Posted a few weeks ago about selling off some of my guitars, so I've sold my Melody Maker, Vintage V100gt, plus a load of unused guitar pedals, and my Blacktop telecaster is currently on the eBayz... That leaves me with my highway 1 Tele (my no 1 guitar), my Epiphone Riviera (sort of my first guitar, good guitar. Mega sentimental value but I don't really play it any more), and my Eko Ranger Vi (everyone needs an acoustic).

So I bought this:


I figure between this my Tele and my acoustic I've got all the guitars I need... I also have a bass but that's not a guitar... Right!?

Those SG3s are a great value. I assume you like huge, chunky necks?

My melody maker had a neck like a baseball bat. Advert for this said slim neck...

I like it! Would also like it more with a full size scratchplate Smile

Anyone after something similar (but with thinner neck and weirdo tuners) Thomann is selling these SG Future Tributes for less than 400(!)

My SG Jr arrived yesterday, and I almost had a Benecol "is this really how you pack a guitar?" rant at the seller, but held my tongue as through sheer luck it's in perfect shape. Update when I've played it for another day or two.

BONUSFACT: my first SG (a MIJ Tokai) was brown. I think they look good in brown.

That was short lived, place I ordered it from just called to tell me they don't have that in stock any more, they sold the last one earlier in the week... Bastard!

Sad I hate it when places don't update their ordering system in real time.

Nowhere else is carrying them? Not open to the idea of a Future Tribute?

I'd honestly love and SG but it's been so long since I dealt with the flat radius...

What on earth! Why do places do this? Does Thomann have the guitar in stock? The Euro is super weak right now.

Full size! Mine came with one and I wouldn't have it any other way. I can't seem to find any good pictures of it by itself, it is much more brown than it looks here...



Black 'guard + zebra 'bucker has become a thing for me it seems.

Need to wait on a refund now before I can do anything... "My order has been cancelled and has been passed on to the accounts dept for a refund" no mention of how long this will take.

File a claim, just say they've cancelled your order and not refunded you.

I was looking at the Future one, I couldn't live with those tuners tho. So bloody ugly.

Some demos online show versions with standard ones but I've not found em in any shops.
