• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Picked up this basically new Junior from the emporium over at another forum. Sounds fantastic! Not changing any electronics on this one. Setup needs some work, but will get there. Love the neck profile.

How does that case fit? Any towel in the lower bout? It's a TKL but what's the model number? Thanks! I have a single cut but the case doesn't compensate for the neck angle and the upper cradle doesn't touch the back of the neck. Anyone know who makes or where a good aftermarket case available for Junior/Special neck angles specifically?

Nice, but why did Gibson choose to locate the P-90 so close to the wrap-over bridge/tailpiece? That's very close to the distance found in the pre-1956 vintage Les Paul Juniors, which proved to be problematic w/ the short stud bushings.

The same placement of bridge & pickup on the 2018 JR's , makes for a very crisp sound I constantly fiddle with the tone knob .

Use of longer bushing eliminates the problem.

The case fits perfectly. It is slimmer front to back than a regular LP case.

It is a TKL case.

This is one says it fits Juniors
