    I don' t like the design of the pickguard, and it is very strange on this 2018 model, here is my favorite RI, 2008 or something like that :

    To each his/her own! That's a nice looking SG Jr., but...for me, it doesn't have the correct bevels and horn tapering,
    that the original ones, and the 2018 does. But, then, a lot of folks out there, don't care about that! I have no problem
    with the current "very strange" pickguard, as it's accurate, to the original '61! But again, whatever floats your boat! [biggrin]

    That's awesome. I hope you enjoy it! Can't wait to see the pictures. Also curios to see what kind of case they come in too and if it has the scroll logo on it like the headstock.



    Thanks, Beerad12...They're using the regular "brown" case, pink interior, and gold standard Gibson Logo.

    Well, friends...I bit the bullet! Bought the SG Jr., mentioned above, today. Should be here next Tuesday, or Wednesday!
    Sweetwater had several in stock, and I picked the one that was closest to the original version, I learned on. They sold
    all they had, in less than 48 hours. My rep told me they were "Flying off the shelves!" So, I guess I'm fortunate to have
    clicked "add to cart," when I did? LOL :D

    I feel like I'm come full circle, now...back to the identical model of guitar I started on, 55 years ago! Seems like yesterday,
    at times. [tongue] [scared] [biggrin]

    Pictures to follow, when it arrives!

    Cheers,

    BUT does it have correct enough bevelling and tapering to get by your OCD?

    :P

    :)


    LOL :D Well, time will tell, but it sure looks to have the early '60's beveling and horn tapering,
    as well as the '61 slope on the back. So, I'm "hopeful/cautiously optimistic. I'll know more, after
    they get some in stock, and post some more detailed photos. OR, if I manage to find one, in a
    more local (Wichita) store?

    Would be great, though! The Jr. and (P-90) Special (w/bound fingerboard), are the other SG's I've wanted
    to get, since I got back "into" them. I was told, that this particular SG Jr. has been available, for some time,
    in Japan! WHY Gibson didn't release it, HERE, before now, is just one of their (many) marketing "quirks,"
    I guess??? :P

    Cheers,
