Epiphone Restricted Edition Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar, Tv Yellow

Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar, TV Yellow

  • A real Les Paul boiled down to the fundamentals with one effective Humbucking pickup.
  • Bolt-on Mahogany neck with SlimTaper neck profile.
  • Rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium/jumbo frets.
  • Premium hardware which includes Nickel hardware, compensated wrap-around bridge and covered 14:1 tuners.
  • Restricted Lifetime warranty.

The well-known no-nonsense, 1 pickup Les Paul Junior electric guitar in a limited edition, Amazon.com exclusive, classic Television Yellow finish. The Les Paul Junior has extended been a preferred for almost everything from down and dirty rock and roll, to meanstreet blues, to raw garage punk. With a light all-mahogany physique and a single screaming pickup, this guitar is completely down to company, even though surprisingly versatile.

This restricted edition model from Epiphone swaps out the much more standard P-90 configuration for a effective humbucker pickup, and retains the straightforward one volume, a single tone knob controls. The guitar attributes a bolt-on mahogany neck with a SlimTaper profile, a rosewood fingerboard with 22 frets, and premium nickle hardware.

The Les Paul Junior was initially made to place a higher quality instrument into the hands of players with a lot more restricted budgets and this limited edition version of it from Epiphone achieves that objective as no other model has just before. This classic Television Yellow version is only available in an Epiphone for a limited time.

    I happened to see this guitar on Amazon and could not believe the price. It looked just like an old Gibson Les Paul Junior TV Model I used to own back in the late 60′s (wish I still had it) I had my doubts that the Epiphone would be any good since the price was so low but I know Amazon has a pretty good return policy so I thought what the heck I’ll order it and send it back if I don’t like it. I was pleasantly suprised. As one commenter mentioned the guitar is more yellow than it appears in the picture on Amazon and the finish is a little uneven but it’s a great looking guitar and really captures the flavor of the original. At first it played a little stiff but I decided to replace the strings with some Earnie Ball 10′s and that made a huge difference.

    I had read that the guitar doesn’t stay in tune and I thought I would need to replace the tuning keys but I think the problem is with the nut. The strings get hung up there. I put some graphite lubricant on the nut and that helped but I will probably have the guitar guy I use fix or replace the nut. I think it stays in tune about as good as my 70′s Gibson Les Paul.

    I also thought I would replace the pickup with a Seymour Duncan but the Epiphone pickup isn’t bad at all and I will probably leave it for now. The only real change I have made is to add straplocks. A lot of reviewers have said this is a good starter guitar and they are right, but I have been playing for 40 years and own many much more expensive guitars – still I can see where this guitar will get a lot of use and will be a nice addition to my collection. One of the things I like is that the guitar is very light and is great for just sitting around practicing. The neck is great and the string height was perfect for me (very low) right out of the box. I didn’t bother to buy a case but it fits perfectly in my Gibson Les Paul case. The only limitation is that there is only one pick up so the guitar is not real versatile but for just rockin out it’s great.

    Right after I bought mine Amazon raised the price but I still think it’s a good deal. If you are interested in this guitar I would not hesitate to buy it – just replace the strings. My first Epiphone and I am very impressed.

    I had no idea how good this guitar would be because I couldn’t find a review anywhere, but I ordered it anyway because it was only $99 and at the worst i could use it as a mod guitar. I’d played a normal Epi junior before but never the limited edition, which are more expensive and much more rare. I think the main difference is color, but also the pickup sounds a little better and this guitar was much more comfortable than the normal one I played, which was from a few years ago and pretty worn. When the guitar showed up I took it out and it was a ton more yellow than the picture shows. It’s actually bright yellow, not the natural/sort of yellow in the picture. I plugged it in and it sounded pretty good but kept slipping out of tune. After I stretched the strings it stayed in tune better but it still slips out more than it should. I’m planning on putting on locking tuners. The pickup is much better than it should be for that price. It’s not great, but it sounds amazing for the price. It was set up well out of the box, good action and no warping in the neck. All in all, for the price this thing is amazing. Get it before it goes back up to $250 or whatever it was before.

    Been playin’ 25+ years, I mod/alter more than I play & have owned many guiatrs,amps & effects from the cheapest to the most expensive (vintage Memory Man, Les Paul Custom, Marshall JCM800,TS808,etc). I don’t write very many reviews & I’am intimate w/ my stuff…I really do need a life! So w/ some credit I can say it’s a great guitar for the money. Lot’s of resonance when played unplugged, inotation is good & stays in tune w/ a little graphite on the nut. May replace the tuning keys. And of course very moddable.
    But why 3/5 stars? Within 48 hours of playing it stopped working, no output! After inspecting w/ an experienced eye I found a bad soldering point to the volume pot. Easy fix for an experienced player but what about the 10yr kid on Christmas morning or a Birthday?
    As stated by Epiphone, “setup & inspected in the USA” but craftmanship in Indonisia is questionable.
    Bottom line, buy it! For the beginner any deefct would be covered under warranty & the experienced could repair any minor defect such as mine.
