uhm...................uhm............mmmm...uhm uh uh uh uh......speechless.
Say RTH,is that a Shaller #456 Bridge/Tailpiece ya got on that JR.i put one on mine a couple days ago.works superbly and looks cool as heck to
Ya'll are killing me.......My SG gas had subsided.....till I tuined into this "JR" thread.....crap....
Lol,i know eSG .i love those things.new ones ,old ones heck i dont care. Just nice little horned beasts for playin or moddin or both .
I have owned a number of the Epi SG specials over the years in various colors and versions modded and non. BUt the "Jrs" just seem top have a rough and tumble "wrong side of the tracks" ....I'll start a rumble RIGHT NOW! Sort of attitude that others don't have....or am I wrong?
I just purchased one of these used online and I'm really liking it. However, the neck plate is upside down (obviously someone took off the neck and reassembled it this way) and the serial number is only a sticker which I unfortunately cannot read. Has anyone seen one of these with a sticker serial number? It is possible that its not the original Epiphone neck plate, I have no history on the guitar.
Couple more pics, would be great to identify where it was made!
For some reason my pic isnt showing up anymore. Oh well, here it is again.
Johnny, yes, it is a 456. I found it in a parts bin at a local shop for $20!
I'm joining the Epi SG junior club! Haggled for this little dude. He's got a few dings and looks well-loved, he'll make an excellent project guitar
Painters tape aids in the tOnez.
Holy mother of zombie thread. Congrats BTW.
By the way, what's a good replacement tuner for stock? Thinking I may as well change those while I'm doing up the rest!
I really like my Hipshot lockers...
They look great! I don't have the underlying plates on my headstock though, but I can get that style from GFS, might need to measure things - what size holes are they?
The Hipshot tuners came with the alignment plates. They were not on the guitar before the swap. I will have to look tomorrow in the shop for the reamer size that I used.
Has anyone tried an Epiphone LP Junior Double Cut with the P90? They were made about 97 or so, I'm wondering if there is much difference from the SG Junior.
Thought I scored a set of Jr PG's off ebay. Turns out they're custom made. Don't fit anything I can make out.
Why not just specify that in the listing fer chrissakes? Live & learn.
I had an Epi LP DC special with 2 p90s. It felt just like a Les Paul to play. Seemed heavy in comparison to an Epi SG I recall.
So I picked up my second SG Jr P90 tonight, the new one is in yellow, my previous one is red. Love these guitars! However there are multiple differences between them so I assume they were made in different factories, or at least at different times and batches. First, the yellow has the serial number stamped on the neckplate and it was made in the Cort Indonesia factory in 1997. However the red had the serial number as a sticker on the neckplate and it no longer is readable. Any ideas where it was made? I thought I read these ones were made in the Samick factory in Korea, that they used stickers for serial numbers but I'm not sure.
Here are the differences I noticed:
1. Different serial number formats (stamped vs sticker)
2. Yellow one has wider contours around the edges
3. Different tuners
4. Red one has a much bigger backplate
5. Slightly different knob locations
6. Different strap lock locations (yellow on back of neck, red on back of body)
7. The edges on the pickup cover are rounded on the red one, more squared off on the yellow one
I've uploaded some pictures, any help in identifying where the red one (and year!) would be greatly appreciated!
