Nice. I wish they'd bring his Casino back into production. (If it's out of production... seems to have sold out everywhere some time ago)

That would be the SG Special. I think they're still around. .
Yep - I have a 2016 one of these. Great guitar with zero tuning problems and a slim taper neck. Did swap the pickups for Kinman noiseless though as the noise was driving me nuts

That looks great. I love SG's, they're my favourite guitar. I haven't had tuning issues with any of the ones I've owned - no more than any other Gibson. They don't stay in tune like a Telecaster, that's for sure. As for the 24 fret neck, this appears to be just like the 50th Anniversary 24 fret model they did, where they've removed the piece of plastic at the body end of the neck and added 2 frets. That won't make any difference to stability versus the standard neck. Looks very cool, good price. What's not to like?

Too. Many. Pickups.
I had an HSH Strat and couldn't stop smacking the pickups until i converted it to HSS. Can't imagine how clumsy i'd be with a 'PPP.'

I've had SGs since the early 60s. Started with a 1961 SG Les Paul with the side ways vibrola my dad bought as a first guitar. Loved them ever since. None of the awful problems people whine about.:phones

If you can't set it up right yourself send it to Larry Cragg in California or Eric Daw in Idaho Falls. Both worth the price of shipping. They will square it away for you.:bow

Just beware switching positions:

Neck/Middle
All three
Middle/Bridge

I would not like to have to turn the proper volume down if that is how it only gets the neck or bridge by itself...

Especially the neck position...

Yeah, looks like each pickup has a dedicated volume knob, plus a master tone. If you drop the middle pickup volume to 0, you have a normal 3-way toggle (neck/neck+bridge/bridge) and then you can blend in the middle pickup where you want. In theory, I think this would work fine for me. The "quacky" neck/middle or middle/bridge positions would probably be something I stayed on for a full song anyways, and dropping the volume isn't a big deal. I ride my vol and tone knobs anyways.

Saw GC Jr this summer. I liked him before, but this show was just red hot. Nobody ever made me want a La Machine before. That yellow SG was way cool. I'd really like this one, too.

Looks amazing... love P90s in an SG, but gotta wonder if 24 frets with an SG's neck joint won't result in a neck like a whammy bar
Looks like they just extended the fretboard and added 2 more frets.

Doesn’t change a thing. An SG’s neck pickup has always been where it would be on a 24 fret guitar. They just made the fretboard longer.

So much for the “magic node” people are so obsessed with.
