Any small outfits building vintage style Jrs?
Tokai and Edwards make some pretty bang on looking copies. Especially the Edwards. I have been considering buying one.
You can check out Huber Junior. You can customize your way with korina or mahogany, Gibby scale or Fender scale. Its getting great review from the Huber community.
There's some good info on Juniors in this thread, including info on makers other than Gibson:
Heritage H-137, with single or dual pickups.
Hamers best current offerings are Jr copies
Here's mine.....amazing instrument by a great builder!
Ron Thorn http://www.thornguitars.com/ Check out this one: http://www.thornguitars.com/galleryhtm/dc134.htm
I'm sorry, but there's no duplicating a real '58
+1 about Ron Thorn...
Ron was my first thought on this, though that Huber Jr. looks sweet!
Link to the Huber website?
I'd go with a Hamer. f.w.i.w. . .I just got a Special with two soapbars and replaced the Duncans with Lollars. Good move!
and the message board:
Thanks a lot.
I'm new guitar shopping always a great thing.
I feel like a fool, but I need an idea of the cost of the huber junior. Could someone in the know PM me with the price?
That is a one off custom but i would LOVE to see a Bluesmaster JR
I just got a Hamer Korina Jr.
It is without doubt the best looking, best sounding, best built, best playing guitar I've ever had.For me its perfect.
Really i should sell all my gibsons and buy more Hamers!!
Gadow has one.
+1 to BNB. All the smmall luthiers make cool guitars but for me the originals, especially '56-'59 in single and double cut blow away all the new wood.
