    Looking for a CS SG in Pelham Blue.

    Preferably with humbuckers, not P90s.

    Why does it need to be Custom Shop?
    Check Reverb listings.

    Ted, The Pelham blue finish is pretty but I get tired quickly...

    I prefer Ebony, Cream, Oxblood plain finishes.

    I’ve been gassing for Pelham blue. Reverb has a few of them...two that are a bit overpriced and one that is PERFECT but the seller won’t ship...

    $3k seems reasonable to me for this (used of course). What do you guys think?

    I've never understood why a Custom Shop SG even exists.
    $3000-4000 for an SG is ridiculous IMO.
    It's a simple guitar to build compared to an LP.

    Certain finish colors and options that are only available as Custom Shop models can easily be produced on the regular production line. They won't do it, hoping people will spend more money on the CS model.

    Look for the Jeff Tweedy SG's. They're beautiful Pelham Blue guitar's.

    The Blue Mist finish on those is quite stunning...I didn’t realize they even existed until I saw Pat Smear playing one.

    Well, I got a killer deal on a brand new CS ‘61 Reissue SG. I called a dealer about it and in the process, they found a tiny blemish on the back and knocked $700 off the price. Couldn’t pass it up!

    Will post some photos when it arrives.

    Thanks to all for your suggestions.
