Lookee here what Santa brung me... It's the 2014 Gibson SG Special in Chocolate Satin. 150th anniversary inlay & such. It's my first shortscale & so far am very pleased with is. The playability is amazing. And I am a fan of Gibson basses...I have three. I had briefly discussed on an earlier thread that I was waiting on this, but have been unable to post until now due to the holidays, in-laws, kids, snowstorms, life in general. I couldn't believe that the wife greenlighted this purchase & the price point on these things are amazing. This was also my first instrument purchase from Sweetwater, who also get high marks. They rescued me from a Sam Ash debacle. Pics below, and please forgive me for taking the easy way out with the Sweetwater gallery pix. They are actually shots of my exact bass that they forwarded me while I was waiting on it to be delivered. And I also threw in a pic of it with it's Gibby cousins that also live in my house.
