    Fugly batwing lover here.

    I have the 2011 exclusive one Sam Ash ran (along with Bullion Gold). I searched for one for nearly two years because it had a batwing, snot tuners, and decently thick neck profile. This AMS one seems to have everything going for it except for those Grover tuners. My 2011 has a 498T but I like the 490T as well.

    OP should buy.

    Pelham Blue SGs are just gorgeous! I understand your drooling. I have the 2019 Exclusive Run SG Standard which has the specs of the normal 2018 Standards. I did not plan to buy an SG Standard but could not resist after giving it a try in a store.

    Did you get that from Sam Ash first hand? If so, how much did these things run when they were new? I want to know the premium I paid when I got mine since they are hard to find.

    I want one. I could care less about pick guard shape, but I have wanted this color for a while now.

    You still have the bridge designed for a wound G. How does that feel for intonation? I think I might be tempted to replace the bridge - keeping the old one in the case, of course.

    You got it soo bad one might even venture to say, 'you've go the Pelham Blues'!
    But have no fear my friend for there certainly is a cure. Oh sure it'll cost ya but, there is definitely a cure!
