Don't be fooled by the "JUNIOR" moniker, it's almost full sized and doesn't mean it's for kids, it just means it's part of Epiphone's inexpensive intro line of guitars .
I wanted to get the perfect guitar to go along with Rocksmith, and after countless hours of searching the internet I came upon a great post from the poster GreenJem recommending this specific guitar for several specific reasons, here are the highlights.

1. A good guitar for playing Rocksmith and a good guitar for playing on your own are not the same thing. Rocksmith does not respond well to guitars that have active pickups or single-coil pickups. It just doesn't detect notes very well with these kinds of pickups, especially when you are playing complicated/fast notes. So choose a guitar with a humbucker pickup. You don't even need more than one pickup because the game detects notes best when you're only using the bridge pickup.

2. You need a guitar with at least 22 frets in order to play all of the songs. Some Stratocasters, in particular, only have 21 frets.

3. Stay away from unnecessary "lightning bar" bridge/tailpiece combinations, and tremolo systems. Tune-o-matic bridges and stopbar tailpieces hold the tuning solidly and the bridge is much easier to intonate.

4. Don't spend a ton of money! Get a guitar that you can beat the heck out of. Again, if you graduate to playing in a band or outside of the game, then you've got a different set of criteria for building your sound. Don't worry about that for Rocksmith!

I definitely recommend this guitar to anyone who doesn't own a real Gibson SG. Adult or Youngster, this guitar rocks. At the $100 price point you can't go wrong, for another $80 toss in your favorite Seymour Duncan humbucker and you have a guitar that sounds like it cost $500 or more. Don't let the Epiphone name deter you as some think this is the cheap Asian equivalent and it's no good. This guitar is quality built with USA "designed" parts. It comes loaded with 500k Alpha potentiometers which are pretty decent. The action and sustain are nice and it's light weight (5lbs) makes long playing sessions a breeze. It's simplistic utilitarian design let's you concentrate on your playing rather than messing around with switches and a bunch of knobs. The intonation is easily set with a few small adjustments. Once again I have to mention the simplistic design, it lends itself well to someone just learning how to customize and upgrade a guitar. The satin finish is smooth and beautiful looking. The matte finish on the back of the thin profile neck makes moving around the neck easy as can be. The stock humbucker is acceptable at this price, but will leave you wanting more. Recommended upgrades...Seymour Duncan bridge humbucker (for pricing and quality reasons $70-$90) and replace the stock ceramic capacitor with an orange drop ($2-$5) to really open the range of tones you can get from this guitar. Also the machine heads (tuners) are acceptable for the price, but a nice set of Schaller machine heads ($50-$75) makes a world of difference. All in all with upgrades you're looking at a $200-$250 guitar, but any other guitar you buy stock at that price point will sound like crap compared to the beast YOU put together. I've been playing guitar for 13 years and own a few good quality Gibson guitars, but I picked this up because it was on sale for $99 at Guitar Center and I wanted a project to mess with. I highly recommend this to anyone.

A good guitar! This guitar does not seem to lose any of its full and powerful sound just because it is a bit smaller. I suppose this is to be expected since it is amplified, but it is hard not to expect a smaller sound out of a smaller instrument. Let me assure you this is not the case. It plays fast and with a full sound. I would recommend this if your son, daughter, or other youngster is serious about playing hard rock. I wouldn't recommend it for softer or higher pitched playing, but that isn't what this guitar is about, and if you want a hard metal sound, this is the one for you.

I bought this for my 13 year old who often plays my Gibson SG. To save my relic I got him this guitar, when it arrived I did not expect it to be in the best condition, it has a Satin finish all over, thin neck, good strings, the pick up is nice, the pick guard is a little bubbled up but still looks nice, sounds good. I was thoroughly surprised with this guitar. Worth every penny, I cant get over how light this is, its half the weight of my Les Paul. I think I may buy another to have just to mess with for myself. I recommend it to every one looking for a cheap SG style guitar.

Got this for my son's 10th birthday, thinking that Junior would be smaller than the regular SG. It's probably about an inch shorter. Humbucker sounds good for the price, and the matte finish is great. It doesn't come ready to play though, the string height is very high. I'm familiar with truss rod adjusting so was able to get it lower, but not much. I'll need to spend another $80-$100 on having someone set it up right. Also the bridge is NOT adjustable for each string. For a beginner that's probably not an issue, but if you are planning on playing out you'll need to upgrade that.
So, for a first-timer this is a good deal (with a little setup help), but for a gigging musician be ready to spend more than the price of the guitar on getting it setup right.
