    Nice but that's to much for it.

      They were discontinued a few years ago.

      They were only around $700 at the time. $1200+ is way too much.

        I can get one for $800 from Music123 because they canceled my order for a Les Paul Studio Goldtop. Do you think it is worth $800?

          Did the ones for $700 have a gloss finish and a hardshell case?

            I think $800 sounds more reasonable if you really like the neck.

              I think I played one at Guitar Center a couple of weeks ago. It was nice, but not $1200 nice.

              If it has strings and plays, and makes a noise, I'll play it for whatever.

              Ibby 7 string for Blues,a Dano for teh brootalz, or a Steiny for Punk, I dont care what it is as long as it works!

                probably a good price but for some reason it doesn't really grab me like the 50s goldtop LP.

                    Gig bag, not sure about the finish. Either way, $1200+ is way too much for this one IMO.

                      Gig bag and faded finish; I just sold mine two weeks ago.

                      I guess I should have called M123 to see what they could do for me after receiving their voicemail.

                        Abso****************inglutely!

                        I have an "earlier version"



                        But this one has the P-100 pickups. (Plenty of folks were in a hurry to swap out those p'ups in theirs like Brian K and Chairborne but I sorta like the P-100s - but anyway-) For a while there, the only LP Jr Spc's you could get with P-90s were made for consumption in Japan. So this is a big deal. Before now you would have had to ordered one from Japan. But I would agree that it's not much more than the SG Classic as far as value goes, HOWEVER, the Junior Special does have a thicker body and therefore a deeper tone than the SG version - whichever way your tastes go on that - it's a different critter. Bottom line - I'd say for $800 it's a "no-brainer". I'd be looking to bend some plastic that still had some wiggle room left on it. (The one I pictured above cost $700 about a decade ago) But then again, I am an OCD GAS'r.

                        Well Dick, it's got a good beat, and I could dance to it, so I give it a 10!
                        I have opinions of my own,strong opinions but I don't always agree with them.

                          No, they were gigbag. And the finish was glossy.

                            I had a black one that was gloss. It did come with a gig bag. Sold it for ~$700 a few months ago:

                              I thought he was referring to the Faded DC Special since he said it was discontinued a few years ago. Those single cuts were discontinued much longer ago than that.
