    I wonder what rare custom colour SGs they had at the Songbirds exhibition. It appears that now that the exhibition is no more, some of the guitars there are offered for sale through Well-Strung guitars.

    Here's a few SGs currently for sale there...

    The Pelham is gorgeous. Too bad it’s a 66 - I have trouble with the thinner nut width.

    ...and the black custom is just amazing.

    That doesn't look to have even originated as a Gibson. Pretty darn cool though.

    Mmm me too. Beautiful in blue.

    I like SG's in silver too, like the custom colour '64 Reissues.
