It's a Hercules GS414B A/G Guitar Stand, Kev.  It has a neat Auto-Grip yoke so I don't have to fuss with a strap...

It's got special foam on the yoke and leg contact points to protect the guitar's finish.  It's a heavy and very stable floor stand.


Now I can take a picture of my 360/12C63 next to the AC30 without using the pillow.   ;)

Thanks, Kev.  And for years I wanted a solid body.  I think the Les Paul Junior is a great no-nonsense guitar and a fantastic bargain.  Made in Nashville, mahogany body, bound baked maple fretboard, Tune-O-Matic Bridge, Klusons, two P-90s and a toggle switch all for $629 new.

I dont think they will export goods that are sold locally Baz

I just checked an Australian online guitar center, Kev.  The LP Junior sells for nearly double what I paid.    :(

It looks like MSRP is the best you get in Australia.  That's a shame, really.    :(

Nice axes, Kev!  Your Les Paul Studio 60s Tribute should sound like my Junior with its P-90s!  These are great no-frills Les Pauls for sure!

Gongratulations, Kevin, and enjoy them.
