Jeff Tweedy signature SG?

Recommended Posts

Oh geez, you know what ruined my night? I think these are being finished in Blue Mist... not Pelham Blue. Who is the idiot that made that decision? )))): Gibson is always letting everyone down, it seems.

 

I e-mailed American Musical to confirm that it is indeed blue mist and not pelham blue. This is such a deal breaker for me ))):

Yeah, no matter what it's a beautiful guitar. I wonder if Jeff had a hand in the design? Maybe he picked the white pickguard and the color?

They probably didn't want two signature guitars in the same colour. That's my guess

Or this colour would be cool

Wilco Bike maker Todd Simeone;

Color was my main contribution, and when thinking about Wilco and their music, I could not picture anything but “dust blue” (which also happened to be a 1950's Ford truck color).

If I saw that and the black pickguard version next to each other in a store, I'd gravitate towards this new one. That thing looks really sharp.

Would love to try one out, not sure if any of my local stores are gonna bring this one in though. Hope this one doesn't have tuning issues, I've found SGs to be pretty bad with that generally.

I have tuning issues with my Les Paul (just a Studio) - perhaps it's a Gibson thing in general.

I would love to play the SG. I am sure one of the stores in Chicago will get one in.

 

I haven't been to a music store in quite a while, actually the last one was Rock N Roll Vintage Inc. up on the northside (in Chicago.) I think they filmed some of IATTBYH there. Beautiful store.

FYI, these are now in stock on Amazon.

 

I had been waiting since September for one on another site but canceled that and bought one on Amazon.

Do most signature guitars have the name (Tweedy, for instance) on the headstock - it seems a bit cheesy? It is a great looking guitar.

I just think I would want any signature/name on the back.

Very nice :thumbup

 

The name is on the Truss Rod Cover, those can easliy be replaced, just remember to save the original.
