I am very, very happy with my latest acquisition, a '55 sunburst Junior! Not mint, but with the best relic job ever, using a technique called "57 years of honest wear and tear". No breaks, other than the repair of "leaning bridge post syndrome"; something I can easily live with.

Thank you, all Forum members who have supported this purchase with their expertise, and warm thanks to Mike Slub for his reference concerning the dealer from whom I purchased the guitar!

I've owned my '54 Junior for almost 30 years. Wow, hard to believe. Enjoy yours, she looks great!
