Very good video, just watched it here at work before I start work.

What I find interesting though is how he mentioned there are no seconds that come out of the factory.
Awhile back I was interested in maybe picking up the new Midtown, but I read reviews of it, and a few said they had some quality control issues such as the volume/tone knobs being put on crooked, paint not lining up.
Would this be considered a second, or more of a lack of quality control?

I will say my 2012 SG '61 Reissue was flawless when I got it.
It just needed a proper setup.

Guitar Center wanted to sell me one off of their wall that had been played with quite a bit, and I said no, I want a brand new one shipped from the factory to the store, then I will come in and pick it up.

I thought the Midtown's came with Richlite boards. How come this has a rosewood board?

Midtown Customs came with Richlite (one of the things that put me off).

The new P90 ones (thankfully) have Rosewood and I will have to get one.. I just think for the price they are the most amazing deal.

The new Standard P-90 had rosewood.

The Standard w/Bigsby was mixed. Some made it out with rosewood then we switched to Richlite.

The P90 is the cheapest too.
I can't see why the Classic Custom's aren't Richlite. That baked maple puts me off. It looks like a Chinese copy.
