    That's kind of what I was getting at - LP shape with flat top maple cap. Thanks.

    ..Any unpainted?

    Wasn't there one in the Gruhn column in last month's Vintage Guitar mag?

    Back in the 70's Jan Akkerman got (who was it? Jol Danzig?) to put a maple cap on his Les Paul Jr. Danzig said something along the lines of "despite the stop bar tailpiece/bridge, it plays perfectly in tune".

    If you Google Akkerman pics you will see him with a Gibson that looks a little out of proportion. Apparently a clever guy!

    I've seen solid maple Jrs many years ago.

    The one in Gruhn's column in the recent Vintage Guitar mag was a solid, all-maple Junior (not just the top).
