What is your opinion of this product?
Its a true Gibson SG, minus the paint job, pick-guard, and trapezoid inlays. It actually looks great without the pick-guard in my humble opinion, thats what made me look twice to begin with. The natural wood finish look is also a huge plus to me. I love it. As far as tone, the 490's are great sounding pups. Very warm, with plenty of punch. Overall, Gibson hit a home run with this one. To get an American made Gibson SG of this quality for this price is an absolute steal.
