No, it's a special Special Edition.

Epiphone puzzle. Looks great though!
Nice work man!
Love how Les Pauls sound, love how they look... but hate how they play. I can't deal with the weight, the switch location right in the way of my picking hand, they way they hang with the strap pin on the upper bout...
I realized I'm an SG, V and Melody Maker man. But that realization took me years to learn, in which I went through a lot of LPs, never being totally at home with any of them. They certainly were lookers, though...
Though I admit that singlecut Melody Makers are kinda lespaulish... This is the last guitar I bought and modded, and can't seem to get off my hands these days...
I like the thin body on those and the simplicity of a single pickup and wraparound bridge. They are a lot of fun to play. If it had a forearm relief like on a 1979 "The Paul" then it would be perfect IMO.
Agreed! We SG players are spoiled when it comes to ergonomics, there's not a more comfortable guitar!
You're definitively a slow learner ...
One fact I love about the little cheap Epi LP Special P90, is that it's a SG in a LP disguise.
Light weight , growly, melodic, teticular if need be and tossable.
The reason I bought that Tokai I posted above was I couldn't find an appropriately priced SG with P90s, and it does a good job of pulling it off. Still not as comfortable to play as an SG, but the tones are there.
Took a new photo with a bit better light.
@bwotw, that Faded Standard looks so appealing. They turned out to be some of the best Gibson produced during those years.
Gorgeous pair !
Indeed! They were a great line. A bit of polish and they looked beautiful.
That Jr is smokin', brotha.
I don't own a Paul now, but this 73 was my #1 for eleven years:
It was a very cool guitar. But I actually sold it about a week ago... I found a 2018 SG Standard at 60% of, and since I got my 1965 SG Jr. this fall, the LP Jr. hasn't really been played. So I figured somebody else had more use for it then me, and the sale could finance the new SG. I know I'm going to miss it, but I don't regret it.
Did you keep the Tyson Tone ?
