    Re: Les Paul Jr's w/ single p90

    The old ones kick ***. Back when I was a kid they were quite common, I've never owned one but I've played a bunch. I played a borrowed LP Junior for a while in the first band I was ever in. The sound is somewhere between a regular single coil and a humbucker, it's a GREAT distortion sound with the right amp. There are a couple of clips at Legendary Tones with a '59 Junior through a Time Machine Boost that are killer. One is into a JTM 45 and the other is into a JCM 800.

      I know they don't make them anymore. So how far back?

        Oh, they still make them. I ran across a new one not that long ago in a pawn shop. They're an awfully fun instrument to play. An P-90's, while not my personal favorite, really make that guitar sound good. You can pick them up for about $450. There's normally not a lot of man hours in making them (at least compared to a LP)

          Nothing more pure than an LP Jr. with a P-90, if you can't rock with one it's just time to go home.

            I couldn't find one on the gibson site, the closest was like a melody maker.

            I just want a raw rock guitar thats fun to play.

              Ya i think gibson stopped making them, and now they make the melody maker. I liek the lp jr.s more to be honest.

                I saw a Jr. a few months back at a GC. New, it was in the $300 range as I recall. I know you can get a Historic RI Jr. but they go for $$. I don't know how the RI sounds, but I have a real '56 that flat out kills. When I bought it it didn't have the original pup. I put an Antiquity in it and that was that. With 500K pots, those guitars put you in the Telecaster range tonally (broadly speaking). Cool sound, but I like mine with a 250K pot and a .022 Orange Drop. Plug into a good amp and that guitar has raw blues/rock tone that puts my Historic lesters to shame.

                  one of my top 5 guitar crunch tones can be heard on weezers blue album. rivers (lead guitarist/singer) played ric osakic's 59 les paul jr. double cutaway.

                  nothing more fun to rock out with than a lp jr.

                          That'd be like a 3+ hour drive, but if the guitar is good, no worries.

                            a junior is one of the few gibsons i would really like to have. they are nice and simple and sound very good. i would think a nice one would be well worth the 3 hour drive.
