    Thanks, I bought the amp this summer, it's a 2011 and is MINT, I got a pretty good deal on it I think. It's definitely a one trick pony but it's a GOOD trick. Amp on 12, guitar on about 8, it clips and sags and snarls just right. Having said that, I'm probably gonna look for a bigger reissue tweed (or a Princeton Reverb) in 2017 to add a little versatility.

    I played a couple of 2017 sg standards today at my local shop, Dietz Music, Omaha. They had a cherry burst and an ebony. One was a bit lighter than the other. I personally liked the 60 style necks on them, they were both easy playing, fast, light little guitars.
    I thought the white binding looked great, particularly on the black guitar. I didn't like the knobs very much, but...whatever.
    I think they are worth checking out, they have a much different feel than the 2016s do, and I must admit that I regretted not taking one home.

    I was like you, a little on the fence until I saw the Pelham Blue, then it was all over. Knobs are $15 ;-)

    The Gibson pointers aren't cheap but they aren't essential....I guess I threw about $70 on a few parts to make it a little more 60s looking. I had some new smaller Gibson strap pins that I added too, I don't like those huge ones that it came with. Next up, a GOOD leather strap worthy of a $1300 guitar.

    Been playing mine without the pickguard and backplate because I sent them to Dan at MojoAxe to cut me a new wide bevel pickguard and cavity cover. I love that vintage look. and I couldn't get past the weird pigskin grain pattern on the cavity voer, but I suppose that's just me. In a week or so I should be rocking like it's (sort of) 1965, haha.

    It's almost worth buying one just to see that cool packaging. Very nice.
