      I just ordered new tuners for the Junior Special I have. You can NOT beat the price for these tuners. Grover 102-18C's for $19.95 - http://www.rondomusic.com/product5101.html

        I got one of those LP Jr Epis for my niece. ( w/ a 10 watt Orange crush combo) Spent an hour, polishing the frets and messing with the trussrod and strung it up and it worked fine. She is rocking it in a band.

          Don't own one, but I like the Shoreline Gold VM Squire Thinlines I've played.

          Very comfy, looks good, and sound good too.

          A Tele that really doesn't feel like other Teles.

            I had one of these back in the 70s. Unique pickups designed by Bill Lawrence if I remember correctly. Good sounding guitar with quite a few usable tones.

            Mine was picked up used for really cheap, had the typical Gibson broken headstock w/****************ty repair syndrome so I wound up getting rid of it as soon as I could afford to get something "better".

                Interesting! I can't say it's my thing but each to their own. Is that a Lace Alumitone in the bridge? If so, what's that like?

                      VERY clean and quiet.. processed is the word that comes to my mind quickest.. slightly compressed or maybe just very "even" sounding.



                      they do have some rather interesting qualites.



                      The have awesome picking articulation, especially when played distorted. every note will be heard during quick passages,

                      and chord balance between notes is actually better than most standard pickups. you can hear every note within a chord very clearly.



                      the drawback is, they don't do that, firey, in your face, bluesly growl type sound. playing an SRV song would sound thin and weakish. they can't produce that "sting" at lower crunch levels.



                      but for a clean jazz tone, or a heavy distorted speed metal that needs an almost compressed evenness yet with excellent articulation between notes.. they shine like no other.

                      and one other strange detail.

                      there is very little difference between the single coil and the humbucker versions.. they sound VERY much the same, except for the position they are located in on the guitar..
