Gorgeous! Juniors always get me going. They just have this rambunctious vibe to em.

Can you tell us about the vibrato? You always hear about how awful they are. People use to talk about the Jazzmaster trem the same way. Just wondering if it's as bad as everyone says they are.

Its very primitive and doesn't have much travel really. I haven't used it that much yet to really give an expert opinion or anything but it doesn't seem to be anything like as good as a Jazzmaster trem, but doesn't totally throw things out of tune with light use. Probably is useable if you just want light trem use and properly set everything up.

If anyone who has used one more has any opinions on the trems usefulness though I'm interested too!

Aged Pelham Blue is pretty much up there with aged Lake Placid Blue. Maybe even better on the eye.
I totally agree. What a beautiful guitar!

Still very much loving this guitar, it really does play and sound as well as it looks. Not a mega fan of the tremolo though, but thats hardly a surprise as the only trem I've ever really liked is the Jazzmaster one. So when its string change time I may well string it on the wrap-around bridge and slide the tremolo arm piece off the base.
