Hey all! I'm not new to forums in general, but brand-new here. I just purchased a 2012 SG standard and am really digging it. I had owned a couple of other ones in my distant past, along with many other Gibsons over the years, but this is the first one that was exactly what I wanted... it's in the "vintage cherry" finish, which is darker than the "heritage cherry". It came with zebra Burstbuckers, but I've never really been into the zebra style and really like the metal-covered PAF-style look anyway, so I swapped them out for a 57 Classic/57Classic+ set, since I had them in one of my Les Pauls before and liked them. I always like to be on forums that deal with things I own, so coming here seemed like the obvious choice one I had the new SG. I'm a regular over at the Marshall Forums, since I'm an old-school Marshall guy as well (I'll be 49 soon). Anyway, I look forward to joining in the conversations relating to one of my new favorite guitars (this thing rocks).
