The neck is the same as my 2018 SG Standard. It's their "Slim Taper" profile. I find it to be quite a contrast from my LP Traditional, to say the least. Very fast and, well, "slim." The edges are rolled as with my SG Standard and the fret ends feel nonexistent.
It really was a tough call. Asked my sales rep to give me his best price on both. Surprisingly, it was just a few bucks more for the Special. Plus, it’s one of the new Original Series... not the early 2019 “Limited” that some dealers are still selling.I had both in my sights. Very beautiful. I need one of those too.
I agree. Really liked the fret work and the quality of the rosewood board. Thought it was a cut above any of the non custom shop junior/specials from the last few years.Yep I picked up the 2018 model they really have that extra refinement that you would usually expect from the custom shop models.
I really like that metallic red colour. I recently played a friend's SG Tribute and it got me looking at them (again). I already have a 60s Tribute LP GT with P90s, so I don't know if I can justify it though.Came soooo close to getting a 2019 SG JR, but my sales rep over at Sweetwater offered up a phenomenal deal on the new Original Series Special. Both appear to be absolutely killer. It was a VERY tough call, but this will be here tomorrow....
