I am thrilled with my Epi lp jr with the P90. Out of the box it needed a little help but all was easily done. Most cheap guitars need some detailing to get them into playing condition though so it still gets great marks here.Nice neck and frets and over all very nice finish. The P90 pickup sounds great either playing country clean or old skool rock and roll. Old rock and blues is where this little guy really shines.The only thing I can say about this guitar is that it is not really ready for a beginner unless it is set up before playing. I had to lube the tuners, change the strings (to 10's), reslot the nut, set the intonation and use steel wool on the frets. Now plays in tune and feels just great.An excellent buy with excellent potential if you put an hours worth of work into it.

I bought a "junior" about a year ago, and frankly, it was a waste of money. Poor tonality from the getgo, and a non adjustable bridge. The neck is good, with plenty of feel. Tuners need to be replaced off the top, as well as the bridge. Buy a Fender Squire series, and you get twice as much guitar for the bucks. If you are very low budget like I am, spend it on something else. And this comes from a diehard Gibson/Epiphone fan. Sorry, but it reeks.

A unique sound, a great price...

By DaBlues

from Valier, MT

See all my reviews

I've been playing for a long time, and this is one of the best deals I've ever seen. A great, tough guitar and a great, unique sound that will fit any type of music. I play mostly classic rock and blues, and it really adds a snarl to the sound, and stands up respectably next to the "real" thing, a Gibson '58 Junior.

Amazing Tone and Vintage Vibe

By thehands

from NY

See all my reviews

I don't think you could ever dream of getting such a tone machine for such little money. Although the setup, purported to be "inspected and setup in the USA by #31" was the worst I've ever seen (can you believe 8/64" action?)a few turns of the wrenches and it came in beautifully. The tone is enormous, with the cream P-90 pumping out all you can handle volume wise. If you don't buy this guitar before they're all gone, you'll have missed one of the great opportunities in all of rock.

Don't get me wrong, I really like this guitar...

By Corbie

from Greenville, NC

See all my reviews

It's great for the price tag and I've wanted one for years, so I decided to go for the P-90 one. I'm happy to have it in my collection.Be prepared, however, as you may have to do a little work on it. Mine had a loose volume pot when I got it and I lost signal the second time I plugged in. A guitar tech friend of mine fixed it, but the point is that this is an inexpensive guitar and will not have had the same love in a factory as the higher dollar instruments. You do get what you pay for, you know.

Dont wait, BUY THIS GUITAR

By Graybeard19-AX-Vt

from Saint Joseph, Missouri

For this kinda cash, you gotta get one of these before they are gone, plain and simple.....buy this guitar, right now! Being an old school guitar player there are lots of vintage pros out there who have ONLY played on this kind of electric. One for sure comes to mind, Leslie West of Mountain fame. He played this, (yes the gibson model) when he recorded "Mississippi Queen" and "Nantucket sleighride",,,, turn up the volume, turn down the tone pot and rock on!At this price, you got a great axe for Pawn shop price......you wont be sorry!

Very happy with it

By Steve in Indy

from Indianapolis

See all my reviews

I really like this guitar. The neck and fretwork are topnotch and the single P90 sounds surprisingly nice. The tone control provides quite a bit of versatility. My only complaint is that the tuners are low quality, but they obviously had to make some compromises to bring this in at the price point they did. I smoothed the nut slots out a little with a small file and put some pencil lead in them, and now the guitar holds tune just fine. There is still some play in the tuners, but I can live with that considering how nice the neck is and how sweet the pickup sounds. All in all, this is a great value. It's quickly becoming my favorite guitar, and I have several that cost me quite a bit more.

Excellent buy

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I've owned both the epi junior with the humbucker and the one with the p-90, and the superiority of the p-90 model is amazing. The humbucker model had a terrible neck and bad intonation, and did not sound very good. the p-90 model was made in a different country all together, and is a superbly better guitar. For the money, or just on its own, its a great buy for beginners, or even the experienced player looking for that gritty p-90 "Green Day or some Townshend" tone. do not buy the humbucker model over this one.

Great Guitar,Great Price

By MercuryCrush

from Plymouth, MA

I bought this to replace my wife's Squier Strat. There in no comparison, the epi Jr. blows the Strat away. You can't beat a P-90 for a snarling sound. The finish and overall quality really blew me away. I wish they had guitars like this when I started playing. I'm gonna buy one for each of my sons.

