Regarding the handle, little apprehensive at first with this profile Slim Taper '60 because I do not like too thin rounds, but oh surprise, we made it without any problem (for me!). This is sure to handle compared to my SG Standard which rather act as a "beam", there is a big difference but what playing comfort! ...
In terms of weight it is lightweight (3Kg400) although it tends to sting a little nose against my video ... (hence my score of 9) ... This is a 24 round boxes too, so ... But hey, it's not too bad and a good strap, this small defect goes unnoticed.
Access to treble is common to all SG (very easy).
The sound .... This is where my title Saint "GRAIL" comes into its own: the two P-90 are excellent, whether plain, crunch or drive (or +).
The P-90 bridge delivers accurate sound can be both crystalline without being aggressive and sweet at once. In the crunch, perfect for blues, rock, besides this guitar is all about!
The P-90 neck is round very good for still shots and blues with a little crunch, it shows + "growling" but not runny and is super accurate too.
What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "bold", ....)? See High.
