I love how my SG starts to fade to brownish shades.
I live in Crete, where sun is shinning almost all year long.
The guitar lives on a stand with minimal direct contact with the sun
but the room is sunny.
put that guard back on for sure!.. gives us the real color for those who want to purchase this guitar in 75 years at auction and do a forensic exam... Like looking under the pups for color.. lol.. love it..
