Better late than never! I’ve been in the process of changing around my stable. And this was one of the beauties I picked up a few weeks back. Finally got to oil the board and get the set up just right. Took some pics, and made a demo. I wasn’t planning on getting one so soon, but once i heard the pelham blue was discontinued and found this for sale at a discount I jumped on it and couldn’t be happier.

Pics and video with tones below! This is my first ever SG, and of course I got inspired to hammer out some AC/DC riffs…I know they’re not humbuckers, but these p90’s can really growl.
Decided to have a little fun with it and don the school uniform. :laugh2:

My first SG is a Sparkling Burgundy Special. They are terrific guitars.
Congrats!

My wife bought me this same guitar for Christmas.
I love mine.
Congratulations.
Wow! What a fantastic gift. Kudos to your wife. Glad to see you’re loving your SG too. I’ve seen so many people happy with this new special, they really did a great job with this one. And thanks for watching! Appreciate the kind words. Took a couple takes to get it right but i had a lot of fun making it.
Love the video! Love the color!
Thanks! :cheers2:
YOU ROCK DUDE !!!!!!!
Thanks! Appreciate the kind words.
Great video man! Well done on all accounts!
Thanks so much for checking it out! Glad you liked it. :D

Thanks! Man I was really conflicted between this and the Sparkling Burgundy, such awesome colors. It’s too bad Gibson won’t be making more.

Congratulations. Faded Pelham Blue SG Specials rock. I have a left handed version. P90s are awesome. Enjoy that prize.
Thank you! Def will. :)
I was so dissapointed when I heard the faded pelham blue was being discontinued and thought I had missed my chance to get it. Was excited to see them come back in stock.

I had ordered one and then decided against it. Luckily the guy who ordered it for me at Alto Music decided to go through with the order anyway. I was at Alto the day it arrived. I bought it on the spot. Fate…it was meant to be. Killer guitars. My brother even got the same guitar you have. A right handed version. Unlike my lefty.

Funny how things work out like that! I actually had a similar story. I was at GC asking if they’d get any more SG specials in pelham blue and they couldn’t find a single one in their system, checked nationwide and nothing…so I had them order an SG standard instead and went on my way home.

By chance, on my way back home, i drove by a smaller local shop and thought I’d pop in for fun. To my surprise, this SG special I was looking for was hanging on the wall. They had a nice holiday discount going that day too, so I also bought it on the spot and returned the GC SG standard.
