    The Junior arrived yesterday and my left hand is almost numb from playing it so much. Sounds great through my Fender Super Reverb and the new Vox TV4 that came in yesterday as well.

    I have a Vox Tonelab ST coming this next week & then I can really make it sing. My Boss GT10 doesn't do a bad job with it either.

    I don't want people to drool all over them yet.

    You know , it's been so long since I played one with the short Vibrola, I'm curious how it's working and about how far you can bend pitch (not a big range if I recall).

    thanks!

    It doesn't have a big range, but it's just enough. If you really bash on it, it will go out of tune, but for the most part it's relatively stable.

    Thanks, guitarweasel! That's sorta how I recall it working but I was not sure and no one in my small town had one to try. Much obliged.

    Since I'll never own one of those, I really think they'd look much better with a large P/G.
    ;D

    You can buy one new for considerably less than the final bid. Try E M Shorts in Kansas. :)

    Afraid not.

    I live in the UK, or as it's probably known to the likes of Gibson, [size=10pt]s[/size]UcKers.
