I was just about to answer Caucasian.
The guitar is Faded Pelham Blue.
Looks kinda grey in the photo .
That's why they call it Faded
I have a 2012 . No issues there.
Yeah yeah I deserved that one
When I first got my LP, it was a tuning nightmare but I'd equate that to sitting for so long, untouched before I bought it. After I set it up, it was pretty nice but the cut was a little off so I swapped out the nut with bone.
I'm pretty confident in my setup skills so I think I just had a bad nut on my previous SG.
With quality...I don't necessarily mean a "bad" guitar as much as I mean attention to detail or care going into the build. Things like too much finish on the serial # where it's almost impossible to read, fret nibs, minor faults in the fret board binding etc. Things like that while not necessarily deal-breakers but they're definitely things that make you say "come on man".
I was just wondering if there are certain years better than others. Gibson was pushing out a lot of crap from 2010-2015 and their QC standards were debatable. Wanted to see if there was a "sweet spot" for SG's but it seems like they just conform to the overall quality of Gibson for the timeframe. I know with certain models...can't remember which, "2006 is a good year" is kinda what I'm looking for. My SG was a 2011 and I think the nut was cut by a blind dog.
Everything I've heard, Gibson has really upped their QC standards within the last year or two.
I have serious GAS for one of those 61's.
It’s really a great guitar. It’s beautiful and it plays really well. I find myself reaching for it more often than any of my other guitars.
Go with new Epiphones, trust me.
Doesn't everything in Sweden?
