    I was looking for a '61 RI SG and I bought this SG Std. Very nice and very resonant guitar, it sounds fantastic :cheers2:
    Yes it is a 2015.

    Is that a trans black finish? Looks really nice. That's the finish I wanted, but I like the batwing pickguard and didn't find one in that color. So I bought a new cherry a few months back. I love mine too.

    Yes, the finish is called trans black.

    I will upgrade the bridge, hate the big Nashville .

    Not a huge fan of the headstock decal, but I love the color on that model. How's the neck on it? I heard the 2015s had a totally new neck profile going on for them.

    Neck profile is like a 60's slim taper and the fretboard is wider at the nut side. Very comfortable and easy profile.
