I like my Les Paul junior a lot. The biggest problems that I found with this guitar is that the nut is made from (I think) brass. It's not a durable metal and it didn't take long for my strings to wear the nut (less than 3 months). However, Gibson F.O.C. gave me a replacement nut made out of titanium. The G-Force tuner is a gimmick. My guitar rarely gets in tune and it hardly stays in tune... I even use nut sauce on the strings. The neck is too wide for me. I like comfortable Strat necks and the Junior doesn't feel anything like a comfy Strat neck. Other than these 3 problems, I think that the guitar sounds great and resonates extremely well.
