    The price was just too good to pass up. Like what I paid for a '69 Thinline
    tele RI in like ~2007. CHEEP.

    Faded series SG of some sort, I believe a 3-pickup. Prior owner stripped
    it and refinished it just barely well enough that I don't need to mess with
    re-doing it. BARELY. It's got a 'Burny' vibrola-deal. Came with FOUR
    pickguards -- for 3HB, 2HB, P90 and SC/Lipsticks (what it came with).
    The plan now is to fit P90s and if I like it like that get a cream guard.

    Pictured here with the other faded SG, which I absolutely love.

    The lipstick pickups are so vibey--I'd leave it like that for fear of taking away some of that magic (assuming you like it, that is).

    I really like that aqua-ish color. Probably the last two guitars types I've never owned but desire; an SG and a PRS.

    Thanks, all..!


    Looks just good enough from just far enough away..!

    The lipsticks are okay. I miss having a P90 guitar. Had a junior a while back, looking to get
    some of those sounds back in the arsenal.

    Congrats! That is super cool.

    Was probably a 2007 SG 3 Faded. Has a weird almost-swimming-pool-but-not-quite route.

    There was a 6 way rotary switch and tone and volume for controls.

    Way koo! You scored. SGs are the bomb. Since it's been refinished, it can be a player and you don't have to worry about it too much. Play the hell out of it and enjoy it.
