    Mid 90's Gordon Smith SG. This guitar has been through a few changes over the years but has ended up thus:
    Kluson tuners, Tusq nut, Axesrus Alnico 5 humbuckers, Kluson wraparound bridge, 1 Set of vol/tone pots removed, diy scratchplate. It plays and sounds amazing. Whenever it goes on an outing it attracts a lot of attention from other guitarists. I've had quite a few offers for it, but this is the only guitar I own that I'd never sell.

    I like that design! Sounds like you've found yourself a keeper. :)

    I don't think I've seen a GS SG on here before, and I've never actually seen one in a store - I'm not even sure if they're still making them. I bought my first GS this year, a GS1000, and I've been really impressed by the quality. Good to see someone's enjoying their SGs too.

    Gordon Smith do a SG2 as a stock item still. Looks like the body shape is slightly different to mine. I've also had a Gordon Smith Gypsy 2 back in the late 80s. A very nice guitar, wish I still owned it. Don't think they make those any more. GS1000s look lovely...enjoy
