Ugly, but could be kind of cool with TOM?

It's got a certain 80s-ZZ-Top charm to it. But no, walk away...

Oh I'm not in the market, but Gibson had some truly weird concepts in the 80's

I actually love this thing. I think the Steinberger bridge looks tits and I'm really curious about how that slim humbucker sounds.

those steinburger trems are AMAZING!!!
i played an sg with one. it had a single in the neck and a bucker in the bridge with the steingburger dealio. i wish i would have bought it but the 800 he wanted seemed too much for me at the time, tho totally worth it.

I once had the SG from the same series. It didn't have a trem but it was definitely aimed at the Metal market. It had a single coil in the neck position, some flash inlays and the neck was thin and flat.
Never really got on with it, swapped it for a Patrick Eggle as well, idiot.

I like, the white headstock, that little wisp of a pickguard, the pup and the bridge, and the body. Not the same old LP Junior.

That is seriously weird. I had a 1986 Junior that was a bit quirky, but that white one takes the cake.
