Junior has one pickup and is lighter. Normal LP, is heavier generally has a carved top and two pickups. The junior is a standard size guitar as far as I know.

EDIT. Try one, you might find the neck is fine my mate has small hands and can play standard guitars.

Price, weight, and pick ups. It's a "budgeted" version of the les paul. Lighter, as far as i know its only one pick up, and much cheaper. I believe the size is the same as any other guitar though.

well the authentic juniors are 50's necks. So that may not be the best for your small fingers. Course my fingers are small and i got used to it.

The Juniors are "regular" sized, not 3/4 and they are beasts. Main differences are that the Junior has only 1 Pickup, usually a P90, with dot inlays and a flat top body with no binding. Tuning keys are different too.

This is on the Gibson version. The Epiphone Version will be the same, except no P90 on most versions and the standard epiphone NOT grover tuners. Hope this helps.

Get one of those and mod it to hell. The only difference between the Squier Strat and the Fender Strat is the quality of the hardware. Get one of those poor quality guitars as you called it, and swap out the tuners and bridge and tail and pick ups etc and make it a good quality guitar.

i bought one of these a couple of years ago, epi though. if you're looking for a guitar for a kid, this is still really good. it's small enough to fit a small arm around, and still small enough to reach the 1st fret. as for sounds, its fine. they're cheap, and great for little hands, and to just carry around with you.
