    I'm curious about those.

    I've owned a black re-issue dog eared P 90 SG Jr and taded it.

    I've owned a red re-issue soap bar P 90 SG Jr and traded it.

    I've kept my '62 SG/LP Jr for about 30 years.

    I bought it for $325.00 with upgraded yellow lined hard case before the vintage market got crazy.

    It's lite as a feather.

    Huge fan of the simplicity of the wrap tailpiece. I snagged a used R4 with the possible idea of scrounging old P90's and harness for it, but danged if that thing doesn't sound perfect as is. And the intonation is phenomenal! Didn't even need a compensated bridge!

    Have fun with them!

    In 2018 Gibson did a really good limited production run on Les Paul and SG juniors. I bought one. Really cool guitar. Gibson decided to put an old pre Les Paul era logo on it which didn’t make sense. I had no issue with the logo personally. They did not repeat that on the 2019 version.

    The 2018 limited run juniors are great guitars.
