I had always wanted a SG, and first and foremost, this fit my wallet. Second thing I noticed was it's interesting color coupled with a sparkly hologram-esque pickguard. Lastly, the lack of a neck pickup was in a way a blessing- sometimes I feel a bit guilty letting it "go to waste"

All in all, it's a great guitar for what it is: function over form, Hard rock machine.
Model Year: 1999
Price: $400.00
Where Obtained: Ebay
Features:
American made Mahogany 24 frets (refretted by previous owner) 1 volume 1 tone 1 coil tap Gibson USA treble humbucker, passive Burnt pumpkin finish (that's what it reminds me of, anyhow) standard SG shapes
Playability:
Got the action nice and low without any hassles. The neck is great, much better than the '01 Flying V I used to have... not as chunky, but still substantial enough. Currently it's my second best guitar, has great feel when playing.
Sound Quality:
The sound is still rather classic rock like any other SG, but with the coil tap you can get a halfway to telecaster type of sound.
Durability:
A very simple and solid guitar, I've only set it up once.. a few hours after it was delivered (received it early winter, had to sit for a few hours to come to temperature.) Tunes up smoothly, no noticed slipping... even when I start to dig in, bash strings or go for 1 1/2 step or more bends, a no nonsense guitar.
