    Spotted this 170 miles away, just got back. It's a very-near perfect 2000 Special.

    The blowback should be interesting, though I'm offing the other two SGs now; transfusions appreciated.

    Better than a leg lamp. Congrats, but watch out for accidents.

    Special used to mean 2 P90’s. I guess those are called Classic now. HNGD. White SG’s are my favorite.

    Thanks, it's starting to check a little, too.

    Thanks, yeah, the serial starts 03560 - dame near a 2001.
    And my meager research leaves me with that question, too; I thought they discontinued this in '99 or something...

    I hear you.
    I salved the P-90 thirst with a Tribute LP (which I love except for the skinny neck).
    This thing popped up with no notice and (Angus notwithstanding) I wanted my SG to be white/ebony. Parting company with two humbucker-loaded SGs to get this one is easier than I thought... I don't know what to say about the chainsaw case, though.

    Do you rermember this one (1997) ? I was available with a red nitro finish too.

    Congrats! Love my 2001. Does it have a fat neck?

    Thanks, but I screwed up: strung it before I measured it... Super comfortable.
    .897" at the first fret, but my 1-inch mic is too narrow by at least an eighth to measure the 12th.
