    Gibson Custom Shop made a short run for Chicago Music Exchange, a '64 Ri without Vibrola :facepalm:
    Beautiful but what about the neck profile?

    Love the color, that’s beautiful. Not quite walnut, not quite cherry. Very appealing. Personally, if I were to spend the dollars on the 64 Custom Shop I would go for the vibrola. But I must admit, this is a unique piece

    Also love the nylon saddles and yellowed MOP in the headstock. This should just be standard on SG’s in my opinion

    This guitar looks like those CME versions. I had the flash on when I took that picture above.

    The neck profile is my favorite feature on this guitar. It's like a R0/1960 LP at the nut, but has more gradual girth from the 12th fret upwards. Very unique to the '64 (and '65 I believe). Comfortable for chords but great for bends up the neck, as you can really get some nice leverage off that thickness.

    It pains me to have to advertise this. I need the money for another amp. :sadwave:
