LP JR. Clones and Knockoffs

Postby Iommic Pope » Wed Nov 30, 2016 6:59 am

So, I've fallen in love with these:

89 LP Jr. DC.
In that tobacco burst or in TV white.

But the realist in me knows that I'll probably never shell out for one.
So, who makes em like that?
One or two pups is fine, p90s are great, and I'm a big fan of the TOM bridge, so that's a must, as is a set or thru neck.

This one is also rad but fuck that price for a guitar as beat as that:

Not holding my breath for a similar era Orville or Burny but I know they're an option.
Any modern builders?
Help me out, babes.

Yep. :thumb:

Non adjustable bridge... how do you set the intonation if you change string gauge?

I think there are set screws behind the bridge posts which allow you to adjust the angle of the bridge.
