Hi All! I've been a lurker for years and have long forgotten my original username and password so I started again... The Sg is my favorite guitar of all time, not so much the standards but the juniors. The junior seemed to get the best of everything for producing tone (to my ears of course) and the styling was so wonderfully understated as well compared to the other models.. I started with a 70s sg that was well worn when I got it (and well worn when I sold it) I can't work out exactly what year it was but it had a rosewood board with binding, small square block markers, narrow neck, harmonica bridge, tarback pickup (plus an early bill lawrence), neck volute, schaller machines that looked original and some cutaway chamfering.. But the memory is a bit fuzzy about the rest.. About 1992ish I managed to get a 66 Junior with the early neck join as I could not quite scrounge to get the 61/62 Les Paul model that I wanted. The 66 had some nasty mods (like some clown tried to install a neck pickup) but it had most of its original parts and no headstock break. I still have this guitar.. And it has been functionally restored and running like silk... I have owned a few other juniors, like the 00/01 reissue and the 2005 coral pink models. Plus as a side track I have had an Epiphone SG400 custom (three pickup jobbie.. great neck on them..) None of the others measured up to the vibe of my 66 so they all went eventually.. I recently got a 91 reissue Junior that I'm in the process of getting ship shape and think it will scrub up well. I'm changing just a few little details, like putting ivory looking machine buttons on it to capture the look of the earlier machines (well if you squint anyway) and the P100 got removed fairly quickly in favour of a P90 that I got in about 1992 but seems to be a 70s clear bobbin model (must have been old stock at the time) Now I'm savvy enough to know that the 91 will not sound like the 66 but I wont be quite so scared to play it out. (which I still play regardless) but it should be convincing enough to allow me to play the same etc.... I'll post some pics once I set up a photobucket account... I'm not really a rocker as such but love the clean compressed sound that the SG junior naturally produces, to me they sound both clearer and more accoustic than a Lester. And those too knobs can almost do anything (providing you can get past the notion of turning everything up flat out) I usually fit a treble bleed cap to my sgs to increase the EQ options.. And the even roar of a junior through a slightly overdriven amp could be used to conquer the world! (it sounds like a whole orchestra) Anyhow I'll be posting on the forum from time to time so I'll see you there! Eden.
