    The Junior is worth a lot more.

    If you want the Pro sell the Junior and buy the Pro. You'll end up with a lot of cash as well.


    Yep....

        No. If you really want a 70s era LP, sell the SG and buy two or three of them.

        D


        This is the correct answer.


        If you don't want the SG, sell it for what it's worth and buy the Les Paul you want.

          absolutely NOT!!!!

          Gruhn has a 63 SG Jr. up for sale at $2850.....and the '78 ain't worth anywhere near that.....i don't care WHAT GC sell s them for.

          i had one....nice guitar....but not worth 3 grand


          I checked some Gibson Les Paul Pro prices on Gbase and they were all the the 2G range, so basically the 'value' of the SG Jr. and the Pro are pretty close. And, just for comparison sake, Gruhn's pricing is usually on the high end of vintage market prices, too.

            SG Jrs seem to not command much of a price, wheeras as basically any decent Les Paul does

                Straight trade? No way, maybe your guitar and a grand. The Pro Deluxe had an ebony board, FWIW.

                    No way, those 70's era Norlin are terrible as a general rule, there are a few gems, but that SG Jr. is worth more now, and in 10 years it will be worth 5x what the Les Paul is. This is one of those deals you'll tell people about someday that start with "I could kick myself".

                      That is a poor generalisation, there are plenty of good Norlin guitars, and the late 70s and early 80s are some great guitars as well, the late 60s and the 70s LP will be the collectors of the future.

                      The higher end Sgs will hold good value, but unless you have a mint Sg Jr, with OHSC you won't accrue much value

                        And that my friend, with all due respect, is where you and I differ. I have played at least 25 Norlin era Gibsons, and maybe two of them were nice. The other 23 missed their calling in life as canoe paddles. Also, if you honestly think early 60's SG Juniors aren't going to rise in value, I disagree with you there as well. I remember when you could buy early 70's Jazzmasters & Jaguars for $350 or so any day of the week.......
                        Ah well, if we all agreed on everything, wouldn't the world be boring!
