    This week just keeps getting better...had this beauty show up a couple of hours ago, and my goodness it doesn't disappoint! I ordered the titanium blocks from Mojo Axe and will get those installed right away, but good grief that sideways tail piece looks AWESOME. My personal favorite looking model. I have to say also, normally I hate factory setups, but this one is pretty nice. Plays great.

    They're definitely not from the same batch. Even the cases are slightly different. The sideways model has the case on the right, and it's the newer guitar.

    Congrats again....Lookin Good, sounding even better I bet !
    Mojoaxe was good choice too and was where I was going to block the tremolo but I sent 'em both back. At least it seems GIBSON has upped their game w/good set-up's from factory. Curly is doing something right ?

    But then, just as I am singing their praises:the new SG 'Modern' Standards are coming with a soft shell case that MIGHT protect it ? "Oh dont worry"...Crack !

    Gibson thinks they are slick? SG Standards come w/SSC's at $1499+Tax,but a player has to go + $200+Tax for the HSCase. SO the SG's are really the same price as the Flying V's and Explorer's and while those have no Box/Trap In-Lays they do have BB2 & BB3 P-up's and the SG Standard Modern gets the 490's...they are pretty close to being equals but I think the BB's are just slightly better. You ?
