    So this went on sale as the last of the 2018 models in Australia, got it straight from the warehouse here.

    I have now ended up with 4 of the 2018 model SG's. The Junior, Cherry and Ebony Standards and the Natural Special.

    It just plays so nicely. Absolutely love the 70's vibe too. First guitar I have owned with mini humbuckers and really like them.

    Another 2018 owner here, I have the same cherry standard as yours and I fall more in love with it every day!

    What's the guitar in the middle with three P90s? And it has 25 frets?

    That would be a 2018 Gary Clark Jr Signature SG in Vintage Cherry. It has 24 frets :smile:

    Gary Clarke Jr Signature? Must be cool blues machine! I like that guy!! So many years he played Epiphones on stage. He had 2008 (I guess) Gibson 61 R and finally, Gibson realized him!

    Another 2018 Special owner reporting in. Yours is a beauty. I also have come to really appreciate the mini humbuckers. I thought I might swap one or both for P90 but I’m keeping them.

    For my own part, mine is also natural but nowhere near as nice looking as yours. It’s much darker, almost looks like walnut and the grain is very tight and boring. Sounds killer though. Enjoy yours!

    congratulations... that natural special is extra lovely.
    And I'm a fan of Gibson's new design mini hums... there's a couple
    of threads here on these pickups and guitars. I've had a lot to
    say in there, so I won't repeat myself (much).

    Just to say congratulations on making a fine choice of guitar.
