Picked up a USA Junior a few months back and been absolutely loving the sound and getting on okay with the relatively slim neck: to be fair, it's a great neck and not as slim as most slim-taper necks I've played in the past.

BUT!

Had a hankering for something a bit more special (pun intended!) and picked up this beauty yesterday:

Absolutely bang-on! Slightly chunkier neck, same great growl from the bridge pickup and a sweet sounding neck position to boot. Plus it has that lovely VOS look-and-feel that the CS do so well. Plays and sounds great: needed tuning after shipping (naturally!) but the action and intonation were spot on out-of-the-box.

This and my Gretsch will be my main gigging guitars ... on the fence as to whether to keep hold of the Junior as well ... I mean, it's a great guitar but it's somewhat surplus to requirements now!

A beautiful piece of art. And I love the new '60s accurate yellow-lined cases.

At first I was prepared to be disappointed as I kinda like the brown lifton-style cases but, I have to agree with you, this black/yellow case is really nice.

I just saw this on the net.

TV white? Very nice! I saw a couple of M2M TV Yellow one’s but wasn’t sure … TV White would’ve worked, though … but I held out for somewhere that had the classic Cherry in stock and very pleased that I did.
