    The regular version doesnt come with the shame of having purchased something associated with greenday.

    In all seriousness, you're probably just paying extra for the name.

    The Armstrong junior has the H-90 stacked pickups which sound good but are the noisiest pickups I've ever heard. I've played one of his guitars but didn't have a regular junior to compare side by side.

    The BJA also has the 60's slim taper neck.

    I bought a regular LP Jr from Musician's Friend a month ago, and it's got the 60's slim taper neck too.