Great slide guitar

By Root666

from Center Barnstead, NH

See all my reviews

I just got my Les Paul Jr 90 and I am quite pleased. I own a couple of other Epi's and I must say that their commitment to quality is impressive. For this price you can't go wrong. The look is what attracted me to this particular axe. The creme p-90 cover against the vintage sunburst is a really cool look. Then you plug it in and the tone is amazing. I love p-90's and have this particular axe tuned to open A and it really shines. It is a great guitar for slide. I can see why the one reviewer claims he is going to buy one for each of his sons as a first guitar. Get one and see what I am talking about.

for the price you cant go wrong

By player30yrs+

from NJ

See all my reviews

Always being fond of Gibson (Epiphone), I got one to see if anyone could make a good guitar for this price bucks. Well they did. The craftmenship was surprising, the finish was awesome and tone was great. I can compare the playability to my Les Paul Delux. The only thing I will change is the tunners (machine heads) as they are the only week part of the axe. I have been playing guitar for over 30 years and I can say this guitar shocked me for the price

Worth 3 times a much...

By Gitarrenspieler-qUSOL

from San Jose, CA

I picked this axe up from my local music shop cause it was the only one they had left and I really wanted one. I plugged it in to see if it was as good as they say and wow! this thing rocks. I like the vintage look and the light weight, while the slim neck is great for my smaller hands. The P-90 is great for that snarly Green Day sound, and will work as a great backup or even main guitar. I also have a Les Paul kit from Saga at home, which is cool, but its got that thick 50s neck which kinda sucks... but this little guy is worth ts weight in gold.

Great Guitar Even at This Price

By ICanSingChiodos689

from Jackson, MI

This guitar is so awesome! The P-90 dogear pickup is way better than I thought it would be. The price is good for shows when you're doing guitar flips, because if it breaks, just get another one with your money from the show.

By jardin57

from stoughton, ma

I find the quality and finish of this instrument shockingly good for it's price (or 3-4X the price). Mine's the ebony, and I'm looking over it again...smooth, refined, straight, well-intonated. Playability is good out of the box (yeah, the tuners seem to be its Achilles' heel). And the sound: I'm playing though just a microcube at the moment, and at first, thought, well, no big deal, but after tweaking the amp in various ways (gain,model,vol,etc)...as I said, "Hol-eee!"If you want that snarly, slammin' p90 sound and are strapped for cash (or maybe if you have $$, but would like an easy-on-the-shoulders travel/gig/rehersal option), then you really might want to at least try this axe out before they're gone, or you very well may regret it.

My first surf guitar!

By Unsprung

from Jacksonville, FL

See all my reviews

Comparing Epiphone vs. Gibson, and Fender vs. Squier is like comparing apples to oranges. I plugged my LP Jr 90 into both my Line6 Guitar POD 2.0 and Peavey TransTube 258 EFX, and was getting excellent surf tones out of it, despite the amps being solid state. I've ordered Gibson replacements, for the hardware and pickup, and it'll be every bit as good as a Gibson Melody Maker, for several hundred dollars cheaper! Still need to add a Bigsby B5, and this LP Jr 90 will be a fine surf guitar!

Just GET ONE

By TruKr

from Fort Worth, TX

See all my reviews

When I got this one, the action was way high, the tuners were awful (the tuners on the first one were not so bad). I bought a set of tulip button Kluson style tuners for it, ajusted the truss rod, lowered the bridge. Now, I just love the thing. I had planed to trsh the P90 that it came with and install a Gibson P90, but, now that I have it, I just don't know, she sounds pretty darn good. The neck fits very tight in the pocket, no seeable gap, the frets are very nice, I expected them to be rough, the finish is nice, I am amazed. I have a FEW guitars that cost a lot more, but this thing is just fun to play, and great for that old stuff that P90s rule at. Don't get too close to a high gain amp, your PC etc, the P90 is noisy around that stuff, but, I like the growl :)

Excellent Junior for the $

By TCB 13

from Northcoast, Ohio

Just got this guitar a couple of weeks ago. It plays really well, after the neck was reset (no big deal with the bolt on neck), and setting the poles on the pickup. It has an ultra fast neck, and is really light, even after hours of playing. A well recommended guitar, especially if you dig a P 90 pickup.

I bought this because I felt like it

By ccrocket

I like plain jane guitars. This one is all of that, until you plug it into something dirty. Then this little thing screams, so then I tried it clean and it sang a song for me. Tuners are no fun, but what would you expect for the price. This guitar is bringing out the punk in me, just because it sounds so good. Buy one now even if you don't want one.
