I had the bass version of that SG once a looong time ago, still may have the swimming pool-routed body lying around somewhere.
Total crap, any way You put it. IME anyway.
The solid bodies were considered sub-standard back in the day, and for a very good reason. I have no personal experience about their "better" models, like the one in question by op.
I wouldn't hold my breath though...
BTW, weren't there a thread a while back about someone re-discovering their childhood dream bass, only to be let down by the abysmal build quality, and then he had a luthier make him one that looked exactly the same.
Less the abysmal build quality and hardware, obviously
