Standard Production LP Junior Improvements
Posted 17 July 2010 - 12:18 PM
Last year, I purchased a standard production model Les Paul Junior. It's a great guitar with a great sound. However, there is one design element on this model that bugs me: the neck is set to the flat top like a neck would be set on a carved top model, resulting in the flat top having to be sanded down in center to accommodate the angled neck set and fretboard. None of the other Junior models in production are built like this. Instead, they use the more traditional neck set that leaves the top flat and a gradual rise in the height of the fretboard, which I think is a better design. For over $800, I think folks deserve a little better design than what is currently being used.

I totally agree here. I have one of the first of the reintroduced Gibson USA juniors (2001) and the design doesn't allow for any adjustment of the polepieces on the P-90, because the strings are too close to it. I don't know why they can't just build the new ones with the same construction as the old ones.
