Memphis Les Paul Special/Junior

Post by METESKY on Sun Apr 07, 2013 8:44 pm

Just picked this up... couldn't resist the cute little fella. Interesting sort of blend of a Special with a Junior pickguard. Back in the day I modded a truckload of these. Juniors into Specials, Specials into... some freakish thing with two or three Humbuckers. That's what this reminds me of. It's like the guys at Memphis got a hold of a modded Junior and based the version on that. Go figure, eh?

Any way, for some reason most of us love these little mutts. Juniors and Specials, Esquires and Teles; it's Rock and Roll, baby. ;-)







These are the pics from the Craig's ad. If anyone's interested Ill post more when it arrive this week...

Interesting.
If those are "standard size" P90 dog ears, then the guitar body is indeed small. They look huge, no?

Please post more. Real good looker you stumbled upon. I almost bought a Memphis not too long ago for $79. Very unique, like a 70's Epiphone et270 looking thing.
