    This is now my 4th SG that I've owned, and maybe the first I'll be able to bond with. A Pelham Blue Sg Standard with '57 classic pickups. (my favorite pickups for an SG) And the best of all, the first one I've owned that doesn't do the neck dive. My previous SG's all had neck dive issues that drove me nuts, but this one doesn't seem to have that issue for me, so I'll be spending the next week or so doing nothing in my spare time but playing this guitar. BTW, I got it in basically unplayed condition for $800, a good buy IMO!

    I agree.
    I prefer covers on HB pups.
    Sweet deal, too.

    Peace - Deeve

    Nice. As I love blue guitars I like that "un-aged" version of Pelham blue better than the "aged" version they are using on the 2019 SG Specials.

    That's a great looking SG! I love how the colour of the cable matches your guitar. Congrats!

    I never even noticed that until you pointed it out. The cable is actually more of a teal green, but they do match up nicely!
