    Hi all,

    Fist post, first question for the pro's please :
    I have been looking for a vintage Jr, do you know guys if the price of this one is reasonable on this one ?
    Sorry I can't post the direct link from Reverb but this is reverb item #30166128 (1st link with google).
    According the shop this is the original brown color from a sepcial order. The 2 pieces body seems to be rare too...

    Thank you !

    It doesn’t look like finish is original to me.

    That finish definitely looks dodgy to me. I'd avoid it personally...plenty of Juniors out there :)

    Agree with everyone above. Looks like a refin and not a great one. For that price you could probably find one with the original paint and no major breaks or repairs.

    I hope it is just a weird photo angle, but the neck appears to be twisted.

    "All original finish" :rofl:

    They didn't even come in brown until 1969. Not to mention the hideous pock marks all over it...

    The price is insane, IMO. But then again, I think all vintage guitars are insane. People out there asking over $3,000 for Norlin SG Deluxes. But especially in that condition, this one is nuts.
