It’s a unique looking guitar, so good, but honestly prefer the ‘old’ and ‘actual’ Junior he had.
I love the look of a traditional junior (and honestly prefer it). I especially dig taking the traditional body shape and pickup config and doing them in cool finishes, like this 1954 Junior he had refinished

I just really wanted to try his newer signature because I already own a p90 loaded junior and I want something with humbuckers, and I like single pickup guitars.

Beautiful. I just tried one of these yesterday. Neck profile was amazing (my favorite medium between a 50's and 60's neck profile), but the pickup wasn't great. I definitely think something like a Duncan JB would have been a better fit. The shop also had the action set a bit high, so it was minorly uncomfortable to play. I ended up passing on it, but if I see one pop up again, I'll probably still try it.

Still have GAS for an Ibanez AZ. Just sold an EMG HetSet and my Jim Root Terror. Things are moving. Now I have to wait for the two models I like to arrive at the end of the month.

The great thing about selling the Jim Root Terror, which I honestly didn't want to sell is that I sold it to my Bass player who is also our studio guy. I only use this amp in the studio. So now I will end up using it just as much, it's just not mine anymore.
I was talking to my wife about the AZ and she was wondering why all of the sudden I want to buy this guitar, when for a little bit less cash I can have a guitar I've wanted for 10 years. I thought about it. If I buy the AZ, afterwards I will still want the other guitar that I've wanted for so long. If I buy the other guitar, by the next time I've saved up enough to buy a new guitar, I might no want the AZ anymore.

Considering the above, I did a thing. It should arrive today or tomorrow. I had to order it online, because no store in my area has it. Also, I can check it out and if anything is wrong, I can return it and request a new one. From my memory, the last time I played one, I loved it. So I will spend some time with it before making my decision final.
