    I was on a waiting list for a new one for several months and wasn’t supposed to get it until January but i was fortunate to find this one for sale from the same seller as a demo model. So I cancelled the other one and scooped this up. No signs of wear on it at all.
    First thing I noticed when I first plugged it in is how well the wiring harness preforms. Any movement of the tone/volume knobs brings a response. I can play on the crunch channel of my 6100, turn the volume down to 1 on the guitar and get a very nice clean tone still with decent volume.
    I did not expect that.
    Also the stock p90s are much better than ones I have played in the past. Wider tone palate and not close to as noisy.
    I also did not expect that and planned on throwing DiMarzios in even before I got the guitar. I don’t think I will now.
    Wide 50s C shape neck. Plays great, stays in tune under duress. Tuners and vintage buttons are excellent.
    I have to get used to that bridge being right there where my left hand is, pretty much resting on it while playing. This guitar reminds me a bit of a poor mans custom shop reissue.
    So far it’s been great.....

    Faded Pelham blue.
    Glad you like it and thanks for the photo fix as well. I’ll figure out how to resize pics someday, maybe...

    Thank you guys for the love, it really is a nice guitar that has the look and sound of an early sg. It’s going to be my daily driver for a while for sure.

    You just reminded me I don't have an SG yet! I also 'suddenly' realized I need a Guitar with P90s!

    That's a beautiful Axe, Congrats!:wub:
