    As long as she buries you with that guitar, it's all worth it.

    Most likely she will sell it way to cheap because I'm not telling her how much I'm paying.... If anyone here buys it from her I'm coming back to haunt you!

    Sure, fine, but you're playing rhythm!

    If that was a solid color of the inside natural I might have had to rob a bank!

    Gibson does stuff like this almost every year. My LP was one of those type of deals. But it's possibly getting traded for a SG Standard next week. I miss my SG :(

    I know that feeling all too well. My main guitar was a '96 SG Standard for about 10 years, sold it a little over 10 years ago now, and haven't really bonded with a guitar since lol.... I truly can't wait to get my hands on one of these new ones

    I have been back & forth but I think this SG won't be going anywhere again. Just made the deal for an ebony 2016 Standard :)

    I'm absolutely stoked on the 2017 Standard, especially that cherry burst. I had a '61 reissue that I regrettably sold and I absolutely loved the 24 frets, slim tapered neck, and the 57 / 57+ pups. I was gonna pick up a used standard from Reverb but I just happened to check AM and came across the 2017 standard equipped with what I loved about the reissue. If only it had the large headstock haha. The chrome tuners need to go but picking up the Cherry Burst :fingersx:

    You do know the 2017 is only 22 frets, right?

    IMG_0920.JPG Got mine last Wednesday and love it! First SG in fifteen years. Added Gibson reflector knobs and pointers, black poker chip and white switch. A little more 1965, a little less 2017. Probably a wide bevel pickguard next.

    I've always hated how they've done those truss rod covers. I want one that just says "custom" on it, as I've modded my SG quite a bit from stock.
