I've just picked up an as-new and box fresh SG bass. It's one of the 120th anniversary models, a satin-finished chocolate brown shade. It's amazing - I previously owned a run-out model with the glossy finish. I went for a satin as I found the glossy far to shiny and slippery - I like a vintage vibe, and with the plain headstock and dots, and satin, it feels like an old one! I was wondering how it wears over time. Obviously these were made for a good while - I'd love to hear from any owners and their experiences how it looks after a few years useage. Why Gibson stopped these is unfathomable, it's an icon!
