Just looking for info from any owners of this guitar. A friend of a friend has one for sale I'll be checking soon. Just wondering if these are one piece bodies, are wired traditionally with a harness or are they circuit board? What's the neck like? Just overall thoughts any of you have. Thanks.

The circuit board is a relatively new thing, there's no way you'll find one on a 2001 guitar. No idea on the neck profile and body parts, though.

I have the 2001 and it is old school wired...great guitar well worth the coin...mine is a one piece but that's not to say some may be 2 piece...but nothing wrong with that.

Thanks for the info guys. The one I was looking at got sold, so I guess I'll keep looking.

I had one of the non limited edition ones.

I wasn't that keen on it, chunky neck, muffled output, poor intonation and the
brown matt finish wasn't even near the cherry red finish that was on the SGs that Townshend used
1968-1971 . I got shot of it pretty quickly.
I had to wait for the Tribute Series to get a decent p90 Live At Leeds SG sound.
