    Scored an amazing 2014 Historic 57 Les Paul Jr yesterday. I played the 3 in stock, 2 gloss, 1 VOS and the VOS was the one I couldn't stop playing. An aweome guitar! Pricey yes, but with all that's happening with the Gibson Custom Shop I'm thinking this will be a safe investment. Check her out!

    Here she is next to my 2013 R8 in Gibbons Burst with under wound custom buckers. Both are amazing. Perhaps one day in the far future they'll have a R6 (chambered?) to keep them company.

    No such thing as a safe investment with the modern stuff

    Am I missing something about the Juniors? I mean, what's the appeal?

    Not knowing much about them, they look like they should go for $800 - $1k at most. And the term "junior" typically says "Hey, this is a kid's guitar" or "An entry level guitar".

    I just don't understand the $2k - $3k pricetag. Oh right, Gibson......


    Of course, I'm not meaning to knock the OP's purchase. I just want to know.
