Closest StoreSt. Catharines, Ontario
I always dreamed of owning a custom shop Gibson model and I've always been an SG fan, so this guitar was a "must have" when it was first announced by Gibson. I love the pseudo "Black Beauty" styling as opposed to the more typical three pick-up variants in white. Of course, the price point on this guitar compared to other custom shop models was also much better. I did swap the pick-ups because I'm a Seymour Duncan guy and the 498T is a little hot for my tastes but that's just personal preference. I love that it's just the standard two pick-up, two tone, two volume set-up - simple and effective. It's all I need. I took off half a point for quality because I don't think it was unreasonable to expect a custom shop model to not require a truss rod adjustment out of the box but it did. Luckily my local L&M made it right immediately and it has not needed any attention since. Perfectly straight neck, great action. Value - it's hard to truly rate. Yes, it's still expensive and yes there are excellent, cheaper SG alternatives out there. However, for me it was well worth it. It looks beautiful (the curvature on the horns is dynamite) and it plays like butter. I couldn't be happier.
