    Hello All,
    Just received from Birch the #2 of 2 pre production limited edition SGs. This was a demonstrator for shows and the shop. Only making 10 world wide when they finally get into production. If you look on the Birch face book page you an see both of them. Mine has the nickel surround screws and bone nut. Only differences I could see. Tell me what you peeps think. I think its unreal. Wide neck and the profile of like my 67 Stratocaster. I assume Tony liked that profile. It has the 22k bridge and 16k pickups. Ive already played this with my rangemaster and the Laney supergroups I have and if my neighbors just tolerated me before, they really hate me now. This is a real ass kicker set up. I will try to load some pics of the guitar johnbirchpreprod7.JPG johnbirchpreprod6.JPG johnbirchpreprod4.JPG johnbirchpreprod3.JPG johnbirch preprod2.JPG

    It's a remake of the original JB bridges from the '70s.

    Nope. Not yet anyway. It is the nicest feeling guitar, super easy to play. Really impressive. If it was a total piece of ****, I would say it. I have never owned anything quite this nice. I wish you guys could play it, see for yourselves.

    if anyone is interested I will post better photos. I will tear into it later and share what exactly the Birch limited edition SG special really is all about. I am indulging myself and getting pleasure delicately showing it who's boss around here.:rofl:

    Tony Iommi’s 1962 Gibson SG Jr. that was customized by John Birch. This was a gift from Leslie West to Tony in the early 1970’s. It was originally cherry red, right handed and a SG Jr. It was customized by John Diggins (Jaydee) who was at that time with John Birch.

    Congratulations in having the honor of preserving such a beautiful guitar. Wow. You must be very proud of that axe. Very impressive. I notice the arrangement of the pickups vs the 65 SG special Tony played. Really outstanding. :h5:
