    I just bought an SG Standard about one month ago - the finish and quality is first rate but had the tuning problems with the G string for a couple of days but after that it settled in fine , maybe the strings just needed stretching .

    It became my #1 almost instantly.[/quote] My new SG did the same exact thing to me as well :)

    I too, just picked up a classic. sounded great in the store. As soon as I got it home, I restrung it, tuned it, stretched the strings, retuned it, stretched the strings again, and retuned again. Adjusted action (lowered bridge, neck was already straight). Retuned again. I always do this. I've had NO tuning instability problems with the stock parts.

    I also bought a Classic not long ago, and it is really worth it... the p90s give it a really nice tone. It is versatile, but I would say that I can get the best tone when playing something bluesy. What music do you play on it?
    As for the buyers remorse... yeah, I am to blame... canĀ“t avoid it... but after some time playing it goes away, doesn't it?
    I am not having tuning problems with my classic, mine is completely stock and it stays pretty much in tune for days or more...

    The longer I have my classic the more I like it. Great tone ,super comfortable and very versatile. I've never had any probs with it. I changed the machine heads and truss rod cover for looks,not because of any tuning problems. [​IMG]

    Your classic looks almost dark brown, is it the lighting or something? Looks awesome like that :) The Classic is hard to find where I live (Sweden) so I'm thinking of putting P90's in my 03 faded special.

    as for what to play on my SG classic... got to love classic rock thru a tube amp! Mine is very well suited for banging out classic rock stuff. Anything from old Who to AC/DC, etc. I also love to stand just a few feet away from my tube amp while playing so I can get a little controlled feedback rolling into the sustain. Love them P90s!

    I bought my Classic used (as I do all my guitars) and have never had a single issue with it. It's a shame Gibson discontinued them, I think they were the best current model for the money.

    But what's with all the buyer's remorse around here? I don't get it, I have never regretted buying ANY gear. I guess that's why I'm still single!

    Seller's Remorse, on the other hand.... :cry:

    I occasionally have buyers remorse when I buy something new but mainly because I realize how much I could have saved by buying used :cry:. +1000 on sellers remorse though. I have sold some gear that I kick myself for now.
