    Agreed. Looks hideous with the 3 buckers but that finish is quite nice.

    I used to think the same thing...

    Then Tony Iommi convinced me that 3-pickup guitars are awesome. :D

    I always thought 3 humbuckers in a SG was gnarly, imo at least.

    Nice finish for sure. :yesway:

    Since my $200 bronze mockingbird BC Rich (first electric way back in the day :lol:) had a shiny/sparkly paint finish, I can never really see them as anything but cheap.

    The association in my head is strong, and yet I also really love that mockingbird haha. The neck has a really comfortable profile.

    The only thing that bugs me about three pickup SGs is that they usually have three-way switches. Wtf?

    How about some details on that Charvel you're trying to hide from us?

    I think they had Ibanez Pro Rocker bridges. Collen's was modified with a Kahler 7200.
