    Hello! Just received my Brian SG Jr. today, so I figured I'd post a few pictures!

    It's a great feelin' guitar, and it's my first foray into the SG and the P-90 pickup worlds. I haven't gotten a ton of time with it just yet, but I've heard only great things about P-90 pickups.

    I also posted a close-up picture of the finish since some of the pictures out there don't really do it justice. Even the Sweetwater photos made it look a little more solid white than the pictures I'm posting here. The hair-like lines in the White Fox finish look fantastic, and there's a slight pearly, iridescent look as well that doesn't really show up in the photos.

    The uniqueness of it is what got me interested in it. I had never heard of Brian Ray ‘til this guitar caught my eye. I’ve wanted to try an SG for a long time too, so it’s an interesting first for me.

    That is a great looking SG! HNGD!

    I confess that I had to look up who Brian Ray is. Now I know.

    Great looker, almost TV white.
