I like it for the most part. I don't use the Bigsby much, but if I did, I know I would have tuning issues for sure. Looks cool, thothoughts on the bridge?
The CME SG Exclusives in Coral and Blue Frost have also been very tempting.I've had mixed results when buying SGs. I've bought 3 and had to send 2 of them back. One was an obviously returned guitar, complete with a drumstick-shaped dent on the upper horn. The dent wasn't Gibson's fault, but the terrible orange peeled finish was. Then they sent me a guitar with the neck angle so far off that I couldn't lower the bridge enough to make it playable.
The keeper was this shell pink CME exclusive; one of the most perfect guitars I have ever owned.
Too cool. I really dig the '62 RI, I own one from 1986 and from what I understand the '87 was a great year for those as well. From what I've read they started transitioning towards the '61 RI specs around '88, so you've got yourself a very special and under-rated guitar there. Congrats!
Too cool, and yes, I meant Shaws, which I really like as well. Glad you've decided to keep the '61....the only thing better than an SG is two SGs. Now you got to find one with p-90s. Cheers.
