    Very surprised at the feel of the neck. Not too slim like many 61's I've played - this on has shoulders on the profile so it doesn't feel too small at all. Like a "D" shape.
    It has incredible ring and sustain especially on higher notes.

    Would have loved to keep the new Standard but I needed to sell to buy the 61'.

    Yeah it's a VOS. But I got a good deal on it but it was still up there so I had to sell the Standard to buy it.
    Really glad I did - it is an exceptional guitar.

    That's my favorite finish on an SG or LP.

    That's pretty sweet, AC. It reminds me of the one true jewel in my collection, the 1993 Korina I stumbled across in 1994.

    Those are the ones man, truly. The early 2000’s 61’s are just the best in my opinion, followed closely by 2013’s. If you are into those traditional carves, true ABR-1 and superb fit and finish. I don’t know why those years got the extra attention, but I have yet to stumble across a one from the 1999- 2003 era that were anything less than exceptional. If I was looking for the best players guitar this is exactly what I would buy.

    Gibson had no idea how good of a job they did in these years.

    I would have kept this beauty forever, this is by far the most beautiful SG
    I wish Gibson had a full year run of these again, with the baked maple or ebony fretboard
