I've always spoken the truth, which sometimes people don't like. No one should allow anything I say to influence whether or not they like their guitar. If someone said they think deep bevels are ugly, it would not affect ONE BIT how much I like my guitar pictured above. This is a forum, & unless I'm mistaken, a forum is a place to opine & pontificate on various subjects, whether negative or positive. I understand what you mean about NGD vs. opinions on new SGs, but I guarantee nothing I have said will change the OP's mind about his guitar. Didn't mean to be insulting; just giving my opinion in my original post, half of which was because of my wiseass, NYC attitude. Don't let anything I post ruin your day.
