      I've got one. VERY nice neck, though it's neck-heavy. (like some SG's)
      I like it. BGmcaw has one, too. He didn't like it as much.

        I've got this early production 1 pickup model



        The upside: It looks good.

        The downside: It sounds bad. Even a new pickup and total electronics replacement didn't help it. It just sounds dead and lifeless and is about 2 pounds too heavy for a Jr.

            I think perhaps bgmcaw might have got a bad one, early in the production
            run. Mine has decent sustain, great fretwork, good tuners and the PUPs
            are actually more than decent. YMMV, though.

                A good wide strap makes a big difference, try a 3" one.
                I was watching a Brian May "starlicks" tape & the body styles of the two
                guitars are rather similar.

                    The tuners and the fret work were good on mine too. I did swap out the tuners with black ones but that was purely a cosmetic change. I also changed out the bridge with a black badass style one from GFS.

                    The pickup was good too. I put it in my Global SG Jr-ish copy and it sounds great in there.

                    My only real issue with it is the weight and lack of resonance.

                      Thought about buying one a while back... If i recall correctly a lot of people said they were very heavy and not very lively guitars. I may be wrong though.

                        there must be alot of variation, mine isnt heavy, and is quite lively and resonant. i should wieght it one day. my guestimate is about 7.5 lbs
