I have been looking into getting a LP Jr for a few months now and have been thinking of pulling the trigger, I just need to know if that seems good.

I found one on reverb with a little neck, and a humbucker.

What do you think?

I think that is the one with the fixed bridge so you cannot set the intonation is it?

if you play alone no problem bud with a band and the intonation is of ( which can already happen with a trussrod adjustment ) I would rethink that and look at other Epiphones, they have some great guitars and not to expensive.

My problem is that I can't for the life of me find a guitar that I like.[/p]

P.S. Thank you for responding.

why not, it took a few electrics to find the one I will be keeping, and have owned and played daily for over a year.

Is there a way you can go to a local guitar store and try out an LP Jr? a "try before you buy"?

There are 2 guitar centers near me and another music store but unfortunately they sold it to another company and now all it sells are purses and gold and the occasional strat knockoff.[/p]

Geez, that stinks. If you want to try it, then go for it if you can find it elsewhere.
