    My first Gibson! She's an SG Supreme in Lava Burst from a limited run in 2007. I think they only made about 400 during a one week period that year. I've been looking for one of these for a couple of years now and jumped when I finally found it at GC.
    She plays nice. Very warm and mid focused on the mudbucker (which I think is actually a Tbird PU) but the bridge PU really dials in some sweet high end and crispness to go with the warm neck PU. It's only a 30" scale so no serious neck dive. The flame and burst finish combined with the two sharp horns give it a real devilish look. I think it's a keeper!

    Thanks. I'll give it a few more days of play time before I post an official review but for now I'm really liking how it fits in a classic rock mix.

    That's a great find, and it looks like it's in immaculate shape. I'm a huge SG fan, and went through the same hunt you did to find a 2007 SG with the natural maple top. Great basses. Congrats!

    That's a sweet pair you've got there! Looks like you've got a lot more Gibson short scale experience than I do. So what strings have you found work best on the SG? I haven't tried doing a set up on mine yet, the action is about average, looks like I could set it lower but I'll have to figure out how to adjust the bridge first. Anyway, still having lots of fun just experimenting with it.

    I had one of these Fireburst SG's once - one of the prettiest basses I've ever owned! Unfortunately I didn't realize it would be short scale, and it felt small like a guitar in my hands compared to my Thunderbirds so I had to sell it. Looked great and sounded like chocalte on that neck pickup. Glad it works for you!

    I had one in Natural. It was an awesome bass. But I had to sell it unfortunately. I would love to have it back.
