I sold my MetroPlex head and the money is burning a hole in my pocket. I need/want another guitar.

I want one with P90s. I have two Tele style guitars so I don't want another. I have a Gibson LP and a Mollenhauer LP style guitar so I don't want another LP. The top end of my budget is $2000 max. That's taxes and shipping... everything. I'm not a brand name worshipper so if it's cool, I may buy it.

It can't come from China or Indonesia. South Korea is okay but Japan is better and Europe is better and USA is best.

I don't have an SG.

I like this one on Reverb and it's what I'm going with unless you guys talk me into something better.

I'm making a killer Jr for @mudface right now. it's in the wet-sand and buffing stage.

It's TV black with pearl grain filler that we formulated ourselves, A DSG exclusive.

It's called "Midnight pearl". Depending on the light, it turns from blue to grey to pink to white.. All that over a basic black lacquer, then clear-coated over to a glass-like finish.

I've been wanting a Larrivee RS-4 with P90's for a while now, but that SG Supreme you linked to is a beauty. I'd be happy with either of them, but I'd probably give a slight nod to the RS-4, simply because I'm partial to carve tops. I played an RS-4 and really liked it, but it had humbuckers (they also came with P90's) and I haven't had a chance to play one with P90's. I saw one on Craigslist a while back, but somebody beat me to it. Good luck.

Dave,,,Can this be done..?
@LtDave32 can build anything. This would be built by the hands of one guy. Lots of time in these Customs.... Here’s a peek at the DC Junior Dave is building for me... the finish shown here is nowhere near complete as this was in its early stages.... but you can get the idea.
