    Do they live up to the hype?

    The Les Paul Juniors seem to be well loved.


    I recommend a used Hamer.  Seriously, I remember trying to talk myself into buying a T386 (the 335 style model), but I couldn't do it.  High quality craftsmanship?  Yes, sure, but at the end of the day, it is still made in China.  Maybe you can get past that.  I couldn't, even though I love Japanese instruments.

    When the Avalon arrived, I sent an email to thank Kiz for the guitar and mentioned that it had really good coil-tap sounds.  An e-mail reply simply said, "It has coil taps"?  

    We've had a good time with this over the years and it's time for payback.

    I bought this Gibson '58 Junior with the humbucker a few years ago.  There are five cherry, five harvest yellow (a natural with a yellowish tint) and five TV.  I noticed that a guy bought one of them and posted it on a Les Paul forum.  I told him I had one and he remarked that he really liked the tapped sound as it was like a weaker P-90.  

    Yup.  I didn't know it had a tap for the pickup.  What goes around...

    Great!  Now you have inspired legions of HFC fans to start tugging their knobs... to check for coil taps.

    The guitar certainly looks like a Hamer USA (to me) from the pictures, and it says so in the title of the listing, but here are the specifics in the ad, saying that the guitar is of Korean origin:
