With a few tweaks, a fantastic guitar
buddhuu, 15.05.2020
The brown DC Junior looks and feels absolutely great. The weight is comfortable - solid but not too much of a burden for the gigging player. The finish is very well done and really looks the part. Fit is neat and accurate.

The electrics are neat: full-sized Alpha pots and tidy wiring. The control cavity is shielded with conductive paint and the cavity cover with aluminium foil.

The Roswell pickup sounds really good. Not exactly a classic P90 sound but somewhere between that and a Tele bridge pickup vibe. A nice sound in its own right. One odd thing is that the pickup is very low beneath the strings and would benefit from spacers or shims to raise it up a few mm. I'll do that to mine next time I change strings and I expect it to improve the pickup's performance.

I play mine through an Artist Tweed Tone 20 R tube combo and it sounds exactly as I'd hoped it would.

The one slightly weak point is the bridge. It has a fairly sharp corner on the low E string saddle which makes for uncomfortable palm muting. Also, the available adjustment in both height and intonation are only just sufficient to get a good action and good intonation - several other owners have also noticed this - but both ARE achievable. Still, many players will want to replace the stock bridge with a third-party bridge that's a little lower in height and which allows the saddles to be move a fraction further back. Such bridges are available for £20 or £30 so it's no big deal.

While the basic guitar is an absolute spectacular bargain at this price, where it will really shine is as a high-quality platform for modification and customisation.

So far I'm really loving it. If it got stolen or lost I would immediately buy another one - or maybe two!

Faded Brown?
AkNimrod, 02.07.2020
I was on the fence between the DC and SC Junior. Faded Brown swayed me to the DC. Mine looks exactly like faded cherry and if the sound and feel were not so good, i would be disappointed.

Not bad
damo, 14.05.2020
This is a personal response. I just don't get on with this guitar.

Finish: very good, minor paint imperfections. Very visible seam where the neck is glued in- maybe because the coat is thin?

Pickup sounds good, almost like a strat bridge pick up but not as harsh.

Controls work ok but tone goes from bright to mud without much in between.

Frets are not sharp but are a little pokey and will need a polish.

Neck is slim. Body is very light. I prefer a slab of mahogany with this type of guitar, but then it is designed not be that so I can't complain.
