    OK full disclosure I have been married a long time now. Two daughters and the same wife and a female german shepherd even. So ... having a pair ... well ... I dunno that's kind of shaky.

    The pair may not be a pair exactly. If you even have one after a lot of years of staying married well that's pretty dang good right?

    But for guitars the same applies and let's see what you have for two eh? ( Canadian eh I am reading Shakey the Neil Young biography and thinking about black ish guitars ).

    So here we go. On the right side the 2018 SG HP in cobalt fade it is dark very dark. Only under a lot of light does it show off the dark blue fade. On the left the 2017 LP HP Studio yes it is black/ebony but reflects a lot of other background colors.

    So anyway ha ha the SG have a pair of something challenge is on! Lets go!
