    The SG I recently purchased came with a SKB hardshell case, which is great except that the handle is broken and comes off. Is it possible to purchase the handle only, rather than another case? Thanks!

    Waiting on NGD - 2009 SG Classic

    Last night I sold the SG Standard I had in favor of a 2009 SG Classic in Heritage Cherry. I had been checking this line out and love that it has slight more bling than the SG Special Faded, and less than the Standard.
