I love my SG Standard P-90. All the goodness of an SG Standard. Plus the even more goodness of P-90s.
I would love it if Gibson USA made “real” SG Specials again. Not what they call an SG Special these days…with uncovered humbuckers, decal on the headstock and no neck binding, but the ORIGINAL SG Special of the 1960s. P-90s, dot markers, bound neck. 3 on a plate Klusons with white plastic buttons. Real headstock inlay. And GLOSSY! Come on Gibson! How about it??
Ask Carlos…he knew!
(note: half face ‘guard, so his “Special” was made before ‘67. Also looks like it does not have 3-on-plate Klusons. It was a common “upgrade” in those days to change the tuners. Personally I love the originals….)
