    Was doing some wheeling and dealing and came across a nifty black SG. Had to have it. Here it is getting acquainted with a friend. Anyone have one these black ones? E27CBC83-122E-46D9-9415-8378FEFFC7A4.jpeg

    I have a black on black Std bt I think I'm going to sell it. I want a 335 and not a fan of the 490/498 pickups in the SG. Other than that its a great guitar

    Awesome looking guitars, I especially dig the pick guard on the black one. Congrats.

    I have a red one just like this and I'm the weird guy out. I love those pickups and it's my best sounding and playing Gibson. If I were to ever buy another one it'd be a Standard in black just like yours.

    I, once again, must confess my regret for ever parting with my SG. Congrats! Enjoy both those fine guitars!

    I agree. I like black SG's, but that one would look better with black parts instead of creme...IMO...

    I got a black '16 Std with the 490/498 setup also and I wasn't a fan of the 490/498 combo originally. Had a 490/490 Faded T that to me sounded more balanced. And then there's scelestus who likes that combo. I've gotten used to them, supposedly that was the standard set up years ago. Although tbh I sometimes think about getting a 490 bridge pup and swapping out the 498. I like mine and it's nor going anywhere soon.
