Thanks, It looks like a lifelong companion for sureI threw in the towel months ago on this model, I already have three SG’s including a ‘61 from 2020 which is an excellent specimen. This is a guitar I really didn’t need, but I was seduced by the color. Glad you got a winner, hope you enjoy it for many years to come!
I know what you mean about the Aged Cherry finish...I got 2 guitars with it a 2018 EXPLORER w/Gold Hardware and a 2019 SG Original and both are ROCKIN, especially the SG w/Chrome Maestro and Hardware ...it really is BAD-A$$ colour and can look ebony in the right light......!I ordered a brand new Exclusive Aged Cherry Standard with gold hardware and the nut slot under the .046 string was barely there. The string was about .08" above the first fret and barely in a slot. It was glaringly obvious as soon as I took the guitar out of the case. So, I exchanged it immediately. I got the replacement today and it had gouges inside the lower horn. Looked like a bad sanding or polishing accident. So it's going back tomorrow. The guitar lists at $2099. The Aged Cherry looks amazing with the gold hardware so I'm exchanging again. And I really loved the necks on both guitars. I thought Gibson was all about quality lately? This is my 1st Gibson purchase in about 10 years. I won't accept a $2000 guitar with defects without a huge discount and the staff at this online dealership isn't offering me that. They gave me a $20 set of strings with my 1st exchange. I'm wondering if I should try Gibson direct? Any opinions or advice is welcomed.
