    Hey everybody! I’m new to the forum, ran across it in a google search and thought it looked like a cool community.

    Anyway, I’ve been dreaming of getting a Gibson SG since I was about 9. Spent the majority of my guitar playing life with a pretty cheap setup. $150 BC Rich Mockingbird, $89 fender acoustic, $20 Peavey pawn shop find amp.

    I worked my butt off and now at a point in life that I have enough money to get some cool toys. Most of the people I work with choose guns and boats as their toys, (very typical ND) but my tastes are a bit different.

    Been waiting for just the right SG to come along before buying, and wanted to be sure I was gonna love it. No guitar shops in my area that sell Gibson guitars so I’m stuck with ordering online. Sweetwater has always treated me well so I’m pretty loyal to them most of the time.

    With the release of the new 2018 models, Sweetwater dropped the price on the 2017 SG Standard T a few hundred bucks and I jumped on it! A very welcome addition to the family, and really feeling like the Angus Young I’ve always dreamt of being. lol

    Thanks for reading, and hope I can be a great contributor to the community!

    2017 is a great year. I recently got a 2017 Pelham blue. If yours is a good as mine we'll both be happy campers for years to come.

    Had a similar experience on a Greyhound with a Girl we picked up in Montana. We made out in the back of the bus all the way through ND and both went our sep. ways in Denver. What a great memory.
