i have the 61 3 pick up epi..(2006)
solid construction and resonates (also dry) quite well.

build quality is good with minor flaws.

i did some upgrades on mine.. but necessarily the nut
( 2006 they didnt use the graph tech nuts, might be obsolete by now)
and changed the bridge pick up to a di marzio.

its a keeper.

I remember playing one in a store and the neck was on the thin side of the Slim Taper D.

Its not that mutch i can find eiter on this forum or other pluss YouTube.and its just basic stuff that they are great and that the pickguard is correct.i woued like to hear from someone that has playing the guitar fore some time and if posseble have the standard 61/60s with vibrola and can tell me if the neck profile is the same etc.i know there its a diffrence In finish.the 61 lp sg got the same like the 59 lp and the vibrola got standard gloss.i woued also like to know from owners of the 61 lp sg if the back treble bevel on the back is not finish like on the guitarista review or if some got full bevels etc.

That is historically accurate. Vintage SGs never had a bevel on the rear treble cutaway. Whoever criticized that had no idea what they were talking about. That's one of my biggest pet peeves, when people criticize something out of ignorance.

Here's a real 1960s Gibson SG:
