Never played one, but a humbucker instead of P90 in a LP Jr. is pure blasphemous.

I have played a few in stores and almost walked out with one, but these were used for $75. Three out of four of them had heel cracks in the paint finish. Almost all three had slanted bridge posts and fairly high action for my tastes, but I was thinking, if I got one, for it to be a beater guitar.

yeah, for less than $100, you can resell it later.

Another vote for shit.

Especailly when I managed to get a set neck LP JR DC copy with a P90 for 100 new.

I've never played a decent bolt on Epi.

Yeah the bolt-on SG (G-310?) they do is abysmal.

Is that even an issue?

Not really for the price, but heel cracks are one of my OCD annoyances, so I always say no to crack.

I had an LP Special I that I got from GC for like $100 during one of their sales, and I have to say, shockingly playable and decent. One of these:

http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/ENJREBCH?utm_source=none&utm_medium=PPC&utm_campaign=none&gclid=CJ-Tz7bll7MCFROnPAodpWsAIQ

I resold it to a friend who was just learning guitar, and I thought it was a great $100 guitar. The body was featherweight, the neck was highly decent and easy to play, the frets were pretty good, the action was good too. Intonation was about as good as wraparounds get, and the sound was a bit muffly and wooly like cheap Epiphones are but overall, if you had trouble sounding good with that guitar, the problem is you, not the guitar.

If it had a wraparound it wasn't an LP Special II like the type you linked to, they've always come exactly as shown in the pic. The workmanship on their necks is horrendous and the same as the LP Junior in the OP, also the same neck as the G-310 bolt on SGs and bolt-on SG Juniors, they're pretty much all the same guitars neck-wise. Over the years various decent examples have sneaked out but it's not universally common by a long way. They mostly feel/perform terribly, never mind the sound.

Also the wraparounds on the Juniors are intonated.

Tis a "lightning bolt" like the kind devised for SG Juniors back in the 60s... a Badass is more like a TOM with individually adjustable saddles which is anchored by stop tail studs, sort of a hybrid design.

It wasn't Special II, it was called Special I. I believe those are limited editions given to Guitar Center.
