Great job on the SG-3 Sonichris, I was going to purchase that but I'm glad you did. A black SG-3 needed to be in circulation!

Yeah, that black is stunning. Definitely makes me want to get back into one.

Yeah! It’s an old refin though. Original burst is under the red and primer I think. Not sure whether to take it off or embrace the red.

^Maybe live with it a while and see? A very appropriate addition to your collection, I'll bet that you love it.

Ha - all it needed was a good clean and the nut reglued. Haven’t plugged it in yet but it strung up and intonated well, and it’s a breeze to play. The bridge is a work of art!

Dammit, missing two saddle height grub screws. Everything else works very nicely though.

Those are always either missing or can't be adjusted. :-/
