    Dual p90s, check; wraparound bridge, check; cool and uncommon colour, check. Yep, ticks a lot of boxes for me too.

    One thing though, the neck pickup looks really far away from the neck. Is that where they usually are? For some reason it looks a bit out of place to me.

    The more I look at different TV Yellow or Limed Mahogany finishes, the more my head spins. Pictured below are a few samples for comparison. It's a difficult color to photograph and often looks different when viewed in person.

    Photographing color accurately is one of the most trickiest things. Unless done with that specific intention, e.i. accurate depiction of color, saturation, hue, temperature, and lightness of color will be all over the place each time you photograph an object (e.g. yellow SG) in different lighting conditions. I bet some of those swatches, if printed the way we see them on your grid, would look nothing like the actual color of the guitar, if compared in the physical world - side by side.

    However, this is a great looking guitar:

    Since I already have two SG Classics (one ebony, one cherry), I want a third one in the finish pictured below. But to switch things up, have it built with a small guard instead of batwing, and humbuckers instead of P-90's.

    TV Yellow SG Special

    Small guard
    Two Humbuckers
    Bound neck with dots
    Headstock logo as inlay
    Gibson Deluxe keystone tuners
    Nashville bridge with tailpiece
    SG Rounded Neck Profile
    Gloss TV Yellow with grain filled but visible through color
