I’m sure that that pickguard let’s them cut cost by having all pickguard mounted components, but that shape is not doing it for me, personally. Color me curious about the more affordable Explorer and Flying V though!

looks like they're coming down with a mild case of the PRS.

Yea, I have pro pics from Sweetwater and scored one with a miniscule, and I do mean "if I can't buff it out, take away my polishing cloth" scratch on the back of the headstock.

On day one of release, I'll take a hundred bucks off for that.

Great deal. In two or three playing sessions you'll probably add bigger dings than the one that gave you a $100.00 discount.

This one isn't even a DING.

It's a scratch from boxing or unboxing it looks like.

And a little nitro polish and boom, should go right away.

Shit, the 2019 Gibson SG Tribute w/Walnut finish is also nice:

Image

I'm hoping that we can see a sale on the 2018 Autumn SG Standard at some point in the near future:

Image

I see they are down to $1,499.99 but I think we can do better than that :cool:
