I recently picked this up after a failed attempt at getting a newer SG with the sideways vibrola from a local pawn shop. I actually had my sights on a Telecaster for a long time. For some reason this guitar reminded me a bit of my ‘69 I had. I’ve never had a small guard SG and normally like rounded necks but it doesn’t feel as bad as I thought. After all, the ‘69 had a super thin neck and “Fretless Wonder” frets. Hopefully I’ll keep this one. I like the dark cherry color. The only real damage is around this area, a bit chewed up. I don’t know why and don’t seem to mind. The inlays look great.
