    Got tired of dealing with the neck dive on the 2016 Special HP :(. It was under 45 day trial so I sent it packing. Decided to go with the one I had always wanted. 2018 Standard in Autumn Shade. :D

    Nice! I have the same one. Next step, get those circuit boards out of there!

    Maybe I am missing something here, but if your not into that why don’t you just purchase a different guitar? There is no shortage of beautiful SG’s that come without a circuit board. Why rip one out?

    Love that color! I wasn't crazy about some of the recent changes by Gibson, but I am very glad they finally started offering more colors for the SG.

    And I agree about the circuit board, there's nothing wrong with them. Only cork sniffers with Historics will claim they are inferior in any way, and I say that being the proud owner of a Historic SG! A lot of things when it comes to Gibson are like with Harley Davidson; the "faithful" reject change even when it's actual progress and there's no reason to. For example, the tuners that come on Historics are 12:1 ratio, fucking absurdly crude for a new guitar in 2018. Hell, that was crude in the '80s.

    Great color. I love the SG bursts. I have a 2014 in Fireburst and a 2017 Cherryburst.
