Thast thing is dead sexy. Love the aggressive lines/edges on it. Still SG - but very different.
SG Junior 2018
Great sounding guitar, weight about 2,5 kg.
I haven't read the whole thread, but this is probably the only shell pink SG in it.
68 reissue SG jr and 2013 SG standard
I still have just the one lowly SGJ that I bought new in late 2013 on blowout from Muso's Friend, and made a couple purely aesthetic mods (pickguard, Bobbin Toppers) to. I posted it in January 2014, but not a very good photo.
Recently took a new pic. A little better.
That's a beauty wow!
That's gorgeous - the tort scratchplate really works with that colour.
Yes, I love everything about it - beyond the cool color, it's really a great player.
I got the itch for SGs after that, and recently added a more traditional looking one, which is just as good.
Here's my Gibson 2018 SG HP II in Mojave Fade
Some words from Gibson:-
The SG Standard HP is a classic SG double-cutaway style guitar with the new twist of an elegant AA figured maple top added to the traditional solid-mahogany body and neck. Featuring advanced materials including titanium adjustable zero fret nut and bridge saddles for improved performance, next-gen Gibson G FORCETM tuners, frets over binding, soloist neck width, and fast-access heel. Immense tones are driven by two hum-bucking pickups with DIP switch and 2 push-pull top hats. A slightly thicker body provides for more precise weight o set and overall improved balance in the guitar.
Just got this 'secondhand' 2018 Standard. I say 'secondhand' because it had the film on the pickguard and was completely unmarked, but described as 'used' by the shop. I traded in my avatar Tele to get it (I put the Tele back to standard and it played better than ever afterwards ).
I only have a thin cheap strap on it right now, but no sign of neck dive as some report about SGs. I also love the locking tuners (never had them before) as it took me about 10 minutes, if that, to change the strings.
Sounds amazing through my Marshall Mini Jubilee and 2x12 cab.
Shop photos, so I need to take some of my own:
Took some photos of my own today. It sounds fantastic through my Marshall Mini Jubilee, so it's only fair I took a photo of them together. I fitted the switch washer that was in the case as I prefer it on:
I have this MIJ Antoria from the 70's, my first SG style guitar.
And this Vintage VS6 that I got for £80:00
This is my most recent purchase a 2015 Fireburst SG Special with 61's Rhythm & Lead zebra pick ups.
2014 Standard '61.
Picked up this '17 Standard back in Mar. of this year for $800, in unplayed condition. I truly love SG's, and this one is my 4th now...(the other 3 are gone). I've found that no 2 SG's play the same, and you have to really search for the one that "fits" right. This Pelham blue one is the one that fit that bill for me, (it's well balanced). It's also in my opinion, (the SG), the most bang for your buck out there, and the '57 classics sound awesome!
I have the same guitar in black. Fantastic. I didn't think I'd like the locking tuners but the string changes are SO fast now.
I agree; I've never had a guitar with locking tuners before. I'm pretty quick at re-stringing my Fenders which have the older vintage slotted tuners, but it's so easy on the SG.
I ordered some reflectors, white switch tip and a blank truss rod cover, gives it more of a '61 vibe to go with the small pick guard.
