I've had this for 20 years. I've got some other great guitars, but this is the one I'd keep if I had to have only one. It's also the guitar that I've spent the least on. My partscaster builds even cost me more. :badteeth:

Lovely flame! Very Pearly Gates-y.

What's this? I've been fascinated by different wraparound bridges lately and haven't seen one like this.

I'm not even sure. I think it's a Wilkenson maybe. I've got a Schroeder on my other Junior and that one is really nice too.

The Gibson one Jim's linked and the MojoAxe are both compensated for unwound G strings (instead of for a wound G, like the originals). You can see the difference in the lightning bolt shape at the G string. If you use an unwound G, they're good to go. :tu:

I tried to squint real hard to see if it's stepped like the Gibson lightning bolt, or if it's a "Z" shape.

I have one like that on my Olympic and it works great. They can be found for cheap here and your money isn't going to Henry. :hihi:

I got a MojoAxe wraparound for my Junior, since it already had a replacement when I got it. It's kind of expensive, but I felt it was the right thing to do with this one. It looks nice and also works.

Since starting this thread, a new favourite has emerged.

Despite being rather unplayable (tiny, worn down frets and a bent neck), the sound of this thing is MINDBLOWING. Straight up Willie Johnson era Howlin Wolf.

It sounds like this whether it’s plugged into a tweed deluxe or a Roland Cube 40!
