass zero fret, but if you contact Gibson customer service they will send a nickle replacement for it. The wider fret board took me about 10 minutes to get used to and now I really can't tell the difference between it and my other Gibson's, but I have long hands. The P90ST pickup doesn't really sound like a true P90 to me. The slug magnets made it shrill and thin like Strat pickup. I absolutely hated it. I swapped it for a Lollar P90 dogear, and also swapped out the controls for an RS Guitarworks set. It howls like a beast now! This is now my favorite guitar of my 3 Gibson's. It's the one I play the most, either through an amp or unplugged on the couch watching TV.

    Comments about Gibson 2015 Les Paul Junior Single Cut Electric Guitar:

    Gibson has stepped up their game with the 2015 Les Paul Junior in terms of craftsmanship, sound and quality. Sure I know some folks who aren't sold on the G-Force tuners and I can't say I am totally on board with those either at this point. So far so good. What is impressive other than the flawless fit and finish of the Junior is the sound. This is a great P-90 in this guitar. If you are used to strat single coils this pick up will surprise. The percussive tone is great and you can get tone out of this guitar for days. I have to say that I love the new wider fret boards myself because I have very large hands. I am thoroughly enjoying this guitar maybe even a bit more than I did my 60's tribute model a couple of years ago. It begs to be played.
