SG Carved Top - Autumn Burst

Recommended Posts

It's a neat novelty piece, probably plays "ok" below the 15th fret, but I'm just not interested in it. I just wait for (and hope for) a proper early-to-mid-60's reissue w/Vibrola (Historic or not, but it's GOTTA BE RIGHT). I wouldn't even mind if they offered a '61 reissue w/short Maestro and the ebony-block tailpiece (better beveling and a TRUE CHERRY finish though) as a regular USA "Limited Run", provided it was done right and wasn't 3K. I'll leave the PRSg for someone who really appreciates that sorta' thing.

I think it looks sweet! The carved top (like on the Diablos) is something cool and unique... I like having the separate neck/bridge knobs, but the layout on the carved top isn't bad - volumne is close for on the fly adjustment, volume swells, etc...

 

The colour is beautiful! And Burstbucker Pros too. The tuners are about the only thing that bother me.

Nothing wrong with Grovers, man. They get the job done. TonePros Klusons should come standard on all Gibsons though, if you want my opinion. But I love Grovers on SG's.

 

I showed this model to a friend of mine yesterday and he said "that's the pointiest Paul Reed Smith I ever saw"

I'm not much for flame tops either but man that's one good looking hunk o' wood. Got a price quote today for $2300 from a local (non-GC) guitar store. Not bad but for that much dough it should at least have a bound neck.

 

Just visiting the SG forum from the Les Paul side. I've already bored those guys with my gassin' for the Autumn burst so I thought I'd come visit here for a little bit.

 

My thinking is that this would be Les Paul sounding but a little lighter and better upper fret access. Or do you think that's way off mark?

Carved - not flat, some conture on the body top.

 

Quilted - a nicely figured piece of maple wood.
