    But you don't lose anything by having that extra pickup. I know that lots of people can get decent sounds out of a single pickup guitar, but that doesn't mean that I can.

    Many people pronounce that the single pickup versions sound different to the twins by virtue of the lack of an extra pickup cut out in the body.

    I couldn't possibly comment! ;)

    I'm sure that they do. Imagination is a wonderful thing, isn't it?

    Not only that, it's the difference in magnetic effect on the strings. It's ok if you can't tell the difference or others can - you know, like say Phil X.

    Never had the pleasure of playing one but I'm sure I would love it as much as I love the look.

    I've got a 1998 Epiphone version, made in Indonesia with a bolt-on mahogany neck on a maple body with a P90. It needed a bit of fret work but has otherwise been great.

    Here's a short clip of it, it's used on both the rhythm and lead here...

    Phil X is the current replacement for Richie Sambora in Bon Jovi and quite a badass guitarist.He also does lots of youtube video where he demos vintage guitars for fretted Americana.Here he demos a 1955 Junior:

    While I've looked at some good used LP Jr.guitars, none have made it out of the store with me. Soon, perhaps? :whistling:

    Logic would suggest that the magnetic field of the neck pickup would have more of an effect on string vibration than that of the bridge pickup, situated as it is in an area of greater string vibration, so there is more to damp.



    However past experience tells me I need to say the following:

    PLEASE stop posting these, or I shall start wanting one!!

    Good luck! Between this den of enablers and a gift for talking oneself into "needing" another guitar, it's probably a lost cause :eek::D

    I know I havent posted photos of this one yet, but im sure they will come when Im good and ready to take photos of it.

    I have to say, for a single pickup, these little guys can cover a lot of tones... the tone knob on the guitar is very important.

    Im finding that keeping the tone at about 8 on the guitar gives you a really nice fat, but clear tone. kinda like a neck pickup.... then kick the knob to 10 and its pure bridge, but still retains some of that fatness.

    I dig it!

    with gain, I love it even more... it really really enjoys some sweet gain.
