Hey guys,

Am tempted to pull my trigger on a TV yellow LP special. However, having not owned a single SG my own life, I was wondering if I should consider the Pelham blue SG Special or the SG Junior from the Series.

I had LP juniors before in both single cut and double-cut format. Sold them cos the Custom Shop version has neck that is too huge for my style.

Owners of the following. Will love to hear your opinions and why you chose one over the rest:

Gibson Original Collection - TV yellow Les Paul Special
Gibson Original Collection - Pelham blue SG special
Gibson Original Collection - SG Junior
Gibson Original Collection - SG with Mastero whammy

Thanks!

The SGs have the slim taper neck. My 2020 OC Special has a neck similar to my R7 and 63 Melody Maker. Feels good in my hand.

I've placed an order for a TV special since it's one I've wanted since teenager let's see when it arrives. Hoping for good weight and darker fretboard.

You weren't able to choose weight or which guitar? Where from? Anyway. Yeah I hope you get a great one!!:salude

Just collected mine! Made in aug 2020. Wishing the fretboard is darker but I'm impressed with the workmanship!

Put some oil on that board Quilttop. Mine darkened up quite a bit. I use Fret Doctor.

I've actually used Nomad on it before string change. It did darken a little bit. No local dealer for Fret Doctor here. Will explore.
