    I love em! I love Esquire also, prefer both with chunky necks and extra hot sauce!

    LOVE 'em!

    Had a 2015 with a beautiful natural burst finish (similar to above pics). Just could not "get" with the robo tuners. BUT there are a few on Reverb right now (or there were last week anyway).

    SPECIALS?!?! See my previous post- get one now for $839.00- a seriously great guitar looks and tonally, IMO!


    Chicago Music Exchange, American Musical and Zzounds had 'em. I did a review if interested.

    Does the SG Junior count as well? it started like the Les Paul Junior in 1961.
    Well, I have to add it sounds different than the Les Paul old school shaped Junior but I love the single P90 and the one piece bridge.
    Here´s a small sound snack using my fat neck rocker tone machine

    Life is good,

    I'm not one of them either. Their loss is our gain. Simplistically beautify. Raw and rowdy. Amazing range of sound from one pup.

    I'v seen The Yardbirds the last couple of times they've come around and Johnny A plays a Junior to good effect. It seems like the perfect substiute for JB's Esquire.

    There have been a couple of Epi Juniors for sale in the area:

    A bolt-on for $150 (up from $135, what the . . . ?)

    A custom shop set neck for $275.

    I was wondering if anyone had experience with these.

    well I got one yesterday

    And I agree...

    these little suckers rule pretty hard.

    I will clean it up and post it up over the next couple of days.

    When I rolled the volume back, the most acoustic like tone I’d ever heard come from an electric.

    Sorry to put this pic up again but the 55 in the middle is sheer musical brutality:cool:. The 59 and 60 Specials are great too but nothing roars like the Junior into a tweed amp without a pedal in sight:D.

    One of my favorite types of guitars. They teach you those control knobs have settings other than '10' and how much pick attack and pick location matter to the tone.

    Juniors even work at the lower budget side of the tracks...
    This is my fun knock around player, super light weight. It's had some work.

    I have a double cut Special that’s awesome, and the PRS SE One version of the Junior. Man that thing plays SWEET!

    I haven't voted, but I don't see the point of single pickup guitars. Specially if that single pickup is at the bridge. My P90 LP Studio is more likely to get played in the neck pickup position - why would I want a guitar that deprives me of that option?

    Nice! Interesting variation in the knob layouts of the Specials. Do you think there is a difference in their P90's vs. the dog ear?

    To me, it's just the basic a sonic hammer.

    I think this guy makes a good case for the one pickup layout:
