    Harley Benton.... it will ultimately be replaced by a Gibson R4.

    2020 SG Standard. It kinda counts... I put Mojotone Quiet Coil P90s in it, but the neck angle is pretty steep and I can't get the height I need on the bridge pickup, so I'm going to swap it back to humbuckers.

    Those logos on the pick guard normally just peel off easily. In fact when I got my new Epi 339 6 or 7 years ago it was already beginning to come loose in one corner. Took off easily and no glue residue.

    Actually, in Dutch (my native language) there is only one word for both turtles and tortoises. We distinguish by adding land- or water- to the word for turtle (which would translate to something like ‘shield-toad’) to distinguish between the two. ;)

    Yes. I adore it! For the price this is a stunningly good guitar. £450 delivered. The nut needed some love and it has a couple of low frets higher up but they always do.

    P90s...1 w/1...1 w/2...2 w/3. I think that is all;).

    I have three Epiphones...very nice guitars. I have two versions of their P90 (at least visually different)...both sound great.

    It's been my contention that Squier and Epiphone, the "little brothers" of the name brands, are the guitars worth looking at these days. Their quality has improved markedly, and the price points are very attractive.

    While the "big boys" are merely re-hashing the same old stuff ("Hey look, it's our latest re-issue") and making new guitars look old ("Let's drag this behind our pickup truck and sell it as a 'relic' look") Epiphone has the Sheraton-II PRO, the Casino, the Crestwood, the Wilshire and the DC PRO. Squier has been producing the Starcaster in a variety of configurations, the Affinity and the Contemporary Active. Best yet, none of these guitars has a MSRP greater than $800.

    So, you can pay for the name on the headstock, or you can buy a quality instrument and pocket the savings.

    Those mini 'buckers sound amazing in the demo's I have seen for these. Play it in good health and ENJOY!

    Just got one. Gotta say it's a sweet guitar! Neck isn't as thick as I'd like, but I'll manage. Planning to dye the fretboard black with Fiebings.
