Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? case has started to come apart a little, won't stand up too well, but the guitar is pretty nice, It had a scuff on the body right out of the box, but I didn't mind. the electronics are perfect. General Your general opinion of this product. This is the most expensive guitar I've ever bought. I even waited 3 of the longest months of my life for this guitar to become available in red. I'm reviewing here to destroy all the myths about this guitar. I chose this model because it's the chuck berry color, the johnny thunders shape, and it's a gibson. The pros play these for a reason you know. After reading all the reviews, I had to check it out for myself, besides you can't just go into a store and buy this one off the shelf. The only other option was an over-priced ebay reissue for 2k, or the actual vintage jr's, along with 50 years of someone else's wear and a huge price, I chose this one, which I thought would be MY OWN version of the real thing. In other words I'd grow up with this one. It was the right move. Much cooler to just get a fresh Gibson, I felt like a rockstar the first day. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? THICK but bright. Cross bettween a fender and a les paul. more versatile than either. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Too dark, way darker than the image here. But since has lightened up to a real cool cherry. Not pink, or purple like it was out of the box. These are not loke the flat finished single cutaways, it's very glossy.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This is made as well as the VOS JR except I get to age it. I don't expect any problems with this JR. General Your general opinion of this product. As well made as my original JR's. Any serious musician should have this in their arsenal. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Depending on the amp I used with my 71 Marshall I got a nice raw sustain with smooth overdrive. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? It has just a little bit more shine then my 56 Special but the color was just right.
