you've been researching gibson sg's. Well thats good.

Gibson SG Junior? Sounds like a smaller version of the SG, maybe a little less quality.

My God some people are ignorant. Gibson makes guitars called "juniors." They are full size guitars that just have a single P-90 pickup. There is the Les Paul version, the Double-cut version, and the SG version. All three have a single p-90 instead of humbuckers like their Standard couterparts. Hence, "junior." It's possible to find DC Jr.'s with two p-90's as well.

Gibson realeased them years ago as a more affordable alternative to the more expensive versions. There are also Epiphone versions of them out there that aren't half bad. Although quite a few version suck.

Topic creator, The Gibson SG Jr. that Musician's Friend has is pretty overpriced. THey had it at $500 with a harshell case when it first came out. Now it's $700 with a gigbag. Even so, I haven't heard anything really bad about them. If you like the sound of P-90's I don't see why it wouldn't work for you.

I will say, however, that you can get a hell of a guitar for $700 if you don't buy a Gibson. There are lots of other guitar brands out there that make excellent guitars in that price range. Quite a few with P-90's as well. If you'd like I can post a list of some good ones in that price range.

The SG Jr. Is a nice guitar, when it was $500. Last month it was at $599, still not bad. But WTF, even the SG special with P-90s went from $7something to $999. Did Gibson decide one day that they weren't making enough money already and raised the price more?

^Apparently they did. A lot of their prices went up. Hell-even the LP Specials which were crap for $650 went up to $750.

Topic creator, are you absolutely set on the SG shape?
