China of course, splendid color lake placid blue kind but greenish tint, mine has a white pearl pickguard wow.
Gloss over, quite thick, zero defects.
Alnico pickups and split, standard panel with push-pull on volumes.

22 frets, vintage tuning machines BUT that hold the guitar in tune well.
Very well finished, very good neck, ditto frets, what more can we ask for?

Compared to the SG400 worn brown, here for you 35 euros more: coil split and more powerful pickups, volume push-pull, stop and tail is equipped with anti-drop rods. In addition, this is a very limited edition design.


Always compared to 400 wb, the handle has the same profile, but the paint is much thicker so it is larger in the leg.
The pelham blue is much heavier and colder to the touch. The handle is slower than the wb, varnishes oblige.
The sound is different from the vacuum by the complete pickguard is cooler and slamming.

In fact, the brown is pretty worn separately in current production, not necessarily a good comparison.
This pelham blue is very nice to play, lightweight mechanical and heavy body rather give it a perfect balance.

Technically, the microphones are mounted connector, and volumes are a part with connector and split, everything else being welded. It is seen, therefore has an interrupt signal (Gigi my <a rel="nofollow" href="/lp-shaped-guitar/gibson/les-paul-series-les-paul-studio-ebony-w-gold-hardware/?utm_source=audiofanzine&utm_medium=link&utm_campaign=netting&utm_content=product&utm_term=LP+Studio" target="_blank">lp studio</a> has three more). Moreover, it is easy to speak, I can reverse the phases mics for good coils in split mode and it was a breeze without soldering or anything.


It is here that the difference with the sg 400wb is the clearest, the microphones are much more aggressive and rock is what you expect from a sg and no need to change as they are resistant to feedback.
Their tone is pretty cool, with a nice smoothness (the grain is fine), and they are also effective in clean (not drool not serious) than distal (they do well the amp). In simple mode is nice, especially the microphone that allows serious game "tire" which fly blues overdrive.
Anyway nothing to do with the microphones smokey-jazz of his sister!

Light Coats only very flat, totally unjustified given the price, single coil mode the microphones do not cancel all the noise ...


Well, it's been three months, rather frequent use (ideal shape to play sprawled on the couch!), And I adore.
Ridiculous for the difference compared to the 400 standard is no hesitation it's downright offered (a pickguard costing 39, a pushpull 18 ... and there are 2!) All the microphones are well in sg mind.

At this level of achievement, you can really ask the question: why take the U.S.?

Too bad for the grumpy, given the quality offered and the price I can not put the note max everywhere.
