I already have mine.

My gotta have it SG is the Gordie Johnson signature SG with P-94s and a huge headstock. Kick ***!

Have any of you listened to Grady or Big Sugar? If not you owe it to yourselves to hear this guy's tone.

Im LP man' date=' but if I had to choose an SG to call my own it would be the white guitar that

Mike Nesmith played in the 1968 movie "Head"

3 pups and that gorgeous white finish...[/quote']

Yep, SG Custom w/Maestro... The Historoc versions are great examples of the vintage. Alot more playable to than some of the vintage SG Customs I have seen oveer the recent years...

Still getting used to my new Fireburst Supreme, only had for 4 about weeks but the verdict is in - I love it. It plays like nothing else I've ever picked on. The playability is second only to the looks - it's gorgous. The 57's are a great fit, but i had to lower mine a little, too close to the string, giving it too hot a signal & cutting down a little on the sustain - which is great coming from the maple top.

It's no '61 reissure, but it is one to consider.

That's easy...it'd be a early-to-mid-60's "Historic" reissue SG Standard with the following features:

 

1) Proper front-view body outline

2) Authentic-looking beveling/contouring/horn-tapering

3) TRUE "Cherry" non-faded/non-aged Red finish (or I'd settle for a Pelham Blue one...lol), with the right amount of wood filler/sealer and actual finish and clear coat so it's not going to look all orange-peely or sink into the wood grain

4) Chrome Hardware (so I can play it without mucking up the hardware like I do with nickel)

5) Tone Pros Klusons or Grover tuners

6) Nylon saddle bridge (with a roller-saddle bridge to be added by me later for performances)

7) Burstbucker Pro pickups

8) Maestro Vibrola (duh)

9) Straplocks

10) My name on the truss rod cover =P~

 

Actually I can do without 9 and 10, but the other stuff's a no-brainer.
