Do you guys know anything about the gibson les paul jr. special? How much did these used to run for new? I found one on craigslist and the guy wants to trade for either an SG or a les paul studio (I've got a les paul studio). His jr. special is also from 1991.

Anyone think this is a good deal for me? I'm considering asking him to come over so that I could try it out.

Why are you trading away the LPS? I'm looking into getting one, and was wondering, yeah, why? Anything to tell me about it?

No I actually like my les paul studio a lot, it's also an early 90s one. I've heard back then that les paul studios were pretty much the exact same guitars as regular les pauls, except for lesser cosmetics. They are also considered better than current les paul studios I'm pretty sure. It's a great guitar, but I just thought why not trade it if I can get a higher end les paul?

But yeah, before making this thread, I was accidentally seeing reviews of the les paul jr. special PLUS, which got really good ratings. After realizing that I was looking at reviews of the wrong guitar, I looked at reviews and saw that the les paul jr. special realy isn't all that great.

So yeah I'm not doing it.

But try out the les paul studio in a store first to see if you like it. Mine has an ebony fretboard, so it's got a brighter and punchier sound than rosewood fretboard les pauls. Mine also has higher output pickups than the stock ones, which makes it even more bright and punchy.

I'd recommend using craigslist/ebay to get one from the early to mid 90s with an ebony fretboard.

LP Juniors and Specials are great, but you could easily find a better deal than that.

Specials are like stripped down studios kinda.
