My first gibson, a SG special in Pelham blue.
It’s an amazing player, love the p90s.
Very nice looking SG. HNGD!
Very nice; congrats!!!
As an FYI - if anyone wants an SG Special in the Pellham Blue (or the burgundy metallic) grab one while you can; those colors have been discontinued by Gibson and I think the last batches have shipped (or will ship soon). Gibson replaced those colors with trans red (the traditional SG color) and black a month or two ago.
Very cool! That's a great color. I had a SG Special Faded for several years. I wish I still had it. Mine had no neck binding though. You're gonna love it! P90s work great for rolling your volume off a little to like 6, then dial in your amp to how you like it. Then when it's solo time, crank the volume on your guitar! Hell yeah!
Man those play so freaking awesome! I thought the wrap tail would make palm mutes kinda weird but it was just the opposite! The pickups handle high surprisingly well…I ended up using mine for mostly Motley Crue and similar stuff.
I was running it thru a fuzz and univibe at like 5 or 6 on the volume knob and reached tone utopia.
That's a beautiful guitar, I like that color! Congratulations.
Gibson P90s are my favorite pickup, especially with a wrap tail bridge. They can sing, scream, bark, and bite!
And don’t get me started on Pelham Blue!
Nice. '62 style neck?
I'd suggest dropping that front pickup a little and playing with the pickup screws to balance things out, but give it a whirl.
Believe it or not, this is actually post adjustment. Bridge pickup just happens to be pretty quiet. Also forgot to mention in OP but this is a gibson demo shop guitar so it gets a custom level setup before leaving the shop. or so they say... lol.
Not sure about the neck style. i think it's pretty wide though.
Photo of the neck joint will ID which one they modeled.
Is the neck on those thin or baseball bat?
Yeah, the usual setup for P90's is bridge very high and neck very low to balance them. If they're balanced, you're good.
As for the individual pole pieces, I don't think I've ever seen Gibson adjust them when they set up a guitar. Not sure what that means, LOL. I do it myself by ear to balane.
Very nice! Great choices all around — make, model, color
Ah, you mean individual pole pieces? I had never thought you could even do that on p90s. The more you know It’s pretty thin imo, but not uncomfortable.
Ooooohhh! That’s SMOKING!!!
Have you taken it out of the case yet?
Of course! It’s a sweet player.
Nice. My first ever Gibson was right after I started playing. A friend found a 79 LP Custom with HSC for $400 so she grabbed it for me.
Ooh! SGs are my second favorite. Actually an SG was my first electric guitar in the early 70s.
That one is beautiful!
