  1. Plays and sounds great. The only negative is Gibson put too thick a lacquer on it, imho.
  2. Well, after a long wait (2 months) for the special, I cancelled my order. US$1500 who would pay that for a special? Instead, I paid US$1800 for one of these: (I'll post a pic or two over the next couple of days).

  4. I'm no expert, but if it works for you then it works for you. A friend gave me his LP to look at once because he couldn't get it to play; long story short, the bridge had bent in the middle due to the 10s pressing down hard on the back of the bridge - there was no way to set this guitar up properly without replacing the curved bridge with a new one. I always take care not to have the strings touching the back of the bridge - not saying it's right or wrong, just saying that I've seen a bridge bent as a result of it (the owner reckoned he'd had the guitar in storage for a few years with thos
  5. Those Maton guitars look lovely, but at the price they should. The cases look pretty neat too.
  6. Yeah, I will do, but I haven't got a delivery date yet. Also, I reckon that the special and junior would look great together, but they'll be over 5,000 miles apart, sadly as I'm working over in Asia currently. Yeah, I agree - it looks lovely. Yeah the SG juniors are great; I keep saying it, but folks who haven't played one really need to try them out - if I could only have 1 guitar, It'd be the SG junior; it's so versatile and punchy with a lovely bite to it.
  7. Very nice; I'd like one too. Yes, please. Me too although I do want to. Yeah, that'd be very nice. I've one of these as well; 'better amps' have come and gone, but the Yam10 is so convenient that it's a keeper.
  8. They look lovely; I'd love a 339, especially the blue one.
  9. That's a very impressive beast of a guitar, congratulations - I hope you enjoy it.
  10. While these are both very good guitars, they are very different: Obvious differences are: nitro finish / satin finish mahogany neck / maple neck P90s / mini-buckers case / gigbag binding / no binding dots / block inlays rolled fret edges / no rolled fret edges A grade woods (whatever that means...) / matched pieces - I would say the 'A grade woods' on my 2018 jnr are truly beautiful compared to say the 'matched pieces' of my SG faded. & a few other differences such as the bridge/tailpiece. The nitro finish, rolled edges, case, binding and wood selection all c
  11. Some thoughts on the bridge of this special - it works well on the 2018 jnr, and that isn't even compensated. When I bought the 2018 jnr, I was planning to buy a mojoaxe compensated bridge to put on it, but held off for a couple of months to get used to the guitar; now, I won't be changing the bridge because it works fine for me. I would say that theoretically the intonation is gonna be way off kilter at points on the neck, but when I play the intonation's fine for me. I actually prefer the wraparound tailpiece all in one over the std set up of bridge and tailpiece now, but agree that you
  12. I was looking at old prices, out of interest, and a 1959 LP special cost $179 without a case or $193 with a basic case and $222 with a nice case. I couldn't find a 1963 pricelist with the SG special, but let's say it'd be similar to the 1959 LP special prices(?). http://vintage.catalogs.free.fr/Gibson59.pdf Those prices, today (if we take the above as 1963 prices, when the SG special was around, rather than 1959), equate to $1450, $1560 and $1800. (I used this website: https://www.saving.org/inflation/inflation.php?amount=182&year=1959) I know it's no kind of direct comparison be
  13. The 2018 SG/LP jnrs and DC special are already hard to find in many places - I suspect they won't be blown out at low cost anywhere (could be wrong?). This 2019 special will be equally as popular, sell out quickly and not drop in price much, if at all, over time, imho. Gibson rarely make guitars to this spec; Pelham Blue specials are like gold dust on ebay/reverb - similar specs come out sometimes, like the 2011 60s and the 2016 std, but this special is, as Pip has said, a great spec that's very close to a CS historic guitar (like the LP jnr 1957). The only thing that I'd maybe change are
