its been about 8 years or so since I’ve owned an SG. The GAS bug bit pretty hard and despite steroids and naproxen I still got the fever. So after scouring ebay and reverb and throwing out tons of lowball offers, I came upon this: a 2017 SG Standard advertised as used but like new condition. The pros: 57 classics (I didn’t want the 490/498 set), small pickguard The cons: more money than I was hoping to spend, wasn’t heritage cherry (my favorite finish) We haggled a bit and settled on a price. The guitar was lost by ups for 2 days which was awesome (*rolls eyes*) but it finally showed up. Luckily it is still as immaculate as the seller originally claimed. The setup was super low the way I like it. And I was surprised I didn’t need to adjust the neck give the 7 days in UPSs possession. And the color? It’s better than I thought. I really like the cherry burst. I was afraid it was gonna be too black but it’s very well done.
