I’m eagerly awaiting an SG, I’ve wanted one for ages and bought and received a black sg standard a few weeks ago and it showed up broken. I’ve bought another one and it should show up on Thursday.

yours looks great, pickup covers and big pickguard look best IMO

They're fun guitars once you get used to the slightly different neck displacement. With a thin neck, wide-open access, and the thin, light body you can really push them around as you play.

I like those when set up with @T-Rey 's new covers, but I also like the early small pickguard with P90's and a wraparound look. It revels in its "Plain Jane" appearance like the proverbial girl next door:

Looks great. I prefer covered HBs on Gibsons and uncovered on Fenders. (?)

I love Philadelphia Luthier, but I'm concerned because their supply lines seem to be even more disrupted than some others. A fair amount of items I've been looking for are out of stock. I signed up for email alerts when they get them in, but I've never received a single notification and when I go to the site to double-check, sure enough, still out of stock.

I love my SG. And I prefer the look of covered pickups to the uncovered ones myself. I used to have a Les Paul Studio Deluxe, and while it was a perfectly nice guitar, I never could bond with it. Mostly because of the aesthetic. I didn’t like the look of the zebra pickups and the lack of binding. Which, yeah, kinda shallow of me, I know.

But SGs are great guitars, and mine is my second favorite guitar. I love the light weight, and the upper fret access. And the neck dive the models sometimes suffer from is easily remedied by using a wider strap with a suede or leather back.

They both look great, I was hoping to find a black sg standard with p90s or a black classic (dots, binding and p90s I believe) but I get the feeling they are rare as rocking horse poo.

this is the one I’m I’m eagerly waiting for

I can't argue that. I was originally going to order chrome plated but one of the two sizes I need was out of stock. I ordered the nickel plated instead because they were in stock but I do like the way they look after receiving and having them installed. Their customer service representatives are very knowledgeable and quick to respond if you have questions about anything though. Wasn't sure about what sizes I needed and emailed them to see and they responded very quickly and were spot on with the sizes.
